We love when couples incorporate their unique personality into every detail to their wedding day, and, as you will be able to see from the photos below, Carrie and Pete made their day gleam with artistry, charm and polished elegance.
Originally from Texas, Carrie and Pete wished their wedding celebrations to take place in charming Cabo San Lucas. I was mesmerized by their friendly and fun personalities, which fueled a spark in me to take their unique wedding weekend celebrations head on! We created two events for 120 guests in only two months of anticipation. Together with our excellent team and with the help of Jenci, Pete’s assistant, we were able to create nothing less but magic!
Carrie and Pete wished that both events, their rehearsal dinner, and their destination wedding are filled with Mexican colors, details, and traditional delicious Mexican food. For the rehearsal dinner at Edith’s, an exquisite traditional restaurant in Cabo, we used elaborate Mexican ‘sarapes’ adorning the chairs, and blossoms of flowers scattered across the table. Carrie looked stunning in her colorful embroidered dress. A cake, which was indeed a masterpiece, and touching, heart-warming speeches tied the fabulous night and prepared the guests for celebrations the next day.
On the day of Carrie & Pete’s wedding, Hacienda Cocina & Cantina closed their doors to the public, and thus the celebrations were even more intimate for the entire family and guests. The setting was stunning, laced with traditional Mexican details, accentuated with hues of blue, red, and golden tones. Striking hand-made iron chandeliers hung from the terrace, hand-painted signs by Serendipity adorned the place, custom-made maracas and a variation of centerpieces with tall chandeliers, low candle holders, and beautiful floral centerpieces were displayed on elegant tables. It was an enthralling display full love and celebration, and one of the most magical nights full of love, good wishes, and laughter.
Time flew by in a blink of an eye as Carrie and Pete danced, laughed and celebrated with their loved ones; but for me, moments with them will never be forgotten and always cherished.
