After spending two and a half years in Japan with the military, you could say Shane was a little bit excited to be home and finally sealing the deal with his bride in front of their family and friends. And after nursing school and the start of her career, Sydney was stoked too. They secretly stole away 3 years ago to the courthouse and made it official (okay how romantic is that?) and spilled the beans to their family 8 months later. On September 1st, 2018, they celebrated their commitment to each other with a beautiful Hawaiian inspired ceremony as a nod to family heritage. Family and friends joined them at the historic Cosmopolitan Hotel in Old Town San Diego, watching with misty eyes as these two said their vows to each other.


Their adorable little details included gorgeous cactus and succulents planted by the bride’s sister, and eucalyptus garlands. The courtyard provided a stunning backdrop for the greenery and long wooden tables. Dueling pianos serenaded the guests all night while they enjoyed the open bar and partied their little booties off!
