A gentle mist blessed the valley during the spirited Oahu beach wedding of Michelle and Hanna-Klara. We were honored to capture the sweet and endearing love that shines from this beautiful young couple.
With the Secret Island of Kualoa Ranch setting the stage, the ceremony was feminine with a splash of tropical allure and foggy mystery. Endless blooms of coconut palms and local greenery painted the shoreline, while the calm ocean lapped gracefully in the foreground. It all served as the perfect canvas to capture the tender affection that filled this whimsical Oahu wedding.
Before setting sail to Secret Island, the couple shared a few intimate moments on the floating dock, rocking to-and-fro with the pulse of the ocean. Does it get more romantic?
The ceremony was ordained over by the talented Kahu Kawena Mechler. She began the union with a traditional Hawaiian chant, and the guests fell into a silent reverie as they soaked in the melody, the oasis-like venue, and the tranquil love between the brides.
Michelle guided Hanna through the Jewish tradition of glass breaking as her proud father took pictures of the joyous occasion.
We loved the thoughtful touch of the two overlapping rainbows on the silken sack. It was a perfect way to commemorate both family heritage and the LGBTQIA community.
This stunning capture looks as if it was freshly painted. Two lovely women donned in white dresses carrying bouquets and parasols, all set against the aquamarine sea… did we just stumble into a Monet?
As an end to the beautiful day, the couple shared their first dance on the wooden dock, swaying to the music and the rhythm of the ocean.
Thank you for sharing your Special Day with us, Michelle and Hanna… we wish you the fondest aloha in the years to come…
