Wade in the water: Fiji

You may remember Katie & Ben from their Fiji wedding. We just had to share a few images from their day after shoot in the crystal clear, aqua waters of Fayjay (that's how the Aussies say it at least).

Luxe Boho with Countdown Events

We were beyond blessed to be able to photograph this shoot styled by Countdown Events in Vancouver at the Four Seasons Resort. Soha Lavin of Countdown Events is recognized as the "it girl" of Vancouver weddings. As Framework Magazine shares, she is "the woman behind the biggest and most spectacular wedding showcase in the country (Canada), Creme de la Creme. A seasoned expert at orchestrating everything from high-society galas and fashion shoots to celebrity nuptials, Soha Lavin's work is nothing short of magical." Working with her has been such a blessing in our life and we are proud to say she has become a dear friend of ours. Enough gushing on our end--- you will see her work can speak for itself.

Nige & Merissa: A wedding in the land of OZ

Following our wedding in Fiji in 2012, we headed over to Australia to capture Nige & Merissa's big day. Aussies are about the most welcoming folk we've come across. Not only do they all seem to have a great sense of humor intact, they are jolly and completely lovable! These two were great fun and opted for a 1950's inspired wedding at their own historical family theater. The venue was so fitting to host their forever vows as it has been a continuous labor of love restoring it to it's former glory. Cheers to vintage mustangs, movie reels and cupcakes.

Dane & Anise: A stellar event at the Haiku Mill

This wedding was something you'd see in a magazine--- matter of fact it was featured in Pacific Weddings magazine in a lovely spread. If you review our work often, you are familiar with the stunning wedding venue the Haiku Mill. In these photos however you will notice quite a transformation  from it's traditional glory into something new entirely. The event, designed by Pacific Weddings own editor Robyn I'aea, was truly grand from the flower girl tea party and the wine and cheese pairings during the cocktail hour down on through the evening with the live creme brulee station. Without further ado, Dane & Anise...

Ben & Katie: A Destination Fiji Wedding

One of our many adventures last year was shooting a wedding in Fiji! Though they were from Australia, Katie and Ben booked us for their 1920's themed wedding and began planning an intimate week with family and friends at their destination of choice: Viti Levu, Fiji. When the day finally came to elevate our relationship from pen pals to photographers, our relationship developed into a genuine friendship without hesitation. Many late nights in Fiji left us roaring in laughter between Jonathan's impersonations of anything and everything and the sheer amusement of the highly entertaining Aussie accents all around us. Is there such a thing as soulfriends? I think yes.

A Multi-cultural Wedding by Belle Destination Events: Haiku Mill

This was one of our favorite weddings of all time! This multi-cultural event was a melting pot of beauty, fun, love and laughter. Here is a snippet from Belle Destination Events:

To create the setting they envisioned, we set up plush Turkish rugs, tons of accent pillows, coffee tables, varied vintage decor pieces, side tables, and nick knacks, giving the Mill's lounge ares the feel of an exotic living room. The dining tables themselves were all unique and inviting, accenting different elements of glass, drift wood, overflowing arrangements of flowers and fruit, and candles, candles, candles!  Instead of mounting a temporary trellis, the oh-so talented Bella Bloom attached individual vines and blooms to the existing vines that crawled up the entry way to the Mill.  Instead of bringing in glassware for the accent arrangements, we utilized the weathered and moss-covered ceramic urns from the Mill itself, and filled them with an abundance of flowers, falling over the edges to add on over-grown affect.

Rob & Lindsey: Honua Kai Lani (Sugarman Estate)

We enjoyed this wedding so much! These two were so natural, easy going and completely in love. They wanted their destination wedding to reflect the local lifestyle and they did so by serving up local kine grinds and even shave ice! The night was full of laughter and tears-- a true celebration of a new life together. We were quite sure as the day unfolded, that there was magic in the air. We may or may not have both had a good cry during the father of the bride speech...

Thomas & Valerie: A Maui Engagement

You know you've found a good guy when he not only plans the proposal but also sets up an engagement session the following day to seal the deal after whisking you away to Maui. Yep, this is a real life couple-- though we did have another photographer ask about our "models" which was entertaining. Without further ado check out the beautiful couple...
