There’s nothing quite like designing a wedding that becomes an extension of a couple, the ultimate representation of who they are and what their style entails. With Saleemah and Martin, we had the opportunity to craft a glamorous wedding in Los Cabos –a traditional, elegant celebration, adorned with details that truly mirrored the couple’s personality.
Let’s delve into this story and explore its highlights.
The Love Story
Martin had been friends with Saleemah’s cousin since they were both 8 years old, and it was he who played matchmaker for the two. The proposal took place on November 5, 2022, precisely on Saleemah’s birthday, during a beautiful dinner surrounded by family and friends.
Saleemah and Martin chose to tie the knot in Los Cabos for its breathtaking beauty, relaxed atmosphere, and awe-inspiring vistas. With this in mind, and knowing their priorities were a glamorous theme, an extraordinary day with loved ones, and flawless organization, we set out to design the best day of their lives!
To bring this destination wedding in Los Cabos to life, we let the couple themselves inspire us. Saleemah envisioned a Hollywood Glam & Romantic wedding, adorned with white flowers and golden accents. Both of them wanted a fun wedding, one that would shine with elegance, as well as a selection of great music to enjoy with their family and friends.
We ensured that the look remained clean throughout. The wedding decor was kept timeless, with carefully selected elements like centerpieces, candles, crystals, and more to achieve a romantic ambiance. The neutral color scheme with golden accents perfectly fulfilled Saleemah and Martin’s dream of a luxurious, glamorous wedding, in Los Cabos.
Memorable Moments and Happenings at this glamorous wedding
Every destination wedding is known for its atmosphere, but it’s also about those unique activities and experiences that make it truly special. We started with the Getting Ready Session, where Saleemah was surrounded by her mother, family members, and friends. We adored how close-knit the family was, creating a warm, protective, and emotional environment. The photos speak for themselves.
For them, a delicious lunch accompanied by mimosas set the glamorous vibe for this destination wedding. The highlight was the toast, a moment captured by Frank Tesisteco, the photographer, to immortalize these memories.
The bride’s wedding dress was one of the major highlights of this destination wedding in Los Cabos. When the time came for Saleemah to put it on, it became a grand event. We were awestruck by its construction, the incredible mermaid cut, and the sparkling embellishments that embodied the glamorous spirit of the day.
Of course, we couldn’t miss the opportunity for an exclusive photoshoot just for her –an irresistible glam dress session!
The First Look with the groom took place directly at the ceremony. The bride was escorted by her brother and mother down the aisle. As for Martin, both of his parents had passed away, so he walked alone. This moment was profoundly special, creating a nostalgic yet fun-filled ceremony. When it concluded, the newlyweds exited to Natalie Cole’s “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love”).
As a special touch to honor their parents, during the ceremony, they reserved their seats, including their photos. An “Honoring Table” with pictures, mementos, and candles was set up during the reception to make them feel even more present on this special day.
The evening began with the introduction of the newlyweds to the guests, followed by heartfelt speeches from the best man and maid of honor, leading to a delicious three-course dinner.
Before the party kicked off, the traditional cake cutting took place –a vanilla cake with buttercream icing, witnessed by all. Then came the First Dance, set to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” setting the perfect tone for the festivities, which concluded with a charming Cold fireworks display. During the party, the bouquet toss with Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” and choreographed dances got everyone on their feet.
One of our favorite parts was the Glam Booth, where guests could enjoy taking fun photos and get them printed as keepsakes.
