Whenever you visit a new location for the first time, you should always make your time there memorable. For Joey Chu-Jen and Jerry Chieh-Wen Chen, their first time in Hawaii was remarkable because of their Oahu beach elopement! Keep scrolling to experience this delightful morning for yourself.
Joey Chu-Jen and Jerry Chieh-Wen Chen exchanged vows on the pearl shores of Papa’iloa! With Kahu Kawena Mechler as the officiate and the location a breathtaking beach — this ceremony was a fairytale! Scroll down to see more of this magical occasion.
In the photos captured by Karma Hill Photography, you can see just how vivid this spot looks under the morning light! The flowing waves are bright aqua, while the dramatic lava rocks are sensational. Overall, everything about this North Oahu spot looks like a dream!
Our Couple’s Story
In 2010, our beautiful couple separately came to the United States from Taiwan. They first met in the Lone Star State, Austin, Texas, in 2012. For seven years, their relationship was long distance. Jerry lived in Texas, while Joey was in Indiana for her Ph.D. then California for her postdoctoral studies. On August 4th, Joey’s birthday, Jerry proposed while they were in a forest in Big Bear, California!
Currently, Joey has her Ph.D. in Learning Sciences and is working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of California. Jerry is a Chemical Engineer in Houston, Texas. They have been together for nine years. After seven years, they finally moved to the same state and moved in together last month! We hope some of the portraits from your Oahu beach elopement are decorating your wall! You can find them traveling, hiking, or playing board games in their spare them.
Congratulations, Joey Chu-Jen and Jerry Chieh-Wen Chen! It was a pleasure to be part of your wedding day! Wishing you a future full of new adventures and great memories.
