Can I just say... that destination weddings might be my favorite thing right now.
Iliki and Rob were married in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. They were married on a some what secluded beach, away from the city and scramble of tourists. With blue waters, white sand, and black rocks lining the shore, their destination wedding was all it was supposed to be. On top of this, their reception over looked the ocean as well as clouded mountains with gushing greenery.
As the ceremony began a circle of clouds surrounded them creating beautiful lighting. If you are a photographer and are reading this, you know how wonderful that sounds.
This wedding was just absolutely gorgeous, so well planned and I felt so welcome from the moment I arrived. I wasn't just invited as their photographer, I was invited as a friend and guest. I took my fiance with me and we traveled the beaches, explored the island, snorkeled and took in the perfection.
I have often heard that when it rains on your wedding day, its considered a blessing, and this is exactly what the Hawaiian locals believe. Well this lucky couple got to experience that blessing. It poured and poured and they danced and danced in the rain. They didn't care, they sprayed champagne, laughed, loved, and kissed over and over again. I felt so unbelievably blessed to be apart of this wedding. I know their love will continue to flourish. Thanks Rob and Iliki for letting me join in on the fun. I will always and forever remember this amazing trip.
