Kanepi came from a set down to topple Czech Lucie Safarova 6-7 6-4 6-3 in the second semi-final.
Cibulkova, who upset top seed Vera Zvonareva on Friday, had little trouble against Vesnina and eased into the final in just over an hour when her unseeded opponent dumped a tame smash into the net on match point.
"When you win the first set 6-0 it's easy to lose your concentration a little bit," the eighth seed told reporters.
"That's what happened to me at the start of the second set but I managed to wake up soon and finish the match."
Cibulkova added: "I know I've lost all three of my previous finals including the one last week, but I feel if I continue playing the way I do now sooner or later I'll win one."
