When getting married in Los Cabos (whether you are in Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo, Pescadero or Todos Santos), one of the most important elements you can add to your wedding is candlelight! And we have lots of candles, just waiting to decorate your wedding tables and/or ceremony.
The Baja nights are dark (unless you are fortunate enough to have a full moon!) but that makes your candlelit tables and ceremonies even more romantic! Some brides (like the table below) use just candles to decorate their tables. This bride used 50 of our candles (or varying dimensions) for each of her 4′ x 8′ rectangular tables.
Sometime (like below) candles are an accent to everything else important that is going on on a table.
And sometime, though this is actually rare here in Cabo San Lucas, our candles are there to light up the actual night time ceremony. (Most photographers prefer to photograph sunset ceremonies an hour before sunset, but this Cabo wedding ceremony was beautifully photographed and truly stunning, even after sunset.) Click here for a great link to determine your Cabo wedding sunset time.
The bottom line is that when you are planning your florals for your Cabo wedding, you must also plan your candles. You will want a lot of them to create an ambiance that will be dreamlike and alluring!www.loscabosflowers.com

Take a look at this festive, fun & colorful 50th Birthday Celebration!!!
We worked closely with the client’s U.S. wedding planner, Jayne at Just Jayne Events, and the resort planner at Rancho Pescadero, Katie Thompson, to bring the birthday girl’s vision to fruition!
Our client was so thrilled with our paper flower wall, hand-cut and designed by our Donna (on the left) with help from Perla (on the right). This was a photo op location at the entrance to the resort and then provided a back drop for the 3-tier birthday cake. Adding succulents in pots also added a fun element of greenery to the rustic wooden farm tables. Our flags, and paper flower pom-poms, glowed as the pink & orange lighting shone in the Rancho Pescadero Palm Grove.
Celebrate your special milestones in style! Have fun, and create your dream event, we’re here to help!
Meet Crista & Patrice and their lovely families (and friends). We are proud to be one of the exclusive floral providers at the amazing Rancho Pescadero, in El Pescadero, about an hour north of Cabo. We design the florals for almost all of their events! An eco-friendly boutique resort with a “namaste” vibe, the environment at Rancho (as the locals call it) is intimate and gorgeous!
We created Crista’s bouquet to include colors that are familiar at Rancho…corals, and oranges, with subdued greens as well. Crista loves big mums and those featured prominently (and beautifully) in her bouquets!
Rancho Pescadero has just recently started offering a smaller wedding package (up to 14 guests) and so, with just 12 guests, Crista had a bridal bouquet and one bridesmaid bouquet. Both were lovely! And the smaller wedding was such a memorable experience for all involved!
With one long table for all of her guests, we created a mix of florals in bud vases, cylinder candles and mercury gold votives, that glowed all night long!

What a pleasure it was to work with Keely & Jeff, and their wedding planner, Katie Thompson, of Dazzle ‘Em Event Design, on their wedding florals!
We first met the cute couple when they came in January of this year for a site tour and floral meeting . At this meeting, we had a great time playing with the flowers, with Keely (working together with our floral designers) coming up with the perfect way to arrange a lot of precious small vases on a rectangular wooden farm table.
The end result of that meeting? The amazing floral decor you’ll see below.
Ceremony location: Cabo del Sol Golf Clubhouse Beach. We created a simple arch, framing the crashing waves at this amazing beach venue.
From the bridal bouquet, to boutonnieres, to the flower girl head wreaths, this couple’s florals were created with love & creativity!

With the first month of 2016 coming to a close (can you believe how quickly January has flown by!), we wanted to highlight a few more wedding trends that we think are adorable and truly fabulous and should be brought here to Cabo immediately!
- Especially with a destination wedding like this one in Cabo, it can be difficult to include all of our besties, especially our furry ones! So what better way to include them, then to give their photos a place of honor at the reception.
- Instead of linen table runner, try a floral table runner on a simple white linen. Lined with candles, this adds the drama of hundreds of flowers, still leaving room for your guests to be able to chat across and down the long table.
3. Greenery, and lots of it, is really hot right now, and it’s not just limited to the table. Hanging greenery, especially in a location like Cabo where for most of our venues, literally the sky is the limit, this adds an amazing view from the tables.
4. The flowers should, of course, scream glamour, but let’s not forget about the vase! Clear vases, emphasizing the beauty of the stems, with rocks (or shells, or jewels, or seaglass…the list goes on) are clean and simply gorgeous.
Let us help you bring these great ideas to life for your wedding in Los Cabos! We are the floral experts! www.loscabosflowers.com
Welcome to Mallory & Evan’s special day! It’s bright, beautiful and full of fun! We at Cabo Flowers & Cakes loved creating the flowers and floral decor for this exuberant couple for their dream destination wedding in Cabo! Once again, we also loved working with these amazing vendors here in Cabo: Beth Dalton, owner of For You, I Do Weddings and amazing photographer, Daniel Jireh. (Thanks for sharing the photos, Daniel!)
Mallory & Evan’s chuppah (shown above) was so creative and showcased their happy personalities perfectly! Those balls are officially called “pomanders” and we were so pleased with this whimsical wedding look!
We also had a blast creating this beautiful bouquet! Mallory wanted color and succulents, and we were happy to oblige!
Her bridesmaid bouquets were similar (just a bit smaller) and added even more pops of color throughout the wedding!
One of our favorite parts of Mallory & Evan’s floral design were these luscious hair flowers! What true beauty…just what every bride wants for her wedding day!
Congratulations, Mallory & Evan! Thanks for making Cabo Flowers & Cakes such a large part of your special day!

When Jessica & Josh shared their wedding design concept with us, they knew they wanted elegance! They had an amazing location for their Cabo wedding, at the world famous Sunset Da Mona Lisa Restaurant overlooking Monuments Beach and our thrilling Arch, and they wanted that to shine.
But they also wanted flowers and decor for both their ceremony and their reception that were special and glamourous!
We love what we created for them, in their theme colors of white, blush pink and gold. Take a look! (Photo credit: Sara Richardson Photography)
Mexico (and Cabo!) are known for their bright colors and festive attitude! It’s always fiesta time around here! Many of our clients like to bring this bright and happy feeling to their events through the flowers and decor that they choose. One really fun way to do that is to use Mexico’s famous paper flowers. While we offer, of course, the highest quality in real flowers, we still love paper flowers, too (they’re one of our specialties!)
How can you use paper flowers at your Cabo event? Here are a few ideas:
Incorporate the paper flowers in a real flower bouquet or centerpiece. The best of both worlds!
Use paper flowers on their own to create a bouquet, a centerpiece or a head piece. A paper flower tucked behind the ear says, “Viva la Mexico!”
Create garlands to line a walkway or over a window, walkway, or arch.
Use them as accents on mirrors, in trees, on lamps or anywhere else where you need a touch of color.
Use them on paper products. They can be glued onto anything, like gift bags, menus, programs, or signs.
We have no limit to our creativity here at Cabo Flowers & Cakes, so just ask us! We’ll design memorable paper flowers for you for your Cabo wedding or special event that will literally last a lifetime!
After 8 years at Cabo Flowers and Cakes, we can’t imagine how we’d get along without Perla. She is one of our top floral designers, having risen through the ranks at Cabo Flowers and Cakes over the years. She’s an orchid lover, and a wedding lover! In fact, one of her favorite parts of her job is going to the actual weddings and helping to set up all the florals. She’s a hard worker (it’s gets hot and sweaty, pulling together all the floral arrangements for a beach wedding in Cabo!) but she never complains! She can wield a staple gun along with the best of them, and can fix a troublesome flower with tools from her every-handy toolbox!
Perla’s favorite wedding locations are Cabo del Sol golf clubhouse and the Sunset Da Mona Lisa restaurant, and her favorite part of her job is producing the floral arrangements for a wedding. She says she loves it when she delivers the wedding flowers, and everyone smiles!
Perla recently worked with a local wedding planner, Katie Thompson of Dazzle ‘Em Event Design, putting together elaborate floral decor for a beachfront wedding. “I love Perla! I love the way she takes what she does so seriously!” said Katie. “Every wedding is very important to her. For every flower order, she checks, re-checks and then checks again to make sure everything is literally perfect!”
On a personal note, Perla is also an avid soccer player. In fact, practicing her English, she sang, “I love, love soccer!” as she was being interviewed! She also loves learning English and has become much more outgoing in her second language.
Why should a client use Cabo Flowers and Cakes? “Porque somos los mejores,” Perla says. (Translation: Because they are the best!)
