An Exotic Beach Wedding in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico

Chicago locals Meka Nichols (34 and an attorney) and Shon Jennings (38 and a finance director) always loved to escape to Los Cabos, Mexico. So when they got engaged, the couple knew they wanted to share the beach getaway with their closest friends and family. Inspired by the Baja California peninsula’s neutral palette, Meka and Shon worked with stone gray and chose canary yellow for a bright accent. By adding native succulents, burlap and grape wood branches, they created the ideal look for their relaxed wedding day. — Amanda Black
