Josh + Ashley's wedding in Cabo was one of my favorites in 2017.
Most destination weddings have a twist of tropical, but they took a "black tie" approach to Cabo! It was one of the biggest bridal parties I've ever seen, with 12 bridesmaids & 10 groomsmen -- and the best part -- their hearts matched their go big or go home mentality. These two loved on every single one of their guests so intentionally, and later I found out how much they relied on God to orchestrate and lead this day as well as the days leading up to their wedding. They had been dating for 9 years on their actual wedding day, part of the time across Texas & Southern California.
From Ashley: "We had both always wanted a Springtime, black tie, and fun destination wedding ever since we had begun talking about marriage! After exploring the idea of several destinations, Cabo Del Sol came to mind. I instantly knew it was the place for our 2017 wedding and prayed for availability for our time frame and party size! Josh's dad passed away from stage 4 lung cancer before the wedding, which helped us move back to Texas after living in Socal together for a short time.
The venue also had a golf course, which was special to us. Josh is a golf-lover and we spent many hours on golf courses everywhere with his dad. Josh even went out to the golf course before the ceremony by himself and asked a golfer if he could borrow his club & take a swing before he got married. Matt & Natalie got a shot of it, and Josh turned around in disbelief, shocked at how long and perfect his drive was! His dad was definitely there in spirit.
We were also blown away by the venue’s beauty and ability to fulfill our dream venue (beautiful ocean view backdrop with a rocky coastline, all while saying our vows on a beautiful green lawn – and that beautiful flower arch! It was perfect!). The terrain and scenery of Cabo also helped us feel like we brought a little of our time together in CA with us to Cabo, as the desert terrain with the ocean is very similar to SoCal! We grew so much in our time together in SoCal and Cabo took us back to those times!
Our wedding was amazing, and we both truly feel so blessed to have been given each other! Our Cabo wedding was a celebration of life well-lived & of life soon-to-be lived with all our close friends and family, it was the best thing we could have asked for."
