I absolutely adore everything about this recent wedding we photographed at the Moana Surfrider Hotel on Waikiki Beach! I’m in love with the couple’s classic look, their timeless style, and their fun play on a Hawaiian beach wedding theme. Our bride Michelle from Northern California had dreamed of a Hawaiian wedding on the beach since she was a young girl and her hubby Alvin was 100% on board with her dream and vision. We love our destination wedding couples because they just cannot get enough of everything Hawaii and love to see how they incorporate Hawaii in their wedding designs and decor. Check out Alvin’s custom made suit with Hula Girls embroidered into the jacket lining to see what I’m talking about!
What an amazing day Michelle and Alvin’s wedding day was at the iconic Moana Surfrider Hotel in Waikiki. My team and I had so much fun capturing Michelle and Alvin’s wedding celebration with their amazing friends and family! This couple absolutely beamed from head to toe all day long! Michelle and Alvin exchanged their wedding vows at the nearby St. Augustine’s by the Sea Church in Waikiki with a traditional Filipino veiling and coin ceremony. The celebration at their open air reception at the Moana Surfrider Hotel’s Diamond Lawn continued into the late night. It was a hot day in June; however, it didn’t seem to bother anyone at all! All their wedding plans went smoothly and everyone had a wonderful time celebrating this amazing couple’s marriage!
