Gorgeous Blue and Black color scheme for Destination Wedding in Hawaii

Some say that good shoes take you to good places, so it’s fair to say that our bride’s amazing Christian Louboutin shoes took her amazing places. Take a look for yourself!

I don’t even have words for how stunning this satin sheath dress is with scalloped lace border and buttons down the back. The shear material of the front creates an illusion of the lace bodice floating on its own without any straps. So delicate and sexy.  The bride had her hair and make-up done in a suite in the historic Sheraton Moana Surfrider Hotel in Waikiki. The groom and his groomsmen toasted their silver flasks while enjoying their gifts of black sunglasses.  The groom and groomsmen wore classic black tuxedos with black satin bow ties.  The jacket lapels donned white calla lily boutonnieres while the bride held a bouquet of white calla lilies with a black satin ribbon.

The Waikiki ceremony venue was set up in all white with an arch and two pillars decorated with floral designs.  The center aisle featured a damask style design of white orchids.  This scenic venue looks out towards Waikiki beach with views of Diamond head to the side and the setting sun in the evenings.

This destination wedding reception was held in the Moana Surfrider as well. The room was set with five long tables with white linen table cloths accented by black lace runners.  Clear glass vases of various sizes held candles and flowers as the centerpieces.  The wedding cake was a three tier round cake in all white with piping in a lace design.  The personalized cake topper was in black featuring the new Mr & Mrs last name and a heart with their wedding date.  The reception incorporated the black and blue wedding color scheme in the blue up-lighting and black chalkboard signs.

Destination Wedding in Hawaii by L’Amour Photography and Video

If a picture says a thousand words, how much does a video say? Along with capturing the most important moments of the biggest day of your life to hang on your wall, wedding videos really take you back to those moments that you may not have even completely absorbed on the hectic and bustling wedding day.  The soft touches, sweet glances, excitement and emotional voices.  Click play on this Hawaii wedding video to see just what we love most about what we do. This bride and groom on Maui could not be any sweeter.

 

The gorgeous bride wore a light dress perfect for the heat of a destination wedding in Hawaii. The wedding gown had lace and beaded cap sleeves on a v-neck, empire waist gown with a completely lace back.  The bride wore a scalloped necklace along with flowers accenting her soft up-do with loose side curls.

While the bride and bridesmaids were getting ready with hair and makeup and getting dressed they wore coordinating floral silk robes in white and light green. These stylish and smart ladies chose nude colored wedges for their wedding shoes. This is a great choice for a wedding at this venue in Maui since the grounds have gorgeous green expansive landscapes that can be difficult in high heels.   These lucky bridesmaids learned the meaning of “something blue” in the form of Tiffany & Company gifts from the bride!

The ceremony decor included natural wood chairs that had a very organic feel along with a simple wedding arch accented by sheer white fabric and flowers.  The chairs on the aisle side were donned with flowers in glass jars.  The wedding reception tables had burlap runners with a center strip of white lace. Floral centerpieces were held in vintage style vases in clear, golds and peach colors.  Instead of table numbers the bride and groom chose wood signs with the Hawaiian islands’ names.  The card box was raw wood with the couple’s names personalized on the front.  The Tiffany blue color scheme was tied in with the couple’s initials on the reception table next to the guest book.

We all know that photos are often “Photoshopped” to make the sunsets look more amazing than they really were.  Thankfully in such a gorgeous wedding destination as Hawaii we don;t have to mess with what nature gives us. These colorful tropical plants and stunning sunset colors are 100% what the couple experienced that day.  Perfect weather, loving bride and groom, lovely decor, flawless wedding coordination. What more could we ask for? And they call this “work!”

Just Married in Maui – Light Pink Themed Hawaii Destination Wedding Photography

Delicate, feminine, sparkling, elegant. That’s how I can describe this bride’s Hawaii wedding dress. The ivory colored sheath dress had a sheer overlay with capped short sleeves, embroidered with elegant crystal details and beading.  The stunning bride wore her hair in a half up do with lots of volume and loose waves.  The walk down the aisle was made in glittering gold colored Jimmy Choo high heels.  The bridesmaids supported and celebrated the day with the Bride in soft pink colored flowing formal gowns. The dresses were empire waist with draped tops and flowing skirts.  beautiful bride getting hair and makeup done in maui for hawaii wedding lace and beaded wedding dress for wedding in hawaii blush pink bridesmaids dresses for hawaii wedding bridesmaids and bride in blush dresses for hawaii wedding bride gets wedding shoes on in wedding photography gold wedding shoes by jimmy choo in hawaii hawaii beach wedding bride looks out window before ceremony tropical flowers and diamond jewelry for wedding in Hawaii hawaii beach wedding ceremony in maui or oahu

Although there were storm clouds on the horizon, this wedding ceremony was all clear for the bride and groom’s dream Hawaii wedding. On the grassy point, edging out into the ocean, the family and friends sat on gold chivari chairs among the palm trees.  In the distance the guest could see the island of Ko’oholawe and Molokini.  The groom looked stylish in his dark suit without a necktie while his groomsmen wore light gray suits and dark gray neckties.  For the wedding party photos, the bridesmaids held cream colored parasols. The parasol umbrellas make the perfect accessory for a Hawaii destination wedding where wedding guests could experience a range of weather changes from the warmth of direct sunlight to tropical showers.  groom and groomsmen in grey suits at destination wedding in hawaii pink and blush color wedding in hawaii

The wedding flowers coordinated perfectly with the color scheme of this beachfront wedding in Hawaii.  Roses in cream and soft pink were surrounded by leaves with a light pastel green color that are called Dusty Miller leaves. They almost have a frost look to them and are a nice alternative to the normal foliage of wedding bouquets that are bright green.  bride and froom kiss after wedding ceremony in hawaii Hawaii detestation wedding groom and palm tree flower girl taking hawaii wedding photo

Say cheese!  This cute little flower girl was stealing our shots with her Fuji Film Instax instant camera.  We couldn’t help but take a photo of her too.  We gotta support the next generation of wedding photographers! Best wedding sunset on Maui princess cut engagement ring for hawaii wedding The engagement ring was giving us some serious diamond envy! The gorgeous round cut diamond stood in all of it’s glory on a classic setting.  A pave diamond wedding band made the perfect pairing while the groom wore a gold wedding band.  The wedding reception was held under a clear ceiling tent where guests were entertained by hula and Tahitian dancers as well as this fire dancer.  Sparkling chandeliers hung from the tent, lighting the reception in a romantic soft light.  A multi-tiered cake stand held cupcakes for the guests’ sweet tooth with little decorative rose buds on top.  And no wedding in Hawaii is complete without a stunning photo of a kiss at sunset! Congratulations to our happy couple! A big thank you to the amazing wedding planner, Cherise, at The Perfect Wedding Maui who always makes the bride and groom’s  smooth and stress-free dream wedding day come true!

Saying a big mahalo to all of our 2016 bride and grooms, engaged couples and families!

2016 has been a very eventful year for us. Our team grew by one little chubby, toothless future team member. With our world flipped upside down one thing remained a constant throughout the busy year. We had an amazing time celebrating our amazing bride and grooms’ wedding days. What else can we say but that we really have the best job in the world.  We get to photograph and film the happiest most beautiful moments full of love, laughter and happy tears. Who ever said that when you do what you love you never work a day in your life might have been talking about us!

This beautiful bride had her dream wedding at one of our favorite Hawaii wedding venues on Oahu, Turtle Bay Resort! The bride wore a gorgeous lace destination wedding gown with a sweatheart neckline and mermaid train. Her look was accented with pearl jewelry and a pink flower in her hair.  Here is a tip for those of you thinking of also wearing a flower in your hair for your Hawaii wedding: wear the flower on the left side of your hair rather than the right. In Hawaii this is a tradition that shows that you are not single. For all the single ladies, go ahead and wear the flower on the right side to let everyone know you are single and ready to mingle!

We are loving these cute wedding details for this pastel color schemed wedding. Chalkboard style place cards with arrow and heart design held in place by wine corks.  The wedding reception centerpieces also incorporated the wedding corks as they filled the clear glass vases that held the white and light pink flowers.  The oceanfront ceremony guest were greeted by this welcome table with a chalkboard sign that read “Don’t be Blinded by Our Love,” with sunglasses and fans available.  cute place cards settings with hearts arrows and wine cork dont be blinded by our love sign with sunglasses at wedding ceremony on oahu groom wears grey suit and lei at hawaii destination wedding kuilima point at turtle bay hawaii wedding venue bride and groom share first kiss at hawaii wedding at venue turtle bay resort oahu hawaii wedding photography and video by lamour cute wedding cards to bride and groom during wedding ceremony at turtle bay wine bottle centerpiece with corks origami koi fish wedding gift at hawaii wedding in oahu pastel green and pink wedding reception table pastel green and pink wedding theme with wine cork place card pastel color wedding scheme at hawaii wedding first wedding dance at turtle bay in hawaii turtle bay wedding reception in ballroom

 

We have so many highlights from 2016 to share it’s hard to fit them all in! Here is a beautiful wedding venue in Maui, the Four Seasons in Wailea.  This destination bride got ready with her bridesmaids and toasted champagne pool side as they finished up! When you start out the day like that, you know it’s going to be a great day!  The Groom wore a cheeky pair of sandals that said “Game Over” on the soles to the lovely beach wedding ceremony.  Scrabble pieces spelling out “LOVE” made a cute accent to their wedding ring photo.  Their save the date and wedding invitation were so cute and creative with a travel theme. The save the dates even folded up into a paper airplane! Their reception table was accented by a beautiful teal blue satin runner with starfish details to complete the tropical Hawaii feel.

Here are some more beautiful wedding photos from other wedding at Turtle Bay Resort.  Parasols lined the center aisle while chairs were draped with leis for the guests. The wedding reception was held under a clear ceiling tent on the grass lawn where the tiki torches, balloons and paper lanterns decorated the space.  Speaking of sweet, take a look at the photo of their wedding favors of jam jars with personalized labels that read “Jam packed with love” in burlap pouches that read “Love is sweet”. Too cute!

Is there anything more classic and classy than this stunning Tiffany & Company round solitaire diamond engagement ring?  How unique and chic is this sheath wedding dress with sheer cutouts?  This red wedding color scheme was seen in the bride’s lovely bouquet, flower crown, lipstick, nails, and shoes as well as the groom’s tie.

Another one of our favorite wedding venues on Oahu is Haiku Gardens at Haleiwa Joe’s in Kaneohe.  This venue features an open air tahitian style chapel and multiple other garden ceremony venues. With a scenic shot in every direction, it’s not hard to see why so many couples choose this lush tropical site as their wedding venue. The closeup photo below of a bride holding her bouquet by her side captured the incredible fuchsia color flowers that had fallen from their tree and blanketed that area. Just stunning!

While we are lucky to photograph and film so many brides and grooms through out the year, we also love our family, pregnancy or maternity , and engagement photo sessions. It’s always so special for us to get to work with our former couples as they grow together from fiances, to spouses, and parents too! Big mahalo from our entire photo and video team for making 2016 a special year for us!

Blush pink and gold wedding at Sheraton Moana Surfrider in Waikiki Hawaii

Take a look at this gorgeous wedding at Waikiki Beach’s historic hotel the Sheraton Moana Surfrider.  The bride wore a lovely v-cut lace sheath dress with a beaded sash.  The wedding details were blush pink and gold with satin pink table cloths, sparkly gold table numbers, and towering centerpieces featuring candles in glass bulbs hanging from flower adorned branches.  Sound amazing? We think so too!

Hawaii Destination Wedding at Kualoa Ranch and Waikiki

Ok, I am a little biased, but I love kilts and Scottish culture! I was so excited to work on this Scottish couple’s sweet photos. Not only were they absolutely smitten with each other and so cute, but their wedding details and decor were beautiful too! Don’t leave it to me to convince you, just check out their photos here!

Absolutely stunning! The happy groom was dressed in his family’s kilt pattern with a matching vest and necktie.  They headed over to the windward side of Oahu to Kualoa Ranch for their intimate wedding ceremony in the valley.

The entire wedding party with family and friends gathered to eat, drink and enjoy the views from Duke’s restaurant in Waikiki. The bride and groom’s chair was decorated with heart shaped slate signs that read “I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more.” So perfect! To finish off the night the bride and groom cut into their unique Jurassic Park themed wedding cake featuring two little dinosaurs on top of a flowing volcano! To wash it down, the couple chomped into their Lost themed Dharma Initiative brand can shaped cakes.  All of these cute details came together so seamlessly for a truly Hawaii themed destination wedding for this pair from Scotland.

Her groom wore a dark grey suit with a blue paisley necktie and a blue and white pocket square.

This stunning duo had a beach wedding ceremony with their closest loved ones followed by an intimate dinner reception at Sarento’s at the Top of the Ilikai in Waikiki.  Sarento’s is steps off of Waikiki beach at the far end by Hilton Hawaiian Village and the Boat Harbor.  Sitting on the top floor of the Ilikai Hotel, restaurant goers dine on Italian food while taking in the romantic ambiance and scenic ocean views. It’s no wonder this newly wed couple chose this intimate setting to celebrate with their guests.

From this beautiful open air wedding ceremony chapel you can hear the waves crashing on the rocks, spot surfers out on the waves, and witness one of the best views of sunsets on Oahu that you will find!  It’s no wonder why this is a popular location for Hawaii weddings and one of our favorite venues for our Hawaii wedding photography and video team.

A few days after this absolutely stunning destination wedding on Oahu we did a “Post wedding photo session” or “Trash the Dress” session on the North Shore of Oahu. These are really great opportunities to get more wedding portraits at various locations and under much less stress and hustle that happens on the day of the wedding ceremony and reception.  Our cute couple was able to get more wedding photos with the ability to sit and walk along the sand and get some photos with extra cute touches like the surf board. We hope you have liked these wedding photos and video as much as our photography and video team did capturing these moments! We seriously have the sweetest couples!

We love capturing all of the little details that the bride and groom excitedly chose in the months leading up to their wedding. The perfect shoes to dance the night away. Gorgeous wedding bouquet with colors and textures that add to the overall look of the bride, bridesmaids, groom, groomsmen and centerpieces! The right amount of sparkly and sentimental jewelry to make the bride feel and look as special as she should on her wedding day.  The wedding rings are always a fun item to photograph as they are so personal and will be with the couple for the rest of their lives as the symbol of their commitment to marriage.  We can’t forget special moments like the one below of the cute little flower girl covering her eyes as the bride and groom had their first kiss during their ceremony at the Crystal Chapel in Koolina!

We suggest to our couples an engagement session if possible a few months before their big day. This gives the couples beautiful photos to include on their wedding website or on their save the dates! Aside from those great reasons, it give the future bride and groom an opportunity to test out how they feel in front of the camera and gives our photography team the ability to work with the couple before the wedding day.  It is always great if the couple is already familiar with and comfortable with the Hawaii wedding photography and video team by the time the big day comes!  It’s not everyday that two people are followed around by so many photographers and videographers, so this little “practice session” can really help with the jitters.  We also can add-on a portrait session to any wedding package for an after wedding or “trash the dress” session. This can be great for couples who have a tight timeline on the wedding day and want more photos.  An after wedding session can also be great because the stress and rush of the wedding day has passed and the bride and groom can really be themselves with no one waiting on them and no schedule to adhere to or aunties and uncles grabbing them for hugs all night long!  Wedding portraits and engagement photos at the beach in Hawaii Best Hawaii wedding photo and video team L'Amour Photography Underwater photo of bride and groom after Hawaii wedding on Oahu by L'amour photography and video Hawaii maternity or hapai session on the north shore of Oahu maternity photo shoot on Hawaii by L'Amour destination weddings and family portraits at the beach in Hawaii Family portraits on Oahu Hawaii by L'Amour Photography and Video Family photos in Hawaii by Lamour at a beach with palm trees on Oahu cute kids at family portraits on the beach in Hawaii by L'Amour Family portraits on the beach on Oahu Hawaii with mother and daughter in white bohemian dresses Oahu Hawaii family portraits at the beach with sunset and palm trees

Our Photography and Video team focuses on weddings the majority of the year, but when we get a chance we like to photograph engaged couples visiting Hawaii for engagement session, or families who want to capture memories of their special trip to Hawaii.  We are always excited to watch our couples grow from fiances to bride and groom and eventually contact us for maternity sessions and family. We hope you enjoyed these photos! If you’d like to see more please check out our Facebook, Instagram, and YELP pages!

When I saw the gorgeous mehndi painted hands of our bride, I was so excited to photograph them!  We love how our wedding couples have found ways to bring their cultural or religious traditions all the way out to Hawaii with them and allow us to capture the diversity of how love is celebrated all over the world. We have so many photos of these beautiful traditions that I cant wait to share with you! Here is one that I just am in awe of.  What a beautiful way to start a new life together, in these lovely hands.
