Victoria and Romarr’s Wedding

Victoria and Romarr get married at a beautiful outdoor ceremony at the Wedgewood Banquet Center at the Delta View Golf Course in Pittsburg California.

We leave Menlo Park that afternoon and arrive in time to set up the video projector and screen. Luckily it wasn't too warm that evening for the outdoor ceremony. We met up with family, Auntie Amy and Noe, Carmen and the Batos and all the relatives from both sides of the family. We wore the traditional Barong-Tagalog shirts. The ceremony was lovely, elegant and simple. Andrew walked his daughter Victoria down the aisle. Cedric and Colin were the ring barers and Alliyah with help from Romarr's mom, Rhonda was the flower girl. Victoria and Romarr did the sand mixing ceremony before walking down the aisle as man and wife.

The evening proceeded into the banquet facility and the introduction of the wedding party. We then had a buffet lunch while I played the video. Toasts proceeded dinner from both sides of the wedding party and family members in the audience. Then there was the bouquet toss, garter belt toss, first dances and money dance. The evening concluded with DJ dancing into the wee hours of the morning.

Congratulations Victoria and Romarr, love you guys and wish you the very best!
