I take you, Gabriel, as my husband.
Before you asked me I was yours, and I am devoted to you in every way.
I’m sitting in bed next to you right now, writing this, our daughter who is literally our love personified laying next to us, and all I can think about is how truly truly blessed I am. What did I do to deserve this beautiful life that happened when you walked into it? This beautiful person you’ve given me to love.
I promise to love who you are now, and who you are yet to become, with all of me.
I promise to be grateful every day for you, for your kindness, your patience, the way you care so deeply for your family, and the father you are to our daughter.
Together we are building a life far better that either of us could have imagined alone, and I promise to keep our love and the family we are building as my priority.
You are my heart, my best friend, my partner in every sense of the word. I love you with everything, and I promise to love you everyday and night of our lives.
I take you, Jessi, as my wife.
I promise to give you my all.. every piece of me. To be one with you. To put you first. To put our family first.
I promise to never take one moment with you for granted. To never forget how blessed we are… and how hard we fought to be standing here today, together.
Our journey has been a dream. From falling in love right here on this beautiful island of Oahu, to traveling the world together, to starting a family together. To this very moment at the alter.
It’s so much more than I could have ever imagined.
All I want is to give you the same joy and love that you have unconditionally given me since the very first day we met.
I vow to protect your heart, to protect our family, and to lead our family with love, kindness, patience, and faith.
I could not have wished for a better glam team to be with on my wedding day!! These two girls @kecialittman and @ashleevaleros were so amazing to work with and killed it in every way possible! I’m so thankful to have been in their hands for the most special day of my life!
I knew she was the one, my Hechizo gown by Pronovias! A year ago I spent a day with head designer @moreau.herve explaining what I wanted to look like, what I wanted to feel like on my wedding day, and then he created this! The look was classic and bridal, but also perfect for the island. Seeing the hubby’s face when the doors to the chapel opened and I walked down the aisle said it all 🖤
Taking in these breathtaking views of the island from the Four Seasons penthouse! A special thank you to Kim for making this possible!!
My dream altar!! A HUGE thank you to our incredible florist, Yvonne Design for bringing my vision to life! When we choose this location, I knew I wanted a tropical vibe with loads of palm leaves, candlelight, and other elements that felt natural in the setting with a touch of modern luxury. I couldn’t be happier with how everything came together, from the alter design, the pathway leading to the alter, my bouquet and our reception centerpieces! All the floral designs perfectly complimented the Hawaii scenery and felt fresh and romantic!
When G and I first entered this chapel a year ago, one of the first things that sold us on having our wedding here was the picture perfect view from this window! It was really important to me to do a minimal design alongside this window that would compliment the view and have it flow with the scenery right outside the chapel. I love how sporadic, modern, and sleek these stands looked with the tall acrylic candlelight surrounding the altar..it was so dreamy!
A pathway of candlelights and white rose petals led up to the alter.
My stunning bridal bouquet featured my favorites flowers; hydrangea, phalaenopsis, orchids, and roses laced with subtle tropical foliage to compliment the chapel decor!
The cutest flowergirls!!
This moment. I dreamed of this moment, so many times played it over and over in my head to try to imagine what it would feel like. I couldn’t imagine loving you more, feeling any closer to you. 🖤
Thank you family for making this the happiest, most fun, love filled day of our lives! G, Ále and I love each of you so so much 🙏🏼 From my father-in-law officiating, to the candle lighting ceremony with our moms, our siblings as our wedding party, my niece’s hula, and my dad’s sweet sweet toast, and just dancing the night away with everyone, our hearts are so full… I want to live this day over and over again! Thank you all for coming and sharing in our love!
