An Absolute Dream – Laura & Eddie’s Oahu Elopement

July 26, 2021


Last Updated on May 1, 2024 by Karma Hill

Laura & Eddie told us that an Oahu Elopement sounded like a dream. They were never interested in a big wedding. Instead they wanted something relaxed and elegant in a beautiful setting. After months of planning, they finally had their dream ceremony. Surrounded by sparkling blue water and dramatic mountains, Laura & Eddie vowed to love each other for the rest of their life! We’re so glad we got to be a part of it, and we’re excited to share these photos!

About Our Couple

Laura & Eddie met in trialing times and in an unlikely place. They were strangers when they had family members suffer strokes at the same time. Laura’s grandfather and Eddie’s father shared a hospital room, separated by a curtain. They ended up seeing each other a lot as they visited the hospital, and soon a shared experience turned into shared love.

These kind souls both work in healthcare administration back home in Florida. They love spending time with their family and their sweet dogs. We’re sure everyone was cheering them on from back home!

Laura & Eddie stayed in Hawaii for 10 days while they were here for their Oahu elopement. First they enjoyed time in Oahu, and then relaxed in Maui too!

Tropical Elegance for an Oahu Elopement

We love Laura & Eddie’s wedding style! They wanted to have a relaxed vibe that was true to the tropical setting. However, they also wanted a touch of elegance and classic wedding style. We think they did a great job of balancing the two! Eddie’s light blue suit and Laura’s chic gown have a timeless look that complemented the look of Waimanalo Beach. And Laura’s floral from Sweet Blossoms Hawaii added the perfect tropical touch!
