A year after we met, Justin and I hiked up to a glacier on Mount Rainier, near Seattle. He dropped to one knee and proposed. Later that day, we saw freworks it was the Fourth of July and we pretended the celebration was for us. We chose Cabo San Lucas for our wedding; I’d wanted to get married in Mexico since I was a little girl, after vacationing there with my family. Luckily, it’s also an easy fight from Los Angeles, where Justin is a neurosurgeon and I’m a social worker.

We chose the small Esperanza resort because it hosts only one wedding a day, and our guests could mingle in an intimate setting. We set the date July 26, 2014. I met our planner, David Pressman of David Pressman Events while browsing in a paper shop, and he understood our casual, nontraditional vision from the get-go. On the Thursday before the wedding, we took early arriving guests out for seafood at Edith’s Restaurante.

We hosted a Friday barbecue on Esperanza’s beach, serving Mexican favorites like tacos, fajitas and stufed poblano peppers. Guests spent Saturday Jet Skiing, surfng, shopping in town or relaxing by the pool. Our dear friend married us on Sunday in a brief ceremony on the beach. After our I do’s, we moved to the poolside terrace and enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, followed by pan-seared sea bass or grilled Sonoran ribeye. We surprised our guests with a freworks display by Pirotecnia Herrera, and sparks few, just like they did when we met.
