Highschool sweethearts Eloina and Lloyd's wedding was 16 years in the making. "It's not every day you get back together with your childhood boyfriend and get married," laughs Eloina. "After only three years of being apart we reconnected and have been together ever since."
The couple decided on a traditional Filipino ceremony at the church Eloina grew up attending. "For us it was the most important part of the day, we were finally going to be united in the eyes of the church," shares the bride.
The reception decor was just as lavish as the couple's cathedral ceremony venue. "The reception was breathtaking," explains Eloina. "Our tables were draped in white with pops of gold and each table had a four-foot crystal chandelier for a romantic feel."
