In the chaos and stress of the moments before a wedding, Miyuki turns to me and asks if I need anything to drink, and did I get a chance to go the beach this morning. She and Osamu are some of the most graceful and lovely people I have met in a long time, the kind of people you just want to take it and absorb. At their wedding I realized their family and friends are all reflections of their bright spirits. It was a personal, and special wedding with the couple's good friend officiating the outdoor ceremony up in the hills of Honolulu at the gorgeous Liljestrand House. Osamu is the perfect match for Miyuki, as her parents said at the reception, "because she chose him. " Miyuki looked perfect in a J. Mendel dress and Monolo Blahnik shoes. The event was flawlessly organized by Current Affairs with live music by Ian O'Sullivan.

Rob and Sarah came to Kauai from Ohio for a perfect beach elopement. We went all around the island's stunning North Shore photographing this sweet, sweet couple with Kauai's gorgeous tropical backdrop. Congratulations you two!

Last spring, I was fortunate enough to photograph Sheila and Steve's two-day long wedding fest in Michigan. They had a garden party in Ann Arbor during the day and then headed to an elegant dinner at the University of Michigan where they met. Day two was a traditional Hindu ceremony at the Hindu Temple of Canton. I consider Sheila one of the most special people I know since we met working at the State News. She is intelligent, curious, and incredibly caring. Although I only get to see her and Steve once every few years, our visits never fail. She has found an amazing partner in Steve, an amazing, patient and funny Tennessean. I love these two so much, and wish them all the best. Congrats Sheila and Steve!
