Harmony on the Shore – Zianab & Eric’s Oahu Beach Elopement

July 10, 2021


Waimanalo Bay Beach is always beautiful, but it’s especially so when a couple as sweet and in love as Zi and Eric are on the shore. The evening was breezy and shaded for their Oahu Beach Elopement, which created a comfortable atmosphere and soft lighting. Eric has had the joy of visiting the island regularly for the last thirty years, and now he has the immense pleasure to share that joy with the love of his life.

The Oahu Beach Elopement 

Kahu Kawena opened the ceremony with welcoming and heartfelt words. The love shared between our couple was so clear. Zi and Eric tightly held hands throughout the ceremony and deeply gazed into each other’s eyes. When asked, Eric had said he hoped their Oahu Beach Elopement would be loving, happy, relaxed, and beautiful. We can officially say it checked all the boxes!

There was no limit to the happiness on the shore that day, and our beautiful couple was able to simply relax and be in the moment. What more could anyone hope for on their wedding day? We’re so thrilled to help make their dreams come true.

Our Couple’s Story

Zi and Eric met on the web and chatted for a little while to get to know each other. They knew their typing skills had chemistry, but a few weeks later they felt it was time to test out their person-to-person chemistry. They’d planned for a three-mile hike… but then plans changed! That three-mile hike turned into a twelve-hour date with lunch AND dinner!

From that moment on, they were practically inseparable, and their love has only grown deeper and sweeter since. Just look at these incredible shots from Karma Hill Photography. The love between these two is almost tangible.

Our couple had first planned to get engaged in Oahu, but when they thought about it, they realized they wanted to get engaged sooner and elope in Oahu instead. So while they were close to home, Eric took Zi to her favorite beach in Half Moon Bay. “Once there, we poured our hearts out to each other,” Eric said. “Then I got down on my knee and proposed, and she made me the happiest man by immediately answering ‘Yes!’” And we can’t wait for Zi and Eric to have even more adventures as husband and wife!
