The waves crashed upon the north shore of Oahu as the palm trees swayed in the tropical breeze. The breeze blew through the hotel suite, creating a fabulous, pulsing energy. The energy of the bridesmaids making the final touches on their dresses…the energy from the clicking of high heels on the hardwood floor…the energy from every final spritz of hairspray & every final stroke of mascara applied…the energy & the emotion that came when Shariana’s bridesmaids helped her get ready… As the last button on her wedding gown was buttoned, her sweet bridesmaids oohed & aahed over how incredibly amazing she looked. The waves crashed on the shore outside the hotel & it’s energy mimicked Shariana’s excited energy. This was a bride who was ready-ready to walk down the aisle & become Will’s fabulous wife.
The bride & groom were surrounded by family & friends for their gorgeous wedding. The ocean provided a turquoise backdrop for their seaside ceremony & after they said, “I Do,” they partied like there was no tomorrow. If you follow my blog, you know that I am such a sucker for details & this wedding was chalk full of them! I loved the strands of paper lanterns adorning the reception site, the darling hand fans that were given out as favors, I loved Shariana’s incredible shoes. The reception was filled with hula dancing, fire dancing & even fireworks! At the end of the night, the bride, groom & their friends splashed in the ocean & had the time of their lives. Like I told you, it was a party to remember.
Shariana & Will-I hope you know that I love being around the two of you. I love the connection you have as a couple-I love how fun you are together. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have photographed your wedding! I wish you nothing but a fabulous life full of wonderful love & fun! With deep gratitude…xoxo, marielle.
The view from Shariana’s suite overlooked Turtle Bay & was gorgeous…
Shariana’s wedding gown was absolutely stunning. I was obsessed with the ruffles…
Love the look on Shariana’s face as she sees Will waiting for her at the end of the aisle.
This is my favorite photograph of Shariana & Will from their wedding. They look sooooo amazing!
I was so, so, SO excited about this photograph. ANY bride who is willing to lay on the beach in her wedding gown gets a gold star in my book! Love this photo so much!
The food was amazing. Thanks to my fab husband for making the food look picture perfect before digging in!
There was a fire dancer at the wedding who was incredible!
