Marlana and Dean’s boho Acre Baja wedding had everything we love about tropical destination weddings: killer style, neutral tones, and all the good vibes! This couple brought an extra punch to the day with their wedding attire. We’re obsessed with Marlana’s choice to add rhinestone bobby pins to her bridal hairstyle, and her groom looked perfect in his tan linen suit that’s oh-so-perfect for any tropical climate. Just want until you see the lovely decor Cabo Wedding Services put together for this reception, and so much more! We love how photographer Madeline Shea Photography captured their day in a stylish, yet timeless way. So, get your “Pin” button ready — because these photos will leave you swooning!

I wanted a very classic look for ceremony. I had a semi lace mermaid dress with a gorgeous train by Enzoani. I did 4 large rhinestone bobby-pins as an “ear cuff” kinda look on my left side for a little jazz! Then for reception I wore a silk slip dress with a high slit and fringe on the bottom for the dance party! It was Willowby by Watters- Keegan gown. It was basically backless and stunning and went with the vibe of our venue and the night! My husband wore a sand linen suit custom by Suave Bespoke in Australia. Literally the most gorgeous material and cut…he looked unreal! And our wedding party was able to pick whatever they felt! Everyone brought their own style to the big day and it was perfect!
Wedding planning can be a lot to deal with… we were in the planning stage for almost a year and a half. That being said, I do not recommend giving yourself that much time!! It weighs on you and never leaves your mind so I would limit the planning process to 6-9 months at most! Do it and enjoy the process but also don’t let it consume you!
Working with Madeline Shea was A DREAM. She was the sweetest person and felt like family out the gate. She just got us. So glad we had her!
I absolutely love neutrals, trees, and wildlife. This venue could not have been better. Tree houses in what felt like the jungle. The most vibrant greenery and gorgeous peacocks rooming free. Natural woods and metals with cement and gorgeous tiles. The style was so me already that it wasn’t hard to play up what the venue already possessed. Candle light and pampas grass was all we really needed to add! My dreams came true!
I have to shout out our wedding planner, Jessica Wolff, at Cabo Wedding Services. She was literally everything to us and already knew all the vendors so, just listened to what I wanted and made it ALL happen. All of the vendors were a amazing- let it bloom, warehouse rentals, and let it be events.
The food at our venue was unreal! We had fried green tomatoes, cheddar biscuits, and farm salad as our first course. Second was, braised beef, snapper, and cauliflower 3 ways. Followed up by an abundance of churros! And with our crew we knew we’d need some delightful late night bites such as Mac n cheese balls and pork belly steamed buns to close it out!
