Once Mollie and Eugene actually started dating they knew it was going to be serious right away. It just took a while (6 months) from when they first met at a wedding until Eugene asked for her number on an app. No, it wasn’t JDate or JSwipe or even Tinder. They were playing Scramble with Friends.
Eugene proposed to Mollie in the backyard of his parents house.
“He was sneaking around for weeks trying to surprise me (not easy to do) and told me we were going to his parents for a birthday dinner for him. When we got there all the lights were out and he walked me to the backyard which was completely lit up in candles and Christmas lights. My favorite song was being played while he got down on one knee. All I did was scream, scream, scream of happiness. Eventually our entire family came down from hiding upstairs and our friends came over after to celebrate with us!”
Mollie did not want a typical ballroom wedding and the idea of getting away and having a vacation for their friends & family sounded ideal. They both love Cabo and knew it was the ONLY option for them.
They opted for an intimate ketubah signing followed by the traditional chuppah ceremony at the beach in front of all of their 175 guests who flew in for their Destination Modern Jewish Wedding.
The wedding party consisted of 10 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen, in coral dresses and ties. Bridesmaids wore light colorful gowns for the ceremony and were presented with traditional Puebla Mexican dresses each in a different color to be warn while getting ready. The bride wore a column backless silk dress, with a lace embroidered with spangles in a delicate piece for the back. Mollie chose to have her hair up and make-up was kept to an elegant and natural look that allowed her natural beauty to shine. Mollie looked positively gorgeous, a bride with a touch of old Hollywood glamour and yet light and fun for a beach wedding.”
Other choices were Stuart Weitzman bridal shoes for the reception and lovely foot jewelry for a comfortable and stable walk down the sandy aisle. To coordinate with the coral dresses the bridesmaids each carried white calla lilies in straight bouquets. For the bride herself a sweet mix of blush roses and peonies mingled with succulents. Groomsmen wore a coral tie over a white shirt and no jacket. In contrast the groom wore a blue navy jacket, no tie and a coral handkerchief with a succulent boutonniere.
Seconds before seeing his bride, Eugene looked serious and just a bit nervous. Seeing her spread a huge smile on his face as Mollie was truly a vision. The Ketubah signing was a lighthearted moment, intimate and special. The seaside ceremony site had an amazing chuppah using curly willow for texture, white delphinium and multi colored roses arrangements. Petals were thrown on each side of the aisle and the chuppah was ranked by metal lanterns. The bride made sure to have cute flip-flops available for guests when arriving at the ceremony site. At their seats they found white and gold maracas and a program. The rabbi officiated the ceremony supported by the amazing voice of the groom’s father who sang the sheva brachot, the seven blessings. For the Hakafah, the bride first circled around the groom, then the groom around the bride and finally both together.
Following the ceremony it was time to Party! Guests were ushered to the Sky Pool area of Pueblo Bonito Sunset Resort, on the highest spot with breath-taking views of the Pacific side of Cabo San Lucas. After dinner the party really got started with the hora.
