Keith and Kathryn’s Oahu elopement checks all the boxes for an elegant, simple, and beautiful celebration in our eyes! Our sweet couple wanted a relaxed and carefree atmosphere for their special day, and their intimate beach ceremony was exactly that. As Oahu locals, Keith and Kathryn knew exactly what they wanted for their special day on the island they call home…

Island In Our Hearts

Our sweet couple, who know the island inside and out, chose Papa’iloa Beach for their Oahu elopement. It’s truly a North Shore gem with its long stretch of sand and weathered rocks showcasing the rugged beauty of the island. The intimate ceremony was held right by the lapping waves… It was such a dreamy setting for their sacred vow exchange, don’t you think? It was simple, elegant, and, most of all, focused on their love story! Keith actually proposed to Kat on a sunset sail in Waikiki, so it was only fitting for them to tie the knot on another stunning piece of paradise they call home!

As they stood together by the shoreline, Keith and Kathryn looked incredibly happy and so in love. The overcast skies made no difference to the love and joy of their big day. This was their day, and they were enjoying every moment of it! Even Keith’s daughter Harlee, who is four years old and lives with the happy couple, was beaming with joy!

Our happy couple’s wedding attire was perfectly simple yet beachy and minimalistic, with Keith donning a classic white shirt and Kathryn wearing an elegant flowy dress that matched the laid-back vibe of their Oahu elopement. These two had no qualms about walking over the rocks to take advantage of the epic views and scenery for their newlywed portraits! One thing we know for sure is Oahu had a hand in their romance, and these moments capture it all!
