2008 Recap: Part 2

In Part 1, published in January, I showcased 8 of my beautiful 2008 weddings...
Now I'd like to share with you a few more that I truly loved! And please check back periodically on my blog as I continue to share the unique and special 2009 weddings I am producing as well.

But...back to 2008...

BRIDE & GROOM: Rachel & Bryan
WEDDING DATE: June 21, 2008
LOCATION: Sheraton Hacienda del Mar - Palapa Fiesta

“Thanks, Katie!! I appreciate all the work you have done for the wedding, the actual wedding day, and the check up and congrats after the wedding. I couldn't have asked for a more organized and better wedding planner. You are so nice to work with and I hope to see continued success in your career.”

BRIDE & GROOM: Mindy & Jeff
WEDDING LOCATION: Sheraton Hacienda del Mar- Ceremony at DeCortez Beach, Reception on DeCortez Terrace
GUEST COUNT: Sat, July 19, 2008
“Thank you so much for all that you did in preparation of our wedding last weekend. Everything was beyond my expectations and beyond my wildest dreams! We had a blast and so did all of our guests and that was what was most important to me. I have you to thank for everything!!!”

BRIDE & GROOM: Tara & Chris
WEDDING DATE: Nov. 10, 2009
LOCATION: Casa del Mar - Beach ceremony, reception at the Casa del Mar Beach Club
ADDITIONAL EVENTS: Rehearsal Dinner at Pancho's Restaurant
"Thank you so much for everything, we can't imagine changing a thing. The wedding was absolutely wonderful and we had the best time. We have watched the video 3 times already! Our time in Cabo was amazing and we will treasure the memories forever. Thank you so much for everything you did for us, everyone has raved about both parties, Welcome Dinner and the Wedding. We are very proud to have used you as our coordinator and would highly recommend you to anyone else planning a wedding in Los Cabos. Muchas Gracias!!"

BRIDE & GROOM: Bianca & Eric
WEDDING DATE: June 22, 2008
LOCATION: Dreams Resort
ADDITIONAL EVENTS: Rehearsal dinner at Pancho's Restaurant
Thank you so much for all that you did to make our day PERFECT!! …We were truly impressed with you . The rehearsal dinner at Panchos was wonderful too…All of the vendors you recommended were wonderful and far better than I ever expected I would get in Cabo. Initially I thought that by having the wedding in Mexico I might have to lower some of the expectations that I had, however that was not the case at all! The flowers were beautiful, Velinda did my hair and make-up perfect, the cigar roller was a HUGE hit, I could go on and on… Please feel free to pass along my name as a reference if you should need to and if anyone I know is getting married in Cabo I will definitely recommend you and WIP!!”

Sheraton Sweeties: Nicole & Scott

"Thanks so much!
I cannot even begin to tell you how much we enjoyed Saturday - it was PERFECT! Thank you again for your amazing-ness!!!"

-Nicole (bride)

BRIDE & GROOM: Nicole & Scott
WEDDING DATE: January 3, 2009
LOCATION: Beach Ceremony at the Sheraton's Tortuga Beach & Reception at the Sheraton's Palapa Fiesta
GUEST COUNT: 35 guests

Nicole & Scott have been sweethearts since high school and their love for each other really showed in their special ceremony and fun reception. Nicole wanted to keep everything beachy & bright, and her choice of navy & yellow really showed that. The sunflowers were a hit! And they are a hardy & affordable flower, even in Cabo. The couple and most of the guests were from Texas, and Texans are truly a friendly and happy group of people.

Sheraton's Bonfire: Nicole & Scott continued their party after dinner by inviting all of their guests back down to the Tortuga Beach for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have a post-wedding bonfire. With an IPOD playing some great party music as the guests lounged on the sand and in beach lounge chairs, the flames kept everyone warm and happy. The Sheraton does a great job of setting this up "on the sly" so that your guests are truly surprised when you invite them down to the beach to continue celebrating.

Sparklers: Imagine standing on the beach, as your guests form a "tunnel of sparklers." That's what Nicole & Scott did, and then they exited through this tunnel and left for their honeymoon stay at Las Ventanas. These wedding sparklers are not the old sparklers you remember as a kid on the 4th of July. These are custom built sparklers (made by our fireworks guys) that are extra-long and last for about 5 minutes, providing a mini-fireworks display. When you're done with them, you put them out in the sand. A great inexpensive way to add MEMORIES to your wedding day.
