Erin and Matt: A fun and colorful rustic wedding in San José del Cabo

Written by Fatima Falcon Garcia

Ever since I met Erin and Matt I loved their personality. Erin was always independent, energetic, and very curious, while Matt won us over with her spontaneity and patience. What we knew is that this wedding had to be the same as the couple: an occasion to celebrate love and good vibes, in a very fun and colorful rustic wedding. San Jose del Cabo was the destination that received us to bring this love story to life and these are the highlights.

We loved Erin and Matt’s love story. As Erin told us: he faked a flat tire on our way back from grabbing a coffee with my parents. The place where he faked the flat tire was right next to a beautiful waterfront. When we walked over to the lake, he proposed!

With such a description, the essence of this rustic wedding in San José del Cabo had to be just as special. The couple told us that their priorities were a good alcohol supply (with lots of tequila shots, of course), great music, and the best experience for their guests. With these ideas in mind, we set out to create the best days so that everyone could experience this incredible wedding in paradise.

Tamarindos: the perfect venue for a rustic wedding

We conceived the wedding as an opportunity to show the best of color. Together with the couple we chose Tamarindos, a very original venue in San José del Cabo, with a low-style fort, a rustic style with many green areas, and farm-to-table food. Erin loves to cook, she is an artist and very creative, which is why Tamarindos turned out to be the best option for the essence of both to stand out in every detail (even Matt’s Spanish practice and his desire to master it). Super cute!

For the design we concentrated on bright colors, we wanted the atmosphere to become an alternative space for all the guests to have fun and enjoy an incomparable celebration. The color scheme featured mainly pink and orange, although we also included coral and salmon to create the best combo.

The day before the wedding they had a rehearsal dinner at Los Tres Gallos. We did a buyout and then they went to the after party at Daltons. People had a great time and enjoyed delicious food.

One of the things we liked the most about Erin and Matt and their ultra-fun wedding is that they both took great care of every detail and the experience they wanted their guests to have. Both were very detailed, and they excelled in participating a lot in the planning, both were always very active and excited during the 15 months that we worked together.

We love that couples think about creating a total experience for each moment of the wedding and the previous happenings. Everything counts when it comes to pampering the couple on their big day and those who accompany them on such a special date.

For the wedding day, Erin and Matt rented 2 houses in Palmilla for their stay and getting ready and that gave them the comfort of enjoying their getting ready. We hired a chef service, and everything was delicious.

During the reception, food was extremely important. For the first course, everyone enjoyed a chile relleno with veggies, grilled shrimp skewer with cilantro pesto, and Los Tamarindos’ salad (butter lettuce, arugula, mizuna, tat-soi, with tamarind vinaigrette). The tribute to Mexican cuisine was also present in a roasted pork shank braised in Oaxacan green mole and in a duo of vegetarian tamales wrapped in “hoja santa”.

Erin and Matt had two signature drinks for their wedding:

Signature Cocktail 1 “Passion Fruit Margarita: Tequila 7 leagues, Passion fruit and Controy.

Signature Cocktail 2 “Pineapple serrano mezcalita: Mezcal La Venia Espadín, Pineapple, Chile Serrano and Controy”.

The party was spectacular. Alex Dj did a very cool setup with light effects and an illuminated track, which made the dance floor always full.

An incredibly fun rustic wedding, with inspiring details and a vibe that we will never forget.

Congratulations, Erin and Matt! We loved every second of your I DO!
