Jessica and William

This past November, one of our all-time favorite couples, Jessica and William, became Mr. and Mrs. Womack, tying the knot in a lavish ceremony at the very exclusive Waldorf Astoria in Cabo San Lucas. Nestled cliffside where the rolling Sea of Cortez meets the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean, the properties location is the perfect metaphor for the joining of kindred spirits, and Jessica and William are all that and more. 

This pair of fishing fanatics, along with their very attentive wedding planner Pamela Suffo, chose to calm pre-ceremony nerves by incorporating a “first look” into their wedding timeline, and what a first look it was. William’s eyes shed the happiest of tears as he turned to meet his bride, Jessica looking radiant in white lace, off the shoulder boho-inspired sleeves and a Cathedral length veil, her fresh and fabulous hair and makeup courtesy of the very talented Suzanne Morel. Our bevy of bridesmaids upped the ante in electric blue gowns that were just the right combination of up-scale elegance and Cabo fun, while William’s boys looked sharp in light grey. Put simply, it was one good-looking bridal party, and we were ready to go. 

Come ceremony time, the excited energy was buzzing as guests took their seats in the resort’s lobby, an awe-inspiring structure decorated with an overwhelming abundance of exotic florals in shades of bright orange, pale pink and shocking fuchsia (Cabo Floral Studio, you never fail to wow us with that phalaenopsis!). The uber-talented Francisco Alatorre set the mood on his Flamenco guitar, as Minister Marco Arechiga delivered a heartwarming ceremony packed with love, laughter, and his signature jokes. Minister Marco has a knack for putting people at ease, drawing laughter and inspiring tears, all of which were hallmarks of Jess and William’s ceremony.

It’s hard to pick our favorite moment when it comes to Jessica and William, but their very touching dances with Dad and Mom took our breath away. After toasts from loved ones, and those very special dances, DJ Teeven amped it up with a mix of old and new that had young and old on the dance floor until the wee hours. Superbly attended to by the hotel’s award-winning banquet staff, and drink after drink in hand, Jessica, William and their closest peeps celebrated love like only fishing fanatics know-how – on the dance floor! 

A very special thank you to Photo by Julieta, with whom it is always a pleasure to share the stage. Jessica and William, we wish you a lifetime of love, happiness and more than the occasional trip to Cabo! Thank you for trusting us with your fondest memories.  

Veronica and Patrizio’s Wedding at Esperanza Resort, Cabo San Lucas

We thank the cinematography gods day in day out for blessing us with a thriving wedding industry, brilliant sunshine and, well, the perfect conditions in which to do what we do. Wedding after wedding we are swept up in the magic and romance that surrounds our couples, spurring our creative energy and resulting in wedding films we are truly proud to call our own. Veronica and Patrizio’s extraordinary celebration of love was no exception, reminding us of childhood fairytales, warm family reunions and the electrifying excitement of endless possibilities. 

This was not the first, but the second time Veronica and Patrizio have tied the knot, first marrying each other a whopping 15 years ago. After a decade and a half of love, laughter, and happiness, they decided to go for it again, inviting a lucky bunch of their nearest and dearest to witness the renewal of their vows in sunny Los Cabos. Contrary to the smaller, elopement-style vow renewals we are accustomed to, V + P decided to go big or go home, kicking things off with a traditional Catholic ceremony at the ornate Mision de San Jose del Cabo Church, nestled in the artistic heart of San Jose del Cabo. Amongst the soaring white ceilings and gilded adornments, SmartMusic’s mariachi welcomed guests with a subdued soundtrack of more traditional string elements, before our bridal party made their long-awaited entrance in shades of barely-there nude, dusty pink and classic grey.  There were tears of joy and more than a few jaws on the floor as Veronica walked the aisle a few moments later, dressed in a stunning mermaid style gown embellished with lace and beading, hair and makeup courtesy of Neysa Berman and Blanc Bridal Salon. As guests dried their eyes, the couple sealed their renewed commitment with a kiss, and it was time to kick the party into full gear.

Back at the world famous Esperanza, An Auberge Resort, guitarist Adan Mijares greeted guests with some of our favorite covers, as the hotel’s waitstaff served bite-sized eats and premium cocktails. Event designer Elena Damy‘s attention to detail was evident from the get-go, with each and every aesthetic outcome considered and planned to perfection. We especially loved the entrance table, which welcomed guests with tiny, red glass hearts personalized with their name and table number, as well as the crisp white dinner tables and lush floral centerpieces. We were treated to an energetic mariachi performance during dinner, the toe tapping and head nodding transitioning quickly into a packed dance floor as DJ Adan Mijares took the decks. With delicious food, bottomless glasses, and first-rate music throughout, V + P’s evening was a heady whirlwind of fun and frivolity. Not a moment of the antics went unrecorded, as the fast-on-his-feet photographer Josafat de la Toba and his team joined us in capturing the madness.

Thank you, Veronica and Patrizio, for renewing your vows with panache. We can’t wait for round three!
