Jack And Alyssa- A Quintessential Love Story

We had the pleasure of photographing Jack and Alyssa’s magical day.  They were always meant for each other.  They were high school sweethearts and had known each other for years. When they were planning their wedding they instinctively said ‘beach’ as the ideal location.  So then,  some Googling revealed Kahala Beach. They took a particular liking to the island’s traditions that signified an age-old connection with the culture, peace, and contentment. 

On the day of their wedding, they wanted a tropical touch with an abundance of tiki torches and wildflowers, wearing garlands as jewelry. As a wedding souvenir, they knew they wanted matching kukui nuts leis that would forever remind them of the times they shared here together.  Kukui nut oil was traditionally used for lighting lamps.  The  tree is symbolic for bliss, enlightenment, and joy.  The seeds are collected, polished, and hardened to make beautiful leis and bracelets. 

Jack turned to Alyssa while they were walking trying to appear candid on their photoshoot on Waikiki beach and said ‘I will never forget how you looked today with the sun on your face.’ 

So if you’re searching for the perfect elopement wedding in Hawaii, you have got to check out Kahala Beach. The location, the history, the culture and the incredible scenery will make your “I Do’s” absolutely unforgettable.
