Making Their Loved Ones an Integral Part of Their Cape a Thompson Hotel Destination Wedding

We always said the day was about us, but it was also about our friends and family. We wanted them not just to be present for the wedding but to be a part of the wedding. Everyone was putting in a lot of time and effort to travel to Cabo, so we wanted to ensure they were thought about throughout the wedding weekend.

How Flowers Became the Heart of Their Cape a Thompson Hotel Destination Wedding Design

We worked closely with our wedding planner to curate our design. We knew we wanted a clean black-and-white palette with a creamy hue and a few statement pieces and moments to liven it up. The vibe mirrored the style, which was elegant but added some entertainment. We splurged on the flowers. And there is not a single bud that I would have changed. The foundation of our wedding’s “look” was the flowers and how they were incorporated throughout every space.

Designing a Wedding Experience Where Guests Glide Effortlessly from Ceremony to Reception

We had searched many venues over the years of visiting Cabo, but we were always drawn to the Cape. The rooftop view is stunning, and the backdrop for the wedding is unbeatable. The reception and dance floor setup was exactly what we wanted for an intimate but fun after-party. Their food is excellent, with a little flare, and the service is top-notch. The Cape was accommodating to us, wanting to take over the rooftop. The goal was for the guests to be kept from being shuffled around but to seamlessly move from one area to the next, from the ceremony to cocktail hour, then reception.

Combined Seating Charts and Wedding Favors with a Personalized Mezcal Touch

We incorporated the seating chart with the wedding favors. We came to enjoy Mezcal from our trips to Cabo and thought it would be a personal touch to include it. The seating chart was adorned with personalized Mezcaleros that our guests could take a shot of to sample and take home with them as souvenirs.

How The After-Party Became the Highlight of Their Cape a Thompson Hotel Destination Wedding

Our most memorable moment was the entire after-party. The tone was set from the beginning with fireworks and ended with a neon saxophone player. We will always appreciate seeing our friends and family enjoying themselves on the dance floor, dancing, singing, and being together at that moment.

Why Having a Trusted Wedding Planner in Cabo Made Their Destination Wedding Experience Truly Special

We trusted our planner to put our vision into place, and there is so much behind the scenes that you cannot keep track of from a distance or on the wedding day.
