Don Omar and Jackie Guerrido are now officially husband and wife. The Puerto Rican newlyweds tied the knot April 19 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Isla Verde, Puerto Rico. And as was expected, the lovebirds spared no expense to have the fairytale wedding they’d been dreaming about.
According to Puerto Rican newspaper Última hora, the festivities began around 6:50 p.m., when 30-year-old William Landrón – dressed in a black suit, white shirt and tie, and his braidless hair pulled back – took his place at the altar on the terrace of the hotel ballroom, where he waited for 10 minutes for his bride to appear. Around 7:00 p.m., Guerrido, 35, arrived in a gorgeous Luis Antonio strapless gown adorned with French lace and pearls, and carrying lilac-colored orchids. The bride’s son, 18-year-old Tomás Ramírez, gave the bride away. Landrón and Guerrido kissed and hugged when they met each other at the altar.
The ceremony lasted only 10 minutes, and was presided over by Reverend Bobby Cruz, who, upon declaring them husband and wife, said, “Now you can kiss each other. This is the one that counts,” which sparked laughter and applause among the attendants. The event was sponsored by the reggaeton star’s brother Luis Landrón, and Univisión weather presenter’s sister María Guerrido. Guerrido’s daughter, 17-year-old Adieny Núñez was the maid of honor, while the groom’s sons, 6-year-old Daniel and 2-year-old Dereck, stood by their father on the important occasion.
The menu featured a variety of appetizers, followed by main courses, including steak, lobster and truffle risotto. The 14-piece violin group Violines de San Juan added ambience to the dinner with beautiful music.
Among the guests at the wedding were reggaeton singers Ivy Queen, Eliel, Tito “El Bambino, Tego Calderón, RKM y Ken Y, actress Adriana Fonseca, fashion guru Rodner Figueroa, TV personalities Don Francisco, Raúl de Molina, Ana María Canseco, Tony Dandrades, Neida Sandoval, Giselle Blondet, Bárbara Bermudo, Rafael José, Fernando del Rincón and his wife, Carmen Dominicci. For the sake of security, all of the guests had to pass through an X-ray scanner to assure that no one tried to bring pens, cameras or cell phones into the A-list event.
Don Francisco gave a spirited champagne toast at the reception that lasted until 5:00 a.m. (the newlyweds slipped out around 4 a.m.). Gilberto Santa Rosa and merengue group Karis livened up the bash with music that got guests on their feet.
According to newspaper El Nuevo Día, at noon on Sunday, the newlyweds had a brunch for guests, who were all dressed in white, on the hotel terrace. Even though Guerrido and Don Omar were supposed to head off to Dubai for their honeymoon, they had to postpone that trip because of professional obligations, and instead spent a few days on a Caribbean island.
