Who doesn’t love a beautiful, simple beach wedding? Cabo in the winter is perfect weather and Cabo Azul was the perfect place for Ellie + Leslie’s wedding. Thanks to Braedon Photography for letting me share these gorgeous photos. :)

cabo wedding details

From Ellie, “We chose to have our destination wedding at Cabo Azul Resort, in San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico. Leslie and I wanted our wedding to be the culmination of the week’s celebrations. Our guests stayed there with us, which created an incredibly special atmosphere. From the beginning, we wanted the details to reflect our personalities. I did the artwork for the Save-the-Dates and Invitations, named the tables at the reception after our favorite tequilas, and we were toasted with Don Julio 1942 instead of Champagne.”

Thanks so much to Braedon Photography and congrats to Ellie + Leslie!

  32. Stunning dress and that ceremony space has taken my breath away.

  33. Thank you so much for your praise and congratulations!! The dress is by Marissa, a local designer from Newport Beach, California. It was purchased at Erin Cole Couture Bridal, in Newport Beach. It was the first dress I tried on- layered lazer-cut silk organza, which fluttered when I walked. The shoes are Christian Louboutin “Poseidon” in Perle.
    Thank you again for your kind comments! I’m so glad my vision came across.
    Best wishes,

  34. The dress is a Marissa 815, and she’s modified it by adding a belt and the shoulder straps. I wore the same dress to my January 2011 wedding.

  35. This looks like it was a beautiful wedding! I think Cabo is a wonderful place to have a destination wedding.

  36. Really amazing wedding photos! The bride looks so beautiful.
