Stacy Beth Soefer and Luis Fernando Gomar
Magic in Mexico
Stacy, a Brand Consultant met attorney Luis Gomar while whitewater Rafting on the Colorado River. It was love at first paddle! Luis proposed at sunset overlooking the ocean at the St. Regis in Punta Mita, Mexico. It is such a special place for the couple, they wanted to share it with their friends.
The rehearsal dinner was so elaborate it could’ve been a wedding reception. With the ocean waves setting the stage, friends and family enjoyed a traditional Mexican beach bar-be-cue.
“We LOVE Mexico and got engaged at the nearby St. Regis Punta Mita. Martoca was the perfect blend of rustic beach chic we were looking for,” says Stacy.
The wedding location took top billing as guests were bused to a secret location: Martoca Beach Garden, Bucerias MX. Nestled into the hillside, this picturesque Spanish Hacienda transported guests back in time.
The traditional Jewish ceremony took place on the beach as the sun set over the ocean. The bride wore a gown from BHLDN which was re-imagined by Houston designer Chloe Dao. As soon as passed appetizers and drinks were enjoyed, the live band stole the show.
“My favorite part of the party was our crystal LED dance floor—it really elevated the décor and party vibe,” says the bride. Party goers danced all night. In addition to the videographer, a drone captured aerial footage of the entire ceremony and reception. This added dimension and perspective to the wedding video. And who needs cake when a local street vendor will make churros on site? The following day, guests were treated to a farewell champagne brunch.
