This Engagement Shoot Is What Love Looks Like

See these smiles? Yeah, that’s real. That’s genuine joy right there if I do say so myself and I can’t get enough of it. Dana Fernandez is my hero today, capturing these cuties in Cabo; if you’re in need of a mood boost, head right over to our Vault and you will not be disappointed.

From the Bride-to-be… We chose to do our engagement shoot in Cabo to capture our love for the beach and travel. Matthew and I have been to Cabo a handful of times together starting early on in our relationship. It is a very meaningful place for us where we have shared many fond memories and will continue to do so. To further emphasize our love of exploring the world together, Matthew is wearing a pair of shoes we got on a trip to Germany. We also love getting dressed up so we went all out with a suit and gown. Taking the photos was paired with a weekend spent in Cabo with both of our parents and Matthew’s aunt, Dana (the photographer ), which made it truly unforgettable!

From The Bride…Lee and I share a passion for traveling and after our engagement in Barcelona, we knew we wanted our wedding to be a vacation destination for our guests where we could spend the days leading up to our wedding with our closest friends and family. The moment Lee and I stepped into the stunning lobby of the St. Regis Punta Mita Resort, we knew that we had found our wedding venue. From the lush tropical greenery, white sand beaches and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean we knew it would be the perfect backdrop for our “I dos.”

We envisioned a romantic and elegant wedding with a timeless color palette and every detail of our wedding weekend to be a reflection of us. Walking into our reception as we were introduced for the first time truly took my breath away. Fountain style sparklers lit up around the dance floor as we danced to “You Are the Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne. One of my favorite memories from our reception was looking around and noticing not one seat was occupied because all of our guests were living in the moment with us on the dance floor, made my night complete. I had been told that the evening would fly by, and I can remember taking pause a couple times throughout the night wishing I could freeze time so I could soak it in and relish in the incredible dream we were living. Being surrounded by our closest family and friends in the most gorgeous setting I have ever seen in my life, was truly magical.

From Brilliant Event PlanningJessica and Jack truly wanted to give their guests an experience – not just a wedding day. To make this a reality, they took over Belmond Maroma! Since they had exclusive use of the property, they were able to have many days of events and activities. They had an Authentic Tequila Tasting Cantina night, a Fiesta Blanca (Mexican themed white party!), as well as yoga, bike trips, and more. However, the best part of having the hotel to ourselves was the fact that we could do the reception in the exquisite front entrance to the property, which meant dinner and dancing under the stars in the jungle!

Belmond Maroma used to be someone’s home before it was a hotel and still feels like that today. To compliment this, we tapped into an authentic and traditional Mexican style wherever possible. The escort cards were handmade pottery, Ottomi patterns were incorporated into the white party, entertainers ranged from mariachi to flamenco dancers, and the welcome bags included worry dolls for guests to ensure they started relaxing from the moment they arrived! Even the ceremony was filled with tradition. Jessica and Jack opted for a Mayan Ceremony, which is performed by a shaman. Guests got their auras cleansed upon arrival and Jessica and Jack made an offering to the ocean during the ceremony.

After witnessing Jessica and Jack be pronounced husband and wife, guests made their way to the reception by candlelight. For table decor, gold band charger were alternated with gold beaded and each guest found their seat by looking for their custom menu with their name. The entire space smelled of roses and eucalyptus, thanks to the lush table runner! The band was the most important thing to Jack, so we flew The Social from Miami and they kept guests on the dance floor all night long!

The entire wedding weekend exploded with personal touches, including a custom sign that showed the distance to all of the places that Jessica and Jack have visited and loved. The bar, which is normally “Freddy’s bar” was even renamed as Jack and Freddy’s bar for the occasion!

Fun fact: On the morning of the wedding, it was threatening to rain. So, at the advice of one of the locals, we followed an old Mayan tradition that says if you put crossed knives into the ground, you will ward off the rain…and it worked! We had beautiful weather the entire day and ended the night with a bonfire and s’mores on the beach!
