This Cabo wedding at Acre Baja is for the foodies and the fashionistas! Alexandra and Steven took wedding day style to a whole new level with the bride donning not one but two custom capes alongside her Pronovias gown and Gucci shoes and the groom rocking a classic black tux accessorized with a non-traditional Gucci tie and Stetson hat. Their goal was to create a chic, modern, and — most importantly — fun destination celebration, and we think they did just that! With tiny bottles of Mezcal and maracas for each guest, a carefully curated selection of the best foods, and the expert design eye of Bliss Events by Bonnie Chase, they created a one-of-a-kind celebration we’re sure none of their guests will forget! There were so many unbelievably stylish moments, as well as some outrageously fun party moments, and photographer Stefanie Vinsel captured them all brilliantly and harmoniously!
Alexandra and Steven
Acre Baja, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
My dress was by Pronovias and my shoes were by Gucci. Because I work in the fashion industry, I had to do something to personalize my look. So, I made two separate capes that hooked onto my dress. The ceremony cape was made of silk and extended 5 feet past my dress, and the reception cape was hand-beaded and weighed over 7 pounds!
For us, it was important to be able to spend as much time with our friends and family as we could. We wanted to love, laugh, dance, eat, drink with all of them for more than just our big day. We also wanted them to really get time to know each other better as well. That said, if anyone else feels the same way, a piece of advice would be to have a destination wedding. It almost forces that situation to create itself.
The food and drink were provided by Acre and it was unreal (and that comes from two foodies)! Upon entering the venue, guests were greeted with a choice of welcome cocktails; a tamarind old fashioned and a mezcal cocktail with lime, pineapple, and hibiscus.
After the ceremony, canapes were served by the pool, including quesadillas with squash blossoms and salsa verde, oysters with Michelada, red wine mignonette and soy peppercorn and a chorizo flatbread with cucumber yogurt and pumpkin seed pesto. For dinner, guests were served a family-style menu. We also had a custom lemon rosemary cake with cream cheese frosting and a boysenberry drizzle.
The most memorable part of our wedding, for both of us, was sitting at our sweetheart table and taking it all in. That all our friends and family were there to celebrate the love we share. It was pretty incredible to see so many people there that supported us on our journey.
