Cat and Dean hold a special place in their hearts for the Big Island of Hawaii and try to come to the Kona Coast as much as they can from their home in Idaho. It seemed natural for them to capture their new status as a married couple on Waialea Beach (Beach 69). I loved hanging out with this funny and smart couple who are both self employed in really cool careers (organic farming and natural health). Getting to hang with such interesting and fun people is a major highlight of this work. Are you looking to capture your love with some special photographs in Hawaii? Call me. xoxo

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.

Sara and Beth designed a beautiful reception right in the heart of Kailua-Kona at Daylight Mind. I will share more soon of this beautiful wedding.

Anika is from the Big Island's Hilo side so it was a real homecoming for her to tie the know with her amazing partner, Ryan. They had a lovely wedding ceremony at a private home in Keauhou mauka. Congratulations to these two! I look forward to sharing more from this very special Hawaii destination wedding.

This beautiful family had a lovely beach elopement at the Four Seasons on the Big Island of Hawaii. Their guest of honor looked adorable in his little suit. Congratulations and Aloha!

Adam and Amy came from their home in New Zealand to the Big Island of Hawai'i for their very special destination wedding at the Hokukano Bayhouse at Keauhou Bay.  Adam's family all made trip from NZ to Kona for the big event, and Amy's from the cold winter of Minnesota. They were so lovely and I had a great time getting to know this beautiful couple and all of their loved ones. Vintage and Lace teamed up with Passion Flowers by Nalani made for a flawless evening and gorgeous styling, which I look forward to sharing in a future post. For now, I wish Amy and Adam all the best, and lots of Aloha!

Look at the light at the Holualoa Inn for John and Tracy's Hawaii destination wedding! A very special venue for a different feel of the Big Island's beauty in stunning Holualoa and this sweet couple had the most beautiful sunset for their outdoor ceremony. Happy Holidays to all from Bikini Birdie Photography.

Hannah and David had the most romantic Hawaii wedding at the Four Seasons Hualalai on the Kona Coast of the Big Island. Their elegant ceremony on the beach was the perfect way to tie the knot away from the crowds of home. The sky the evening of their wedding was the wildest pink color and made for the perfect backdrop to their special day. Congratulations to Hannah and David!

Big Island Destination Wedding

Geoff and Mei had a sweet destination wedding on the Big Island of Hawaii at the lovely Mauna Lani Bay Hotel on the Kona coast. Congratulations to Geoff and Mei!

I don't  know where to start about how sweet and genuine these two are (and beautiful!). I am so happy Kristi and Garrett found each other and invited me to be a part of such a special day. They decided to have a destination wedding on the Big Island after visiting the chapel at the Kona Sheraton and falling in love with the setting. Their ceremony and reception was dripping with love and emotion on a day with record high surf. Congratulations to you two!
