FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER:
Relaxed and fun—this was how Sara and Geoff envisioned their wedding, and it was definitely what they got, plus, a little bit more.
The sweet couple had a whimsical wedding with modern touches with a color palette of white, ivory, and soft pastels and a pop of color of coral used sparingly. These colors provided a pleasant contrast to the lush greenery and beautiful natural landscapes at Flora’s Farm.
Wedding preparations happened at Pueblo Bonito Blanco, a quaint and all white beach front hotel at the popular Medano beach in Cabo San Lucas. The Mediterranean-style resort provided a picturesque backdrop for the couple’s first look.
The radiant bride looked stunning in her Jenny Yoo ivory gown, which flaunted intricate floral embroidery. The dress bore a classic plunging neckline that accentuated Sara’s slender neck, and its fitted bodice and sweeping skirt gave her a flattering silhouette.
With her gown’s asymmetrical hem Sara was able to show off her precious pair of Loeffler Randall ivory open-toe heels with pleated bow accents. The unconventional bridal gown exuded her free-spirited personality to the last detail. Her freshwater oversized pearl earrings and soft and subdued makeup displayed whimsy and elegance. The same can be said about her hairstyle, with its low chignon and loose curls framing her face, was a mix of classic elegance and youthful playfulness.
Meanwhile, the groom and his groomsmen were clad in white button-down shirts and dark blue Hickey Freeman suits. Their top shirt buttons were left undone to add a casual flair. As for the bride’s small entourage, they wore matching BHLDN whipped apricot dresses with off-shoulder necklines and tulip hems.
At Flora’s Farm’s mango grove the last details for the ceremony setup were being taken care of and the string duo started to fiddle with their instruments. A glass of wine with a personalized wine box was set by the altar for the wine box ceremony. Ornate chairs made of raw wood and black iron were arranged in neat rows facing a rustic ceremonial arch crafted from driftwood. The arch was decorated with a couple of blooming bouquets of fragrant garden roses. A handful of similar bouquets were set along the aisle on the ground.
On the other side of the orchard’s hedge, was Flora Farm’s brick barn. The reception dinner was being set up in front of it while inside the bar prepared the Farm’s delicious cocktails including the much-famed Farmarita. Lounge areas had been placed for guests to relax in the shade. There were shawls in white, beige, and navy blue that were arranged in small wicker baskets and handed out to guests who felt cold after dark. There was also a table filled with small Siete Leguas tequila bottles in jute pouches, which the couple gave away as mementos.
As the first strings of the Musicale filled the air, the processional started. The groom walked with the officiant, a very close friend of the couple. They led the wedding party, the bridesmaids (Sara’s best friends) and groomsmen (Geoff’s brothers). Geoff’s adorable one year old niece scattered petals along the aisle with the help of her mom. Then, the much-awaited moment arrived as the gorgeous bride was escorted by her father down the aisle.
After the I do’s, the newlyweds and their guests headed to the courtyard behind the lovely red barn under the shade of a huge tree. Adding a hint of playfulness, the table assignments were printed on craft paper and strung on leafy vines that hung from a tree in the orchard. The guests delightfully looked for their names and plucked their tags off before heading to the reception area.
The reception area was blanketed by a canopy of string lights that looked magical, especially upon sunset. The dark wooden tables across the yard were left bare, save for a gracefully crumpled gauze fabric running along the middle. The centerpieces were tree shaped that looked like taken from a page of Alice in Wonderland. The branches covered in small leaves had fresh flowers and hanging glass baubles with electric candles inside. There were also pillar candles in tall clear glass holders and small vases of pastel-hued roses that lent glamour to the table setting.
Three large family style tables were set in a “U” shape around the dance floor. Only two of them had the mini trees centerpieces. The head table, where the couple’s closest friends and wedding party were seated on one side only, had lower centerpieces and more flowers framing the ground, by their feet, allowing them an unimpeded view of the party.
The guests had a proper feast of organic food prepared by and harvested from Flora’s Farm. Guests were encouraged to don funky accessories and have their photos taken for posterity at the Mirror Me Photobooth, while grabbing cocktails at the barn bar or hitting the dance floor for a little while. At the end of the night, Sara and her bridesmaids changed into a much more comfortable ensemble, super cute and matching sweatpants and hoodies for the bride’s best friends and a killer white workout outfit for Sara.
Sara and Geoff had an intimate wedding ceremony shared with the people they love the most. Light, relaxing, and joyous—it was exactly the kind of celebration they wished to have.
Special thank you to Sara, Geoff and AnaGomesPhoto for sharing this amazing destination wedding in Mexico with us!
