Nikita & Moji’s Hindu Destination Wedding in Los Cabos

hindu-destination-wedding-cabo-san-lucas-momentos-los-cabos_0001

Do you believe in love stories? Nikita and Moji’s story is a beautiful love story, and a wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, makes it all the better.

“We met at a Hindu summer camp when we were very young. We started dating in May of 2005. We have been together since and lived together for almost eight years. We have been through our ups and downs and have consistently supported each other through our relationship. He asked me to marry him April 4, 2014, in Kauai, Hawaii. The proposal was magical. We took a helicopter tour of the Na Pali coast in Kauai and landed at Jurassic Falls where he proposed to me. The reason we have on blue booties in the proposal picture is because the land is untouched in that area of Kauai so we could not even walk on it! I am so excited to marry him finally. We have been together for over a decade and are high school sweethearts.”

It was this touching story that gave a unique zest to Nikita and Moji’s special day. The bride and groom’s families helped plan a beautiful and colorful traditional Hindu wedding together with us. A delicious lunch at Flora’s Farm by the groom’s family and a delicious dinner by the bride’s parents tipped off the wedding day in their honor just a day before the wedding.

It was an absolute dream to see a wedding that embraced every single aspect of Hindu culture, from Nikita’s traditional mehndi (henna) to Moji’s baraat (a wedding kick-off dance by the groom and his family) from the hotel to the ceremony. Even more magical was the milni, the unity of the two families. The bride’s parents welcomed Moji with the aarti, placing red powder in his head, followed by the exchange of the flower garlands between the bride and the groom – promising their forever love.

Every detail tailored to the bride and groom’s traditional culture… except for the cuisine. Mexican cookies and horchata greeted their guests at the start of the celebration, and an exquisite dinner sealed the day’s palate delights. Nikita and Moji entertained their guests with an exhilarating fire show, while fire flares and sparkles illuminated the evening sky. It was a magical and unforgettable today for the families and for us.

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!

Kristen & Bobby’s Romantic Destination Wedding in Los Cabos

cabo-wedding-planner-fatima-momentos-los-cabos_0015

Every time I look at Kristen and Bobby’s wedding photos, I remember their beautiful wedding day in Los Cabos, and all the laughs and tears of joy we shared on their special day.  I have to say that Kristen and Bobby are a brilliant couple; not only they are both extremely good looking, but they are also incredibly kind and beautiful people as well.  Bobby is a real gentleman, like the ones we dream about from the classic movies, and I loved how much love and attention he has for Kristen.

Kristen and Bobby contacted me two months before their wedding day, and three days later I was already hosting them in Cabo San Lucas for a site inspection.  We were on the same page since the very beginning, and I was so honored and happy to be able to help them make their dream come true!  We found a beautiful private villa for their memorable intimate wedding in Puerto Los Cabos, called “Paraiso Perduto,” or Paradise Lost.

Besides making sure that their wedding day will go as planned (and dreamed), Kristen and Bobby were mostly concerned that their guests would have a fantastic day and enjoy their stay in Los Cabos. They prepared a lot of details for their guests during their stay, and everyone was enjoying greatly their stay and Kristen and Bobby’s beautiful wedding day.

For their wedding day we organized different musicians; a soft guitar for their ceremony, a trio of Mexican musicians for their cocktail hour and dinner. Before the dinner all the guests went to the beach to watch the sunset, and celebrate Kristen and Bobby with sparklers. Afterwards, we continued with a fire show and a fun karaoke finale.

Much love always to my beautiful bride & groom! You will be in my hearts 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.

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.

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!

Darlene & Nolan’s Cabo Destination Wedding

cabo-wedding-planner-momentos-los-cabos-fatima-falcon_0016

Darlene and Nolan from San Jose, California, have been to Cabo San Lucas in the past, and fell in love with its colors, the ocean, the people and amazing food.  When they got engaged, they agreed they’d love to have a destination wedding – and the first place that came to their mind was Cabo!

cabo-wedding-planner-momentos-los-cabos-fatima-falcon_0001

We started their wedding planning process about a year before the wedding.  I loved planning their wedding with Darlene, she’s an excellent planner, with attention to details and with a defined vision.

cabo-wedding-planner-momentos-los-cabos-fatima-falcon_0002

We met about 4 months before their wedding in Los Cabos, where they met all their providers, and they fell in love with the meals, which Hacienda Cocina was preparing for their wedding dinner.  While visiting various Cabo San Lucas restaurants, in search of the perfect place for a rehearsal dinner, they were enamored with the restaurant Los Tres Gallos.  They were fascinated with the decoration of the restaurant, the bar, and of course, the delicious traditional Mexican food.

cabo-wedding-planner-momentos-los-cabos-fatima-falcon_0007

For their wedding decoration Darlene and Nolan were looking for something formal, but still suitable for the beach, and with lots of colors, honoring Mexico and its traditions.  Lola from Florenta prepared stunning flower designs, which perfectly complemented the elegant beach wedding setup.

cabo-wedding-planner-momentos-los-cabos-fatima-falcon_0006

Nolan’s brother had a fantastic opening speech; he’s a sales manager, and he brought flip chart paper and drew graphics during the speech.  We all laughed and had so much fun!

Zulema and Sean are a beautiful, elegant couple!  I was very excited when we started planning the wedding with Zulema; she has an exquisite taste and wanted her wedding to show their personalities; to be elegant and romantic, with a touch of a latin flavor.

Half of their wedding party was of latin origin and Zulema wanted to spice up the wedding and warm up the ambiance.  She loves a show of Brazillian drums batucada, and her idea was spot on, very original and energizing!  After their portrait session, Zulema and Sean entered as Mr. and Mrs. to the reception area accompanied with the group of Brazillian dancers and drum players.  All the invited loved the show and soon joined Zulema and Sean on the dance floor as well!

Zulema and Sean’s wedding turned out beautifully and just as they imagined, if not better.  But that said, the wedding planning didn’t all go as we planned – just one and a half month before the wedding, hurricane Odile hit Cabo San Lucas.

The damage in the area was extensive, with many hotels, restaurants and homes ruined or with a lot of damage, we had no electricity, water, phone lines and other utilities.  But – we were determined to make the wedding happen, and we did it!  The restaurant, the hotels, and all the providers did everything possible to make this wedding come true, and thus start a new chapter after Odile with Zulema and Sean.

Our bride and groom enjoyed immensely their wedding getaway in Los Cabos, from their rehearsal dinner at the Tres Gallos restaurant, to the last minute of their wedding, which they enjoyed very much, together with all their guests!

It was a great honor for me helping Zulema and Sean make their Cabo San Lucas wedding a dream come true, and I wish them all the best in their new chapter of life together as a husband and wife!
