Not many venues can bring you back to Old Mexico as lively as Go Canseco in San José del Cabo. But today’s inspiration for Mexican weddings is aesthetically authentic and romantically wrapped, rugged textures and cute wildflower designs!
Lola del Campo, owner of UpSouth, immediately fell in love with the distinctive elements of this venue. It was a great pleasure to turn them into our vision! The walls of the dwelling and the antique elements all brought out the vivid colors of the floral designs. The preeminent Mexican folk art called “Papel Picado” was used for the Mexican wedding altar in the hope that more people will embrace the Baja style enchantment!
LA76 Photography captures the authenticity of this editorial and brings every element to life through the soul of its images. Do you feel inspired by ancient Mexico? Let’s have a look:
Champagne wedding dress
What a beautiful polkadot overlay! Leo Sicairo’s wedding dress design is overly romantic and softens the rough living environment.
Once you get past the initial beauty spurt of this Old Mexico property, all eyes will be drawn to the one and only Papel Picado!
Shredded Paper Ceremony Background
You may have seen Papel Picado before. As a rule, it is used to make banners to decorate the Día de los Muertos. However, today you see this epic Mexican wedding backdrop backdrop of maracas maracas. Talk about patient creativity! What underlines the beauty of this Mexican folk art style more than such a tapestry ?!
Robust ceremony chairs that play so well with the living structure.
A statement background like this Papel Picado can be used multiple times during a wedding. For example, the treasure or the couple’s head table could be placed in front of it for reception. More bang for your buck, right? Let such beautiful works of art shine throughout the day.
Romantic Mexican wedding reception
Creative seating displays are a must, and this resin sign doesn’t disappoint!
It’s a palette of wildflower pinks and burgundy for this floral table runner created by Lola del Campo. We love the illusion of “living” flower arrangements for this wedding ceremony and reception vignettes!
We love all the unexpected here at GWS, and this wildflower adorned grand piano is definitely unexpected!
Would you like to dance? Despite being in an Old Mexico residence, this interior still has an “empty slate” elegance to it.
Dessert and candlelight
Oh, the color of this velvety linen is about romantic paired with natural candlelight. We feel the sweet seclusion of this historic place!
Cabo Cakes created an impressionistic wedding cake with the warmest color palette. Everything is wonderfully reminiscent of old Mexico.
To sum up, tonight in our dreams we will travel to Old Mexico … or just make a Grand Papel Picado. Maybe both!
