Hey there! It is terrifying when you are asked to write something about yourself....
So here is my story, well my professional life story because my personal will be too long and for that one we will need to share a glass of wine.
I moved to Cabo San Lucas when I was fresh out of college. Los Cabos back then was so pristine and rustic, yeah a very small town with one stoplight and giant beaches you could see for miles. There was really not that many options to finding a job so I venture in to timeshare, then retail and the occasional translation jobs. One fine day in April 2001 I was invited by a Local Restauranteur owner to help her with planning a wedding for one of her recurrent customers...My answer was NO! I have no idea about planning a wedding.... I will pay you she said... I said no thanks.....
Weeks went by and she asked again...Karla I will pay you good... I said how much?? She said this much $$$$.... I said YES! Hahaha
Now really I had no idea what I was getting in to, all the logistics, details, timing, vendors, payments, accommodations, transportation, food and beverage... I can go on and on. Being a perfectionist and visualizing all that was needed I found what I wanted to do for life!! Yes!! this is my momentum of control!! I said. Love planing events, specially weddings; so blessed now that I share this with my wedding planners and so blessed to build wonderful relationships with my clients and vendors! Let's meet soon, Ciao for now!

Hello there! I’m so happy to share a little about me! I’m originally from Morelia, Michoacan, a beautiful colonial city two hours from Mexico City. Since I moved to Los Cabos (9 years ago) I fell in love with this amazing place. I found my paradise here and I’m always so happy to share this amazing destination with all the couples that come to us looking for recommendations. I love my work, more than anything. I was that 5 year old girl dreaming about her wedding, and now the universe gives me the chance to help others to fulfill their dream and vision. I been doing weddings for 7 years now and every single couple I have the pleasure to work with, leaves a special memory in my heart. I hope we can meet soon and help you to experience your dream! Until then... Amelia (Meli)

Lisa Wilson, Sr. Wedding and Event Planner
Hey there, a little about me; I was raised on a small mixed farm in Southern Ontario, Canada. Spent 35 years as a professional Snow Sports Instructor and Racing Coach. The love for sports, helping people relax and have fun, was the best reward of all. My other passions were my gardens, motorcycle and antiques. I am a color girl, very eclectic, always wanting to learn new things, as well as love to cook and entertain. I spent many years working in the hotel/resort industry, coordinating special events. Understanding the differences between the client's needs and wants, I am able to fulfill and execute their desired goals and take great pride in the accomplishments.
I look forward to talking to you soon one day by the ocean, making a toast to you and your fiance´s wonderful future together. Cheers! Lisa
