Ali and I traveled to Hana, Hawaii on the island of Maui to photograph Jeremy and Leilani's wedding. What an absolutely incredible experience!!
We first met Jeremy and Leilani in Anacortes (near Seattle) when we photographed their Engagement Session. We've had a blast getting to know them, and their families!
The wedding took place on a beautiful piece of land overlooking Koki beach just outside of the town of Hana. Ali and I arrived at the house while everyone was getting ready so we could photgraph the guys before the wedding....they were nowhere to be found, but about 15 minutes later Jeremy and his best man Dean wandered up from the beach with big smiles on their faces and freshly speared fish in their hands. In no time at all they went from surf shorts and speared fish to tux's and ties. Hawaii time is a very real thing.... And that's how the day went..... Jeremy and Leilani both just seemed to relax and let it unfold the way that it was meant to. Immediately after the ceremony we headed down to the beach with the wedding party...just as we stepped on the sand the skies opened and it began to rain. I looked around expecting panic but all I saw were smiles. Leilani just kicked off her shoes and headed out to the beach without a care in the world. In paradise it only rains for a short time, you get wet, then you dry off and everything seems even more beautiful. Jeremy and Leilani's wedding day was perfect. Two people who love each other very much stood up in front of their families and friends and made a promise to each other.....Jeremy and Leilani are MARRIED!!
Ali and I feel so blessed to have been a small part of such an amazing experience in such an extraordinary place.
