The traditional wedding cake, a majestic seven-tiered confection with exquisite ruffle detailing, was crowned with a gold "S" and "J" topper in honor of their initials. 

Alongside this, the Dairy Queen cake served as the "groom's cake," a request from Owens himself.

In a heartwarming Instagram video shared in March, the couple were seen practicing their cake cutting skills, preparing for the big day. Simone’s wedding recap confirms that their trial run paid off. 

The couple were seen dancing and celebrating in front of their beautifully designed cakes, with Simone humorously noting: "We cut the cake & we were cuttin up."

The ceremony took place on the Umi Terrace of the Nobu Los Cabos, complete with a live cellist performance.

Simone dazzled in four different outfits throughout the day, including a custom version of Galia Lahav's Gimaya gown. 

The petite gymnast admitted that she initially had concerns about wearing a ball gown, but the dress turned out to be the perfect choice, complete with a leg slit to add the illusion of length to her frame.

However, the "most magical" moment, was when whales unexpectedly leapt from the water during the ceremony. "Whales were jumping out of the water as our ceremony started," she explained. 

"Whale season is over, by the way. It sprinkled for two minutes after we got married—which is good luck!—and we had a full moon. It was truly the most magical!"

Despite the whirlwind of joy, Simone confessed: "I'm so sad it's all over. I want to do it again. We had the best night of our lives. It was a 12 out of 10!"
