A misty cloud draped over the island, but the ocean still glowed a luminous aquamarine as Karen and Andrew said: “I do.” We love how Oahu beach weddings can be gentle and untamed at the same time. The ocean was roaring, but the sand was as soft as ever beneath our couple’s toes. And the mist on the horizon created a gorgeous fade-effect along the valley peaks.
Karen & Andrew flew out of a 30 degree Chicago cold-snap, so an overcast day in Oahu was plenty warm for our jet-setting couple. And, of course, it was nothing short of beautiful! Located on the east side of the island, the shoreline of Waimanalo Beach extends for nearly a mile along the windward coast, carving a path between the Watershed Forest Reserve and the crystalline seascape.
Together for over 13 years, Karen & Andrew were excited to tie the knot and make their marriage official… although it was clear from the start that these two have had an unbreakable bond for many years. Just look at the way Andrew takes in the sight of his radiant bride!
Wearing a dusky rose with Greek-inspired draping, Karen is Aphrodite just moments after she stepped from her shell to walk the shore. We can’t get enough of the subtle pops of pink! From her flower crown to her wild bouquet, from her ruffled empire waist to her coral lip, Karen pulls of Boho-chic with an added bonus of color!
How sweet is this shot?! Supported by Andrew’s parents and Karen’s son, our couple was basking in the warmth of love on their Special Day.
And following the big moment, we took advantage of Waimanalo’s wide range of scenery to capture a set of gorgeous Oahu couple’s portraits… keep scrolling for all the beautiful photos!
