Sarah & Sean–Dreamy day-after wedding session at Lanikai Beach, Oahu, Hawaii

Flying all the way to Hawaii to photograph Sarah and Sean’s Waikiki wedding, how could we not venture away from the hub and explore some other areas?  When Sarah suggested Lanikai beach as the destination for their day-after wedding session, we immediately were up for it.  We’re convinced this is probably one of the most beautiful beaches in the world – actually we’re not the only ones who thinks so because National Geographic also rated it in their top 10 beaches of the world.  Imagine endless white sand, turquoise calm waters, and the famous Mokulua Islands in the background (which we actually kayaked to on a previous day).

We thought it would be awesome to pay homage to Hawaii’s surf culture with some cool vintage surfboards.  Previous to the wedding, we stayed in Kailua (located right next to Lanikai) and discovered a great company called Hawaii Beach Time which rents and delivers all sorts of beach gear.  Since we had such a great experience renting our kayak from them, we decided to call Ryan up to see if he had any vintage surf boards around.  He went out of his way to find us some amazing ones and delivered them to our shoot location – we can not say enough amazing things about this company!  Thanks Hawaii Beach Time!!!

Sarah bought a different wedding dress for this photoshoot that was more beach friendly as her wedding day dress was quite extravagant.  We had an amazing time photographing these two in the dreamy dusk light in such a relaxing and beautiful environment.  What a perfect way to end a phenomenal destination wedding.  Thanks for choosing us as your photographers, Sarah and Sean!  It was an experience of a lifetime!

Sarah & Sean: Destination Paradise Wedding
Ocean Crystal Chapel & Gazebo at the Hilton Hawaiian Village &
The Moana Surfrider, Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii

Sarah and Sean originally contacted us way back in January 2011 regarding their Okanagan wedding in August 2012.  We love brides who book us so far in advance!  When we received an email last July from Sarah explaining how she was considering Hawaii instead and wanted to know if we would still be her photographers, we replied an enthusiastic “YES!”  Fast forward to this August and we found ourselves flying over the blue Pacific on our way to some very beautiful islands in the sea.  This was our very first time to Hawaii so we made sure to schedule in some much needed vacation time.  Hawaii definitely lived up to our expectations – if we could describe it in one word, it would be paradise.  So utterly beautiful.

When Sarah and Sean’s wedding day arrived it was a perfect tropical day.  Sarah and her bridesmaids got ready at the beautiful historical Moana Surfrider Resort in Waikiki, while Sean and his Groomsmen got ready at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort.  The ceremony took place at the romantic Ocean Crystal Gazebo and Chapel at the Hilton.  We loved how Sarah and Sean’s wedding was an intimate celebration with only their closest friends and family.  After the ceremony everyone headed over to the Moana Surfrider Hotel for a beautiful outdoor dinner underneath the banyan tree which dates back to the late 1800’s.  It’s truly an amazing tree and was selected out of the entire Hawaii state as the Millennium Landmark Tree which protects one significant tree from each state in the United States.  As dinner was served, relaxing acoustic Hawaiian music played in the courtyard with traditional hula dancing.

After dinner, Sarah and Sean headed over to the Mai Tai Bar at the Royal Hawaiian Resort for drinks in a private cabana beachside along the Waikiki strip.  On the short journey walking down the Waikiki strip to the Royal Hawaiian we weaved through colourful night life and found some…parrots!  Ok, that might have been the most random and favourite part of the day.  With the waves hitting the sand and Waikiki’s twinkling lights in the distance, Sarah and Sean ended the most perfect day in paradise.  Thank you, Sarah & Sean, for letting us capture your romantic Hawaii wedding!  Congratulations!!!
