Last week, Sara and Dereck were wed with a beautiful Oahu beach wedding on the shore of Waimanalo. With loved ones cheering them on and the salty sprays of the ocean, this was a ceremony fit for any island dream!
Wearing a traditional silhouette with a lace halter, Sara was radiant. We loved how Dereck brought his own modern twist to the beachside groom. And the fact that their little guys matched had us smiling from ear to ear! Keep scrolling for all the sweet moments!
We often have our brides share their stories, but today we’re excited to share the words of our groom!
From our groom: “Sara and I used to hold hands while in class in middle school. We both graduated from the same middle school and high school together. We lived our own separate lives and almost a decade later ran into each other at a strawberry festival in Garden Grove California.”
“I think Sara’s mom Angela fell in love with me first and asked Sara who I was. I met her family, chatted for a little bit and we went our own ways. Shortly after, I attended a Quincenera my brothers were a part of and little did we all know Sara and her family were at this Quinceanera. We danced the night away and later that same evening went on our first date.”
“Sara jumped on the back of my motorcycle, her brother Sergio took a picture of us before we left and we had dinner at an elegant restaurant on Balboa Island. Sara loves fillet mignon, so on Angelo’s birthday Oct 26, 2019, I proposed to her at a beautiful restaurant known as the Orange hill restaurant in Orange County California while she was pregnant with Zeus. We are blessed with two handsome boys Angelo 7 and Zeus 1 1/2.”
Congratulations, Sara and Dereck! Thank you for trusting us with your Oahu beach wedding! We wish you all the happiness in the future!
