THE PERFECT REHEARSAL DINNER IN CABO!
Melissa and Tommy started their destination wedding weekend off with a stylish rehearsal dinner right on the beach at Hacienda Cocina y Cantina. Hosted by the groom’s parents, the bride and groom invited their family and friends to dress in fashionable summer whites; however, the bride and groom surprised everyone by arriving wearing RED! Okay, Tommy wore mostly white, but check out his cool red loafers! Clearly, fashion is a huge part of their lives… as well as their equally fashion-forward, sophisticated guests! (and that turquoise necklace Tommy’s mom wore)
SETTING THE TONE FOR THE CELEBRATION
Elena Damy worked closely with the couple to bring their chic style into the event setting through flowers, fabrics, and candles. Beautiful florals in shades of red were boldly arranged in sculptural, locally-handblown aqua glass vases. Aqua is not only a part of the natural scenery, and therefore, already providing a huge backdrop to the event, BUT, it’s gorgeous when matched with reds. Elena created monochromatic bouquets of red gerbera, roses, alstroemeria, and tulips which she placed down the center of the wooden tables. They were paired with ocean blue pillows, modern glass hurricanes, crisp white table settings, and pale aqua stemware. Mexican-inspired floral menus added a thoughtful touch on the tables and the restaurant’s vintage-inspired lights strung over the whole party area ramped up the mood to FESTIVE and FUN!
LET THE WEEKEND BEGIN!
From the emotional toasts to the crazy dancing and endless hugs, Melissa and Tommy’s rehearsal dinner was a wonderful introduction to a weekend of celebration!
