Words cannot express the joy this wedding brought to me. Not just because I am a huge believer that all love is equal, but more because the partnership these showcased on there special day was like none I had witnessed before. I saw two friends who love each other so passionately and whole heartedly. Friendship, lovers, and soul mates…
The venue itself was a bit rustic and daring (for a coastal wedding)… but pair it with an 80 degree day and a whole lot of behind the scenes support, thank you, Chanda and A Monique Affair for pulling off a seamless and elegant wedding form a blank canvas! Raina, started the day pulling two already beautiful ladies into a perfect “best” of who they are… both individually stunning! The food from the Mixing Bowl was off the charts, but my favorite energy was from the DJ herself… I love a femail DJ… Caity Watson from heart of gold Dj’s rocked a great party!
Thanks for allowing me to be such a huge part of your day and rocking this awesome team to bring this beautiful wedding day to life!
There is never a better compliment than being the chosen one to capture one of the biggest days in a couple’s journey. But even better than capturing it local is being trusted and valued enough to be apart of their magical destination wedding on the beautiful grounds of Sunset Ranch on the North Shore of Oahu.
Because I was apart of this special destination wedding day, I of course wanted to be apart of the rehearsal dinner celebration at the amazing Turtle Bay resort. It’s a great way for me to get to know their family and friends better and it was a great way for me to sneak in some beach shots since there wedding day was going to be taken place upcountry on the beautiful grounds of Sunset Ranch.
And let me tell you about Sunset Ranch… what a paradise. Its no wonder Marc and Kara fell in love with this location sight unseen (other than what they saw on the internet, they had yet to step foot on these grounds until the day before their wedding day)… It’s a breathtaking ranch that over looks the Northern Coast of Oahu. But really what is magical is where they said they’re vows. Under a banyan tree of wonder that over looks a valley of paradise was the perfect and serene spot for two people that really are connected from another lifetime.
Thank you Marc and Kara for this amazing opportunity to capture such an amazing day of two people that I will forever hold dear in my heart!
