BY ADVENTURE ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER TEAM KELSI & PATRICK
Young lovers, Joseph and Tia, came to Hawaii to have a stunning Honolulu tropical garden elopement among close friends and family. The lush foliage provided a magical backdrop for their ceremony, complete with a waterfall and koi pond! It was the perfect escape to a private oasis and created a truly unique sense of calm and wonderment. During the first look, Tia emerged from the greenery and approached Joseph, tapping him lightly on the shoulder. Their fond embrace and tenderness definitely set the scene for the rest of the day. While whispering sweet nothings, the garden’s curious kitty made a surprise appearance! The non-traditional ceremony did away with the aisle, keeping their guests circled close around the lovers at the altar. Their timeline was wide open, so we were able to take them on a little adventure to the beach, allowing for some barefoot playfulness in the sand and surf. Why limit yourself to a single location when you can make the most of Hawaii’s picturesque scenery? We ended the evening with Joseph and Tia holding each other as newlyweds, spending their first moments together in bliss as the setting sun dipped below the horizon – the perfect ending to a gorgeous tropical garden elopement in paradise.
