Luxury Destination Wedding in Cabo San Lucas

March 3, 2017

We recently had the pleasure of photographing this luxury destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas of Maria and Kyle. Escaping the cold of our beloved Boston for the sunny Esperanza resort in Cabo was a more than welcome change. Maria and Kyle’s destination wedding was a three-day celebration. We knew we were in for a treat when we learned the save-the-dates came with mini-piñatas. Guests got the full Cabo San Lucas experience in style including a fishing tournament, Superbowl Sunday party and a Welcome event to greet guests. Jill Person also captured Maria and Kyle’s engagement session while on a pristine and private beach and throughout the resort. Beautiful backdrops in every location.

The day of the wedding begins with a quintessential Cabo day with the bride gathered together with her wedding party. The gentlemen were likewise gathered, enjoying each other’s company while putting on their finishing touches. The bride wore a strapless gown in white while the groom wore a crisp tux. Both were timeless and a perfect complement to each other and the setting. Afterward, we took the time to capture family and wedding party photos before making our way over the beautiful ceremony location.

Steps from the ocean, Maria and Kyle had a personal and heartfelt wedding ceremony. The priest who officiated the nuptials traveled from Germany where Maria’s family is from. Especially beautiful, the bride’s brother composed a special piece of music created just for their wedding ceremony. Immediately following the ceremony, guests made their way to a fun and festive cocktail hour complete with mariachi band. While guests enjoyed local food, they also had the unique experience at the photobooth as they got the opportunity to pose next to an adorable donkey.

Nestled in the stone walls of the resort with panoramic ocean views the reception locale was grand. While the sun was setting, introductions and thoughtful toasts led into dinner and a sprawling dessert station. Maria and Kyle’s first dance ended with surprise fireworks  – a special gift for the bride from her groom. The celebrating continued as the newlyweds danced into the evening, enjoying themselves alongside their loved ones. Congratulations again, Maria and Kyle and thank you for including Jill Person Photography in this beautiful destination wedding.

We also want to thank Nicole and her team at Simeral & Co for their expert planning and execution of this luxury destination wedding in Cabo San Lucus and Linda Mitchell over at Luxury Destination Travel for making our travel arrangement effortless.
