My bridesmaids and I got ready in my hotel room at the Kahala Hotel. How’s that for a wedding morning view?

It never made sense to me why bridesmaids should wear the same dress, when they  might look their best in different things. I’m all about celebrating diversity — plus, I trust my girls’ tastes — so my only instruction to them was to find a long blue dress. I was absolutely in awe with what they brought back.

The best part of getting married in downtown Honolulu is that you can walk over to the historic Iolani Palace for extra photos.

My adorable cousin walks down the aisle with a “I came for the cake” sign,” very appropriate for our food-themed ceremony

Instead of unity candles or sand ceremonies, Anthony and I represented our union with food that symbolized us — I’m a macaron, and he’s a Ritz cracker.

For a seating chart, Anthony used a world map, since each table was themed after a city that we’ve visited together.

It’s not a wedding without a photo booth!

My aunt baked us four beautiful cakes. Here’s our cake toppers that I ordered from Etsy! They look like us!

Semi-naked cakes are my favorite.

To match our travel theme, our favors were little suitcase tins filled with Hawaiian macadamia nuts
13962897_10105573323756323_8871899100117828279_o
Each table was themed after a city that we’ve visited together. On each table was a book and four pictures that we took in that city.

My Maid-of-Honor’s speech made me cry, of course.
13914021_10209531775267806_7811339243200304875_o
The Best Man’s speech made me cry, too!
13680489_10209531775987824_7862175267511732558_o
We played the Shoe Game, but with rubbah slippahs — a nice Hawaiian touch.
13679952_10209531777067851_6049129722932478986_o
Our first dance was to KCi & Jojo’s “All My Life”

It’s not a true Filipino wedding unless you have the Money Dance!

It looked like a music video
