This sun-drenched, floral-filled dream has us craving a long vacay somewhere tropical and warm. If you're looking for wedding inspiration that is every bit romantic as it is beachy - then this one's for you! Just wait until you lay eyes on the colorful, feminine color palette and organic arrangements from Natural Pina, they're just too good to be true. Leave it to Sophie Epton Photography to capture every swoon-worthy detail, see it all unfold at the full gallery! From Chassie Anders, owner of Crown of Glory Beauty... As a hair + makeup artist, I have had the opportunity to work on a number of styled shoots, but this one was a first for me. I recently attended a conference in Austin, TX called The Up Factor, and after listening from some of the wedding industry's finest, I had a dream to get to Cabo and create some content for my future brides, website, and other social media platforms. So I sent an email titled "So Many Dreams" to my photographer friend, Sophie Epton, and with her guidance, I began turning my dream into a reality.Each detail of this shoot was very intentional from our choice of vendors, shooting in soft light on film, to the color palette. Our hope was to give each vendor freedom to create something pretty, magical, and new in order to give some inspiration for future couples. The end result blew me away. I could not have asked for a better team of collaborators who helped work together to complete the project. Every little detail fell into place, and I am still in awe each time I look at these photos. While we wanted to create something magical, we also wanted it to feel real. Day one, we shot the beach side ceremony and courtyard reception. While the florist and amazing Diamante crew were setting up the ceremony, Sophie and I were at a stunning residence on property setting up the tablescape, and getting our bride + groom ready to say "I do".The home's Mexican desert cottage vibes were the perfect background for each shot. As soon as I arrived on property, I just knew that we had to place our reception table in front of the coral and white bougainvillea blooms in the front courtyard. Did I mention the dreamy Mexican tiled fountain? Like I said, perfect backdrop for our reception. After a group effort of setting up the table with a Tono & Co linen runner, gold flatware, and the most beautiful arrangement of blooms (some picked from the florist's personal garden), we lit the candles, and Sophie began shooting her magic.The "wedding guests" enjoyed eating all the beautiful gourmet foods + drinks prepared by Diamante's head chef. After our mock reception, we headed over to the beach. Walking barefoot up to the ceremony felt intimate with only 12 thonet chairs set up; while the sea of insane flowers installed at the altar made it feel like a dream. As the sun was setting, the ocean roaring, and wind blowing, we shot the ceremony. We captured some great moments of our local couple, Gaby + Andres. I loved that they were a real married couple, because you could feel their chemistry as they gazed into each other's eyes. After the sun went down, we headed to have a much needed celebratory dinner + drinks at The Dunes, one of Diamante's restaurant spots, and discussed as a team how the day went.Day two, we focused on the detail shots of the dreamy invitation suite, the Susie Saltzman rose gold ring, bridal bouquet +boutonnieres, getting ready, and the couple on the staircase lined with more bougainvilleas and Agave plants. But that's not even the most exciting part---we got to set sail with our bride + groom on The Mick Yacht, often used by Diamante for sunset cruises. We were able to get shots of our couple in front of The Arch!! I kept on pinching myself because I could not believe that we were all here, in Cabo, and we just wrapped up my dream shoot.
