The statement “less is more” is undoubtedly one related to the concept of minimalism. An elegant, functional and orderly way of taking care of every detail, that is exactly what Cristina Cabrera, wedding designer and planner at Vivid Occasions, created in this design.
“We took the white color as a starting point to choose the rest of the elements that integrated organically with the environment, and could easily mix with the beauty of the venue we chose, Esperanza, An Auberge Resort,” writes Cristina, “we started to select details, furniture and accents carefully, in order to get a fresh and clean look soothed by some accents to evoke the warm and bright summer feel.”
Straight lines and symmetry with the harmony of different whites, neutrals, earthy tones created the perfect combination when paired with different rich rustic textures present at Esperanza where natural wood and stone are the principal materials found in the architecture and surrounding landscapes. The choice of dried flowers in lieu of fresh colorful tones complemented the design adding texture.
Esperanza, An Auberge Resort is a timeless venue. Breathtaking terraces on cliffs, private beaches, romantic architecture are trademarks of this location. We went with a venue that defines the essence of Cabo, with luxurious and inviting accommodations, impeccable and warm service and amazing food.
For the ceremony a semi-circle of pampa grass and other dried fillers with white touches, was arranged on the ground to anchor the space. It was intended to appear as though they had just grown from the sand.
Modern style white woody chairs added the white common thread to the design. The natural color of chair legs blend with the beach colors, letting the white shells pop from the sand. Aligning the aisle were candles in large clear candleholders held dried globe thistles.
The minimalistic and monochromatic concept was the theme for the reception as well.
Cristina continues “for the table centerpieces we definitely wanted to play with different elements and materials.” To give an organic feel shew added earthy tones found in the dry foliage such as bunny tail, white leather, amaranthus, white ferns, lentejilla, dried wild oats, lunaria, preserved craspedia to name a few.
All of these carefully, placed on ceramic and blown glass (locally produced) vases, sleek white ceramic “hammered” chargers, wooden candle holders, soft linen napkins and glass goblets and votives provided warmth to the clean straight lines of the imperial table setup.
We did not forget to add a bit of glam using metallic touches with the modern flatware. Simply because we can’t pass the opportunity to add that fancy detail. We created a cozy ambiance with a twinkle lights tunnel.
By embracing the desertic elements that the landscape offer and the endless summer vibes Cabo is known for this design showcases how a timeless set up can be adapted to this era.
