Shannon and Stephen dreamt up a vintage inspired wedding and was a dream for us to photograph. The details and personal style they brought to their wedding day was just exquisite. The bride's dress by Jenny Packham was one of our favorite dresses we've seen. The detail of the beaded embroidery, the flattering neckline and the open back created such an elegant look for our stunning bride. And Stephen, our handsome groom, did not leave any detailed un-noticed, to insure he was looking his best for his bride. His Brooks Brothers suit and over all look, inspired by the Great Gatsby left him looking and feeling so stylish and handsome. Oh how we love stylish grooms!
They decided to marry at the lush and tropical Lawai Tropical Botanical Gardens located on the south shore of Kauai. The Big Valley ceremony site, was about a 20 minute bus ride into the center of the gardens, which really makes for an adventure. The ceremony site was elegantly decorated with two large floral arrangements to frame the aisle, along with white fabric to dress the chairs and white orchids to sprinkle the aisle which would lead Shannon to her handsome groom.
The magical setting under the large monkey pod tree, covered in green vines, created a breathtaking location for this couple and their dearest of family and friends to witness their 'I Do's'. The couple asked all of their guest to dress in black, which added to the formal affair and look of their special day. After their ceremony we photographed their fine art photos around the gardens and the lush green atmosphere it provided. We then headed to a near by beach in Poipu to catch the warm light of the Hawaiian setting sun. We adored our lovely couple to say the least - their love for each other, wonderful personalities and their impeccable style created a dream wedding for us and we were so honored to be their photographers. We hope you enjoy their fairytale wedding as much as we loved capturing their love story.
