Romina + Marc

wedgewood sequoia mansion wedding

Happily Ever after:

Romina and Marc got married on a warm summer day, on their 10th anniversary! If you knew these two, then you’d know immediately that their wedding would have to include: the color pink, Disney motifs, and Filipino traditions. Needless to say, their wedding was extremely true to them.

Romina and Marc started their day getting ready at an Airbnb with separate rooms for the groomsmen and bridesmaids. They opted to not have a first look together. However, Romina wanted to have a first look with her parents and bridemaids. As a long time friend of Romina, it felt incredibly special to not just be in the room, but to hold the responsbility of capturing such an intimate moment with her parents. 

Upon arrival to Sequoia Mansion, friends and family from all over filled the mansion to look at all the precious Disney-themed motifs. From using the famous Disney font, to recreating the Adventure Book and mailbox from Pixar’s Up, you couldn’t help but feel the magic in the air. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t tear up hearing, “I See the Light” from Tangled while watching my friend walk down the aisle. Their ceremony blended Western and Filipino traditions, such as gifting Arras (coins) to manifest prosperity in their marriage and performing community vows. 

The reception was just as incredible. I have to mention that their seating chart was a giant story book, and every table included a vintage-style Disney picture book in lieu of numbers. Their reception included a reverse table visit, first dances, money dance, garter toss, bouquet toss, and a photo booth! To end the night, they were sent off with bubble guns!

This wedding was truly unique and very much how I would describe Romina and Marc: lively, community-oriented, and full of magic! And so they lived… happily ever after!
