Christine + James' Wedding

Christinejames feat

Photographer Megan Moura captured Christine + James’ wedding in paradise so beautifully, making this Wedding Wednesday feature extra-special.

Another sweet surprise? A word from both the bride and groom!

Christine, the bride, explained their love for Hawaii: Hawaii holds a special place in our hearts. It’s the first big trip we took together as a couple when we started dating eight years ago. James also proposed to me in Oahu in Lanikai Beach, so it was a no-brainer that we had to have our wedding in Hawaii, a place that we love, with those we love most.

"We knew we wanted to incorporate our Filipino heritage into the ceremony with the Veil, Cord and Coins ceremony traditions. The Veil symbolizes the oneness of marriage, the Cord symbolizes the unbreakable bond of marriage, and the Coins symbolizes our mutual prosperity. My favorite memory was reading our personalized vows to each other. It was emotional for the both of us, and there were many laughs and tears. I’ll never forget how special that was.

James described his favorite memory as being led back into the house to have a minute (and a cocktail) alone with Christine. "We were soaking in our first moments as husband and wife and little did we know, our photographer, gathered all our family and friends to take a big group picture. Once we stepped out of the house, we were surprised to hear cheers from everyone as we came to join them to take a big group picture. It was a special moment to see everyone that we love cheering us on."

We love when our brides (and grooms) describe what made their day so special and unique! Thank you to Christine + James for such a lovely Wedding Wednesday feature. While Christine’s classic strapless gown was an Allure one of kind, click here for something similar!
