Sally + Teva

 

It was an overcast drizzly day for Sally + Teva's intimate Honokaa elopement. The theme of their wedding was the Forest (Sally) meets the Sea (Teva). Sally is from Australia and Teva from Hawaii. 

Aunty Tutu blessed the ceremony location and blew a conch shell as the couple walked to the alter. She serenaded the couple on her ukulele and performed a Hawaiian ceremony with Teva's parents as witnesses. Sally + Teva spoke their vows to each other with the dramatic Waipio Valley behind them.

Moody Botanical Editorial

 

We're so lucky to live in Hawaii and photograph weddings that are 95% outdoors in the bright golden sun. For this styled shoot we decided to try something different and dreamed up this indoor ceremony space with the help of Passion Roots. With moody tropical touches, this wall became a magical botanical dream! It's always fun to collaborate with other creatives to create something beautiful!

Jonas + Staesi

 

I'm so excited to finally share this wedding, where the groom is one of my favorite people (ARIA crew member Jonas), and the location is DISNEYLAND.

Jonas + Staesi love Star Wars so it only made sense that their wedding day was full of Star Wars details! Staesi looked amazing in her custom storm trooper gown with Rey inspired hair. Jonas' father was appropriately dressed as Darth Vader, and a crew of little Storm Troopers walked the aisle in lieu of traditional flower girls and ring bearers. I had so much fun celebrating these two!
