A Relaxing, Ocean-Front Wedding in Cabo
Megan and Jeremy
Megan Sherrod (a photographer) and Jeremy Anderson (a lawyer) met in a Dallas restaurant in the fall of 2009—an appropriate "how we met" story for a Texas-based couple. Fast-forward four years, and the couple found themselves on the beaches of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where Jeremy popped the question on the last night of their vacation.
It only seemed right to continue their fairytale on the same sand as where Megan said "yes." So the couple tied the knot on April 19, 2015, at the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Golf & Spa Resort, surrounded by 46 of their closest friends and family—including their two children, Jackson and Saylor. With a wedding vacation that began with a yoga lesson for Megan and her bridesmaids on the bridal suite's private patio, continued with beach and pool time for all, and ended with a weeklong family getaway with their kids, Megan and Jeremy's Mexican adventure could not have been more relaxing or romantic.
The ceremony and reception were held at the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Golf & Spa Resort. With gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean property was a lovely place to host a sun-kissed Cabo wedding.
Megan tried on just under a dozen dresses and chose what she thought would be "the one." But then it arrived and she realized she hated it. With only six weeks until the wedding, she called her maid of honor and drove to a bridal boutique in Lewisville, Texas, where she chose the first and only dress she tried on that day—an Enzoani lace sheath that happened to be hemmed to her exact height.
Jeremy's pale blue tie provided a pop of color against his cream-colored suit from Q Clothier.
The Bridal Bouquet
"I like how Bows and Arrows' flowers are simple, natural, and classic looking—nothing too trendy or manicured," says Megan, who chose all-white blooms. In addition to the peonies requested by the bride, bougainvillea, ranunculus, and roses were used in the bridal bouquet—all of which were locally foraged.
Something Old and Blue
Although Megan's grandmother wasn't able to attend the wedding, she embroidered a 20-year-old Irish linen handkerchief with the bride's new initials and wedding date for her to use on the big day.
Megan's maid of honor was Lauren—her best friend and the godmother to Megan and Jeremy's daughter, Saylor. Her bridesmaids included her sister, Melissa, and three of her best friends from college. Each bridesmaid wore blue or gray in the cut and style of their choice.
The groom's best friend, Connor, served as best man, while his brothers Patrick and Jason both acted as groomsmen, and his son, Jackson, was the ring bearer. Five of Jeremy's close friends also served as groomsmen—including Sean Lowe from The Bachelor, who's been friends with the groom for more than ten years.
The Ceremony Location
The processional began at the top of a large, cascading stone staircase that led down to the beach. With waves crashing up against the rocks and Megan's gorgeous, long Edward Berger veil blowing in the wind, even vacationers crowded on the upper deck to sneak a peek at the couple's wedding ceremony.
An outline of the ceremony appeared on one side of the program while members of the wedding party were printed on the other.
Following Jackson's leisurely trek down the aisle as ring bearer, Megan was led to the altar by her father to the tune of "Arioso" by Johann Sebastian Bach. During their traditional Christian ceremony, Corinthians 1:13 and Genesis 2:21–23 were read aloud.
A Happy Family
The Bachelor's Sean Lowe and his wife Catherine Giudici enjoyed drinks on the lower level of the resort's sky pool during cocktail hour as servers passed eclectic small bites, including crab cakes and sweet pea samosas.
Reception tables surrounded a dynamic light-up dance floor where many Texas-based guests excitedly two-stepped to "Friends in Low Places" by Garth Brooks under a starry Mexican sky and the warm glow of paper lanterns hung overhead.
Set on ocean blue linens from La Tavola Fine Linen, these marbled candles, surrounded by white blooms and greenery, were inspired by the couple's organic, modern taste.
The Place Settings
Each place setting included light wooden chargers and a letterpressed menu card tucked inside a white pocket-folded napkin. Because the winds were high at the coastal location, wedding planner Meggie Francisco and floral designer Alicia Rico found rocks around the venue to help keep everything in place.
The First Dance
The bride and groom chose Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" for their first dance.
