Brittany + Vaido’s Pre-Wedding Activities!

As you may have seen the teaser photos read from my previous blog post…I was in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico at the beautiful Cabo Del Sol resorts for Brittany and Vaido’s Wedding!

All the guests stayed at the luxurious Fiesta Americana Hotel on the Cabo del Sol property. Fabulous views of the ocean and amenities made for a relaxing atmosphere away from the busy touristy downtown Cabo San Lucas. To help kick off the wedding…Brittany and Vaido had a small intimate bonfire on the beach. A great time to catch up and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere that is Cabo.

Bonfire w/the girls on the Fiesta Americana beachfront

A quick photo with Jeff and Inga…a former bride and groom of mine from 2009! Vaido was actually a groomsmen at that wedding…and that’s how they heard about Nakai Photography!


Stealing a moment away from everyone for a quick moment

The following day…all the ladies were decked out for the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner~

We met up at the Cabo Del Sol clubhouse where we took “limo golf carts” to the beachfront where the ceremony would be held.

As we were waiting to return to the Fiesta Americana for the rehearsal…the sky just lit up on fire. It was pretty ridiculous to witness!

It was a fiesta at the Fiesta Americana- the party area had an ocean view…sweeet!

Lots of photos of the details. Cabo San Lucas is in Mexico…why not have a Mexican themed party?

And of course…live Mexican music!

Warming up on the dance floor

All the sisters put together a fun game for the bride and groom to play. I love this photo all of them laughing in the background

One of the highlights of the night was a video compiled by by Brittany’s sister who was unable to make it to Cabo. It was heartfelt slideshow…and I didn’t even watch it…I was watching Brittany the whole time…a photo tells you just how much it meant to her.

And of course, we couldn’t end the night w/o a creative photo. We headed down to the beach and captured this photo using a Fiesta Americana beach umbrella! Love.

Stay tuned this week for the actual wedding photos! I loved Cabo…and there are so many amazing photos, it’s really difficult to narrow it down!
