Sophia and Danny are recent Portland residents but when they got engaged, they decided to have their wedding at a place close to their heart, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Sophia’s parents own a house in Cabo and over the years, it has become a source of relaxation and joy for them. So it’s only fitting that it’s where they decided to tie the knot.
Their wedding weekend began with an intimate and fun rehearsal dinner in downtown Cabo where elvis impersonators serenaded their grandparents, the ketuba was signed and we got to hear a love letter (read aloud by Danny) that Sophia wrote to her future husband many years before meeting him. It was the perfect set up to a beautiful wedding day.
The following day, Sophia and Danny exchanged vows on the beach of the Cabo Surf Hotel, a charming boutique resort nestled a little farther from the craziness of Cabo. Their ceremony gave us tender stories of their beginning as a couple as well as hilarious moments that these two have encountered along the way.
What we didn’t realize is that behind this couple was also an incredible cast of characters that would complete their wedding party and guests. You really couldn’t ask for a better group of people, including the couple themselves, who had us laughing through our sides during the dancing and wiping tears during toasts.
We honestly wish we could go back and do this wedding over and over again. It was that much fun and we thank Danny and Sophia for trusting us to capture it all.
