Time Stood Still – Marielle & Jonathan’s Oahu Elopement

“He knows how much I love this island, and he has never been, so it was only right we have an Oahu elopement,” Marielle told us before her big day! She has been many times, but since Jonathan has never been, she was thrilled to show him the island and celebrate their wedding with their closest friends and family! Let’s re-live their beautiful day with them through our favorite highlights…

Our delightful couple met on a dating app in 2020 and hit it off instantly…it was pretty unexpected, but it was the best outcome – it was meant to be! These two love the water and the beach. They joke about getting a small cottage by the beach and escaping it all! But an Oahu elopement isn’t too bad either, we think! And they couldn’t have asked for a better day…

And to the cheers of their friends and family, they said, “I do!” Our beautiful newlyweds radiate happiness and love in these photos, don’t you agree?

Let’s talk about this lighting for a minute… how stunning are these first intimate portraits as newlyweds? The light is so soft and golden, illuminating the tropical scenery…

This scenic location is Papailoa Beach, and it offers the privacy and natural beauty that our beautiful couple dreamed of for their Oahu elopement!

Marielle looks so radiant! We love her beachy yet elegant off-the-shoulder dress – it was perfect for a beach wedding!

As the sun lowered in the sky, these two shared many laughs together…it was like a dream that they didn’t want to end!
