Have you ever heard of high school sweethearts who went the distance and got married? Well, that’s exactly what happened with Josh and Samantha! They met in World History class in high school, and after almost a decade together, they tied the knot at their Oahu venue wedding!

Samantha was in love with the island when she visited with her mom, and she thought, “I’d love to get married here one day!” Since Josh’s family has roots in Oahu, he and Samantha knew it was the perfect place to celebrate their love story. It was the icing on the cake, and a dream come true!

Their big day at Paradise Cove was an intimate and laid-back affair, full of love and happiness. The fresh green and tropical colors of their beach wedding perfectly complemented the island’s natural splendor.

As they exchanged their vows on the sandy beach surrounded by their loved ones, Josh and Samantha looked so natural and at ease. Their love shines through every photograph from their wedding day!

After their sweet Oahu venue wedding ceremony, our happy newlyweds snuck off with our photographer to capture a few inimate moments by the water’s edge. Samantha and Josh are so ready for their future together after almost ten years of dating! (A lot of that was long distance too!) Once Josh is finished his commitment to the Air Force, they are hoping to move back closer to family to start a family! But for now, they embraced the present moment and their newlywed bliss!
