How did the planning go?

My wedding planning was pretty easy, since I’m in the wedding industry. I already knew what vendors I was going to choose because I work alongside them.


We wrote our own vows and my brother was the preacher so our ceremony was intimate and full of laughter.

Funny Moment

My brother forgot to ask everyone to please sit at our ceremony so everyone stood the whole time (LOL).

Did you have any special cultural features to your wedding or factors that celebrated the heritage of you or your family?

Hawaiian Hula Dancing and Samoan Dancing.

Advice from the couple:

Do your research, find the things you can go cheaper on and what you shouldn’t go cheaper on. Buying templates from Etsy and getting them printed at Staples is a lot cheaper than purchasing them.

Anything you would have done differently?

Hire a wedding planner and not just the ones through the venues.
