When I first met Rebecca + Greg, to say I was excited for their destination wedding was an understatement. The couple had a grand vision for an intimate wedding outside of Texas. After I showed them a few numbers from a previous destination wedding with a similar guest count in Bali, the couple were game to look there as well! We ended up delving into three main locations for this wedding: Cabo, Greece and Bali, and narrowing down options from there.
Ultimately, The Cape Hotel in Cabo won out and their intimate wedding of 36 was held there. Did I mention that this couple had a grand vision? We had been planning this for over a year and it was so, immensely gratifying to see this all come to life! We hit the ground running for a packed three days of wedding day festivities, broken down below:
This boutique hotel was wonderful in having various locations the couple could host all these events at, without one ever being in the same space. It was a great way for guests to be acquainted with the property and fully enjoy what R+G had dreamed up. And let me tell you, this duo knows how to throw an event!
I’m going to start with the actual wedding day. After their ceremony overlooking the ocean, guests headed up to the rooftop of the hotel where they were greeted by a Mariachi. A fun twist on the wedding entrance that the couple did was have their bridal party be announced in while shaking maracas, and the bride and groom coming in with even bigger maracas to start off the night in style.
During their first dance, gerbes i.e. cold sparklers were set to go off at a certain point in time for their finale before they settled down to a five-course plated meal, not including the food stations for the late night snacks. One of my favorite details of the day were these matte black charger plates that paired beautifully with the leather menus specifically created for the couple. It was topped off with place cards of gold-rimmed oyster shells as a nod to the beach.
During dinner, stilt walkers were brought in and did an acrobatic act for guests to see. The dance floor did not stay empty all night as the couple had flown in two DJs from Las Vegas to get the party started. The night then cumulated with a stunning 1.5 minute firework display as the guests were dancing below. The couple ended the night with a sparkler exit and that wedding did not end until 12:30 am. It was a lovely day and my favorite portion of the night was hearing the gasps and exclamations of the guests who were so pleasantly surprised by the beautiful firework display to celebrate the couple’s union.
Congratulations to R+G on this new chapter!
