A newlywed couple based in Los Angeles is sharing tantalizing travel details of their destination wedding in 2024. 

Misaki and Amir Hajimirsadeghi were married this April in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, after knowing each other for 11 years. 

The pair, who met while studying at the University of California, got engaged in Dec. 2022 and started debating where they wanted to get married, as SWNS reported. 

FOUR TIPS FOR PLANNING A DESTINATION WEDDING

The couple apparently wanted a wedding where they could have all the people they loved in one place — while also choosing to spend their money “in a smart way.”

With a $100,000 budget, the couple booked the Nobu Hotel in Mexico and invited 75 guests to attend the “vacation” weekend.

Misaki Hajimirsadeghi, who works in finance, told SWNS, “It was the best vacation. I had all my friends and my family with us — when can you ever do that?”

She also said, “It was the most perfect day.”

The couple reported they didn’t end up spending all that they’d budgeted for the wedding, but that their final bill came to just over $80,000. 

“The intention was not to have an expensive wedding, [but] it was to be a more affordable one,” Misaki Hajimirsadeghi said.

Cabo San Lucas, or Los Cabos, is “the capes” in Spanish — hinting at its secluded coves off the coast, per Visit Los Cabos. 

The spot in Mexico is also recognizable for its arch at the natural landmark at “Land’s End,” where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean, as Visit Los Cabos noted.
