Love was in the air last night at Ross and Rachel's wedding at Villa Santa Cruz, Boutique Hotel in Todos Santos. Ross and Rachel celebrated their love in front of a small group of friends and family in a beautiful beach ceremony, followed by dinner and dancing under the stars. Take a peek into their special day.
Ross and Rachel had a few moments to themselves before the ceremony for a private photo shoot around the Villa. Ross was so enamored with his beautiful bride.
Shucking tradition, the couple opted to walk down the aisle together, hand in hand.
The bride's brother-in-law, Tim, officiated the ceremony. His kind words added such a personal touch to the afternoon.
After the ceremony, the guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers on the Villa's Roof Terrace. After the sun set, everyone took their seat downstairs on the back lawn.
The tables were lovingly decorated by Barb & Jan of Pueblo Magical Weddings. We love the use of colored antique glass, delicate flowers, lace tablecloths and mismatched chairs. The decor gave the wedding such a personal, antique feel.
The bride's sister, Jennifer, also added a few of her own touches - beautifully designed invitations and handmade butterfly place cards. Lovely!
The guests dined on exquisite cuisine provided by the Hotel California. The menu included appetizers of yellowtail sashimi, crab cakes and goat cheese flautas, a main course of braised leg of lamb and fish in a tomatillo-cilantro sauce, and, for dessert, churros with chocolate dipping sauce. Que rico!
The party carried on into the night and ended with the release of glowy wish lanterns next to the bonfire. The lanterns drifted up into a spectacular starry night.
We send our warmest congratulations to Ross & Rachel. Wishing you all the happiness in the world.
