While this job is not always easy, it DOES come with a lot of perks! Traveling to fabulous destinations to celebrate love is a big work perk for which we are so grateful! We are lucky to take on a few destination weddings each year, so when Jenni & Cody contacted us to help tell their love story and create a three day event for 100 of their closest friends and family at the brand new JW Marriott Los Cabos, we said "Si!", and packed our bags to head to magical Mexico. Working with Jenni & Cody through the entire process was an absolute blast. These two are ridiculously hilarious, super lively & fun, and SO loved by the most warm and genuine friends and family they share together. This wedding was unlike any other: the bridal party danced down the aisle, the groom surprised the bride with their favorite show tune, and all of the guests joined in song after I DO. We were all just singing and dancing and basking in their love and joy! Being a part of this destination celebration was a career highlight, and one we'll never forget!
With a tropical setting, and a beach-front ceremony, we knew we wanted to play with color in attire for their LARGE bridal party to make a big impact. With the ladies in long dresses in shades of pink, coral, and red, and the guys in blues with red accents, We kept the floral somewhat simple to let the setting really shine.
There were lots of lovely details for the day, but one of my favorites was our escort card display. After passing through the doors separating the ceremony from reception on the beach, guests were welcomed into cocktail hour with a shot of tequila with their name on it, literally! Our talented friends at Sweet Zion Paperie made these special escort flags directing guests to their tables which were named for destinations the couple had traveled together during their courtship. This really set the tone for the MOST fun reception!
Planning a wedding out of the country, and setting up in the Mexican sun has it's challenges, but all said and done, this wedding was an absolute dream! Guests enjoyed the most wonderful experience with a delicious station style dinner, open bar, and the best dance party that lasted late into the evening. We felt honored to travel this journey with Jenni & Cody all the way to Cabo and can't wait to go back! J&C, thank you, thank you, for allowing us to share in your joy, we love you guys and your wedding weekend- this was one for the books!
