Intimate Beach Wedding in Cabo San Lucas

Image Main Intimate Beach Wedding in Cabo San Lucas With the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean surrounding Baja California Sur, there's really no excuse not to have a beach destination wedding!  Baja's long sandy beaches are an ideal place for love celebration.  We love beach weddings because they offer limitless possibilities: you can plan a wedding elopement for just the two of you, and intimate wedding celebration with your closest loved ones, or you can plan a large luxury wedding soiree, and everything in between!

We loved designing and planning Francesca and Walter's intimate beach wedding in Los Cabos.  It was a beautiful celebration of love with their favorite people.  And sometimes, that's all we need.  A circle of loved ones, a beautiful organic chuppah, made from a drift wood we sourced locally, a bride in a stunning wedding gown, and a dashing groom.  And the shoes are only optional!  The flowers were elegant white with lush greens, and we loved Francesca's cascading wedding bouquet.  For the wedding ceremony seating we used contemporary wooden chairs.

The Pedregal beach with Pacific Ocean offered a stunning backdrop to their wedding ceremony setup.  We love how the rugged rocky mountain crashes down to the beach and into the sea, while on the other side the beautiful (and often quite empty) sandy beach offers a calming landscape.

Much love to Francesca and Walter today and always!

5 Tips for Creating a Romantic Beach Picnic

Image Main 5 Tips for Creating a Romantic Beach Picnic Summers are perfect for a beach picnic!  In Baja California Sur we are blessed with 350 sunny days per year, so our beach picnic opportunities are countless, and we might say we've become self-proclaimed experts on the topic, that's how much we enjoy beach picnics!

There are uncounted ways to prepare a beach picnic, and that's what we love about it the most.  All you need is a beach blanket or a towel, some shade (swimming suit, beach towel, a beach shade, and a solar protector is something we have in our car at all times), and a quick stop at a nearby store, and in 5 minutes you're set for a picnic on the beach!  For a more elaborate beach picnic, the one that you are planning ahead of time, only the sky is a limit!

Here are our 5 Top Tips for Creating a Romantic Beach Picnic:

1. The Setup

You'll need a beach blanket or a towel so that you can sit comfortably.  We recommend a shade or a tippee tent, so you don't get sunburnt. If you are planning a golden hour or sunset-time picnic, you can skip the shade. If you're planning something especially romantic, you can add some beautiful decor, flowers, and romantic string lighting (see our example on the photo).

2. The Food

We recommend finger food.  Something that you can enjoy with your fingers, and don't have to worry if the sauce is going to spill on you, or how will you serve the hot soup, for example.  The point is to have fun, remember that!  Our favorite beach picnic foods are a selection of cheeses and charcuterie, nuts, appetizers, mini sandwiches, crunchy veggies, guacamole, salsa, and desserts that you can savor with hand, like brownies and strawberries, for example.

3. The Drinks

Depending on the occasion, you can bring just anything you feel like!  Chilled wine, champagne, or a cold beer, maybe a pink lemonade, fresh fruit waters, and don't forget some plain water. (Don't forget the bottle opener!)

4. The Games

Bring along some fun games - be it a deck of cards, or a beach ball or a frisbee.  If you feel like for a more relaxing date, bring a book and read aloud to each other.

5. The Memories

Bring a camera to capture your memories forever.  We recommend Polaroid cameras; they are so much fun!  Or any other digital or film camera, but if you don't have any other camera handy, your smart phone will do just fine in capturing a couple of moments.  Just don't forget to create some printouts afterward, so you can hang them on the fridge or some other visible place, where you'll always remember the fun times you had.

We created this romantic beach picnic setup for a lovely couple, who wanted to celebrate their love in a unique setting on a beach.
