When Sarah and Harout were planning their destination wedding in Cabo, they had a list of must-haves: ocean views, florals, chandeliers, and fireworks! These spectacular elements came together to create their dream fairytale wedding that every guest would remember – from a gorgeous Armenian ceremony to their lavish white rose reception.
Keep reading to see all of the timeless gold and white accents, the bride’s stunning Galia Lahav gown, and stunning oceanside views from Garza Blanca Los Cabos. All beautiful photography by Allan Carrazco.
The bride’s dream Galia Lahav dress
Sarah had dreamed for years about wearing her favorite designer, Galia Lahav, before finding her perfect match in the “Gia” gown. Her floral detailed, corseted dress was perfect for Cabo with sheer tulle and champagne color. Paired with gorgeous glam from Angelica Global Beauty, she was the vision of a timeless bride!
Armenian wedding traditions start before the ceremony
In Armenian weddings, the groom’s family gifts the bride with her accessories (shoes, veil, perfume, bag) brought to the bridal room with music and dancing. Harout’s entire family walked through the hotel with these gift baskets singing and dancing to the Sarah’s room.
When bride’s family receives these gifts as the two families become one in celebration. The veil is then placed on the bride by the maid of honor to symbolize love, patience, joy, happiness, and health. We love Sarah’s floral lace embroidered veil with a blusher!
As the groom takes his bride, a boy from the bride’s side (Sarah’s brother for this instance) stops them with a knife in the door. It is the best man’s duty to pay the brother and let the couple go. We’re so glad the best man paid up, so we could see these sweethearts walk down the aisle!
Desert rose Azazie bridesmaids fashion
For her gorgeous bridesmaids dresses, the bride selected the color “desert rose” from Azazie – while letting her girls pick each of their unique styles. We love mixing dress styles all in the same dreamy color!
Oceanside rose Armenian ceremony
As a true romantic, bride Sarah has always loved roses and knew she envisioned a sea of white roses to create a fairytale effect for her ceremony and reception! Native Floral Studio brought her vision to life during her Armenian ceremony. She chose the running centerpieces down the aisle to be low so as not to block the beautiful ocean views of Garza Blanca Los Cabos – an especially gorgeous touch!
The lavish florals were reminiscent of Harout’s proposal to Sarah! He proposed to her at her favorite sushi restaurant, as the couple are huge sushi fanatics. When they arrived for dinner, Sarah was led to a private room full of flowers and candles where she was stunned by Harout beaming a smile on one knee. Their whole family joined them for a night of decadent sushi and admiring her new ring!
The couple’s Armenian wedding was officiated by the bride’s close uncle, creating a personal and intimate ceremony.
A prominent Armenian tradition that the bride and groom included in their ceremony was being crowned while a cross is held over their heads in prayer. This tradition symbolizes that the couple is now the “king and queen” of their own family.

Timeless white and gold accented reception
The one word that was most important to the bride and groom wedding aesthetic: timeless. Every part of their design by The Cabo Wedding Co radiated their classically elegant style, with an all-white color palette with subtle gold accents. The couple brought their love of chandeliers into the reception space!
We love the elegant curved menus and modern table numbers from Minted. The guests enjoyed a delicious three course meal, paired with a signature black mojito and passionfruit margarita cocktails.
Pyrotechnics for a dazzling first dance & finale
We are obsessed with the trend of fireworks for a wedding finale! Sarah and Harout included two types of pyrotechnics with a cold sparkler first dance followed by colorful epic fireworks by Cabo Fireworks Company over the ocean. The fireworks were definitely the most magical moment for the couple!
We love how this reflective dance floor created an endless starlight effect – incredibly romantic for the first dance to music by DJAY Co. As the grand fireworks finale went off, the saxophone played a heartwarming rendition of “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”.
Congratulations Sarah and Harout! Check out the full gallery of images by Allan Carrazco to see even more traditional and luxurious moments from their day.
