With COVID safety and restrictions in mind, Charissa and Christopher shifted plans away from a large Texas wedding and decided to elope in Oahu instead. We were thrilled to help make their “just us” wedding a reality! The morning at Waimanalo Beach featured spectacular lighting and lush, tropical backdrops. With endless smiles and tender moments, this wedding in Oahu was “take-your-breath-away” beautiful.
Nestled in the heart of a small, windward community, Waimanalo Beach served as the stage for Charissa and Christopher’s ceremony. The sounds of the ukulele and the soft morning sun filtered through the air as the Oahu tradewinds kept the affair comfortable and relaxing. We loved the way Charissa’s boho-chic dress draped against the sand. And can we just draw attention to her gorgeous retro-inspired hair and makeup? Simple and elegant never looked so good!
Charissa and Christopher have been together for half a decade and are proud parents of a sweet furbaby named Nash. Charissa runs a dental office and Christopher is both a lawyer and a professor. They met at a lowkey BBQ and got engaged in the sweetest spot, Christopher’s parents’ backyard. Keeping the simple yet romantic tradition alive, Charissa and Christopher opted to forgo a wedding back home in Austin and chose to elope in Oahu. And we’re so happy they did! Keep scrolling for all the beautiful moments!
Mahalo nui loa, Charissa and Christopher, for trusting us to coordinate your wedding in Oahu. We wish you all the love in the decades ahead!
