To say we were thrilled Rebecca + Greg were planning an intimate destination wedding in Cabo was an understatement. When the couple reached out for a wedding planner, we knew we’d hit it off with their attention to detail and grand vision they had for guests.
The couple had planned for their nuptials at The Cape and y’all, we are itching for the next couple who wants to be married there too. You can learn more about their wedding and all the details it entailed here.
What most don’t do however, is use the photographer for a day-after session also known as “trash the dress” where the couple takes pictures post wedding, where they can really take their time instead of being limited to the perimeters set out for them with the wedding day. They decided to make use of the breathtaking ocean they had at their feet (literally!). The waves were right next to their boutique hotel and were so, immensely clear. By taking time out the next day for photographs, they were able to wade into the water, hence the term trash-the-dress, and take images there that you typically wouldn’t get on a wedding day. You can also opt to wear an entirely different gown so you have a variety.
You also have a lot more time to enjoy yourselves without worrying that there is a wedding to get back to! It’s pretty easy to see the ease the couple had in these images and how peaceful (and fun) this whole session turned out to be.
Below is the absolutely WONDERFUL review Greg left for us. We are so grateful to have the best clients!
“Words can’t describe how thankful we are with our choice in Sarah Kee and Keestone Events to help us create and plan our dream wedding. She went above and beyond our wildest expectations and delivered a most amazing event all weekend long!!!
From the beginning, we knew we wanted someone who was highly organized and had a vision to help us create the intimate, fantasy destination wedding we had long hoped for. We met with five wedding and event planners who all shared their stories and initial visions for our wedding. It wasn’t long after that we landed on Sarah and Keestone Events. Our initial meeting with her set the tone for what would turn out to be the greatest event of our lives.
They say organization plays a big part in wedding planning and within minutes of signing our contract, our minds were put at ease as Sarah began displaying her “KonMari” style skills. We knew that planning a destination wedding would be difficult, especially not knowing where we would end up. Sarah graciously presented many options on cities and event venues. She provided the most detailed proposals on each city of interest, hotels and resorts, vendors, and even added cities she thought would be able to capture the essence of our fantasy. In the end, the decision was made easy; we would create a true fairytale wedding at The Cape a Thompson Hotel in Cabos San Lucas Mexico. From this point forward, her skills and organization would prove to be consistent and forward thinking; we continued through the process knowing we made the best decision.
Sarah demonstrated her unique ability to execute our vision to a tee. We had so many wants and desires to make our storybook wedding come to life which created unique challenges along the way. Needless to say, Sarah continued to shine and as each decision or challenge was overcome, our minds were put at ease and we knew it would all turn out beautiful. Our wedding weekend was scheduled from Thursday to Sunday and as each event passed, all of the dreamy images and desires we imagined came to reality in spectacular fashion!!!
Sarah also proved her unique ability to gain a leadership role over our vendors. She successfully proved this throughout the process and gave the relief we needed to handle all the issues and overcome any challenges. Even after our event, Sarah mediated a tense situation with one of our vendors and navigated us to a more than expected resolution. It speaks volumes about her character that after all the money was paid and the event had passed, she provided finality to a difficult situation!!!
If you are planning or thinking of planning a major event or wedding, I would highly recommend Sarah Kee and Keestone Events. We are forever thankful to her and her staff for providing us with our dream wedding which surpassed our wildest expectations!! If you would like more details on our wonderful experience, we are available by private message to share more on how Sarah cemented a place in our lives both personally and professionally.”
