And for our love birds, their story began at the University of New Mexico, where Alaina currently works! She has been there for 11 years – just as long as they have been dating! What’s even more romantic is that Katharine proposed to Alaina on November 11, 2020, two years after their Oahu elopement!

They had just closed on a house and were supposed to get the keys to it on that very day, but unfortunately, they weren’t ready. But Katherine took Alaina to the backyard, popped down on one knee, and said, “I know we do not have the keys to the house, but you have the key to my heart! Will you marry me?” Alaina said yes, of course!

A Hawaii Dream

Their special day was very endearing and beautiful, as you can see! They are so happy in these photos, just the two of them, and more in love than ever! Their intimate Oahu elopement was on the grassy lawn at Kualoa Regional Park, with the most epic backdrops of the mountains in the distance! With a sandy beach right in front of the grassy lawn, it’s truly the best of both worlds!

After a few romantic portraits with the mountains in the distance, we wandered down to the beach with our beautiful brides! They looked radiant together with their tropical bouquets! Their photos’ lighting was so soft and ethereal….like a painting!

Congratulations to Alaina and Katherine! May you have many more happy years together with your son and pup! We hope to see you again soon!
