Angelique & Ryan – Hilton to Tiki’s – Oahu

Posted on

When I first met Angelique over the phone a year ago, I had no idea how blessed I would be to meet such a strong and caring woman. Ange was honest, candid, funny, and her fiancé Ryan met her charisma and humor perfectly. Funny thing is, they both met when they were 14 years old in high school. Angelique quoted: “If someone had told me I would be marrying Ryan Soriano I would have told them no way and that they were out of their mind”.

Since their years in high school, Ange & Ryan developed a close friendship and relationship. While dating they were blessed with the most adorable baby boy, Jalen. The couple picked out their rings together but Ryan held onto the rings for some time. On Christmas day while Ange was taking a nap, he woke her up and asked: “So, do you want to be a Soriano, or what?”. This funny and endearing memory of theirs led them to begin planning their wedding together.

Ange & Ryan were so simple and down to Earth that their wedding reflected their personalities perfectly. They were looking for a simple ceremony near the beach with a delicious dinner buffet and wedding cake. They decided to have their ceremony on the beautiful Village Green at the Hilton Hawaiian Village and reception at Tiki’s Coconut Club. The ladies were stunning in their lavender dresses and Ange commanded the wedding in her beautiful strapless dress while showing off her awesome body art! Ryan and the boys were fresh with their fades and haircut that they had done that very morning in their matching lavender shirts and khakis. Although there was a sprinkle of rain before the ceremony, the rain let up and the couple with their friends and family shared their vows against the stunning backdrop of the lagoon and had perfect weather at their reception.

Best wishes to the couple, their baby boy, and their friends & family. Shout out to the amazing team of vendors who brought this all together!
