Romantic Destination Wedding in Los Cabos Mexico: Ann + Kyle

beach wedding

Although they love Mexico as much as any couple possibly could, Ann + Kyle (self-described as somewhat traditional) had trouble finding a venue formal enough for their wedding until they laid eyes on Palmilla in Los Cabos. Ann tells us, It was our literal Heaven on earth: the food, the people, the chapel on the hill, everything is a dream. They included lots of meaningful, family-oriented details into their celebration and the incredible design by Lisa Vorce CO + florals by Mindy Rice Design brought a strong sense of warmth + charm to the destination setting.

Kyle + Ann invited the amazing Elizabeth Messina to Mexico to capture their special day + we don’t doubt you’ll find a favorite photo or detail to swoon over for the rest of the afternoon!

Lisa Vorce + Mindy Rice kept the setting breezy + understated with a palette of mostly white + cream. And lovely lace linens from La Tavola gave the tables texture + charm.

This is a wedding magazine for creatives. I love GERALDINE Magazine’s emphasis on artisans. It’s innovative and soulful. There is a wonderful ensemble of features, from real weddings to profiles on inspiring people and the magazine’s thick matte pages feel wonderful in your hands. I feel truly honored to have photographed the cover story for the premiere issue.
