gail and virgil :: the makena golf and beach resort

September 4, 2011

Gail and Virgil – this sweet and FUN couple stole our hearts. Their pure love and tender affection for each other are one of a kind. Both being the youngest of of their families, their wedding was extremely special for both sides. An exceptional celebration with friends and family from California, New Jersey, Texas and even the Philippines. 2 and 3 child families coming all that way – now thats love!

Virgil put tears in my eyes every time he spoke to Gail. What a complete gentleman 🙂 Their ceremony was so heart felt with the Filipino wedding tradition of arras, which is the exchange of coins to symbolize their promise to support each other, followed by the tradition of the veil and the cord. These unique traditions full of culture and meaning made it all so sentimental.

We were so honored to photograph such a special couple’s wedding – Congratulations Gail and Virgil! Thanks for the good times ……… and the gray goose 😉

Ciao, Sandra
