FLOWERS, FLOWERS, AND MORE LUSCIOUS FLOWERS!
A year ago this week — oh my goodness, already? — ELENA DAMY planned and designed this pastel gem of a Cabo celebration for Mirna and Steven’s wedding at Esperanza, an Auberge Resort.
Elena Damy herself created an entire atmospheric mood for the wedding using a palette of pale to bright pinks, dove gray, and soft creams against the natural beauty of Baja. The flowers used throughout the event included a variety of gorgeous tea and sweetheart roses in lovely shades of ivory, blush, candy, and hot pink, as well as wispy vines of Mexican Coral and velvety gray dusty miller for contrast and texture. The first major decorative element?
THE WEDDING ARCH
Our simple birch wood arch was used as the foundation for this romantic ceremony arch. Elena added large, floral dense arrangements to the corners of the arch in an asymmetrical style, and then connected them with whimsical vines of Mexican Coral. Softly draped panels of gauze fabric fell across and down the side for added romance.
HEARTS FILLED WITH LOVE
Elena suspended locally, hand-blown glass hearts from the ceremony arch as a memorable, decorative touch to the setting. (seen above) And, the bride and groom chose to share these same heart ornaments with their guests as keepsake wedding favors! As you can see below, Elena hung the silver and pink metallic heart favors from our large iron tree with personalized notes attached to each. Next to the tree sat a welcoming table holding the couple’s guest book asking their guests to leave a suggestion Mirna and Steven could add to their “bucket list” to tackle during their marriage. What a fun idea!
DINNER WITH A ONE-OF-A-KIND LOS CABOS VIEW
Esperanza is an incredible Los Cabos resort, offering one stunning event space and wedding venue after another. But the resort’s tiered terraces on the cliff overlooking the ocean is by far the most popular. No one, and we mean, no one, has a bad view of the sunset as it sets over the sea! And for Elena and her event design team, it’s a fun setting to dress up for special celebrations like Mirna and Steven’s wedding! Using a mixture of round and wooden rectangular tables, each dressed with either a full-length grey linen table cloth or matching fabric runners, the dinner area held a modern elegant appeal. On each table Elena added low rustic grape vine vases filled with lush floral centerpieces composed with roses, dusty miller, astilbe, succulents, and Mexican coral vine. Weathered mercury glass votives added low, romantic candlelight to the table top and wooden cross-back dining chairs unified the design to perfection. Just look at that back drop!
