Laura and Erik’s wedding was a wonderful celebration where we merged different things in a unique and very personal way. The green lawn, striking desert, blue ocean views, and later on, a starry sky, provided a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and wedding reception, where we toasted to love and laughter forever.
We started planning Laura and Erik’s wedding in 2017. The set date was June 2018, and after we have defined the Cabo wedding venue – the beautiful Cabo del Sol – and several other details, there came an unexpected surprise – Laura and Erik called that they are postponing the wedding! They called me to share with me the happiest news: the reason they were postponing a wedding was more than exciting – they were expecting a baby boy! Little Luca’s birth date was just around their planned wedding day, so Laura & Erik decided to celebrate their love one year later, in 2019, together with their baby son Luca!
The process of planning Laura and Erik’s beach wedding was gratifying, and I enjoyed every moment of it. With Laura’s Mexican heritage and Erik’s American traditions, we decided to celebrate a little of both. Laura chose her wedding colors in green, blush, with accents of gold and washed white, and it looked so beautiful and romantic. For the beach wedding ceremony, we prepared personalized flip-flops, so each guest could save their shoes and walk on the beach effortlessly! Another detail that I loved was cute sunbrellas, which ladies adored!
A pleasant surprise for the wedding guests was the mariachi band, which greeted Laura & Erik after their wedding ceremony concluded. Laura, Erik, and Luca danced to the rhythms of traditional romantic songs, which was a sight I will remember forever!
For the reception, we set up a wooden dance floor on the lawn and installed the garlands of lights all around it, which made such a magical setup after the sunset. For the food, Laura & Erik opted for food stations with their favorite Mexican dishes, and as usual, the food provided by the Cabo del Sol team was delicious!
And after Laura and Erik cut the cake, they cut the 1yr birthday cake for Luca’s birthday as well. After they’ve cut and tasted all the cakes, and said the toasts, the party started and all the guests enjoyed dancing under the stars to the beats of DJ Mijares long into the night.
All in all, Laura & Erik’s was a dream come true for their Los Cabos destination wedding. They were a wonderful couple to work with, and I am grateful that they chose me to be part of their wedding story!
With love always,
Fatima, Cabo San Lucas Wedding Planner

Perfect planning makes for perfect day!
Fatima is quite simply one of the best professionals I have ever met. Our wedding required a bit more coordination than usual because we became pregnant shortly after making our initial choices and had to push everything back one year. Thankfully, Fatima was successful in negotiating this for us in manner that prevented us from incurring any penalties or losing any booking up to that point. After we had our healthy baby boy, we resumed the planning and she skillfully picked up right where left off. When we visited Cabo two months prior to wedding so that we could finalize everything, we spent two solid days with Fatima seeing our inspirations come to fruition. My only regret is that we aren’t able to go through the tour and tasting portion of the planning again…it was so much fun! When the day finally came, we had nothing to worry about. Fatima and her crew pulled everything off flawlessly and we were able to enjoy every aspect of the ceremony without any concern for the large or small details. The end result was more amazing than any concepts we had drawn up to that point. Every guest in attendance remarked about how amazing the setting, decor, food and music were. Literally nothing could have made this more perfect and for that my wife and I would be forever grateful. Fatima is a true professional, a wonderful person and someone I would recommend a million times over for any event you might be having in beautiful Cabo!
