The attraction was there from the beginning. She flashed him her smile and fed him bags of Doritos in hopes of winning him over. The timing wasn’t quite right in high school. However years later, she happened upon a Facebook post that read “Anyone else in need a stiff drink? Or do I have to drink alone?”
He hasn’t had to drink alone since.
It was on a bright, dazzling July day in Half Moon Bay, California where Chadia and Kevin shared their vows at the Oceano Hotel and Spa. They reflected back on those years, sharing their wonderful love story to their family and friends. Tears were swept away with the gentle, coastal breeze, only to be replaced by smiles of joy and expressions of love.
Chadia and Kevin, thank you for allowing me to capture and witness this special day. It’s because of love stories like yours and the emotion and soul of your family that makes my job so incredibly rewarding. We wish you all the joys marriage can bring and a lifetime of memories to carry you both through this lifelong journey. Enjoy your time in Italy and Greece! I look forward to when we can sit down to eat pancit and adobo – because every great relationship should be defined by food.
With all my love and affection,
Here’s a sneak peek of Chadia and Kevin’s coastal wedding. Stay tuned for more images from this beautiful event.
Update (08/17/16): I am beyond thrilled and honored to have photos from this stunning wedding featured on Borrowed & Blue. It is always my hope that I am able to capture the true emotion that is tangible when you are part of a moment in real life. I think you’ll agree that the love and joy Chadia & Kevin have for each other and their families shines brightly in these pictures!
I loved the vintage, coastal feel of the suites at the Oceano Hotel. The rooms were beautifully decorated and served as the perfect backdrop for these wedding detail photos.
The day was beautiful along the coast of Half Moon Bay as the bride and groom exchanged their vows in front of their family and friends.
The orchid bouquet by Flower Divas was absolutely gorgeous against the bride’s nautical inspired dress.
