Nene + Omar | Cabo San Lucas Mexico

"If you love something enough you set it free... if it is meant to be, it will come back to you"

I love Love LOVE Omar and Nene's story!

Here's a quick narration...

Omar was Nene's first kiss when she was 15.
Omar broke up with Nene when he went to college because he wanted to be young... and you know... a college boy ;)
Nene was heartbroken but quite mature. She wrote him a 10 page letter (that Omar kept all these years) and in it mentioned the above quote.
Both lost touch for many years. Omar married and had a beautiful daughter, Nene dated other men and took of the world with her awesomeness.
8 years later a newly single Omar saw Nene's mom's name on a realtor roster (they are both brokers) and decided to send along a little hello.
Nene's mom forgot all about the email until 3 months later.... she passed along the information to her daughter and the two High School sweethearts were reunited.
Only problem was... Omar was still going through his young single stage and wasn't ready to commit even though Nene was head over heels....again ;) A year or two pass in this "friendship only" limbo and it was only when faced with the possibility of losing Nene did Omar wake up and realize what he wanted all along was right in front of him. And oh boy did she make him work his little @$$ off to get her back. Its quite the fabulous story and quite more involved than what I just narrated... but this story has a happy ending. :)

RIght before leaving for Mexico to shoot the wedding I spoke with Nene about how excited I was for her... I told her how awesome it was after all these years that she would be marrying her first kiss. She said loved that he was not only her first but her LAST kiss as well. :) (insert sappy girly 'awww' here)

without further adieu.... may I present the wonderful wedding of Nene + Omar...

Omar sent his best man over with a wedding gift for Nene.

I loved this image. Nene was sobbing after receiving all her gifts.. she kept saying she couldn't understand why she deserved someone so amazing. :)

Recognize the Officiant? That's Jason. I shot Jason and Karla's wedding in Cancun two summers ago... Karla is Omar's sister. :)

Another surprise for Nene.... Omar ordered fireworks!
