Although it was the beginning of summer, the uncertainty of COVID restrictions lifting made it difficult to decide if weddings in 2021 were still a possibility. As fate would have it, restrictions were lifted for July 2021, and Kiarra & Brent’s guests were so excited to celebrate the wedding of this beautiful couple!
One of Kiarra & Brent’s wishes was to have a “first look” that allowed them to connect one last time before Brent would see Kiarra for the first time walking down the aisle. Their ceremony at the iconic St. Joseph’s Basilica included many personal touches by Kiarra & Brent, with the handmade details of their Catholic and traditional Filipino nuptials as well as the music provided by Kiarra’s cousin, Gerald.
One of the most important parts (and highlights) of their day were the multitude of surprises that Kiarra, Brent, and their family had us secretly add to their reception program. With the assistance of Joy, Brent presented video greetings from Kiarra’s friends and family that could not make it to their wedding. In turn, Kiarra had her sister, Dionne and Gerald perform a rendition of Brent’s favorite song during their first dance.
