We loved so many of this bride and groom’s wedding photos that we decided to do two blogs articles about them! So here is part one! We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed photographing them. PS. Did we mention that we love our jobs?
This lovely couple’s wedding rehearsal was held on a fun filled catamaran sunset dinner cruise. The bride and groom, along with all of their friends and family sailed along the NaPali Coast of Kauai while sipping cocktails and having dinner. We were lucky enough to get a gorgeous rainbow for a good amount of time. A pod of dolphins followed alongside the boat. This magical night ended with a great view of the Kauai sunset .
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.
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.
The groom wore a navy blue suit with a coral colored tie that was patterned with tiny whales while the groomsmen wore light grey suits with mint green plaid ties. The men spent their down time relaxing in the St Regis Bar. I’m sure the bride and bridesmaid who spent hours getting ready were a little envious. Stay tuned for part two if this gorgeous Kauai wedding.
