THE MODERN, MINIMALIST ARCHITECTURE of Mar Adentro, one of Los Cabos’ newest luxury hotels, has shaken things up here in Baja! With such an innovative and powerful design statement before us, we couldn’t help but be inspired! Elena, our Creative Director and Lead Floral Designer, said “a well-designed space like [Mar Adentro], with its seamless, clean lines and infinity views, fulfills a deeper need we all have for simple beauty and harmony.” And, from that moving statement another wedding inspiration photo shoot was born! Working with the hotel, Elena designed a monochromatic, uncomplicated tablescape at Nube (which means clouds in Spanish), the rooftop cafe and lounge at Mar Adentro. “The simple setting and elegant tone of the hotel called for subtlety and purity,” says Elena “but I wanted to bring something raw and organic to it as well. To me, the hanging roses brought delicacy and sweetness, and the bamboo canopy echoed the natural cocoon of The Nest restaurant below.” Please, dear friends, take a look at what our collaboration with Mar Adentro, Macarena Chiriboga and Bamboo Biz; and Next Exit Photography produced for a little contemporary wedding inspiration!

A SWEETHEART TABLE WITH AN AMAZING VIEW, Elena puts the final touches on the simple, natural floral arrangement she created using white hydrangea, peonies and garden roses. The sand-colored stone table, modern china and white ottomans all belong to the hotel, and are designed to blend into the scenery. Nothing breaks or distracts from the view of the ocean and sky beyond.
FOR THE LARGER TABLESCAPE we partnered with the talented design team at Bamboo Biz to bring a natural structure to the stark setting. For events, a ceiling of any kind can bring shelter to the guests seated below, as well as much needed shade and wind protection to flowers and candles. But a structure, even one as light as this modern bamboo canopy, is also ideal for lightweight botanical installations like our floating roses. Below the canopy we placed our square dinner table and covered it with a simple taupe linen table cloth. Two of our custom designed woolen benches, as well as brown leather chairs from the hotel and our lush all white floral centerpiece complete the design. Flowers used included open garden roses, lisianthus, hydrangea, and peonies. Simple place settings were the final touch on this modern organic design.
TEAMWORK AND COLLABORATION are everything. Of course, our in house wedding planners Claudia Morales and Elsa Dilasser love introducing our clients to the stunning beauty of Mar Adentro. We thank the teams from Mar Adentro, Bamboo Biz and Next Exit Photography for their vision, flexibility an cooperation. Another incredible design to inspire your own dream cabo wedding!
