"Thank you so much for all that you did for Jess and me. We had such an amazing time and could not have wished for a better wedding. Thank you!! We are really looking forward to getting the photos and video." -Morley, the groom
BRIDE & GROOM: Jessica & Morley WEDDING DATE: March 13, 2009 LOCATION: Ceremony & dinner at Sunset Da Mona Lisa, Reception/Dancing upstairs at the DG Lounge, Cabo San Lucas GUEST COUNT: 24




Just because your guest count may be small, it does not mean you need to sacrifice the dreams you have always had for a fabulous, elegant and romantic wedding. Jessica & Morley had both the intimate ceremony overlooking the famous Arch that they had always dreamed of...and a party location where all of their guests could enjoy themselves all night, dancing and drinking special signature drinks created just for them by the couple in the urban, funky, ultra-hip DG Lounge. This was a very unique and effective way to utilize this location for this size of a we…

BRIDE & GROOM: Jill & Adam
WEDDING DATE: February 27, 2009
LOCATION: Sunset Da Mona Lisa restaurant, Cabo San Lucas
GUEST COUNT: 54



I first met Jill & Adam a year ago when they came to Cabo to do a site tour. They were unsure of where to have their wedding, and we viewed 5 or 6 potential locations. It was a tough decision but something about Sunset Da Mona Lisa spoke to them and they knew that, with a buy-out there, they could have the gorgeous sunset ceremony they were dreaming of AND a rocking party afterwards. They wanted their guests to have fun! And that is exactly what happened the last week-end in February 2009 as they celebrated their beautiful wedding in Cabo. Take a look at their photos and see why they had THIS to say about their wedding day:
"Katie, We cannot thank you enough for everything that you did to make our wedding day absolutely perfect! We couldn't have asked for anything more and it was truly the best day of our lives! Everyone was raving about h…

Sunset Da Mona Lisa in Cabo- The best view of the arch

One of the things I love about being a wedding coordinator is helping confused couples find the PERFECT location for their PERFECT wedding. Every couple is different and every couple has a different budget, but we all know when we have fallen in love with a location! It feels like, "Wow, this is THE place."

For the next month or so, I am going to highlight some breathtaking wedding locations where I have done quite a few fabulous weddings. These are locations where I know your wedding will be a huge success, where your guests will literally be in awe when they enter for your special night. I truly only recommend those locations where my past experience proves that your event will be flawless, stress-free...and dazzling!



SUNSET DA MONA LISA RESTAURANT:

(This is the real sunset - this is not edited!) TERRACES: These terraces (there are 2, one small/medium, one larger) are the most gorgeous location for a wedding ceremony, especially for the bride who does not want her feet (liter…

Wedding showcased - The Knot magazine

I have had weddings featured on the Knot website, on Oxygen channel's Platinum Weddings and in several other bridal magazines, but this is a first for me...to have a wedding featured in the Destination Wedding portion of Knot magazine. I'm thrilled and a huge thanks to photographer, Leigh Miller, who submitted it. She also was sweet enough to send me a copy of the article so I could share it on my blog. This was truly a LOVELY wedding, at Casa del Mar in Cabo San Lucas. Magazine available now at your local bookstore!

An Enchanted El Dorado wedding - Photos

I raved about this wedding in an earlier blog, just after I returned from coordinating Heather & Alan's wedding. Now, I have received the photos, and I am so excited to share them! (It takes about 3 weeks to receive the photos from the photographer, Manuel Burgoin, and they look incredible.)
Meet Heather, the bride...she is truly model material and she had a special glow about her that day.And here is Alan, her true love:

Together, they are a magical match made in heaven. (I know, cliche, but true!)
Heather did her pre-ceremony photography at her father's home in Cabo
The bridesmaids & bride processed down a very long rock staircase that was spectacular, lending itself to these gorgeous pictures.




Heather & Alan's ceremony was officiated by Heather's step-dad, which is a great way to have a very intimate, funny & special ceremony. Who else knows you both better, and can truly share what your love is about, than someone in your family?



The reception was held a…
