It’s a special kind of privilege to plan events for fellow wedding vendors, so we caught all the feels when Baja Luna — the newest and coolest wedding venue in San Jose Del Cabo — asked us to create a styled dinner just for wedding planners. We developed a sweet and spicy vibe inspired by the mango farm the venue sits on, and dubbed the fiesta “The Summer of Color.” Bright florals, bold signage, and attention to the tiniest details (hello matching runners on the passed hors d’oeuvres trays) were perfectly layered on top of the venue’s organic color palette of lush mango groves and contemporary Mexican architecture. We treated guests to cozy rattan lounge seating and bodega-inspired gift bags upon arrival; each one was filled with wedding planner essentials like notebooks, fanny packs, and programs made to look like grocery store receipts. But the real star of the show was the in-house food and beverage service. Guests sipped artisanal tequila and mezcal cocktails courtesy of Código 1530, slurped local oysters, and slammed back Baja Luna’s signature chambongs. They dined on hyper-local, farm-to-table goodness like esquites with crickets underneath a dripping canopy of string lights. And they gorged on fresh deep-fried churros, because even the most eco-chic menu isn’t complete without a sweet treat. This may not have been our first rodeo planning a Mexican destination fiesta, but it was definitely our best.
