When Kailey and James planned their special day, they fell in love with the blog posts on Simple Maui Wedding. Once they realized similar services were available on other islands — they knew an Oahu beach elopement was for them! Scroll down to see this intimate affair for yourself!
Kahu Kawena Mechler officiated this sunset wedding on the shores of Papailoa. This north Oahu beach set the perfect backdrop for their special day. In every picture captured by Karma Hill Photography, you can see how breathtaking this location was! We love how the ivory sand, cerulean water, and sensational lava rocks decorate the background exquisitely. Above all, every photo looks like a fairytale!
Kailey and James met when they were freshmen in college. They have been inseparable ever since the first day of the semester! In 2016, James asked Kailey to marry him. She said yes, but also no because they weren’t quite ready yet. Our lovely couple circled back to the question after they finished college and started their careers. Then in 2020, they publicly got engaged!
This occasion was our gorgeous couple’s first time in Hawaii! They were most excited to make this visit more remarkable with their wedding and honeymoon.
Since Kailey and James are an adventurous duo, eloping in Oahu was right up their alley! Most importantly, we’re glad we were able to be part of their delightful wedding day!
Currently, they moved to a new city and just recently finished settling in. We can’t wait to see what pictures they hang on the walls of their new home! There are so many enchanting shots to choose from!
Congratulations Kailey and James! It was a pleasure to be part of your elopement. We wish you a future full of free time in your ‘87 Volkswagen Westfalia!
