Broc and Lila’s wedding was truly a dream. After both attending the same high school, they both left the island of Saipan for Hawaii to start their life together. Shortly after, these two made the move to San Diego where they truly fell in love.
They were away for nearly ten years living their lives in the big city when they decided to visit their family and friends on island. While on their vacation, Broc got down on one knee to ask Lila to be his, with friends and family surrounding them and cheering them on.
And the rest was history.
Personalized gifts for your bridal party are always a must! I love the personalized flasks for the groomsmen that they carried with them all day.
Broc and Lila chose their colors to be Navy and Blush. Every detail was within their color scheme, right down to the groom and groomsmen awesome socks!
Getting ready at separate venues is a must when you’re wanting to wait until the ceremony for your groom to see you in your gown!
The custom made flower girl dresses by Pena House Boutique and Salon were absolutely stunning!
The connection between Lila and her niece was so heartwarming!
The Christmas trees from the church were such a great nod to the holiday season around them, and the lights made the love even more magical!
Officially husband and wife!
Broc and Lila chose to have their bridal portraits at Sugar King Park. One of my absolute favorite locations to shoot on Saipan, as the light is always so dreamy!
Champagne wars! Who do you think opened the bottle better – Team Bride or Team Groom?
And now the party begins!
Sit down dinners are very unique in Saipan, but I have to say it adds some class to your reception! And check out that flower wall! Isn’t it to die for?!
I always get super sappy when it comes to the toasts. Friends and family taking time to write and speak their love and excitement for the bride and groom are so tear-jerking. And then if you follow it up with the first dance I’ll be crying all night.
What a night this truly was! Thank you so much to Broc and Lila for trusting in me to document your big day! And a huge thank you to all of the vendors involved!
