Hawaii Wedding Photographer – Wedding at Haiku Gardens and Haleiwa Joe’s on Oahu

There is no denying that this gorgeous couple is absolutely in love! The excitement was definitely in the air when we arrived at Haiku Gardens in Kaneohe, Oahu to begin photographing this wedding.  This stunningly beautiful bride wore a knock-out mermaid shaped dress with rouching on the bodice and a dramatic flared train.  We love how this stylish bride wore a classic pearl necklace and an orchid in her hair to complement her striking wedding dress.  More and more of our Hawaii destination wedding brides have been styling their hair with a flower, always on the left side signifying that you are now a married woman, in lieu of a wedding veil.

This destination wedding couple had their wedding ceremony in the open air Tahitian Chapel at Haiku Gardens followed by an intimate dinner with their guests at Haleiwa Joe’s Restaurant at  the same location in Kaneohe on Oahu.  If you have never been to Haleiwa Joe’s for dinner or their popular Sunday Brunch, you really have to! Ridiculously large mai tais, the best prime rib we have ever had on Hawaii, delicious local favorites like edamame and ahi poke, and an array of locally caught fresh fish plates are just some of the reasons we always make it a point to bring our visiting friends and family members here.  Aside from the food, just checkout that view! Simply breathtaking!

Hawaii Wedding Photographers – L’Amour’s Daily Shot of Love – Coconuts for DIY brides

Hawaii Wedding DIY Coconut and moss Ring Pillow
Hawaii Wedding DIY Coconut and moss Ring Pillow

We absolutely love to see our brides use their creativity in their wedding design, decor, and details. Many of our past brides have shown their incredible creative talents in designing their own invitations, themes, centerpieces, favors, and in the above shown photo, ring pillows.

This green ring pillow was made of all natural materials including a coconut, moss, and natural twine to tie the rings. This DIY bride added a personal touch to this creative ring pillow by carving out the bride and groom’s initials on the side.

The bride and creator of this ring pillow wowed her guests with many other DIY designs for the tropical themed Hawaii wedding. The wedding invitation for this Hawaii wedding at a private estate in Kaneohe was beautifully designed as a postcard with a vintage map of the Hawaiian Islands.

Still searching for the perfect details and decor for your Hawaiian Wedding? Here are some wedding tips to add a tropical twist to your Hawaii wedding decor:

  • Use whole coconuts or whole pineapples to line your ceremony isle or walkways.
  • Use whole lychees to add texture to your centerpieces.
  • Hand out bright colored sunglasses or sandals for your guests as a fun and useful wedding favor.
  • Incorporate sand into your centerpieces or even at the base of your cake (use brown sugar to get the look of sand, but not the taste!)
  • Use vintage style hawaiian postcards as place cards or table cards.
  • Use local tropical flowers to accent place settings.
  • Set up a bubble blowing station for kids or even a shave ice stand!

Oahu Portrait Photographers – Min and Juan’s Hawaii potraits – Waikiki Beach

Min and Juan had a long list of things they wanted to do when they went on vacation to Oahu Hawaii. Snorkeling, parasailing, laying out, shopping, and portraits. Min actually scheduled a portrait session for her and her husband of five years a surprise for him! What a cool surprise! We photographed around the newly reopened Royal Hawaiian Hotel , Sheraton Waikiki, and the beach near Hale Koa.

We had such a great time photographing this cute couples portraits we even hung out a bit after the session and talked about their hometown of Sacramento (near my alma mater, UC Davis) and, of course, the recent “Jon and Kate Plus 8” drama! It’s true I have been sucked in!

Thanks Min and Juan for the fun afternoon in Waikiki! Have a great snorkeling trip tomorrow!

Michelle and Wayne came all the way from Sin City Las Vegas, Nevada for their wedding at Hilton Hawaiian Village’s Crystal Chapel.  Unfortunately we weren’t available to shoot their wedding, but we did get the opportunity to shoot their “post-wedding portraits”/”engagment photos.” Michelle and Wayne were so great to work with.  We hiked around the Blowhole Lookout and Sandy Beach and got some really awesome shots. This may be one of our favorite ring photos we have ever done.

We wish you of happy years together! Best wishes from Eric and Wendy at L’amour Photography.

Hawaii Wedding Photographer – Kaori and David’s Big Day- Haiku Gardens

We’ve been to some really fun receptions, but Kaori and David’s family and friends are in a league of their own! Kaori’s close friends even choreographed a dance routine involving fake mustaches, suspenders, balloon animal making, and spinning buckets of water! If that isn’t an equation for a lively reception and awesome pictures, I don’t know what is.

This amazing wedding was held at Haiku Gardens in Kaneohe on the windward side of Oahu.  Haiku Event Coordinator Tina Scotty made sure every detail was perfect.  Merryl of Island Treats Creations designed and set up the beautiful decorations and favors. The wedding favors were petite jars of Hawaiian honey packaged in brown paper boxes with a heart closure and orange ribbon trim.  Kaori’s bouqet was made up of various tropical hawaiian flowers with vibrant orange, yellow, green and purples.  Kaori wore a simply gorgeous ivory wedding gown with a strapless sweetheart neckline.  Kaori’s viel was the perfect compliment to her stunning dress with  scalloped edges thinly lines with ribbon.  David wore a simple but sharp looking short sleeve ivory aloha shirt with a light pink tie.

Oahu Military Wedding Photographer – Lanikai Beach – Alicia and Lee

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!
