After meeting in Cabo San Lucas, Melissa + Scott had a romance that hit the ground running. With kids and a courthouse marriage under their belts, they finally decided, 5 years after they met, to have the wedding they were meant to have. With their two gorgeous children and darling french bull dog (aptly named Cabo) in tow, Alchemy Fine Events helped these two design a wedding that was both fun and perfect as we head into this Cinco de Mayo weekend.

One of their favorite memories from the the was definitely seeing their two children walk down the aisle and share in that moment with them.

We’re so in love with their dessert table. Colorful pan dulce, margarita cupcakes, caramel horchata flan, chipotle spiced chocolate mousse… delish.

Beautiful details and wonderful presentation!

Melissa {the Bride} on May 3, 2013

Thank you for all the sweet comments. Our wedding was beautiful beyond words. I couldn't have done it without the help from my amazing wedding designer/planner Vanessa from Alchemy Fine Events. One of the best choices I made. Can't speak enough about her talent. She was able to take everything I envisioned and bring it into life. She made it very easy to plan a wedding while juggling my life as a mom of 2. She is brillant!! Justin Lee did an amazing job at capturing our wedding. His images are breathtaking! The way he was able to capture each and every special moment with such creativity was beyond expectations. thank you for covering our wedding 100 layer cake!
