Real Wedding — Abigail + Dominique

Updated: May 20

Abigail and Dominque exchanged vows amidst the lush grounds of Quinta Mazatlan in McAllen, Texas, embracing the beauty of a springtime celebration. The venue's natural charm provided a picturesque backdrop, accentuated by the abundant sunlight filtering through glass windows and doors, creating unforgettable moments.

The Details

Abigail and Dominique exchanged vows on a pleasantly warm spring day at Quinta Mazatlan Birding Center in Mcallen, Texas, surrounded by the venue's historic charm and welcoming grounds. From the delicate fragrance of her favorite perfume to the timeless elegance of their wedding rings engraved with 'love is patient,' every detail of Abigail and Dominique's special day exuded romance. Each detail, smile, tear, and cherished memory was captured by the talented lens of Ilse of Ilse Salinas Photography. 

The "I Do"

There's absolutely no other way to cherish the most significant moment of your life than standing hand in hand, exchanging vows in front of cherished friends and adoring family. With hearts full of love and eyes filled with tears of joy, it's a beautiful testament to the bonds of love and the promise of a lifetime together.

The Celebration

The moment Abigail mentioned 'simplified wooden chic,' I was completely sold. Abigail and Dominique flawlessly captured the upscale ambiance of Quinta Mazatlan with their wedding decor, infusing gentle wooded undertones throughout. Southern Roots Flower Market brought their vision to life with an array of sage and olive green, rust, terracotta, pink, neutrals, and gold accent flowers, creating a chic and nature-inspired celebration that perfectly blended rustic charm with elegant sophistication.

The Cake

Abigail and Dominique's wedding cake was a vision of elegance and sophistication. With a smooth buttercream exterior expertly adorned with delicate buttercream flowers created using the palette knife technique, the cake exuded timeless beauty. Gold dragees added a touch of opulence, while subtle gold brush accents throughout the piping added an extra layer of refinement. Elevated on a chic all-gold plinth cake stand from Prop Options, the cake stood as a stunning centerpiece, capturing the essence of their special day with grace and style.

Abigail and Dominique's wedding cake featured our timeless spice-infused Carrot Cake, perfectly complemented by the creamy richness of our Vanilla Bean Buttercream filling, as well as our indulgent Chocolate Cake paired with our velvety sweet Vanilla Bean Buttercream. Both are elegantly finished with a velvety coating of French Buttercream icing.

I can't help but smile whenever I reflect on Abigail and Dominque's wedding day. You both were an absolute delight to design for, and I can't thank you enough for embracing every idea with openness and enthusiasm! Your chic, nature-centered wedding with a hint of rustic charm was nothing short of magical, and I am honored to have been a part of bringing your cake vision to life. Thank you for trusting me with such an important aspect of your special day and for sharing all of the beautiful memories. Cheers to a lifetime of love and happiness!
