Julie & Aaron: A North Kohala Wedding

After getting engaged near the Great Lakes in the Upper Midwest, Julie and Aaron knew they wanted their wedding to take place by the water and chose the Big Island, a destination that Julie wanted  to share with her fiance and children. They chose Big Island’s North Kohala as their setting for the special moment. The couple says, “We were so happy with the magic of that day, the location, the timing and all the love.” The ceremony was officiated by Wendy Woldenberg, who also designed the couple’s wedding rings. Floral arrangements were by Ainahua Florals, with catering by Color Catering.

Jennifer & Aaron: Waipio Rim and Anna Ranch

Jennifer Trevino and Aaron Reedy chose the stunning scenery of Hawaii’s Waipio Valley for their wedding. The couple fell in love with the remoteness and beauty of Waipio, and wanted to share it and the region’s ‘old Hawaii’ feel with their guests. The unique Waipio Rim B&B was the venue for the wedding ceremony.

For their reception, Jennifer and Aaron dreamed of one long table in the middle of a yard with family and friends, and Anna Ranch in Waimea proved to be everything they imagined.

The couple wanted to work with local businesses to create the event and chose a variety of vendors from around the island. The wedding was coordinated by Weathered, and officiated by Brian Boshard. Flowers were by Grace Flowers of Honoka’a. The bride’s makeup was by Lilikoi Hair Studio and music was by Lito Arkangel. Catering was by Aloha Mondays, with cake & dessert by Pineapple Bakery and Scandinavian Ice.

Libby & Trevor – Waiki’i Ranch- Engagement and Wedding

This beautiful couple, Libby and Trevor, are residents of the Big Island.  We were lucky enough to photograph their engagement session. The engagement session took place on Waiki’i Ranch, nestled between the grasslands of the mountains Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa.

After photographing in the mountains, we concluded the session with a quick trip to Hapuna Beach; a wonderful way to capture the majestic diversity of this beautiful island.

Nearly half a year later, Libby and Trevor tied the knot.  The ceremony took place on the Waiki’i Ranch Polo Field.  The ceremony began when a cattle trailer arrived, containing the entire wedding party.  The gates opened and the wedding process began.

In the background you can see where the groom’s father surprised the couple by grooming the hillside with the couple’s initials.  As you can see by the photos, it was an amazing day and we really enjoyed documenting this special occasion.
