julie & derrick's wedding reception

commentator: monica

currently living in san diego, julie & derrick just had a destination wedding in hawaii the week before they celebrated their nuptials with the rest of their family and friends at the hong kong east ocean restaurant in emeryville. their reception was filled with plenty of food, what with their 10-course banquet, and lots of kids! they even treated the munchkins with individual party favor bags and a very talented balloon artist, which kept the little ones entertained for hours.

from the photos we saw displayed at the site, we knew julie & derrick had an awesome and beautiful wedding on oahu. so it was surprising to find out when we pulled them aside to do some shots outside along the shoreline that they didn't get a single sunset shot on the island! below is a photo of this adorable couple, enjoying the view of the other side of the pacific.

congratulations, julie & derrick... we wish you a lifetime of enjoying sunsets together!
