I have been dying to blog about Miki and Joel’s wedding because their wedding was definitely one of the most beautiful weddings I have seen at Lanikuhonua. Miki and Joel were a really fun and down to earth couple to work with. They had a very nice theme for their wedding, modern chic Caribbean beach, which was carried through from the ceremony to the reception. Miki wore a wedding dress by Jin Wang and looked stunning and so comfortable in it. Her cute little shell sandals were also perfect for her beach ceremony. Miki’s did an amazing job making sure no wedding details were left out. Form the burlap wrapped invitation and the use of driftwood in her ceremony décor, to the giant capiz shell chandeliers hung below her tent and the succulent embellishments on her table top, all the wedding details were absolutely perfect! Miki and Joel’s wedding felt so comfortable and earthy, but chic and refined at the same time. I also had the honor of working with Ray of Apertura Photography (based in Southern California). For Lanikuhonua, a super popular location on Oahu, Ray was able to capture the essence of this location like I’ve never seen it before. It’s so refreshing to see the beauty of Hawaii through the eyes of mainland photographers. It reminds me again of how lucky I get to work in such a beautiful state. Yvonne did an amazing job with the flowers (she always does!); they truly exude the clean and modern beach feel Miki was trying to create. Congratulations to the Kuwaharas!
