Here’s three things that happened to us this week that put the BIGGEST smile on our faces:
- We scheduled two weddings this week that were literally the cutest ever…(the one below is our 2nd feature of the week, so you will see what we mean soon!)
- We received the most heart warming messages from our AW members that literally brought us to tears. PS. We love you guys so much!
- We booked a flight to NYC for a workcation…one that we CANNOT WAIT to share with you all.
Our jobs here at Adriana Weddings are ever evolving, all encompassing, and are simply jam packed with endless inspiration and love, and its all because of you. So thank you for being so wonderful, and for following along with us. We appreciate every single one of you!
So for today’s feature, we are taking you guys to Cabo del Sol in Mexico for one of the prettiest destination weddings that has ever graced our wedding network. Every single detail is phenomenal, and the charming couple’s love story is so darling. So, take a deep breath and get ready for some light and airy inspiration from photographer, Photo by Julieta.
HOW THEY MET & THE PROPOSAL
“Ken and I met after Nashville’s most known horse race, Steeplechase in May, 2013. We were introduced by a mutual friend and after that we began a prolonged friendship that would later evolve into something more serious. Ken proposed to me Valentines day 2017. He totally caught me off guard as he woke me up in our new house that we had just moved into with a loving and sweet proposal and I of course said, “Yes!” Our two dogs Ricky and Lucy are the only two witnesses to it all” says Brittney.
“Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be! Our inspiration was for the event to be white, light and airy. The ceremony was a mix between elegant and charming. With the sea of Cortez as the back drop we did not want to take away from the natural beauty. The reception color palette was white, champagne, greenery with subtle hints of gold. We had an interfaith wedding so it was important that we incorporated Jewish traditions in our ceremony including a traditional chuppah, ketubah and the breaking of the glass.”
“The wedding dress I ended up getting was exactly what I had always envisioned: all lace, strapless trumpet gown. It was both classic and timeless. It was actually the first dress I ever tried on and the Monique Lhuillier dress was perfect for me. I wanted some more drama for the ceremony so I found an amazing overskirt designed by Watters from a bridal store in Cincinnati’s Bridal district called Bridal and Formal. I was able to further customize it by adding a handmade giant satin bow to the back! Two pairs of Badgley Mischka heels, and a long dramatic veil. I knew Ken would love the look, but it was everything I had been dreaming of. The groom’s look was a white dinner jacket with silk grosgrain peak lapels with a classic one- button closure. The jacket was paired with black tux pants, mixed with a textured black bowtie. We thought this classic look would be perfect for a destination wedding while channeling southern vibes” adds Brittney.
“Our wedding decor was white linens, dark chiavari chairs, white florals with greenery. We used glass and mercury votives and had gold trimmed chargers. One of our favorite elements was our white dance floor with gold initials reading”B&K” with an overhead crystal chandelier. We had wonderful wedding planners, Karla Casillas and Co. that made sure every detail was unbelievable!”
“The bridal bouquet had a variety of white flowers including roses, alcatraz calla and lisianthks. For extra detailing we added the extra lace off my dress to wrap the bouquet. The Groom’s Boutonniere was a white rose, greenery accent with a gold gem wrap. The Chuppah for the ceremony was draped with white sheer fabric flush across the top, with flowing fabric tied-back on each leg, along with an arrangement of white florals mixed with trailing greenery. The back panel was lined with white flower strands for a gorgeous backdrop. White rose petals were scattered down the center aisle. The flowers really added a dramatic but classic look to the overall style of the event” says Brittney.
SPECIAL ADDITIONS & FAVOURITE PARTS
“We both love music so we wanted to add elements of live music throughout the day. For the ceremony, we had an incredible duo Cabo Strings play the Violin and Cello, and it was beautiful. During the cocktail hour we had a traditional six man mariachi band! It was perfect to bring in some Mexican tradition to our Cabo wedding! For the reception, we opted for a DJ to bring the party to the dance floor. We also loved the food, it was really important that we enjoyed our wedding cuisine and Cabo Del Sol did not disappoint!”
THE MOST ANTICIPATED MOMENT
“Walking down the aisle seeing each other for the first time. We decided not to do a first look, and it turned out to be a great decision. As I walked toward him and we saw each other for the first time, it was such a special and sweet moment that really made everything feel so emotional. I walked toward him to become husband and wife. It made our ceremony that much more special” adds Brittney.
Thank you Brittney, Kenneth & Photo By Julieta for sharing this drop dead gorgeous wedding with us!
