We love creating fantasy worlds that can be translated into reality. Destination weddings have become a true expression of magic and uniqueness, and there are more and more spaces where perfect love stories can be celebrated. This Wedding Styled Shoot in Todos Santos is our best dose of inspiration, the sum of all the reasons why we love weddings, luxury, and fairytale designs.
Get to know this romantic paradise and create the best I DO that you have ever imagined!
What is a Wedding Styled Shoot?
According to Luxe Filmography, a Wedding Styled Shoot is a staged wedding that follows a designated theme and uses models as the wedding couple. Various wedding vendors collaborate and lend their talents to achieve the theme. This theme can be a color scheme, a consistent visual component, a certain time era, or a clothing style.
The theme can either follow a more traditional wedding look or go completely off the beaten path. In the latter case, you might see themes like Halloween/goth, space, or manga/cosplay.
Planning and design process
Our inspiration was pure romanticism, fairy tales, and that feeling that defines us as a brand. Dreamy Weddings are our reason for being, and even more so when we’re able to find the perfect ambiance in a setting like Todos Santos, especially in Santa Terra, a wonderful space with corners that seem taken from a fantastic story.
The Momentos team, Fátima, Ivet, and I (Saray) got together to start brainstorming. We started a conversation about what we wanted to achieve with this wedding design and this style shoot in Todos Santos. We were excited to have complete freedom to experiment with the style and aesthetic of this magical story.
Pinterest became one of our best friends. We took care of gathering the photographs that we liked the most and those that inspired us a lot! We integrated a beautiful color scheme, textures, details, perfect ornaments for the setting, and everything necessary for that romantic paradise to become the materialization of femininity, romanticism, and that touch of magic that all our productions have.

The theme was inspired by eternal magic. We know that each destination wedding must have a unique seal, an essence that distinguishes it from all the others, and that was exactly what we wanted to achieve with this style shoot in Todos Santos. The color palette helped us know which flowers to select for the floral design, we knew we wanted a fairy tale environment and we achieved that!
The pagoda was one of the places that won our hearts and that’s why we wanted it to be an important part of the design, without overshadowing the other details. Our goal was for everything to have a personality, a reason to inspire, and a style that looked organic, homogeneous, and very romantic.
Terra Santa: The venue for this beautiful Wedding Styled Shoot
We took advantage of an invitation that came to us from Santa Terra Todos Santos to do this style shoot. From the beginning, we adored the personality of the place. We love finding treasures like this in the middle of a destination as unique as Todos Santos. The choice was very simple since all the corners, spaces, and surroundings of this wonderful venue helped us create a visual story with more character and in which all the details stood out.
The essence of Santa Terra is vibrant and eclectic, so it was the perfect choice to create this wedding styled shoot in Todos Santos. The bohemian atmosphere, along with the traditional aesthetic of Mexican celebrations, made us completely fall in love with it. In addition, this is a very versatile site to create extraordinary destination weddings, regardless of whether they are intimate or large productions of up to 200 guests. It’s a treasure!
Their spaces are great and very inspiring. Santa Terra is surrounded by interesting details, such as boats that give it a vintage look, the pagoda, and the vineyard, a space that has an ultra-romantic personality when sunset arrives. It is a place that encourages you to unleash your imagination and creativity, in addition to offering privacy, as well as a lot of openness at the same time. All in one!
Without a doubt, Todos Santos has become a magical place with a privileged climate. It still maintains the wonder of an ancient town, but without sacrificing any comfort. It is a place that is far from the hustle and bustle of the city and invites you to peace and tranquility, with incredible locations and large spaces to host a wedding with many guests.

Fashion and Beauty
To make everything go even better in this style shoot, we needed the perfect wedding dress. The creation was in charge of Dolores Martín, with whom we had an interview and showed her our inspiration. Based on what we were looking for, she designed and made the dress.
Dolores Martín told us that the inspiration for Santa Terra’s designs was based on new trends for destination weddings in the countryside, gardens, and vineyards, highlighting details, textures, movement, and volume.
The beauty look was done by Jeisa Gonzales who used the inspiration from the dress to come up with perfect makeup and hair.
2024 wedding trends
Romanticism is something that will never go out of style at weddings. As for the color palette, we think that the lavender color will be something that we’ll see a lot in the 2024 season, leaving behind the most intense colors such as hot pink or magenta.
