Elspeth and Paul’s Oahu Micro Wedding was simple and elegant, with cool tropical breezes and endless love and smiles. Kualoa Beach Park set the stage, decorating their Big Day with a glistening ocean and the striking view of Oahu’s valley mountains. The islet of Mokoliʻi (Chinaman’s Hat) watched on from a distance, greener and lusher than we’ve ever seen it. This was truly a ceremony worth celebrating!
Elspeth made her debut on the arm of her adoring sister. Beaming with love and excitement, Elspeth looked radiant in a simple gown with goddess pleating and accents of tropical island flowers. Paul awaited her on the sand, wearing a bold bowtie paired with an elegant suit and an expression that says it all: Elspeth is the love of his life. Unknown to Elspeth, Paul worked with us to secretly add on a musician to their Oahu Micro Wedding! She was serenaded like the queen she is as she walked down the sandy aisle!
Elspeth is an ER nurse and Paul is an ER doctor. They met while serving in the military overseas in South Korea. Paul recently moved with the Army to a new assignment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and he proposed on a brisk spring morning under the cherry blossoms in Washington, DC. How romantic is that?!
Together, Elspeth and Paul love to be outdoors together, with Elspeth enjoying gardening and hiking, and Paul being drawn to surfing and snorkeling. And it’s little wonder why! Paul grew up in Oahu, and his parents still live on the island. Elspeth and Paul felt an Oahu Micro Wedding was the perfect way to take advantage of the gorgeous landscapes while fitting in quality time with his family.
When asked, Elspeth and Paul said they wanted their wedding to be “a meaningful expression of our love and commitment to each other and to God through a simple, intimate and relaxed ceremony.” And we feel this is the perfect way to describe it! Keep scrolling for more of this sweet couple!
Congratulations, Elspeth and Paul! Thank you for trusting us with your Oahu micro wedding. It was a beautiful day, and you were a joy to work with! Mahalo for your service, and we hope to see you again in the future! Until then, we send our fondest Aloha.
