Elim + Frank: Waimanalo Bay Wedding

Colorado-based videographer 1321 Studios Wedding Films captured the emotions, beauty and humor surrounding Elim and Frank’s Oahu destination wedding.  Love the commentary from the Studios owner, Jeff Siebert:

“Elim got in touch with us after we created Shiny & Noble’s wedding film.  Elim is great friends with Noble and Shiny and was a bridesmaid at their wedding.  We love traveling so I was thrilled when Elim got in touch with us to create her Oahu wedding film.  Elim & Frank invited us to be with them for 3 solid days and we enjoyed every minute of it.  We captured so much footage that I’m pretty sure I could have created 5 highlight videos!  We got to try out a bunch of cool new gear including an underwater camera housing to capture Elim & Frank snorkeling.  We also captured some beautiful timelapse clips that I put together into a preview film that you can watch here.  We even got to witness one of the funniest golfing expeditions that I’ve been a part of!  Elim & Frank’s Waimanalo Bay ceremony on was exceptionally gorgeous and despite the fact that it was one of the windiest weddings I’ve ever shot, I was thrilled that their vows came through loud and clear.    Planning was executed by Diana Caro-Salvador with Oahu Wedding and we enjoyed sharing Elim & Frank with Rachel Robertson of Rachel Robertson Photography.”

Christianne + Darren: Waimanalo Bay

Know what I love?  A champagne, ivory and peach wedding!  I adore Christianne and Darren’s darling beach wedding in this soft color palate.  There’s just so much to love…..a ring bearer holding a “Here Comes the Bride” sign, their 2 daughters dressed in tulle and ballet flats serving as flower girls, the bride’s flowy gown, bridesmaids dressed in champagne chiffon, the guys dresses in linen…it all looked perfect together against the turquoise blue water of Waimanalo Bay.  Images by Kai-Photo.

Khadijah + Djuanyel: Magic Island

April 6th was a very busy day for Oahu Wedding!  It’s rare that we take on 2 weddings on the same day, and fortunately we have an amazing staff that allowed us to do so while executing both flawlessly.  While one-half of the “crew” was at the Oasis Oceanfront Estate for Lulu and David’s ceremony and reception, the other half was at Magic Island for Khadijah and Djuanyel’s ceremony.  I attended both and was blessed to see 2 beautiful, amazing couples on their wedding day.

While we are no strangers to orange, fuchsia and turquoise wedding colors, every couple is unique and there’s always some “moment” that stays with me after each wedding.  I have to admit that I was struck by tears as Khadijah processed down the aisle with her father at her side.  The embrace they shared before meeting the groom is one that I will remember forever.  The tears soon disappeared into smiles and laughter as the ceremony unfolded. Khadijah and Djuanyel celebrated with a flower shower, apple cider toast and wedding cake before heading to the Halekulani for their formal reception.  Kai-Photo captured their joy beautifully!

Sarah + Don: Kualoa Ranch – Secret Island and Moli’i Garden

Happy New Year!  It’s only fitting that we begin 2012 with a brand new website and blog.  In the coming weeks we will be adding more weddings to our portfolio, and in the meantime we’ll be sharing some teaser images of our recent weddings via our blog!

Sarah and Don’s summer wedding at Kualoa Ranch was surely a day to remember.  Both airline pilots, it’s only fitting that this couple chose a destination wedding!  With a decor style and color palate inspired by the Bird of Paradise flower, their wedding day came to life in shades of orange and purple via tropical flowers, cake and favors.  The ceremony at Secret Island was followed by a cocktail and appetizer hour, live entertainment, dinner and dancing at Moli’i Garden. Images by Kai-Photo Hawaii
