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.
