Beach Destination Wedding: Chelsea & TylerMay 30, 2012 | Categories Real Weddings + Wedding Stationery
We are absolutely in love with Chelsea and Tyler’s beach destination wedding in Los Cabos, Mexico. Full of bright, beautiful colors and rich textures, it seems that Los Cabos was the perfect destination for this fun and vibrant couple. Enjoy as our lovely bride shares wedding planning wisdom and highlights about this lovely locale and their dreamy beach wedding destination!
Wedding Style: Destination Beach Wedding
Colors: Brown, Ivory & Magenta
Ceremony & Reception: Barcelo Los Cabos Palace Deluxe in Los Cabos, Mexico.
Photographer: Jason Grover Photography Regina, SK, Canada
Wedding Stationery: MagnetStreet Weddings
Our reception. We had two of the best MC’s who really set the tone and made everyone in the room laugh. They put so much work into preparing for it and even made a video for us. Afterwards, we went and lit sky lanterns on the beach which was really cool.
Advice you’re glad you took:
Not to sweat the small stuff
Advice you wished you took:
To not worry about the little details as no one will notice. This may be different because I had a destination wedding … but I had a certain vision of details i.e. chairs and table clothes. I spent extra money to have the fancy decor and no one really paid attention at the reception and the day went by so fast for me–that I didn’t really either! haha
Advice you’d like to give:
Remember this day is about you two and that is all that matters, you will not please everyone.
Best part of the whole wedding day:
Finally being married to Tyler! Also, we had our wedding pictures taken in the town of San Jose Del Cabo and on our way back, we had a guy on the street come up and serenade the two of us with his guitar–pretty cool. I guess that is technically where we had our first dance!
Vendor Shout Outs
Jason Grover is truly an amazing photographer and any bride and groom would be lucky to have him take pictures of the most important day of your lives. Jason is incredibly creative and his eye for detail is unbeatable. I am so glad Jason was able to make the trip to Mexico with us to take pictures on our special day–it wouldn’t have been the same without him. Jason even took “Trash the dress” pictures of our wedding party where we went in the ocean in our wedding clothes … really fun! I recommend destination brides to do it!!
Barcelo Los Cabos Palace Deluxe
Best resort! I highly recommend them for weddings. They make you feel like a celebrity!! (It is also a resort fit for the elite–as Hilary Clinton was staying there at the time of my wedding.) Our Ceremony took place at the gazebo in front of the ocean and the reception in one of their ballrooms.
Our wedding planners at this resort were Ariadna and Abigail. They were so amazing and made our day so special. They took care of all the details before and during the day and in the evening made sure the reception was going according to plan. They really exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend getting married at this resort! They made us feel like celebrities!!
Every aspect of using MagnetStreet was great! I am big into online shopping and being able to choose between a large variety of designs and customize it myself was so convenient and easy! I love all the options that there are to choose from. I sent out magnet save the dates which all my guests have hanging on their fridges, our invitations were such a huge hit with people as well. We used the plane tickets since we were doing a destination wedding so it was very appropriate for setting the tone and getting people excited about the trip. All in all, I would recommend using MagnetStreet as it is easy, fast and convenient. The customer service is excellent and you can personalize all the products to your liking!!
On behalf of all your vendors Chelsea and Tyler–we thank you for your kind words!
Congratulations! Thanks so much for letting us in on your beautiful wedding day! We wish you and Tyler every happiness!
