We are so excited to share Gellie and Ronnie’s Oahu beach wedding! The sun-kissed beaches, the gentle ocean breeze, and the enchanting beauty of the island made it a perfect destination for our high school sweethearts to tie the knot. Gellie and Ronnie realized this dream as they exchanged vows on the picturesque shores of the island’s east side. They chose an Oahu wedding because they’ve always wanted to do a beach wedding, but it wasn’t possible for a church wedding in the Philippines in 2024. But they were already planning on doing a civil wedding anyway, and they were already going on a family trip to Hawaii. So they thought since they would already be in Oahu with their family, why not get married there?! Brilliant idea! They will also be able to hold their church wedding next year too!
Gellie and Ronnie were head over heels in love, and their wedding day celebrated their deep bond. With anticipation and excitement in their hearts, they eagerly awaited this beautiful day; they absolutely LOVE the beach!
Surrounded by their closest family and friends, the atmosphere was filled with pure joy. Everyone present felt incredibly blessed to witness and be a part of Gellie and Ronnie’s special moment. Love was in the air and in the ocean breeze, as you’ll see below!
Ronnie and Gellie’s love story began in the most unexpected of places – their senior year honors arts class. It was Gellie’s favorite class, her sanctuary amidst the chaos of high school. Little did they know that their paths would intertwine in a way that would change their lives forever.
Although they didn’t know each other well at first, Ronnie and Gellie found themselves engaging in casual conversations from time to time. But it wasn’t until a year after high school, about 13 years ago, that their friendship blossomed into something more. On August 22, 2010, they officially became a couple, marking the beginning of a beautiful journey together.
Their love story took an enchanting turn when, exactly 12 years later, on August 22, 2022, during a vacation in the Philippines, Ronnie decided to take their relationship to the next level. It was a magical moment, almost midnight, by the shimmering waters of a beach. With the stars as witnesses, Ronnie got down on one knee and proposed to Gellie, sealing their love for a lifetime!
Kualoa Regional Park Beach provided an exquisite backdrop for their wedding ceremony! With the ocean waves gently crashing against the shore, Gellie and Ronnie stood hand in hand, ready to embark on this incredible adventure as husband and wife. The setting was nothing short of magical, capturing the essence of their love.
Everyone arrived in the best of spirits, dressed in pristine white attire! Ronnie and Gellie included traditional Cambodian and Filipino elements in their elegant wedding attire too! The purity and simplicity of their outfits perfectly complemented the natural beauty surrounding them. It was a sight to behold, a sea of white against the vibrant blue of the ocean and the sandy shore.
As they exchanged their heartfelt vows, there was so much joy in everyone’s hearts and smiles. Their love spilled over, touching the hearts of everyone present at their wedding. We are so happy this family vacation turned out to be the perfect opportunity for an Oahu beach wedding!
After their sweet oceanside ceremony, our newlyweds were ready to catch a moment alone and bask in the romance of the moment.
Gellie and Ronnie truly looked like a match made in heaven on their special day. Gellie adorned a stunning haku flower crown, carefully crafted with vibrant blooms that perfectly complemented her natural beauty. The tropical crown added an extra touch of elegance to her look, making her radiate with an ethereal glow!
As they stood together, hand in hand, their love shone brightly, illuminating the entire beach. The warm sunlight danced upon their faces, highlighting their smiles and the sparkle in their eyes. It was as if the universe itself conspired to showcase their love in the most enchanting morning light, with the ocean glittering in the distance!
Congratulations to these two love birds! We hope you had a fantastic day! May you continue to have many more beautiful years ahead!
