Over the years, the splashing waves of the Sea of Cortez has applauded its approval as a number of notables have said “I do” on the sandy shore at the One & Only Palmilla resort. In 2006, a Buddhist monk joined actor Oliver Hudson and actress Erinn Bartlett in matrimony, while in 2007 Fantastic Four star Ioan Gruffudd chose the locale to pledge his eternal devotion to actress Alice Evans. On April 19, 2008, it was New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning whose heart pounded like the rolling surf as he exchanged vows with Abby McGrew.
According to the New York Daily News, six bridesmaids in strapless, champagne-hued creations walked toward the altar before the sounds of a guitar, violin and cello heralded the arrival of the bride, who clutched a bouquet of white roses as she strolled past in a strapless, lace-accented wedding dress designed with a short train which gently brushed the white aisle runner that led her to the groom, who had donned a khaki suit for the occasion. Taking their places on a flower-bedecked platform, the sun began to make its descent as the couple were united in a 16-minute ceremony.
A place where they have created romantic memories in the past, the couple chose the One & Only Palmilla resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico not only for their destination “I do,” but also for their honeymoon. After returning to reality, the newlyweds will be busy writing thank you notes for the Juliska ice blue scalloped serving bowl and Graham footed goblets listed on their Neiman Marcus wedding registry and the Riedel Vinum Bordeaux glasses purchased from their registry at Williams-Sonoma.
