Braden + Phillip’s Panama Island Wedding | Panama

Real Weddings / June 17, 2015

Oh man, what can I say about these two dapper boys?

You can’t go wrong with a wedding in Panama, the tropical palm trees, their navy, grey and yellow accent colours, and the feels….. all the feels!

They had an intimate ceremony with 35 family and friends gathered on the deck of The Firefly in Bocas del Toro, Panama. Their good friend, August, officiated the wedding with readings by their best men, Brian and Matt.  After their ceremony, they had the best food you’ll find in Bocas del Toro.

On their reception

“We had opted to make our own playlist for the dancing that followed, which was a huge hit.  Fireworks, sparklers, and lip synching were some key points of the reception…

The most magical moment came during the reception while we were dancing. The owners surprised us with fireworks which exploded at tree level. It was an amazing end to an amazing day.

Wedding planning tips

As long as you have people that love you around, all the other little things don’t matter as much. With a destination wedding, this is amplified by 329048230498209 %. There are a lot of things outside of your control, so just enjoy the day and the ones you love.

Lara is a bit of dark horse. She is a wedding photographer, a video editor, a motorcycle riding, hot chocolate connoisseur who was once a ballerina. WOAH?! Yeah, you heard me. And @ F yeah, no one really knows what she does. Maybe she looks after all the social media, marketing and being that final swing vote on large F* Yeah decisions. Maybe she’s the king of the music playlists and maybe she’s the one that always manages to look busy even when she’s really actually doing nothing. Maybe.
