Fairmont Orchid wedding, Mary and Joe

Surrounded by family and friends, Mary and Jo celebrated their 10 year anniversary with Mary’s dream Hawaiian Wedding. They chose the Fairmont Orchid Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii as the setting for their Hawaii vow renewal, and it was the perfect venue for their reception. What a great gathering place for the family to celebrate!

The amazing scenery and panoramic oceanfront views at Turtle Point, provided an unforgettable backdrop for their ceremony and reception. Turtle point also offers spectacular views of the summits of the Kohala Mountains, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa from a beautifully manicured lawn area extending into the sea.

Sheraton Kona Wedding, Sophia & Chris

Choosing the stunning Sheraton Kona for their Big Island destination wedding was an easy decision for Sophia & Chris. Chris’ parents lived on the island for years, at Aston
Kona by the Sea, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. When Chris and Sophia began dating, he began taking her to the Big Island to spend time with his family. She too fell in love with the island. So when they began planning their wedding, there was no question it would be here.

The photography coverage started the day before the wedding, with a “White party” rehearsal dinner on the front lawn of Aston Kona by the Sea, I loved getting to know everyone over the course of the celebration. Sophia and Chris are two very fashion forward people, so I just knew the wedding would be as stylish and unique as they are, from Sophia’s modern blue wedding dress to Chris’ matching ascot,vest and dragonfly brooch, the celebration perfectly reflected who they are as people.

Waialea Bay beach elopement

Even though I only spent about three hours with Yolanda and David , it was obvious how much they cared for and delighted in one another. The wedding was surrounded by a peaceful, dazed joy that I haven’t seen before. Rachael at Vintage and Lace did an incredible job making this private beach wedding absolutely perfect and I am so glad that I got to be a part of it! Yolanda walked down the beach path at Waialea Bay (Beach 69) to a Hawaiian song played by Charles Grace on the ukelele, as David waited for her in the most secluded little spot of beach surrounded by trees. After the wedding, The couple traveled to Browns Beach House at the Fairmont Orchid for a romantic dinner. Congratulations Yolanda and David, you are beautiful and I could not be happier for you two!
