Mexico Destination Wedding {Megan + Adam}

These wedding pictures are ultra modern and super sizzling. Talented Allyson of Allyson Wiley Photography captured them.

The beautiful backdrop for this wedding was Cabo San Lucas. Megan and Adam selected this location and Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Holistic Resort & Spa as the venue because of “the amazing clean architectural details of the resort and the beauty of the natural beach backdrop. We kept things clean with white colours with navy blue, teal, and light pink flowers and accents, to complement the beauty of the location” says Megan.

We love that this couple put an upscale modern twist on the standard Mexican destination wedding. Wickedly gorgeous, don’t you think?

The bride wore a “custom-made dress from Amy Kuschel, San Francisco, CA.”

“The ceremony took place around a circular copper and stone fire-pit with the Pacific Ocean as our backdrop.”

From the Bride:

What made your wedding unique?

“We wanted a small destination wedding and we were surrounded by 70 of our closest friends and family, who all spent the week leading up to the wedding all at the same resort. [Also] the amazing string quartet was playing a mixture of classical Mexican music with some of our favorites, including a couple of ‘The Beatles’ classics.”

Did you DIY any details?

“We had custom gift bags for all guests upon arrival with traditional Mexican oil cloth beach bags, custom stitched beach towels with logo and location, sandals, hair ties for the ladies, and local snacks. [Also] calligraphy table cards and table numbers. [Plus] custom, ceramic, Dia de los Muertos cake topper from an artist in Los Angeles (uncanny resemblance).”

What was your biggest challenge?

“The biggest challenge was definitely coordinating an international wedding from San Francisco. We really had to trust the coordinator to make sure that our views and desires were clearly expressed. We were thoroughly impressed with the turnout.”

What was your favorite moment?

“The ‘First Look’ – Our photographer Allyson orchestrated the ‘first look’, which allowed us to have a very special private moment with each other before the ceremony.  For a few minutes it was just us and Allyson beautifully captured that moment, which we will have forever. [Also] the processional with string quartet playing an instrumental cover of Damien Rice’s song ‘Cannonball’ – it was amazing! Per our request, the band agreed to learn the song for our ceremony and it added the perfect personal touch to the ceremony.”

What’s your advice?

“Start planning early and do not skimp on the important things: photography, food, drinks, and of course the music.”

Congratulations Megan and Adam and thank you for sharing your sensational wedding pictures with One Stylish Bride.
