How we had a destination wedding amidst COVID:

At my wedding, we had to take a lot of measures for ceremony and reception. We had to take social distancing into consideration. All the vendors personally had to follow strict protocol and wear face coverings. They took our temperature upon entering & leaving all venues. All places provided hand sanitizer as well. Due to it being a destination wedding we took precautionary measures to quarantine before we took off to Cabo and get tested after we got back. ( All came back Negative ;) ) Due to our small intimate wedding size we decided we didn't want to postpone our wedding for the second time. All locations were still closed due to Covid, but decided to open just for us. So it made the whole experience even better!
The Reason we chose Cabo:
- It's a farm to table venue
- ACRE rescues injured/abandoned dogs. Then adopts them out to the States and Canada. (I also Foster dogs so this was a BIG PLUS for me)
- Acre is a beautiful hidden gem in Cabo. It's like being in Bali in the desert!
- We loved the idea of our guest surrounded by the Mango orchards.
Our wedding was a surprise wedding too!
Why I chose a mantilla veil:

About me: In 2010, while shopping for my bridal gown, I quickly realized that bridal stores had a very small selection (or none!) of lace mantilla veils. I ended up getting my veil from Spain and after all the compliments I received on my wedding day about my veil, I knew I had to bring these beautiful, authentic, quality, Spanish-made veils to brides in the US. My husband and I planned the whole business on the plane during our honeymoon! Today, we carry a large selection online of mantilla veils and have been featured in many bridal blogs and magazines.
