To the Moon & Back – Michelle & Anthony’s Hawaii Beach Elopement

June 29, 2021


Last Updated on August 31, 2021 by Karma Hill

Michelle & Anthony traveled from California for their Hawaii beach elopement. Holding hands at the calm shores of Waialae Beach, they vowed to spend the rest of their lives together. We loved being part of this beautiful moment!

We also loved meeting such an awesome couple! Michelle is an engineer – her job is to make sure rockets launch safely. She is a stargazer who practices martial arts and teaches self-defense. Anthony is an army vet who skateboards and also practices martial arts. He’s becoming a woodworker and teaches sword techniques. Individually, they each are so cool. Together they’re amazing!

These spiritual souls met at their Dojo as they were just starting to practice martial arts, and they fell in love because they share the same beliefs and values. Anthony proposed at one of their favorite spots for watching the moon, planets, and stars. How appropriate that their wedding date fell halfway between the summer solstice and June’s full moon! Scroll down to their sunset pictures and see how the moon made its own appearance at their Hawaii beach elopement!

Anthony and Michelle chose not to see each other before the ceremony. We love it when couples choose traditional elements for their Hawaii beach elopement! Karma Hill Photography captured their first look and emotional ceremony with Kahu Kawena.

The tide was high on this beautiful evening, so we picked a quiet spot right off the water’s edge for them to say “I Do.” After the ceremony, the newlyweds walked along the shoreline and enjoyed portraits as the sun set. Then they headed off for a celebration dinner in Waikiki. They were already having a great vacation, and now it was time for them to enjoy their honeymoon! Michelle & Anthony are hard workers who deserve a relaxing and fun time in paradise.

This was a memorable Hawaii beach elopement with a beautiful couple! Congratulations, Michelle & Anthony — Here’s to a lifetime of love and happiness!
