All the way from Louisiana, this happy bride and groom came all the way across the Pacific Ocean to Oahu for their destination wedding on the beach at Makapuu. This private ceremony consisted of just our photography team, the officiant, and a musician, and of course the bride and groom! It does not get more private than that! With a private beach ceremony in Hawaii and a large wedding reception back home, this couple had the best of both worlds.
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.
She honestly looked like she stepped straight out of a bridal magazine.
Her bridesmaid wore strapless fuchsia dresses. Tommy and his groomsmen wore simple white shirts and light khaki pants. Tommy wore a traditional wedding lei of maile-style ti leaf and white orchids. The group was whisked away in a stretched limo to Makapuu Beach for a private beach ceremony.
After a gorgeous beach wedding ceremony and a portrait session with the family, whole bridal party, we had a portrait session with just the bride and groom, just in time for the sun setting behind the mountains.
The bride and groom’s destination beach wedding ceremony was followed by a reception at the Top of Waikiki.
This restaurant is located on the 18th floor of the Waikiki Business Plaza in Honolulu. The Top of Waikiki restaurant makes a full 360 degree rotation every hour with stunning eagle-eye views of Waikiki Beach and Honolulu.
We had such a great time with this wedding. Thanks and congratulations to Myla and Tommy and thank you for having L’Amour Photography as your Hawaii Wedding Photographer!
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!
