Julian and Katie had a gorgeous destination wedding at Puakea Ranch on the Big Island of Hawaii. I can't wait to share more from this beautiful couple's perfect event. We all stayed dry under this beautiful tree on the ranch during a pretty hefty rain blessing that ended with their ceremony. With Rachael from Vintage & Lace behind the decor and planning, you know everything will run smoothly and look beautiful. Flowers came from Honoka'a's Grace Flowers Hawaii. A big congratulations to Julian and Katie!
If you are a regular reader of this blog (all three of you!) you might recognize Julie and Andy from when I photographed them before here, they are also prominently displayed through out my editorial website. On top of being a muse of sorts for me, these two are great friends who we miss dearly here in Hawaii. They flew over to the Big Island for work recently and introduced us to their newest muse, Señor Wylie. Isn't he just adorable? I want to snuggle him up to pieces. Congratulations to our buddies on making such a handsome and sweet bebe.
I am thrilled to see the beautiful wedding blog Snippet & Ink published two Bikini Birdie Weddings today. The first is Laura and Gonzalo's elegant and rustic Segovia wedding at Finca Aldeallana. The blog also featured Monica and Valerio's Formentera wedding at 10.7 Formentera. I loved both of these weddings so much and had a great time documenting all the love. It is a pleasure to see my work featured on such a lovely site. Check out the links when you have a chance here and here.
This gorgeous couple had their Hawaii destination wedding on the beaches of the Kona Coast. Beth and Tyler had a lovely ocean side ceremony coordinated and designed by the fantastic Sara Kam of Jots of Thoughts. Sara and Beth designed a beautiful reception right in the heart of Kailua-Kona at Daylight Mind. I will share more soon of this beautiful wedding.
Anika is from the Big Island's Hilo side so it was a real homecoming for her to tie the know with her amazing partner, Ryan. They had a lovely wedding ceremony at a private home in Keauhou mauka. Congratulations to these two! I look forward to sharing more from this very special Hawaii destination wedding.
This beautiful family had a lovely beach elopement at the Four Seasons on the Big Island of Hawaii. Their guest of honor looked adorable in his little suit. Congratulations and Aloha!
Adam and Amy came from their home in New Zealand to the Big Island of Hawai'i for their very special destination wedding at the Hokukano Bayhouse at Keauhou Bay. Adam's family all made trip from NZ to Kona for the big event, and Amy's from the cold winter of Minnesota. They were so lovely and I had a great time getting to know this beautiful couple and all of their loved ones. Vintage and Lace teamed up with Passion Flowers by Nalani made for a flawless evening and gorgeous styling, which I look forward to sharing in a future post. For now, I wish Amy and Adam all the best, and lots of Aloha!

As yesterday's news unfolded about the Supreme Court taking on the ruling on gay marriage, I was photographing these two at the Mauna Lani for their Hawaii destination wedding. Taelor and Niki have been together for ten years and are more in love than ever. I was so excited to hear the developments and am confident the court will move forward towards progress. Here's to getting married in Hawaii and staying married in all fifty states! Happy weekend, everyone.
We photographed Josh and Melissa and their two lovely daughters at my special beach on the Big Island's Kona Coast, He'eia Bay. The entire family are amazing surfers and I look forward to saying I knew these two young athletes when... In addition to being super surfers, they are the sweetest family, always out on adventures and exploring.
