We are so thankful for our many many couples this year! We get to meet people from all over the country and the world on the best day of their lives. You can’t beat that. I guess it’s safe to say that we have a dream job in paradise! Lovely doesn’y begin to describe this sweet bride getting ready in her bridal suite at Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu
Here she is, our gorgeous bride making her way down to the beach for her wedding ceremony by the sea.
The wedding reception was held at Turtle Bay’s Kuilima Point where the bride and groom danced and dined with their guest under a tent.
These are the “I just go married in paradise” smiles of the bride and groom during their portrait session. The bride was stunning in her detailed bodice dress with slightly off the shoulder straps with sweetheart neckline. Even the back of her dress was beautiful with a v cut. The bride’s up do hairstyle was accented with a white flower. Her classic look was completed with a strand of pearls. Her groom wore a dark grey suit with a blue paisley necktie and a blue and white pocket square.
This wedding has too much gorgeousness to show but we wanted to start off with the wedding video from this recent Turtle Bay resort wedding with photography and video by our team here at L’Amour. Take a look at the video then please come back to this page to see some of the highlight photos too! CLICK the play button on the below video!
Stunning location, beaming bride and groom, lovely lavender and cream details all with a colorful sunset and beachfront reception under a clear tent with sparkling chandeliers! the bride wore a pale blush or pink colored wedding dress with a satin sash and sweatheart neckline accented by a veil with bead trim and pearl jewelry. Did we mention those cream colored Badgley Mischka wedding shoes with crystal detailing on the back! The groom wore a light gray suit with a pale lavender or purple paisley tie and pocket square.
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!
We will leave you with this cute photo of the bride and broom walking off down the beach with their footsteps in the sand. We think this couple’s wedding really shows the benefit of having wedding photography and video done on the wedding day.

We love capturing all of the little details that the bride and groom excitedly chose in the months leading up to their wedding. The perfect shoes to dance the night away. Gorgeous wedding bouquet with colors and textures that add to the overall look of the bride, bridesmaids, groom, groomsmen and centerpieces! The right amount of sparkly and sentimental jewelry to make the bride feel and look as special as she should on her wedding day. The wedding rings are always a fun item to photograph as they are so personal and will be with the couple for the rest of their lives as the symbol of their commitment to marriage. We can’t forget special moments like the one below of the cute little flower girl covering her eyes as the bride and groom had their first kiss during their ceremony at the Crystal Chapel in Koolina!
We suggest to our couples an engagement session if possible a few months before their big day. This gives the couples beautiful photos to include on their wedding website or on their save the dates! Aside from those great reasons, it give the future bride and groom an opportunity to test out how they feel in front of the camera and gives our photography team the ability to work with the couple before the wedding day. It is always great if the couple is already familiar with and comfortable with the Hawaii wedding photography and video team by the time the big day comes! It’s not everyday that two people are followed around by so many photographers and videographers, so this little “practice session” can really help with the jitters. We also can add-on a portrait session to any wedding package for an after wedding or “trash the dress” session. This can be great for couples who have a tight timeline on the wedding day and want more photos. An after wedding session can also be great because the stress and rush of the wedding day has passed and the bride and groom can really be themselves with no one waiting on them and no schedule to adhere to or aunties and uncles grabbing them for hugs all night long!
Our Photography and Video team focuses on weddings the majority of the year, but when we get a chance we like to photograph engaged couples visiting Hawaii for engagement session, or families who want to capture memories of their special trip to Hawaii. We are always excited to watch our couples grow from fiances to bride and groom and eventually contact us for maternity sessions and family. We hope you enjoyed these photos!

L’Amour Photography’s work was featured tonight on VH1’s Wedding Wars premier! You may recognize contestants Mario and Melinda from our previous post of their fun engagement photo session in San Francisco. This gorgeous couple have been together for 12 years and are ready to do anything and everything humanly possible to win their ultimate wedding . Mario and Melinda are battling it out against 11 other couples on VH1’s new reality show to win their dream wedding. Wedding Wars was filmed here on Oahu at Turtle Bay Resort and as we all just learned on Wedding Wars Episode 1, these competitive couples started out their Hawaii get away in the private Ocean Villas. Unfortunately, their relaxing ocean front accommodations were swept out from under them as they headed off into the jungle to get better acquainted with the natural landscapes of Hawaii. Only grass huts, bugs, spiders, rain water, and rice & beans for the rest of the competition! We can already tell, things are about to get ugly. If you missed this episode, you can view it on VH1’s website here.
Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu was the perfect Hawaii wedding venue for this couple’s destination wedding. This bride and groom are avid animal lovers who chose Turtle Bay Resort’s Stables for their wedding ceremony followed by a wedding reception in the seaside Pavilion. The stables at Turtle Bay offer a very unique atmosphere for an Oahu wedding venue. Turtle Bay resort stands alone as a wedding venue with its unique combination of accommodations and venues. There is not much more you could ask for from a Hawaii wedding venue with its beautiful ocean side accommodations away from the “big-city” life of Waikiki, a country style venue with horses and a red barn, golf course, beautiful open air glass pavilion wedding chapel, and beautiful beaches with a spectacular view of the sunset.
Intricately detailed wedding dresses are always so much fun to photograph. It is these details that won over the heart of the bride after searching all over for the perfect dress for her Hawaii Destination Wedding. Sheer layers, beading, lace, ribbons, and broaches all add style to a wedding dress that really makes it stand out amongst others. This elegant wedding dress was a cream colored sheath dress with beading around the bodice accented by two ribbons and a simple train. The beaded edge of her fingertip length veil was the perfect match for a classically elegant destination wedding dress.
