There was endless aquamarine everywhere you looked during Atsumi and Bryden’s Oahu Beach Elopement. Set on the shimmering white sands of Waimanalo with just the bride and groom and a few loved ones in attendance, this beautiful ceremony featured love, love, and more love.
As vibrant and stunning as the Hawaiian shoreline was that morning, it couldn’t outshine our radiant couple! Dressed in a lace gown with a sheer overlay that flowed with the island breeze, Atsumi looked simply beautiful in a tropical flower crown and that sweet smile!
In a classic with a modern twist, Bryden tied his life together with Atsumi while sporting a French Blue suit and leather accents. These two were their own drop of sunshine on the beach that day!
Atsumi and Bryden originally planned for a large wedding with friends and family from the US and Japan. Since Oahu was right in the middle, they hoped to have an island wedding with plenty of loved ones in attendance. Unfortunately, due to COVID, they canceled the bigger ceremony. But they were thrilled to still have an Oahu Beach Elopement. And, wow, did it turn out beautiful!
Atsumi works as a dental assistant and moved to Seattle from Japan eight years ago. Bryden works at Amazon corporate and grew up around Seattle. Together they have two sweet cats and recently bought their first home–congratulations! They now love getting their style on and playing interior designer with their new house.
Atsumi and Bryden were engaged during a trip outside of the city. On their visit to a Japanese shrine, Bryden surprised Atsumi with the Big Question. And, of course, she said yes!
Congratulations, Atsumi and Bryden! Thank you for choosing us to coordinate your Oahu Beach Elopement! It was truly and beautiful ceremony. We wish you all the joy and happiness in the years ahead!
