A Modern Wedding at a Treehouse Resort

A wildly creative couple apply their design skills and create an oh-so-chic, intimate wedding at a treehouse resort in San Jose del Cabo.


“A key element for us was the resort's amazing tiled courtyard, which made for the perfect dining setting and an even better dance floor!” says Gina Gutierrez, founder & principal designer at Gina Rachelle Design. "We layered in soft colors along with modern touches like Eames chairs and hand-lettered tile place settings."

The  couple designed their wooden ceremony backdrop based on Gina’s wedding ring, then the planning team at Bliss Events hired a local carpenter to execute the project.

Each place setting had guest favors: bundles of crystals and wood (with healing properties) wrapped in leather by the groom, Max; bride Gina hand-lettered each tile place card.
