11 Dec Stephanie + Romeo | 11.11.18 | Hyatt Regency Waikiki
Stephanie + Romeo began their wedding day at Stephanie’s childhood home for a Chinese Tea Ceremony with each of their families. Stephanie wore a traditional Chinese Cheongsam for this and Romeo kept it cultural to his own ethnicity by wearing a Filipino barong. Stephanie’s grandma was able to be there and perform the tea ceremony with them but wouldn’t be able to attend their American style ceremony later that day so we made sure to capture lots of photos with her and we even went to the Honolulu Country Club to capture more family photos of them. From there we all made our way to the Hyatt Regency Waikiki where the rest of the festivities of the day would take place. Stephanie got in to a stunning lace topped gown with the assistance of her bridesmaids dressed in blush pink. A couple floors away Romeo was helped in to his suit by his groomsmen. They prepared for their first look and Romeo stood at the bottom of the staircase with his hands over his eyes awaiting his lovely bride. The huge smile that spread across his face as he looked at Stephanie was sweet to see! They had an outdoor ceremony full of laughter from everyone and as they kissed for the first time as husband and wife Romeo threw up a fist pump and everyone cheered! They slipped away for some sunset photos before entering a gorgeous blush pink reception where they enjoyed incredible performances from multiple friends and family members and laughed along to some hilarious speeches!
