Erin & Shawn’s Romantic Wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty!
“If you’re in need for a little Monday pick-me-up, look no further than Erin and Shawn’s bohemian chic destination wedding in Cabo. With pretty white lace details, gorgeous flowers accented with lush greenery, gold accents throughout and rustic wood elements, this day was meant to be pinned”.
From The Bride
The inspiration for our destination wedding Cabo was “Bohemian Chic” mixed with rustic elements. The outcome of that was pretty white lace details, flowers mixed with greens, gold accents, and rustic wood pieces (menu, table numbers, and king tables/chairs). I wanted the decor to be pretty yet comfortable at the same time. It was also very important for us to incorporate both cultures (Indian and American) by including Indian traditions in the Ceremony and the Reception. For example, the presentation of the Manthrakodi (blessed Sari given to me by Shawn’s parents during the wedding) and the thali which are threads from the sari tied around my neck symbolizing that we are now formally a couple.
How We Met
Shawn and I met in Chicago a little over 6 years ago…he worked at an Advertising agency and I worked at a Magazine/Publication. My boss and I took Shawn and his team out for dinner and drinks. I gravitated towards his warm smile and kind demeanor…we started dating a couple months later and the rest is history 🙂
Our Destination Wedding Cabo
Shawn proposed to me in Cabo on Cinco de Mayo in 2014 which is why we wanted to get married there…it is a very special place for us and we couldn’t wait to share it with our family and friends. Our 6 year anniversary was the night before our wedding and I went to school in San Diego and the second I saw The Cabo Surf hotel I knew that was the venue…felt like a little bit of home mixed with everything that makes Cabo special.
From Amy Abbott Events
Erin wanted a low key boho flow destination wedding Cabo. The bride and groom hail from Chicago and were planning a wedding while changing jobs, moving to the suburbs and it was all quite a juggle. All of this was one of the reasons they made a decision to have a destination wedding. Erin presented us with a well organized Pinterest board and we took over from there.
They loved the hip and simple sophistication of the Cabo Surf Hotel and chose that as the place for their reception and for their guests to stay. The whole feel of the weekend with everyone at one space made is relaxed and almost like staying at one giant villa.
Erin and Shawn were married in the Mission San Jose Church and came back to the hotel for the cocktail and reception. The Flowers by Pina Hernandez were simply breathtaking and Erin and Shawn chose hand painted rustic wood, re-purposed from the beach as their bohemian inspired place cards. The flow of the evening was magical and a good time was had by all.
