Having overseen countless weddings as the owner of Sasha Wedding Photography boutique in San Francisco, Sasha decided to switch up the scenery for his own nuptials and head to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for the big day. On March 8, 2012 Sasha and his bride Mila married in a Jewish wedding ceremony at a private villa on the island. IQ Photo captured the entire occasion.
Mila is looked upon by friends and family as she slips into her gown’s romantic silhouette. The simple beauty of the gown’s detailed bodice and skirt’s light ruffles match the natural airiness of the wedding site.
Instead of creating a theme for their destination wedding, Sasha and Mila chose to make the natural setting of Mexico a base for their reception’s tone. Holding the ceremony amidst the area’s mountains and water, and creating table settings of neutral, wooden tones only enhanced the organic scenery and furthered the wedding’s relaxed beachy mood.
The groom is accompanied by his parents during the walk towards the chuppah, while the bride is escorted by hers. Having their photographer capture Sasha’s face while Mila walks towards him encapsulated a moment that neither bride nor groom will ever want to forget.
In line with the airy Mexican beaches, the couple chose a bamboo wood chuppah lined with flowing white fabric to fully encompass the coastal ambiance. It was the perfect backdrop for their first kiss as husband and wife!
Despite the destination, Sasha and Mila kept their roots close and included the traditional Hora dance and Ketubah signing at their wedding. The hut-like dance floor with open views of the ocean reminded guests, as well as Sasha and Mila, of their beautiful beach atmosphere and kept the theme of this ceremony at a subtle forefront.
