Voted one of the top beaches in the world. Yep, that is where their ceremony took place. The North Shore of Oahu is a treasure. Its white sand beaches, incredible surf (25 ft waves in the winter), and lush jungle provide endless picture perfect opportunities. And there are not enough hours in the day to capture it all. Dana and Adam chose this paradise as the place to share their wedding vows with family and friends. They had taken care of the legalities in a civil ceremony before they left and it’s a good thing they did.
Shortly after the scheduled ceremony start time the marriage officiant was still no where to be found. As guests waited patiently on the beach soaking in the beauty and gentle Hawaiian breeze we learned that the officiant would not be making the ceremony. Now, news like this would cause a wee bit of stress for the calmest of brides. But not Dana. She was cool as a cucumber and brushed off this ‘minor’ detail and quickly came up with a fantastic replacement officiant. One of their friends would perform the ceremony and I have to say he did an amazing job! I would have never guessed this wasn’t his actual profession! He nailed it. Potential crisis averted. I have the best clients and they have awesome friends
We shot until dark and the only light out was the moon. I just couldn’t stop! I had a hard time narrowing down the images for this post, so here are just some of my faves.
Dana and Adam thank you so much for including Darren and I in your fantastic wedding. You treated us like one of your own guests and we truly appreciated it. I hope these images convey the love and beauty of your amazing day.
