Why did you choose the venue/location you did?
Our recent wedding ceremony and reception at the One&Only Palmilla Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico was truly magical. From the horse-drawn carriage ride, to the beautiful chapel with its white-washed stone façade and of course, the intimate outdoor reception under the swaying palms, it was all a dream come true.
The setting itself could not have been more stunning. Having been to Mexico before, we both knew the resort presented itself as the ideal place for just what we wanted: an intimate ceremony in a church, a private outdoor reception for our family and enough room to dance to the sounds of a traditional band.
Why did you choose the invitations you did?
We knew we wanted invitations that were custom and unique for our wedding. The invitation is what truly sets the tone for the entire event, and we wanted something that all of our guests would want to save and cherish. Given that lace was the theme of our wedding it was easy for us to use that as a starting point! We also adored all of your hand-painted flowers, so mixture of both aspects was the perfect combination. The soft sprinkling of glitter on each and every one, added just the right amount of sparkle!
Were personal touches important to your wedding day?
The entire day truly was picture perfect. From the sounds of the harpist, to seeing the glow of the lights strung across the terrace where we dined, up until the wish lantern send off on the edge of the Sea of Cortez, we both felt lucky to have shared such special experiences with those who meant the most to us.
