Glam Tropical Fairmont Orchid Wedding

Saturday, 17 September 2016 18:06

Brett and Katie had a perfect modern tropical destination wedding all their friends and family at the Fairmont Orchid on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island. This wedding was so fresh with bold colors and Katie totally killed it in her Vera Wang wedding dress. But, let's talk about this arch. The couple's vision for color and statement design was perfectly executed by Sara Kam of Jots of Thoughts with florals by Grace Flowers. I think the purple bougainvillea was such a smart choice for total impact with out blowing the budget. It was such a treat to shoot photos with it as a backdrop. Hair and makeup perfectly done, as always, by Mara. I loved how the event was a really elegant twist on a Hawaiian holiday with a full luau meal and Polynesian entertainment for their many guests that came from around the country to celebrate with them. Congratulations to Brett and Katie.

As yesterday's news unfolded about the Supreme Court taking on the ruling on gay marriage, I was photographing these two at the Mauna Lani for their Hawaii destination wedding. Taelor and Niki have been together for ten years and are more in love than ever. I was so excited to hear the developments and am confident the court will move forward towards progress. Here's to getting married in Hawaii and staying married in all fifty states! Happy weekend, everyone.

Recent photos from this absolutely stunning couple. I am looking forward to sharing more of this beautiful Hawaii wedding. Kristi and Garrett were married at the Sheraton Kona Resort at Keauhou Bay here on the Big Island.
