Sharon & Bruce – Destination Wedding – Hawaii – Waleia Beach, Maui

Calling Bruce & Sharon’s wedding “unforgettable” would be an understatement. ¬†They were married on Waleia Beach in Maui, Hawaii two years ago with a handful of friends and family in attendance and I was blessed to be a part of their day.

Destination weddings aren’t the easiest – we travel with 200 pounds of gear, often alone, and are responsible for knowing and understanding what permits are needed, what to bring, how much you can fly with, how to pack what you do fly with, and what to do when the airline loses half your luggage. But taking gorgeous wedding photos in Hawaii? Priceless. Destination weddings are an ideal choice for so many couples as the only people who attend are the ones closest to them and they get to spend several days together relaxing and enjoying that time.

Sharon and Bruce are literally perfect for each other, I just knew it the moment I saw them together for the first time. Their wedding was filled with beauty and emotion and was truly an unforgettable experience filled with beautiful Hawaiian customs and topped off with a Luau then a sunrise beach session. I won’t ever forget the look on Bruce’s face as he saw Sharon walk down the “aisle” or that Sharon carried her fathers wedding band with her to have a piece of him there on her wedding day. The Hawaiian customs they observed were incredible – including a time during the ceremony where the friends and family in attendance were able to offer them wishes and give them hugs. The prayer circle that they formed following the ceremony was simply heartwarming and beautiful. The entire experience was beautiful and intimate and so very special.

Congratulations to you both, Happy second anniversary! I wish you so much happiness, always.
