“You can’t stop love.” It’s a phrase Kim + Pierre have used to describe their serendipitous relationship over the years, and again proved to be so true for their Los Cabos destination wedding.
Long story short: about a week and a half before the wedding was to take place in beautiful Cabo, we had to move up the date to 4 days earlier! A change in Pierre’s work schedule meant that he could only be in Cabo for 24 hours (say what!?) – but Kim + Pierre took it all in stride and knew that the most important outcome of the entire trip was that they would be husband and wife.
Everything had to be moved- the venue, hair, makeup, transportation, décor, flowers. We were very lucky that all our wonderful suppliers were so accommodating and able to make the new date work. The experience reiterated why Cabo is one of our favourite spots for destination weddings.
And so the whirlwind wedding began, first with a surprise legal ceremony at the Edmonton International Airport in the early hours of the morning! Then we boarded the plane with the newlyweds and made our way to Cabo, landing mid-afternoon. The group was transported to our incredible resort – Secrets Puerto Los Cabos – and I took off to the wedding venue while the ladies began hair and makeup.
The symbolic ceremony and reception were both held at Sunset Da Mona Lisa – rated one of the Top 5 Coolest Restaurants in the World! I was in awe of the view and have to share this photo I took during setup at sunset – absolutely breathtaking!
It was a busy and action-packed day, but certainly the most memorable wedding experience I’ve had to date. Kim + Pierre’s friends and family were so welcoming and it was so much fun to share this adventure with them.

Considering a destination wedding to a tropical location? How would you like to say your vows on one of the top ten beaches in the world?
I recently vacationed in Barbados with my husband and we absolutely loved it! We spent most of our time at The Crane Residential Resort and it was an amazing place. Here are a couple shots of the resort from our balcony:
I also had the opportunity to meet with the Wedding Coordinator at The Crane and she took me to the various sites on property available to brides and grooms for their wedding ceremonies.
The Beach Wedding
Crane Beach is a stunning stretch of pink sand beach which has been voted ‘One of the top ten beaches in the world’ by Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, and ‘One of the sexiest beaches in the world’ by the Travel Channel. The Beach Wedding backdrop is best suited for a smaller ceremony of 20 guests or less.
The Cliff Pool Wedding Garden
With a surrounding backdrop of four waterfall infinity edge pools, the Cliff Pool Wedding Garden offers a breathtaking panoramic ocean view. Suitable for up to 150 guests.
The Historic Wedding Garden
Located adjacent to the original rooms of the Marine Villa dating back to the mid 18th century, the Historical Wedding Garden overlooks the cliffside and offers an amazing view of the ocean. Up to 150 guests can be seated comfortably at this ceremony location.
The Crane Beach Pool Wedding
Located adjacent to The Crane’s Beach Pool featuring classic Doric columns and a captivating view of Crane Beach, this area with its surrounding balcony overlooking the cliff is ideal for an intimate wedding ceremony with your two witnesses.
If you are interested in learning more about a destination wedding to Barbados or another location, I’d love to chat with you about it – perhaps over a lime daiquiri?
Last week I received an email from the team at bride.ca. They wanted to profile a wedding featured on our website and I must say – I’m flattered! Turns out it’s my own wedding that they’ve chosen to highlight. You can view the feature here.
Sean and I were married at the Jasper Park Lodge in May 2008, and though I have a background in corporate events, it was really through planning my own wedding that I was inspired to start this business and help other couples bring their dream day to life. I love that weddings can be so unique and personalized to each couple, and one of my favourite parts about this “job” is getting to know my brides + grooms and finding ways to infuse personal touches into their event.
