Hawaii Wedding Photographer – L’Amour’s Daily Shot of Love – Barefoot

This Hawaii Destination Wedding couple left their beach ceremony with sandals in hand as they headed out to their waiting limo. When planning your destination wedding or beach wedding, shoes are a definite item to ponder over. Well, not so much for the men, since their decisions are fairly straightforward, but for the brides, bridesmaids and even guests, choosing the right shoes for the wedding can be a fairly important decision. We have seen brides hobbling along throughout their wedding because their wedding shoes, while beautiful, were just not right for the venue which their Hawaii wedding takes place.  We’ve seen guests’ heels sinking into grass, trying to maneuver rocky shores, or struggling to walk up and down steep slopes.

Here are some tips and tricks of savvy Hawaii destination wedding brides we have picked up over the years. For a garden wedding where there will definitely be grass lawns and garden paths, wedged high-heels are a great choice to keep the beloved height benefits of heels but with added stability.

Another great idea for brides and bridesmaids who want heels for their Hawaii wedding, SoleMates high heel protectors that you snap on the tip of your heel to add a wider area to balance on. Theses brilliant little inventions can be taken on and off your favorite pair of heels when needed (much better than sinking into the grass)! These probably wont help much on the sand, so you may have to opt for sandals.

Another great option for beach wedding brides is having one nice pair of heels for the indoor portions of your ceremony or reception and one pair of sandals for the beach. This way, you get the best of both worlds and don’t have to reek havoc on your soles and your perfectly manicured toes by going barefoot on beaches and exposing them to rocks, pebbles, and twigs.

Hawaii Wedding Photographer – L’Amour’s Daily Shot of Love – Lanikai Beach

There are so many fun things to mention about this wedding, we will have to save most for this Hawaii destination wedding bride and groom’s blog article. This whole wedding party was just full of love, happiness and positivity.  We are so lucky to say that we have been blessed with wonderfully sweet clients over the years. This lovely couple was so wonderful to work with and even sent us home with a bottle of their favorite champagne from a winery near their home in California! Mucho mahalo!

What better way to start the new year than to get married! Alicia and Lee were married at world renowned Lanikai Beach on December 31, 2008.  Ranked amongst the best beaches in the world, Lanikai Beach was the perfect backdrop for Alicia and Lee’s wedding ceremony.  Alicia and Lee were surrounded by their closest friends and family as they exchanged vows and rings.

I loved all of the sentimental details of this wedding! Alicia looked beautiful in her mother’s wedding dress and incorporated her support for the US Marines into the ceremony and reception. Her garter belt was in camouflage print with the Marine Corps symbol on a charm in the center. The favors were accented by photos of Alicia with Lee in uniform.

The beautiful, two tier, round fondant cake was made by Vikki at Sunshine’s Cake Creations. Eric and I never turn down cake at a wedding and are becoming some-what of wedding cake connoisseurs. This cake stands out in our minds as one of the best we have had so far. Perfectly decorated, sweet, creamy, and strawberries in the filling! Love it!
