We love the chance to explore new wedding venues around the Hawaiian Islands. This intimate garden wedding at Mari’s Garden was a dream come true to photograph. Garden weddings offer so many gorgeous details to photograph as well as providing a stunning natural backdrop for your bridal portraits.
It’s safe to say that we were extremely excited for Corylei + Mike’s big day, ever since we sat down many months ago to discuss details over beer with Corylei, while she anxiously awaited for Mike to return from his duty station abroad. Kicking off our summer season here on the island, Corylei and Mike’s garden ceremony was everything we imagined, and more! These two are a super classy pair, Corylei’s dress and Mike’s uniform are timeless. Seriously, we think their black and white photos could be from almost any decade.
With a gorgeous waterfall as a backdrop to the altar, friends and family surrounded the newlyweds as they tied the knot, and celebrated throughout the evening with food, drinks, and some of the cutest desserts we’ve seen, this was definitely the most laid-back and lighthearted weddings we’ve been to – and are so honored to have captured.
