Two years ago my husband and I said I do in beautiful Cabo San Lucas at Palmilla’s One & Only hotel. A magical & intimate wedding that included 28 of our immediate family members and closest friends. I often get emails from gals asking for wedding dress, hair and makeup advice, so I thought, why not show you what I did for my big day. I included other fun pictures too, couldn’t help myself!
One of my besties did my makeup. We went with a neutral palette, a bronze/brown smoky eye, lashes (of course!), peachy cheeks and lips. For the ceremony, I wore my hair down and my veil was a traditional mantilla. For the reception, veil came off and my hair went up into a side chignon.
I always knew I wanted a lace dress and for it to be non-strapless. Since most wedding dresses are strapless, it didn’t leave me a lot of options. I tried on 5 dresses, this was number 2 and I knew the one. It’s Jim Hjelm Couture. I still look at my dress and love it- it’s feminine, timeless and the best part is that I danced in it all night and there was no pulling or adjusting. #perfection
Taking these beachside pictures was so much fun!
To my hubs: I can’t believe it’s been two years! There’s been no shortage of fun and laughter. They say you can’t force chemistry to exist where it doesn’t, in the same way you can’t deny it where it does. I think that sums up the story of us. Cheers to more fireworks in all of the years to come by your side. I love you P.
