Ashley’s feedback on Wedding Wire:
“Fatima is such a star. She is the best wedding planner ever. We planned our dream wedding in 5 short months, and Fatima was with us every step of the way. Not only did the day go off seamlessly, but she also helped me to incorporate special details to showcase our style throughout the weekend. She provides helpful feedback and recommendations for all aspects of the wedding, and there was zero stress leading up to it. Let me repeat. Zero stress leading up to the wedding for me, my mom, my mother in law, the groom, etc. We have heard time and time again, that our wedding was the best wedding ever and we are so thankful we had Fatima to lead us. I can’t thank her enough for giving us the best day of our lives. If you are considering a Cabo wedding, Fatima is your girl. Love her!”
Ashley and Dylan are such a lovely and fun couple! Their home is in Austin, Texas, and they dreamed of doing a Cabo San Lucas destination wedding and celebrate with a group of 80 of their friends and family. We got in touch about 4 months before their wedding, and started with preparations quickly!
Their priority was to have a great band; therefore we based the final date of the wedding on the availability of one of the excellent local music groups, Kilometro band. We then chose Cabo del Sol as the Cabo wedding venue and Sheraton Hotel as the host hotel.
We planned quickly and effectively, Ashley knew exactly what they wanted their destination wedding celebration to look like, and with my 15 years of experience as a Cabo San Lucas wedding planner, I knew precisely which wedding vendors would be suitable to help make Ashley & Dylan’s wedding dreams come true!
Two months before the wedding Ashley and her best friend Cristy came to Cabo San Lucas so we could review all the plans, and see the details of the wedding. During this trip, we also selected Mi Casa restaurant as the place to hold a rehearsal dinner. It was a short but productive trip, and Ashley, Cristy, and myself we had a lot of fun in planning Ashley’s wedding celebrations!
Ashley fell in love with Mi Casa restaurant because of their delicious Mexican food, the privacy it offers, festive Mexican decor, and also because it was a special place for Ashley’s sister – she got engaged there! After the tasting menu, Ashley and Cristy remained convinced that this would be the perfect place to start the celebrations!
For the rehearsal day, we organized the dinner in the back part of the restaurant, which offers the most privacy. Chantal Corian created beautiful flower decorations, and the music was provided by the restaurant. Needless to say, Ashley & Dylan’s wedding guests were thrilled with the dinner and charm of the restaurant, and the best (and most emotional in every meaning of the word, from laughing hard to sobbing!) was the open mic and guest speeches! After this evening, we all were ready to continue celebrating Ashley & Dylan’s love even more!
The wedding day was beautiful, just like everything you imagined about your Cabo destination wedding was painted in front of you, but it was even better – it was real! The guests loved the ocean view wedding ceremony location at Cabo del Sol. Ashley & Dylan decided to not see each other before the ceremony, and seeing how they were looking at each other when she was walking down the aisle, brought tears to the eyes of many guests, including me! Dylan was so sweet, he wouldn’t stop looking at his gorgeous bride walking toward him, and admiring his wife to be! From that moment on, the entire wedding celebrations ran smoothly and with so much love!
I loved the personal details that Ashley and her friends made for the wedding; a unique piece was a dream catcher for the chuppah, and cute tambourines they used for the first dance.
Dylan’s special request for the band was to sing with them Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door by Guns N’ Roses! The entire wedding party stood up and cheered on during his performance, it was spectacular! As expected, the Kilometro band created a fantastic ambiance, and the guests did not stop dancing! It was amazing! During the party, we shared with guests some fun props like colorful maracas and Mexican sombreros, which added a spark and enhanced the party!
The wedding planning of Ashley & Dylan’s wedding was short but intense and super productive. We instantly made a strong connection with the couple, and we have become great friends! Ashley returned to Los Cabos 4 months after their wedding, we met and loved remembering all the beautiful moments of their wedding celebrations, and laughed at all the anecdotes. It was such a pleasure to plan their wedding, become part of their lives, and I can’t wait to see them both in Cabo again!
Mucho amor para siempre!
