Last week, we had the pleasure of helping two locals tie the knot! Hawaii has a special place in Kalei and Chris’ hearts because they grew up here. Since this island is their home, they knew an Oahu wedding would be the perfect way to tie the knot! We can’t imagine this beautiful couple getting married any other way. Keep scrolling to experience this event for yourself!
Kalei and Chris’ wedding was simple, relaxing, and intimate! Our delightful couple and their eight guests arrived at the shores of Wai’alae Beach Park together. Before anything started, our stunning bride and handsome groom had their first looks. It was as if Kalei and Chris were the only two on the beach — it was so magical! Then Reverend Kimo Taylor began his heartwarming sermon. During the ceremony, Karma Hill Photography captured so many romantic shots! In every photo, you can see their looks of adoration and blissful glow.
Setting the scene for this event was Wai’alae Beach Park in Honolulu! Although this spot can be busy, we found a secluded area along the shore for the wedding. The lofty palm trees, beige sand, and foamy cerulean waves created an enchanting backdrop. You can see how impeccable the weather was as well. There was light cloud coverage in the sky, so the sunset was radiant! As the sun continued to set, a spectrum of pastel hues dreamily painted the sky.
Kalei and Chris are an adventurous duo — it was no surprise they had an Oahu wedding on the beach! They got engaged at the top of Yosemite Falls after an eight-hour hike. This moment was extraordinary for them because they visited this spot when they started dating. It was almost as if everything had come full circle! Currently, Chris is a Graphic Installer, while Kalei works for Hawaii’s Department of Education. You can find this lovely couple lounging on the beach in their spare time!
Congratulations, Kalei and Chris! Thank you for trusting us with your intimate wedding day. We wish you a future full of fresh adventures and hope to see you again one day!
