Real Weddings: Jillian + Knute Part I

Anna Kuperberg is one of those photographers who simply want to make you jump into their images and take part in the festivities.  The color is so crisp, the settings so dramatic!  Recently, Anna photographed Jillian and Knute’s wedding at the fabulous One and Only Palmilla Resort in Cabo San Lucas, one of the world’s premier hotels. 

This gorgeous invitation, designed by Peculiar Pair Press, let the guests know that they were in store for something special.

Guests received welcome bags upon their arrival, monogrammed with the couple’s wedding logo. I believe that welcome bags are essential for destination weddings. Your guests have traveled far and wide to reach you, a little gift is much appreciated, and they will remember the gesture!

It was a multi-day event, so let’s start off the festivities with the rehearsal dinner!  With a setting this perfect, how could it not be stunning?

I absolutely love the lanterns that allow the party to carry on past what I’m sure was a gorgeous sunset.

Some details:

I am loving the escort cards and the blend of patterns on the linens and papers. 

They had a pinata!  How fun is that?

And just look at this tablescape.  There’s that estate seating making another appearance.  What makes this table work so well, even though it’s relatively simple, is that the yellow maracas draw the eye to the place settings and the length of the table.  Absolutely beautiful.
