A Romantic Beach Wedding at Sandos Finisterra Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

For their early-summer wedding, Lauren Cooper and Andrew Bickel whisked their family and friends off to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for a week of fun in the sun.

With their venue boasting sandy beaches and breathtaking views of the bright blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, the couple opted for an understated aesthetic for their décor. “The Pacific Ocean provided the most beautiful backdrop to the ceremony, and the view of the ocean and the marina was the perfect setting for the reception,” Lauren says.

The couple exchanged vows with their toes in the sand beneath an elegant arch draped in airy white fabric and a shimmering crystal chandelier. Further dressing up the ceremony digs were two stately white columns topped with bundles of romantic pink roses.

Lush garlands of succulents and eucalyptus dotted the reception tables, lending a subtle bohemian aesthetic, while gold chargers and mercury glass votives added a punch of polish. As a nod to the locale, the couple decorated their sweetheart chairs with macramé hangings and gifted each guest a bag filled with local treats and personalized koozies that said “Fiesta like there’s no mañana.”
