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!”

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!

After the bride had her hair and makeup done at Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki, she got dressed in her wedding gown featuring a feather detailed sweetheart neckline pleated bodice and flowing ruffled skirt. 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.

This beautiful bride changed into a knee length sparkling gold dress for her wedding reception. This dress was prefect for busting a move for their choreographed first dance.  Not only was this bride and groom super sweet, but they also knew how to have a good time and let loose!  Any bride who breaks out into doing the robot during her own wedding is a bride after my own heart!

Here we are with the gorgeous couple! We are extremely lucky and blessed to have such amazing people as our clients.  After 5 years in business, based on Oahu, we continue to be amazed at how we always get to photograph such wonderful couples. Thanks for being AMAZING, everyone!  Ps:  As a side note, you might notice that we have changed our watermarking of photos recently. Don’t worry! We only are putting these watermarks on our blog posts. Our clients receive their printable, full size photos, free from any watermarks on their CD and with a much much less obtrusive watermark on their smaller, web-sized set of photos.  Finally, we wanted to mention that Wendy (shown above with Eric) is only able to photograph weddings every once in a while when her carpal tunnel problems allow, and this was one of those rare occasions!  She spends most of her days editing all of the Hawaii wedding photos and working on the flush-mount wedding album designs!  Our absolutely talented L’amour team members photograph and film all of the rest of the weddings, day in and day out, through the years.

You know how competitive girls can be!  At my own wedding there was a tiny bit of blood shed between two friends trying to snatch the bouquet out of the air.  One could definitely describe some bouquet tosses as a full contact sport!  This one, however, was impressive because of the height this Hawaii wedding guest gained in her successful attempt to catch the bouquet.  This girl has skills!

This mother-of-the-bride was such a fun part of this large wedding party at this private estate wedding on the North Shore of Oahu.  As the wedding party was being introduced at he start of this destination wedding reception, the mother of the bride got the party started by turning on her dancing skills and boogieing her way through the bridesmaids and groomsmen and out to the reception.

First dances are one of the most memorable parts of a Hawaii wedding.  This is the moment the day stops rushing by when the bride and groom get a moment to themselves to look into each others’ eyes with the new excitement of being married.

Here are a few hints to help your first dance as husband and wife go off without a hitch.

Pick your first dance song: Many couples don’t have a special song, so here are some suggestions to help you find the perfect song.  Consider some classic “oldies” love songs that can give  your dance a very timeless and classic feel.  If you share a favorite band, look up the band’s songs and see if there is a good slow song.  If you are getting married in Hawaii, you might want to look into traditional Hawaiian love songs that can really set the mood for your destination wedding reception.

Check the song length: A good length for a first dance at a wedding is anywhere from two to three minutes. Any shorter than that goes by very quickly and may not give enough time for all the moments you would want in photographs from your first dance.  Songs longer than three minutes can lose your guest’s attention and seem like forever to be in the spotlight with everyone watching.

Put a spin on it: Practice dancing with your fiance so you can get the feel for who is leading, where to go, how to turn, or dip. Consider choreographing part of your dance, incorporating your bridesmaids and groomsmen, or using props to add some entertainment value to your first dance.

Have fun: That is L’Amour Photography’s moto for every wedding. People are always asking us for advice on their wedding. While we always have tips and advice for any bride and groom, above all else, we suggest the bride and groom to make their decisions based on what they really want. It’s your wedding day, make it your own!

Myla and Tommy were such a great couple to work with. From the moment we met them, we were struck by how nice they were and how SO in love they were.  We started our day with the beautiful bride as she and her bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done by Beauty By May in their room at the Waikiki Marina Resort at the Illikai in Honolulu.  Myla wore an absolutely gorgeous ivory colored chiffon destination wedding dress by Maggie Sottero Destination with a corset back and an elegant one shouldered strap adorned with fabric flowers.

Oahu Wedding Photographer – Malia and Brian – North Shore Private Estate

Malia and Brian were joined by many of their closest family and friends at a beautiful 4 home estate on the North Shore of Oahu for a private beach ceremony under an amazingly clear blue sky. Malia and Brian used to beauty of the natural Hawaiian surroundings to decorate their intimate wedding party.  Local wild tropical flowers and leaves were used in the bouquets and to decorate the grounds. It was simply stunning and natural.

Destination Wedding Photographers – Stacey and Steven’s Northern California Wedding

Sometime life takes you to interesting places. Stacey & Steven flew us 2,500 miles for a wedding 35 miles from where we grew up in California. We love to travel for weddings and it was a special treat to be so close to where we grew up, yet a part of the Bay Area that neither of us had been before.

Stacey and Steven’s wedding was held at a private estate in Woodside located in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. It was the kind of place that makes you ask, “would you mind if I brought a tent and just live in the backyard?” Surprisingly enough, the owner of the estate said there was a two bedroom cottage on the side of the house and that we were welcome to stay there any time. What luck – we forgot our tent.

Stacey and the girls started the day the way any wedding day should be started; with some mimosas while getting their hair and makeup done at Krush Salon in Los Gatos. There was such a buzz of excitement as the girls started to realize that the big day was really here.

While the Girls wrapped up at the Salon, The guys were “getting ready” (read that as “relaxing”) at the Woodside Estate. The ceremony area was set up, the tables were decorated, and the drinks were going on ice. It was time for the ladies to show up.

The Groom and groomsmen were dressed in black suits with light green striped ties with the bridesmaids in complimenting light green strapless dresses.  The bouquets included white roses, fuscia Gerber Daisies and Queen’s Anne Lace tied with sheer light green ribbon.

Stacey wore an elegant ivory gown with a corset back and an added personal touch with a broach pinned on the side. Her look was finished off by her “something old” pearl earrings and necklace. It was great to see all the bridesmaids and the mother of the bride standing around Stacey in complete awe.

The ceremony was held on the expansive lawn on the edge of a vineyard. The surrounding rolling hills and clear blue skies really reminded us of what we love about northern California.

After the ceremony, the guests were ushered poolside for a cocktail hour while we escaped into the nearby vineyard with Stacey & Steven for portraits.

Wedding Portrait in California's Bay Area

When we came back, the guests were invited to sit at their tables and the wedding party was introduced. The tables were adorned with dark brown satin table clothes, mirrored centerpiece bases, and floral arrangements featuring personalized table signs of Stacey and Steven’s favorite places in the world. The food and drinks were provided by Cafe Primavera Catering which is amongst the best catered food we have ever tasted in any state we have photographed in.

Destination Wedding Reception

With food served and the wine flowing, Stacey’s father took the mic to begin the speeches. Reception speeches are one of my favorite times during a wedding. It is at this time, where family and friends share the most thoughtful and meaningful sentiments. In the course of a lifetime, these are the words that are likely to be the most important that you will ever hear. Stacey and Steven’s family and friend’s speeches were no exception.

California Wedding Bridesmaid

Following the speeches, Stacey & Steven stepped onto the dance floor for their first dance. We were impressed that immediately after the first dance, mother/son, and father daughter dances, almost all the guests rushed the dance floor. The lively guests and wedding party danced all night to the beats of DJ David from Brad Kinney Productions.

Traveling to Northern California for Stacey and Steven’s wedding was definitely a highlight of our year.

Hawaii Wedding Photographer – Anela and Ikaika’s Big Day

I appreciate when brides step out of the limits of a traditional wedding and personalize the wedding so that it is a true reflection of their life and style.  Anela wore a beautiful orange silk sheath dress for her garden wedding. The bouquets were a complimentary mix of yellows and oranges that went perfectly with her dress. We have been seeing more and more orange in wedding color schemes lately. Even Martha Stewart digs this Anela’s color choices as seen in a recent article online.  Ikaika went with a more traditional white aloha shirt paired with his white Oakley sunglasses.  Anela’s daughter serenaded the girls as they got their hair and makeup done by singing Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds. So funny!

We were so happy to meet such a sweet couple and to be part of their big day!
