A Moroccan-inspired yellow letterpress-printed and laser-cut suite spoke to the exotic nature of the destination and mimicked the intricate metalwork of the lanterns that decorated the reception.

Meka & Shon in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico

The Bride Meka Nichols, 34, attorney
The Groom Shon Jennings, 38, finance director
The Date March 5

Chicago locals Meka and Shon always loved to escape to Los Cabos, Mexico. So when they got engaged, the couple knew they wanted to share the beach getaway with their closest friends and family. Inspired by the Baja California peninsula’s neutral palette, Meka and Shon worked with stone gray and chose canary yellow for a bright accent. By adding native succulents, burlap and grapewood branches, they created the ideal look for their relaxed wedding day.
