Sometimes you really never know what to expect from a wedding that’s outdoors, of course until you arrive. the lighting could be harsh, soft, wet, dull, and we sometimes have to work a bit to get it just right….
I knew we would have some magical light and we did…
Now, I always look forward to firsts. I’ve known Erin for a couple years now, but I didn’t really know Chris very well. We got to know each other a bit on the engagement shoot, but Erin kept trying to clue me in the shenanigans that Chris’ friends pull… a bit more on that later. Colins Kauai has an amazing talent for making chocolate. We sampled Colins’ chocolate at the last Bridal Expo and as soon as I put it in my mouth, I knew it was special. After Erin and Colins got to talking a bit, they discovered they were distantly related! The chocolate is so decadently irresistible that Erin, and Chris were inspired to learn everything they could from Colins and his company, Choco’lea. When I tell you the chocolate is divine, it’s an understatement. I love it, and I am hoping the apprenticeship goes fast and we can all enjoy this amazing chocolate everywhere in Hawaii and around the world!
Erin is also the most passionate and amazing dance instructor at Na Maka O Puuwai Aloha and at her own creation Embraceology, where she teaches jazz, hip hop, and hula to children as young as 3 years old!
The music was also amazing! Ben and Maila always provide awesome jams!
What does every pastor forget when they’re consecrating a marriage? A camera, of course! This might actually catch on. I’m really looking forward to seeing footage from the God Cam! I’d like to give kudos and credit to our second shooter Cory Lum for providing great support and coverage! Also to Best Day Ever for the impeccable planning to make the day so beautiful!
I’ll let the photos fill the other parts of the story and the day… please feel free to leave comments!
