BRIDE & GROOM: Jill & Adam
WEDDING DATE: February 27, 2009
LOCATION: Sunset Da Mona Lisa restaurant, Cabo San Lucas
GUEST COUNT: 54
MEXICAN COFFEES: Jill & Adam added some great extras to their wedding, such as the Flaming Mexican Coffee, with Kahlua & Tequila. Not only do these coffees taste delicious, but they are a show in themselves, as the waiters drip fire as they pour the coffee. Their guests loved this!
USING THE RESTAURANT’S COLORS: Jill decided early on that she loved the colors of the Sunset Da Mona Lisa restaurant just as they were, and so she chose those colors as her wedding colors (khaki, brown, terracota and she added in green). She was then able to use the restaurant’s own linens, overlays, chargers, napkins & chairs, rather than having to bring in rental items. She chose a very organic look for the table centerpieces that matched perfectly as well. Not only was the look fabulous, but this saved her money that they could then use for other things…like Mexican Coffees.
VIEW YOUR WEDDING AS A LIFE EXPERIENCE: Jill & Adam were legally married at the local Cabo judge’s chamber and had a great time with their witnesses and Judge Carlos. They got a rare glimpse of Cabo life away from the tourism (accompanied by me, their local guide). Dressed in their Cubs sports attire, they celebrated their civil union right up the stairs from a local taco stand.
