Dani & Mat - Married at Molii Gardens in Kualoa Ranch

Dani & Mat - Married at Molii Gardens in Kualoa Ranch

It was super important for D&M to have plenty of images where their loved ones were having fun in the beauty of the location they chose! With yard games and mountain views, it wasn’t hard for anyone to enjoy themselves. These were some of the most heartfelt & genuine people we’ve ever met and are excited to share their wedding day. You will see how Dani’s grandma just adored the two of them, the respect her brothers have for her and her parents, the crazy dance off to choose which table got dinner first, and kids being….well, kids!

Megan & Travis - Elope Oceanfront at Makapuu Lighthouse

Megan brings the spunk while Travis is quiet and reserved, but during their vows they both had wet eyes and wet cheeks as well as their four witnesses :) It was such a simple beach wedding, which is exactly what these two wanted after being together for so long. It was intentional, emotional, and intimate. It was such an honor to get close to these two and their four loved ones as they looked on with love in their eyes, joy in their smiles, and warmth in their hugs.

Hannah & Matthew - A Small Waikiki Elopement near Diamond Head

Some of the best moments from H&M’s wedding in Honolulu was the way her dad looked at her & teared up when he first saw her in her wedding dress, Matt’s parent’s getting emotional during the entire ceremony, their symbolic - but windy - butterfly release, Hannah’s run in with the sliding door, their gorgeous portraits at Diamond Head, their emotional and intentional wedding vows that had the whole room in tears, and a unique photo-bomber while walking to the pier in Waikiki.

Denise & Adam - An Intimate Wedding in Waimea Valley

Denise & Adam got married in La’ie on the North Shore of Oahu. They started their day off by seeing one another; alone and at the banyan tree next to Turtle Bay. It was simple, it was tender, and very intimate. You’ll see the anticipation in Adam’s face below as Denise approached closer to him and he heard the crunch of her steps. After their small ceremony, they wanted to take a little “road trip” up the North Shore to stop by some of their favorite spots together.

That beauty is humanity: the love, the support, the encouragement, the mundane (i.e. the three groomsmen video recording Mary Meg & Alex’s first dance), the “loss” of your daughter or son to marriage, the crazy dance floor shenanigans, innocence, warmth, and a heck of a lot more!
