Yolanda & Allen’s Cabo Destination Wedding

romantic-cabo-wedding_0017

Sometimes in your life when you think you are ready for something or someone, the Lord knows better!
He started out as an acquaintance, who knew he would become my best friend!
All of our lives we have been within arms reach of each other for many years.
His mom taught at my grammar school… but it was not time for us to meet!
He lived less than a mile away from me for many years… yet it was not time…
We frequented the same restaurants, were on the same blocks and walked the same paths that I once did as a teenager… but still it was not time…
Who would have known we would be in the state of Ohio at the same time… but unfortunately the Lord knew it was not time….
He almost purchased a house right next door from my parents home… and unbelievably it still was not time!
Then he purchased the very same building I resided in… Who would imagine that it still was not time…
I moved out… because it was not the right time.
Then Life threw me a curve ball and life’s lessons prepared me to meet him and become his best friend, soul mate and through God’s Grace, his WIFE!

See, the destiny knew, even if we didn’t… that finally it was about TIME!

– Yolanda

Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters. And although their paths were crossing throughout all their lives, they did not meet until it was the right time for Yolanda and Allen to find each other and fall in love. This beautiful love story above was written by our bride, Yolanda herself.

Yolanda was the sweetest bride, and with Allen the make the most adorable couple. She chose her venue and contacted me to help her make her wedding dreams come true. She did not know Los Cabos, so I helped her with suggestions, local wedding providers, and took care of all the planning and logistics so that her day would be as she imagined.  We were planning their wedding for almost a year, and I loved the entire process.  Yolanda was always so friendly and nice; she had a clear idea of what she wanted to achieve with her wedding decor, how she wanted her guests to feel, and how their entire wedding experience would be.  Almost 100 guests from Chicago came to celebrate Yolanda and Allen’s love in Los Cabos.  They all loved the location and the entire wedding weekend, which included a warm-up welcome party, and a bonfire at the beach one day before the wedding.

On her wedding day, Yolanda was relaxed and calm.  Everything she dreamt of her wedding day to be, was becoming reality. The beach wedding ceremony, the decor, beautiful flowers, and a dance night to remember. Their fairytale-like wedding day concluded with magical fireworks.

Much love to them forever!

A Dream Wedding Come True in Cabo San Lucas for Katherine & Amir

sunset da mona lisa wedding

I’ll always remember planning Katherine and Amir’s wedding weekend in Cabo San Lucas.  They are such a lovely couple, they worked together seamlessly and truly dedicated to creating the most memorable day ever for them as well as for their family and loved ones, who traveled from all around the world to stand beside them when they said: “I do.”

The eight months of planning went by very quickly – both Kat and Amir participated in the planning process, they knew exactly what they were looking for, and chose the wedding vendors who suited their style the most.  We had a very fun process of choosing the location, and our favorite was of course the food tasting (not to mention the stunning sunset views of the Sea of Cortez and the Land’s End from Sunset da Mona Lisa restaurant)!

For their three-day wedding celebration, we organized a rehearsal dinner at a lovely Mexican restaurant Tres Gallos, for a wedding day location we chose Sunset da Mona Lisa, and the next day we went for a boat tour with all the invitees, and thus continued the celebrations. Their wedding day was very emotional – it was a day when two very special people joined their lives, when two cultures united, in a place where two oceans join as one.

Organic and Garden Inspired Cabo Wedding for Sarah & Devin

sunset-da-mona-lisa-intimate-cabo-wedding-momentos-los-cabos_0021

When you know how you’d like your wedding day to look like, you don’t need an entire year to plan it (even if it’s a Cabo San Lucas destination wedding!). Just ask Sarah and Devin, and they’ll happily tell you the story of how we planned their beautiful intimate wedding in only 3 months!  After 7.5 years together, a house, some traveling and a puppy, Devin finally decided to surprise Sarah and popped the question during a pumpkin carving competition. She said YES! and decided on tying the knot down in Mexico.

Sarah and Devin imagined an intimate wedding in sunny Cabo San Lucas for a company of 10 guests.  I loved their vision and we started working on their ideas immediately. We worked together with a team of local wedding vendors, that could grasp and make come true their vision and style perfectly.  I loved how Devin’s sister Blair’s contributed a lot to the style and feel of the wedding through her company Blair Nadenau Millinery, with many wedding details like bridal veils and a belt for the wedding dress, Sarah’s hair crown, hair adornments for both moms, and other details.

The wedding decor that Sarah & Devin imagined was very intimate, garden like, organic an natural. Lola from Florenta Flower Design designed a very original altar for them with original planters, aromatic plants, ficus leaves and other greenery. Devin’s sister Blair made another surprise for the happy couple, and she decorated their wedding table with the couple’s portraits. I can’t miss to mention the cutest cake topper, which was a pair of cats, namely both Sarah and Devin love cats, as well as personalized tequila bottles, their wedding favors.

After the cake cutting and dinner, the newlyweds and their guests boarded the limousine and lived on happily ever after!

Sarah & Devin’s wedding day was a day full of love and celebration, and for me personally it was an honor to be part of their special day.

Kyle & Jordan’s Sunny Destination Wedding in Cabo San Lucas

celebrity wedding planner cabo san lucas

NFL Player Kyle Rudolph, tight end for the Minnesota Vikings, first met Jordan Nine their sophomore year of college at the University of Notre Dame.  They felt connected from their first encounter — Jordan’s last name happened to be Kyle’s football number throughout high school and college — and when friends commented that they were meant to be, the two couldn’t help but feel the same. After five years together, Kyle decided to pop the question in October 2015, and their wedding was set to happen in sunny Los Cabos on February 13, 2016.

“We absolutely love Cabo and had been to dinner at Hacienda Cocina y Cantina while on vacation two years ago.  We loved the location, the view, food, and how close it is to everything. It was the perfect place for our wedding.

Planning with Jordan was a breeze, we did it all in 4 months and the final result was spectacular!  We set up the wedding ceremony by the main pool and with Land’s End as a beautiful backdrop. The cocktail hour was at the pool area as well, where guests enjoyed ocean views and delicious local cuisine. Afterward, the party moved inside Hacienda Cocina & Cantina for the reception, where guests found rectangular tables topped with bright clusters of flowers. Bold-hued roses and greenery were arranged in antique-inspired gold vessels for a look that felt both formal and fun. Glittering gold table numbers completed the look. The menu was inspired by Cabo with delicious fajitas and signature margaritas.

One of my favorite moments at the wedding, besides being there for the happy couple and helping them make their dreams come true, was the first look with Jordan’s father and brother. it was such a precious moment, neither of them could hide their emotions and tears.

Much love to you Jordan & Kyle, and thank you for having me be part of your big day!
Love,
Fatima

A Love Less Ordinary: Jennifer & David 

hacienda cabo wedding jennifer david

We met almost 11 years ago in college. Got married in November 21st of 2013 in a court house and now planning a celebration in Cabo on November 22nd of 2015 with our loved ones. David and I would hardly consider ourselves traditional and we did things a little backwards but it works for us! 🙂

This cute introduction was a part of Jenn’s first email to me, inquiring about helping me plan and make come true their wedding celebration in Cabo San Lucas.  At that moment I knew, that planning Jennifer & David’s wedding would not only be very fun, but also very special.  We connected immediately and started the planning process about 10 months before the D day.

Both Jennifer and David are an amazing couple.  They are beautiful, loving, friendly, intelligent, and very busy.  Jennifer is a design consultant,  and David is a web developer, he designs, programs and market websites for different types of industries. With their design background, I knew their wedding decor will be beautiful as they both have an excellent taste. They are foodies, they love traveling, yoga, golf, and their 3 dogs, Ella, Bambi, and Pumpkin.

Since their destination wedding was in November, they chose Mexico inspired autumn colors for their wedding flowers and decor. Dark green, red, purple, orange and yellow were some of the colors we used for the flowers decorations. Paired with her stunning white lace dress and blue colors of Cabo sky and sea, it looked wonderful.

Congratulations once again dear Jennifer & David!  It is my honor to be part of your beach wedding celebration in Cabo San Lucas,

Love,
Fatima

Kellie & Russ’s Hacienda Cabo Wedding

Hacienda-Cabo-wedding-momentos-los-cabos_0017
Kellie and Russ are a beautiful couple from San Francisco.  We immediately felt the connection on our fist call, and I am so happy they chose me as their destination wedding planner!  They were looking for a private, intimate wedding celebration ocean side in Cabo San Lucas with their dearest ones, and together with the recommended wedding vendors we made their dreams come true!

I love how both Kellie and Russ knew exactly how they wanted their best day ever to be like.  An intimate celebration of their love at the beach with the Land’s End and Sea of Cortez as a backdrop, and a starlight dinner on the beach, accompanied by the sound of the waves and music to dance to.  Their color theme was elegant white and sunny yellow, and we made sure all the details were matching.  The florist Lola from Florenta Los Cabos did a beautiful job with the bouquet and florals for the wedding ceremony and reception.  The team at Hacienda Cocina created a delicious menu and wedding cake.

Kellie and Russ’s wedding day in Cabo was beautiful and sunny, and the night starry, just as they imagined.  It was a beautiful and unforgettable wedding celebration, and I am honored to be part of their day.

Monica & Lukas’s Destination Wedding at Pitahayas, Cabo del Sol

momentos-los-cabos-destination-wedding-cabo-san-lucas-_0013

Love makes the world go around! I love this saying, and Monica and Lukas’s love is living proof.  They met at a university in Mexico, fell in love, and decided they want to spend the rest of their lives together.

Their love is so big that not even the hurricane could stop their wedding plans!  They were planning their wedding for May 2015, but the hotel that they booked to host their wedding at first was damaged so badly that the repairs wouldn’t be finished by their wedding date.  So we started working on a new solution between Los Cabos and Sweden to make their day the best day ever!

Monica and Lukas trusted me and my recommendations for their new wedding location completely, and I am so grateful for that.  They visited Cabo San Lucas for a site inspection twice, first to choose the location and vendors, and second time – for the most delicious part of the wedding planning – food and cake tasting at Pitahayas restaurant in Cabo del Sol community.

Monica and Lukas are an amazing couple, and I am thankful that they chose me to plan their wedding.  They are beautiful, loving and friendly, and such was their wedding day!  Their friends and families accompanied them for the celebration of their wedding day from La Paz, Sweden and many other parts of the world, and enjoyed the celebrations until the end.

Monica and Lukas’s Cabo destination wedding turned out just as they dreamed of, and I dare say even more special because of everything they went through because of the hurricane aftermath. I’m glad they still decided to continue with their wedding plans in Los Cabos, and support the destination. They enjoyed their day a lot, and I’m so happy to be part of their special day.

Trish & Ernesto’s Romantic Destination Wedding in Cabo San Lucas

hacienda-cabo-san-lucas-destination-wedding-momentos-los-cabos_0004

What can be more romantic than celebrating your love at a beautiful beach, with the sounds of the ocean and a starry sky with closest family and friends?  No wonder that Trish and Ernesto chose Cabo San Lucas as the place where they will take one step forward and unite their love in marriage in front of their loved ones.

Trish and I worked together over the distance for almost one year, planning their beautiful dream wedding. The destiny had it that Trish and Ernesto, from Hayward, California, were invited to a wedding at Capella Pedregal (The Resort at Pedregal) a couple of months ago, when they were still engaged. The destination, the little fishing town, the most delicious food and the friendliest people convinced them that Cabo San Lucas is the place where they too would like to get wed. She contacted me, and we started working on making her dreams come true.

Trish imagined a romantic, casual wedding, with some flowers and lots of candles, Papel Picado and other details. With Ernesto, they prepared details like menus, place cards, table numbers, and Trish herself made her wedding bouquet and boutonnieres with silk flowers, which I loved!

We set round dance floor at the beach, which was a hit as the wedding party didn’t leave the dance floor until the final hour. The entire wedding party had a great energy, and the bride and groom had a wonderful wedding day, just like they imagined it to be. Hacienda Cocina team provided a top service and catering as always, and it was wonderful to work with the entire team of providers for making Trish & Ernesto’s wedding a dream come true!

Hacienda Cocina y Cantina Romantic Cabo Wedding for Samah & Matt

Hacienda-Cocina-Cabo-San-Lucas-Wedding_0017

I can’t think of a more romantic thing than tying the knot at a romantic beach in sunny Mexico with the person you love the most and surrounded with people who love you the most!  Such was the Cabo San Lucas destination wedding of Samah and Matt, and it was my greatest pleasure to help them make their big day come true.

Samah and Matt are a beautiful couple, who love Los Cabos and visit it often, and with gorgeous weather and 350 sunny days per year, I’m not surprised they chose it as their wedding destination!  Samah has Egyptian origins, and Matt Italian-American origins, and together they make such a unique and beautiful couple.  Their wedding guests join them in their celebrations from around the world, and they all enjoyed and had lots of fun with everything that Samah and Matt prepared for them.  They created an extensive Mexican menu with most of their favorite dishes, flew in their favorite band from San Francisco, and had spectacular fireworks.

Samah wished for a romantic, casual and fun wedding, so we planned the decor accordingly, and organized food stations with the Hacienda Cocina y Cantina team.  For the setup we used wooden chairs and tables from the restaurant, we decorated it with lace table runner and romantic floral arrangements in coral, blush, white, gold and soft blue.  Samah works in tourist and events industry, and her sister has worked in wedding planning as well, so it was exciting to work with them, because they had a clear vision on how their wedding would look like.

After wedding planning through distance, we finally met with Samah & Matt about 3 months before their wedding, when they came for site inspection and to finalise all the details.  During this visit they also had their engagement session with the most incredible sunset!

It was a pleasure being part of Samah & Matt’s big day, and I wish them all the love and happiness in the world!

Annette & John’s Destination Wedding in Los Cabos

350 days of sunshine, proximity to the United States and the natural beauty of Los Cabos were just some of the reasons Annette and John chose this lovely Mexico destination for the place where they would start their lives as husband and wife.

My first contact was with our bride Annette’s sister, Claudia.  I loved the fact she was so dedicated in helping her sister have her dream wedding, and enjoyed working with her and Annette greatly.  On our second call, Annette, Claudia and I were talking about their vision for the wedding, and already then I could see this wedding will be beautiful and full of emotions.

The bride and groom’s parents came to visit Los Cabos after we started planning the wedding, and it was touching to see how both families were excited and united in making this day a very special and unforgettable, not only for Annette and John, but for everyone who will be attending!  Together we had fun site inspections, looking for a perfect location for the wedding to take place at.  And after the visit to Sheraton Los Cabos, they were fascinated with the hotel, the architecture, the food, and what was very important to them – they have a chapel on the property for their religious ceremony – and the decision was made!  Hacienda Cocina y Cantina enchanted them with their beach ambient and location, so we decided to host a rehearsal dinner there.

Annette and John’s wedding day was beautiful!  A wedding party of 90 people gathered at the chapel to celebrate their marriage union, and afterwards we continued the celebrations at the restaurant De Cortez.  Their wedding decoration was white and royal blue with traditional talavera accents.  At the end of the evening, Annette and John surprised their guests with beautiful fireworks.  And for me, the most emotional was the closing of the night, when all the guests made a circle hugging each other around the newlyweds and thus celebrated their union.  It was a beautiful and emotional gesture, and a memorable way to wrap up Annette and John’s wedding day.

I was honored they chose me to plan their prefect wedding day in Los Cabos, and wish them all the love in the world!
