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!”

Bride and Groom sunset photo on wedding in Waikiki Hawaii

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.

The cute little flower girls wore tulle dresses with shades of purple and helped carry this sign announcing “Here comes the love of your life” as the bride and her father prepared to walk down the isle of the Turtle Bay Resort Pavillion Chapel . 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!

Guests were greeted with seating cards of teal and coral wave shaped tags tied onto starfish.

St Regis Princeville Wedding in Kauai by Oahu Wedding Photographers 2

Right after the beachfront wedding ceremony, we went around the gorgeous grounds of the St Regis to photograph the bride and grooms wedding portraits.  We were struck by the many stunning locations and really loved the sparkling glass bulb chandelier of the lobby as well as the graphic decor in the front of the main entrance to this amazing resort.

This Hawaii wedding reception was held in the  St Regis Bay Terrace overlooking the sun setting over Hanalei Bay. This Hawaii wedding venue features a relaxing lounge area with an attached ballroom giving this venue indoor and outdoor versatility. The wedding reception carried the same classic beach theme with warm gold up-lighting  sand filled centerpieces with large shells holding the tropical green and white flowers.

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.

This lovely couple’s wedding rehearsal was held on a fun filled catamaran sunset dinner cruise.

The setting for this Hawaii wedding was the Kauai wedding venue, the St. Regis Princeville.  The St.Regis Princeville is located on the North Shore of Kauai overlooking the famous Hanalei Bay.  Stepping into the lobby for the first time, guest are met with a mix of  Hawaiian and sophisticated classic decor with wood accents and tropical flowers.  The cascading glass bulb chandeliers are such a striking feature,  we found ourselves admiring them more than just once.  Conde Nast found  was also rather impressed with this spectacular resort and listed the St. Regis on it’s 2011 Gold List among the world’s finest properties.

The bride started her Hawaii wedding day getting her hair and makeup done at the St. Regis’ Halele’a Spa then headed up to her bridal suite to slip on her lace and tulle wedding dress and sweet mint green wedding shoes.

Hawaii Bride holds succulent bouquet and wedding rings Green and white orchids were accompanied by beautiful succulents in this tropical wedding bouquet with a modern twist.  We loved the succulents so much and thought they would make a perfect backdrop for the wedding ring photos. The bridesmaids wore complimentary soft mint green sheath dresses with a coral colored  sash.

Oahu Hawaii Beach Wedding Photography – Makapu’u Beach

Simple. Laid-back. Beautiful. This Makapuu Point wedding was a complete reflection of their style.  The couple was joined by only 10 close family and friends at the Makapuu lookout point. The sunset ceremony was simple and sweet with the minister reading Bible verses and offering the bride and groom communion. We loved how laid back this wedding was.  The bride proved that you don’t need an elaborate wedding gown to be a beautiful bride.  She looked stunning in a short white cotton eyelet dress with a satin sash. The groom wore a black and tan Hawaiian Aloha shirt with khaki shorts. I try really hard to not tear up at weddings, ESPECIALLY when I’m the photographer, but the bride and groom were so clearly emotional while exchanging their vows that it was hard not to tear up! Thank you for letting us be your wedding photographers at your intimate and touching ceremony! We wish you the very best!

Oahu Wedding at the Moana Surfrider Hotel – Honolulu, Hawaii – Hannah and Andrew

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Davies!!!

Hannah and Andrew traveled half way around the world from Wales (in the United Kingdom) to Oahu for their beach wedding.  Eric and I had a blast being their photographers on their big day. Not only were Hannah and Andrew a fun couple to work with, their wedding party was incredibly lively and hilarious.  Eric and I kept thinking to ourselves, “Can you believe our lives? We are shooting a beautiful wedding in Hawaii and are surrounded by amazingly fun people. Life can’t get much better!”

Oahu Wedding Photographers at the Moana Surfrider Hotel Diamond Lawn in Honolulu, Hawaii

Hannah and the girls got ready for the big day in a suite at the Moana Surfrider Hotel while Andrew and the boys were getting ready at the nearby Ohana East Hotel. Hannah and Andrew had a beautiful wedding ceremony at the Moana Surfrider Hotel on the Diamond Lawn. Their closest family and friends traveled from all over the UK and United States to watch Hannah and Andrew exchange vows and rings.

Hannah and Andrew were hoping for a bright and sunny wedding in Hawaii since they hadn’t seen a real summer back in Whales in the last 2 years! Hannah kept in good spirits in the face of a rainy forecast for her Hawaiian beach wedding.  Her optimism, and all of us keeping our fingers crossed, must have paid off because there wasn’t a cloud in the sky during their ceremony.

Hannah and Andrew took a little road trip with Eric and I to Iroquois Point Beach where we photographed their wedding portraits at sunset. The newly overcast sky made for an awesome backdrop as the sun set.

Hannah and Andrew had an intimate reception in the Roof Garden on the 6th floor of the luxurious Moana Surfrider Hotel.  Family and friends feasted on a delicious dinner and laughed and cried during the heartfelt speeches.  And to top the night off, the whole wedding party sang Happy Birthday to Eric, whose birthday was fast approaching at midnight.  Eric was so touched that the first people to wish him Happy Birthday this year were the happy wedding party! We could not have hoped for a better start to Eric’s birthday!

Thank you  to Hannah and Andrew and their wonderful wedding party! It was our pleasure to be your wedding photographers!
