Everybody loves Hawaii, it’s safe to say. The same with me, whenever an opportunity comes up, especially work related I’m there. This time we had a great Kahala Resort wedding in Waikiki. I ran in to Serena’s parents while photographing a wedding in the Columbia Gorge, we talked for a minute and they brought up their daughter’s wedding in Hawaii, I handed them my biz card and went back to work. 2 month later I received a call from David Serena’s dad, ‘we would like to book you, Serena loves your photography’; so here we go, a week in Hawaii and a Kahala Resort wedding in Waikiki, work and pleasure. The weather was ideal, the resort was really nice with a stunning beach front. We had a few days to explore the Oahu Island. We drove up to North Shore for the big wave scene. We also spent some time capturing drone footage for the wedding film and doing some research to make sure everything goes smoothly during the wedding day. Serena and Doron flew in from the Bay area, we had never met before until the rehearsal dinner at Tommy Bahama‘s in Waikiki. Everyone was super nice and we knew it was going to be a good day documenting their wedding. Beautiful, sunny day on the beach, with light breeze made a perfect back drop for the outdoor photo session. Ceremony area is just perfect, surrounded by palm trees and ocean view. Everyone had a great time in to the night, amazing seafood dinner followed by heartwarming toasts and dancing in Jewish tradition were fun to capture on camera. Kahala Resort is a top notch venue on Oahu, we highly recommend it. We love destination weddings wherever they may take us, so please contact us with any location ideas. We’d love to hear from you.
