Jamie & Jason’s Destination Wedding
Saturday the 23rd of February
Hola! We have just returned from the Wedding of Jamie and Jason at Dreams Resort in gorgeous Los Cabos, Mexico. Jamie and Jason’s friends and families enjoyed a weekend full of celebrations including a birthday party for our lovely bride, Jamie.
On Saturday, Jamie and Jason welcomed their guests with dinner at Oceana’s restaurant followed by a fun filled night out at the infamous Cabo Wabo Cantina, owned by Sammy Hagar. There was a lot of tequila and dancing – everyone had a great time!
The wedding, held on Sunday evening on the beach overlooking the ocean, was one of the most beautiful ceremonies that we have had the pleasure of coordinating. Although we had been experiencing very strong winds over the weekend, somehow as Jamie emerged to walk down the aisle, the wind subsided and it was a perfect evening. We even welcomed some whales as special guests to the ceremony ~ the guests were all truly impressed that we were able to pull that one off J
The ceremony was followed by cocktail hour, complete with Mariachi band and a reception held next to the infinity pool. It truly was beautiful and what a party! The staff said that they have never seen so many guests enjoying the party.
Before leaving for their honeymoon in Bali, Jamie and Jason spent the morning in their wedding attire, working with Norman Gilbert Photography, to take some amazing pictures in the ocean and the pool – we cannot wait to see those shots! Here is a quick sample and we will be sure to post others once they are available.
Destination weddings are a great way to extend your celebration and include your family and friends. With any wedding there are many details, but a destination wedding offers unique challenges ~ travel and lodging for your guests, creative location specific gift bags, extra dinners and excursions. You also need to make sure you are aware of the guidelines around bringing materials for the wedding into certain countries. Most importantly you have to consider the resort or hotel and the vendors that you plan to use to pull together the perfect day. Working with a professional team such as The Finishing Touch can help you bypass the many hurdles you will encounter, as we have been through them all before and know the easiest way around them.
We could not have asked to work with a better staff than we found at Dreams. Special thanks to Mariana, Raul and Naty for their hard work – they were always right there with anything we needed and we knew if we needed something fast they were the ones to see.
We are honored to have been a part of the families’ special moments and were truly full of joy to see how happy they all were. Thanks to all and we look forward to the next party!
