Outrigger Kona Resort Wedding, Remi & Jon

Outrigger Kona Resort Wedding, Remi & Jon

From high school sweethearts to being together for ten years. Being with each other through that time was perfect for supporting and pushing each other to be the best versions of them that they could be. They were able to be completely in love and still follow their individual goals, with a deep friendship and understanding that was forged with time. The proposal happened right in front of Cinderella’s Castle in Disney World, a beautiful and long awaited proposal. Now their adventure and love story continues with the newest chapter in their journey together.

Remi had her hair and makeup done in her room while her bridesmaids helped get her ready for her big day. Along with help from White hot Hawaii who designed her dress and some other items from David’s Bridal. Jon and his grooms men were ready with some of Zara’s finest.

They choose a beautiful destination wedding at the Outrigger Kona Resort & Spa, overlooking Keauhou Bay, lava cliffs, mountains, and beautifully landscaped grounds. The resort is technically in Keauhou, which translates to “a new current”. This is a very beautiful and special place that means a place that we call home. Perfectly fitting because Remi and Jon are finding their home together. Their wedding was filmed by Techy3 who helped to capture their memories from this special day. The flowers were arranged by Hitomi Gilliam giving the wedding a creative flower design and tropical flowers were provided by Green Point Nurseries. The cake and delicious treats were made by Kona Sweets. The music was done by Eclipse Effect. They added a special touch to the wedding. The décor was perfectly suited for the event done by Paradise Décor. Their forever was about to begin as Pastor Eric Anderson married them off to a happily ever after.

Outrigger Kona Resort Wedding, Sophia & Chris

Choosing the stunning Outrigger Kona Resort & Spa 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.

They exchanged vows overlooking the picturesque Kona Coast blessed by ocean breezes, a light sun shower and a heavenly sunset.

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!Big Island wedding photographer Hawaii

Karen and Aaron, Puako Beach, Big Island of Hawaii

Admittedly, a wedding photographer should not be promoting eloping … but it is so fun! I know I live in a beautiful, special place and I’m always intrigued when people from out of the area come to the Big Island to elope. Karen and Aaron came all the way from Vancouver, Canada, and eloped at Puako Beach yesterday, and they had a blast.  Photographing elopements is a beautiful thing because it is simply about the love between two people. Karen and Aaron are fantastic people and their wedding, standing out on the lava rocks was simply breathtaking.  Karen and I had e-mailed back and forth a few times in the past few months, deciding on locations and details, they chose Rev. Patrick Thompson to perform the ceremony, and we decided to time their 15 min ceremony so that the sun would be setting by the end of our one hour photo session….gorgeous!

Steve and Mai’s wedding, Kikaua Point, Big Island of Hawaii

Steve and Mai traveled to the Big Island of Hawaii to make Kikaua Point the location for their special day!  It was a picture perfect morning for their small, intimate ceremony including just Steve and Mai’s little girl, Kohana, and two of their closest friends.  The ceremony was officiated by Lona Lyons of Romantic Beach Weddings.  I have to make special mention of Kohana…..she was a complete angel during the ceremony and such fun to photograph!  Some of my favorite pics of the day are of this beautiful trio just hanging out, laughing and having fun together.  Thanks again for allowing me to part of your stunning Kikaua point wedding!

Hillary and Scott, Kikaua Point Beach, Big Island Hawaii

This Big Island wedding is about as vintage and gorgeous as they come. Hillary and Scott are self-described “old school”, and their eclectic style shows it! Hillary wore a gorgeous vintage style dress she referred to as a woodland fairy dress, the long ribbons gracefully danced in the light wind during the wedding. A unique and inspiring service, complete with powerful chanting was performed with aloha by Rev. Penei Aller of Beach Weddings Hawaii. After the ceremony, Hillary and Scott danced as the sun went down over the water. For more of this perfect day, sit back and revel in a little Big Island beauty.

Jordan & Jeremiah, Old Aiport Beach & Royal Kona Resort, Big Island Hawaii

Being a wedding photographer in Kona has its perks, namely the weather.  Let’s just say I’m spoiled with year-round sunnyness…almost every day.  In fact, rain is so infrequent on the beaches here that  most couples don’t have a plan B for the wedding location, so, when we are hit with the occasional rain we usually have to scramble to make last-minute changes to the wedding. This is exactly what was going on yesterday at 4pm, when it started raining at Old Airport Beach, and with Jordan and Jeremiah’s  ceremony scheduled for 5pm.  Now, I think there is something really romantic about the rain. I absolutely love that this adorable couple didn’t let rain on the day of their wedding stop them. I think it really just added to the magic of the day……….because they decided to stay and have the ceremony outdoors on the beach, and the rain just stopped, magically, shortly after Jordan arrived. The wedding ceremony was officiated by Rev. Patrick Thompson and the couple wrote their own vows …which were incredibly touching. We headed back to the Royal Kona Resort for cocktails and dinner and I need to take a moment to thank Brian Scully for orchestrating a beautiful reception.

Caroline and Scott, Hilton Waikoloa Village

Caroline and Scott were married at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, one of my favorite Big island venues! These guys are an amazing couple – so sweet and adorable! The wedding day was truly a reflection of their love and one awesome celebration. The couple got ready early, and then we took pictures before the ceremony to take full advantage of the gorgeous Hawaiian light.  The day was  filled with lots of laughter, happy tears, and joy!
