Jackson Cooper Merger: Destination Wedding in Cabo Mexico

Dec 3, 2016

Felicidades! It’s time to celebrate Heather and Dion’s wedding in Cabo at the beautiful Hacienda Encantada Resort with all their friends and family! The night before their beautiful wedding they treated their loved ones to a fabulous jaunt on a private yacht, a perfect warmup for their incredible day! I loved being able to photograph all aspects of their marriage celebrations, from their intimate legal ceremony in Greenwich Village to the coastal vow exchange in Cabo San Lucas!

Heather’s dress could not have been more gorgeous or more perfect for HER! It is by Vera Wang, and her lovely shoes are Badgley Mischka. I loved seeing true NYC couture in Mexico!

We were treated to an absolutely picture perfect day, with blue skies and warm balmy weather.

The lovely bridesmaids – Heather’s sister and her two best friends – flew all the way from Michigan. They were so supportive and wonderful; perfect bridesmaids who doted and cheered on Heather.

Dion has such great style, and I LOVED the little accessories he picked out for his big day! The Tiffany & Co. airplane cufflinks were so unique and classic, and his flamingo socks and Gucci loafers perfectly fit his personality.

Can we talk about his bespoke suit?! LOVE!

Dion’s groomsmen – his brother and best friend – were the coolest dudes, helping Dion to stay calm, cool and collected. They were so fun!

Dion asked me to bring a special gift back to Heather’s bridal suite. I was so excited for her as she opened up a Cartier Love Bracelet! Her smile says it all!

I absolutely loved capturing this moment when her Aunt Carol walked into the bridal suite to see Heather all dressed up and ready for her wedding. Such a sweet moment!

The ceremony took place on the beach at the resort, with the waves crashing behind us. A little slice of heaven!

Heather and Dion exchanged their beautiful vows in front of all of their loved ones with the sun shining down on them. It could not have been more perfect!

One of my favorite photos from the day…

Time for Dion to fasten the Love Bracelet onto Heather’s wrist…

Every detail of the reception was perfection; I loved the named maracas to direct the guests to their tables!

Gorgeous table setups!

I always love the father/daughter and mother/son dances!

When the fireworks display began, everyone broke into applause and the dancing REALLY got started!

Such a spectacular wedding celebration of Heather and Dion’s marriage! I am so honored to have been a part of it, to photograph it all, from New York to Mexico! Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your celebrations, Mr. and Mrs. Cooper! I look forward to continuing to photograph your family as it grows 🙂
