I love that the experience of designing and planning a Cabo destination wedding is different and the inspiration of each couple transforms the result completely. Meeting Jackie and Keaton was fascinating and their minimalist wedding with tropical touches was the best way to take advantage of the magic and luxury of Los Cabos on a day that I will remember forever. You will love the details of this I DO.
The Love Story
“We went to the same university (Cal Poly SLO) and lived in the same dormitories on the same floor. Despite the coincidence, we did not meet each other until 3 years later in Cabo on spring break! We started to grow an attachment towards each other from the beginning but did not start dating until 1 year after we met”, Keaton told us during one of our meetings.
And he added: “We have been together ever since (6 years). After graduating Jackie was living in San Francisco, CA and I was living in San Luis Obispo, CA (a 4-hour drive from each other). We did this distance relationship for 4 years before Jackie moved to San Luis Obispo so we could be together. We’ve been living together for 2 years now and are finally engaged!”
Jackie and Keaton recently went back to Cabo for a little pandemic reprieve vacation and that’s where it all began. Keaton proposed to Jackie on a boat in front of the arches! Now they live in Encinitas, California, to start the next chapter of their lives together!
Jackie and Keaton chose Los Cabos because that’s where they met 7 years ago, so it became a big part of their love story.
The planning process and inspiration for this minimalist wedding
Working with Jackie and Keaton was extraordinary. The two hoped to find the best vendors that fit their style and budget, as well as help them shape all the details and make coordination go smoothly. What they wanted most was for their wedding day to be stress-free.
The priorities were very clear: “that our guests have fun, great music/dancing, awesome food/drinks, photography, happy/positive vibes”.
We focused on the atmosphere being minimalist, bohemian, and with tropical touches, integrating a minimum of leaves and foliage to highlight the uniqueness of its style. They both knew exactly what they wanted for their wedding day, so the entire design process involved a lot of communication and we managed to bring all their expectations to reality.
The two were always very present in our monthly calls. We planned the wedding over a period of one year, they came to Los Cabos for their site inspections, and they always distinguished themselves by being very participative in each of the phases. How you communicate with your wedding planner is essential to achieve your dream wedding.
Jackie and Keaton had already seen a few Momentos weddings at Acre Resort, so that location was chosen to bring their wedding aesthetic to life. The atmosphere was one of the main protagonists of their wedding day, so we chose a decorative design that reflected her relaxed and outgoing personality. At all times we managed to make the essence casual, uncomplicated, and with incredible energy.
There were many experiences that defined the vibe of this minimalist wedding with tropical touches. We loved doing the site visit and spending so much time with them, although of course, we must highlight the moment of the First Look, one of the most emotional moments of this wedding. The photo shoot and the look of both were great focuses of attention in their I DO!
Among the happenings, we also must highlight the welcome cocktail in San José’s Art District, in the Mi Casa restaurant, a very special place to start with the dynamics of a minimalist wedding that we can never forget.
Jackie and Keaton were always excited and very funny about everything that happened at their wedding, and it was the best experience to enjoy their love and the good vibes of all the guests and, of course, the decorative inspiration that was reflected in some amazing photos.
Without a doubt, planning a destination wedding in Los Cabos will always give a fascinating and personalized result with the character of each couple that puts their essence into the development of this love story.
