Mimi and Mark's wedding surpassed every expectation I had. The day was simply perfect--the weather was to die for, the bride and groom were incredibly happy and in love, and every guest was relaxed and excited to share the day with the couple. Not to mention the fact that anyone who says a destination wedding can't be a killer party is dead wrong--this one probably went all night!

I started off the day as I usually do, with the girls. I shouldn't have been surprised that Mimi chose a spectacular Monique Lhuillier gown to wear for her wedding



No flip flops for Mimi!


I took the girls all around the property of the Westin Regina Los Cabos to take advantage of some of the crisp bright colors



I love this shot of the girls talking and laughing


Let's not forget about the very handsome groom


Or his big crew of hot groomsmen


The ceremony was beachfront and gorgeous. The programs:

The first glimpse of Mimi and her dad before they made it down to the beach. I love that her dad wanted to wear a white suit so they'd be the only ones in all white


They were kind enough to provide these little umbrellas so the guests could find some shade during the ceremony


This couple looked at each other so sweetly during the ceremony

General rule--if there's a bed on the beach, jump on it!


Then relax a bit

Look at this beautiful couple!


The lobby of the Westin is so cool that I've been waiting this whole trip to shoot there



The seat assignments at the reception were awesome

Mark and Mimi did not stop the party when this reception ended at 11:30. They threw a huge after party bash that probably went until 3 at least!

Mimi & Mark's amazing wedding vendors:

Coordinator: Fiestas Los Cabos Fiestas Los Cabos, run by my good friend Tara Null is the top coordinating company in Cabo. They are first class all the way. Tara and her team have every single detail accounted for and every wedding I've worked with them has been absolutely flawless. If you are getting married in Cabo, they should be your first call. Their website will be finished in a few weeks, but for now just send an email to tara@fiestasloscabos.com for info.

Flowers: Elena Damy. Elena's flowers are perfection. Each bloom is gorgeous and she does an incredible job with the decor. The flowers are always fresh and beautiful, plus she's great at coming up with creative ideas! You should check her out!

Videography: Elysium. If you've got the budget for it, flying down a videographer is an awesome idea, and Elysium travels frequently for weddings. They're local out of Orange County, so it's not too far!

DJ: DJ David Chang I can't believe Mimi and Mark flew in a DJ but it was probably the smartest decision they made (except for me, of course!). This DJ is out of NYC where the couple are from, and he was awesome. He threw the most raging party i've ever seen, not just for a destination wedding but for ANYWHERE. The AV was impeccable, the music choices killer, and and the atmosphere surreal. Mimi and Mark's guests were in for a real treat. I highly recommend him.

Venue: I loved shooting at the Westin. It's bright and gorgeous, and the food was delicious! The restaurant where the reception was is so cool also. Other venues I like are Casa Del Mar, The One and Only Palmillla, Las Ventanas, The Marquis Los Cabos, the Cabo Del Sol Country Club, and the private homes in Del Sol and Palmilla.

Hope this helps some of you Cabo brides!

Mimi and Mark, I can't thank you guys enough for having me here, it was so awesome!
