18 Sep Valerie + Shaun | 08.18.18 | Prince Waikiki | Co-Cathedral St. Theresa | The Plaza Club
Valerie + Shaun began their day getting ready at the Prince Waikiki. Shaun was helped in to his suit by his brother/best man and Valerie slipped in to a lace white gown with a crystal belt. From there it was time to make our way to the church where a traditional Filipino wedding ceremony awaited them. One of the traditions performed was the veil and chord which symbolizes that the couple is dressed for the world as one. After their first kiss as husband and wife it was picture taking time! We hung around at the church for a bit capturing the beautiful stain glass windows and architecture. The post office and judiciary building were our next stops where we captured their wedding party photos and a few of them. Out last stop for photos was Hawaii Theatre, a place special to Valerie’s heart. Her hula halau holds their ho’ike there–an event where members of the halau perform all they learned that year, so she was really excited to get it in her wedding photos. Now it was reception time so we made our way to The Plaza club where turquoise and purple accents adorned the room. They met back in X-ray school so the Precious Moments X-ray cake topper was the perfect personal touch! They enjoyed their first dance, speeches, and Valerie even danced a special hula for Shaun.
