This is going to be a tough blog to write! I was trying to narrow down images and there was no possible way I could! So this is going to be a 3 parter. Starting with Getting Ready and Portraits. The next blog will be Ceremony and Reception and the final blog will be their awesome trash the dress session we did a few days prior.
I had never met Tami. I knew what she looked like and her sense of humor only through our Facebook friendship. But from the second we were both in Hawaii, we were more like friends. No, scratch that, she made me feel like family. And her actual family and friends (Adam’s too) were so welcoming and warm. I can truly say my heart was full when I left Maui.
But I’ll leave their story to the photos…I’m much better behind the lens than writing my feelings!
The wedding was at a Private Residence in Maui called Lahaina Oceanfront Estate. The amazing decor and florals were done by Della with Dellables. She was a total sweetheart and I could tell she absolutely loved what she does! The coordinator Cherise was so helpful the day of (and to Tami throughout the planning)!
The super fun Jessica rocked all of the girls makeup! Dan was also awesome and did a wonderful job on their hair!
You can’t see their tank tops but they each had a: “Team Melissa” “Team Cherise” and “Team Della” tank! SO adorable (I posted it on my facebook if we are friends there! If we aren’t – add me!)
They felt the first look was the best opportunity for more time together, so we chose the private beach as the location
Adam thinks I’m funny
Stunning Tami. Just stunning.
I can hardly wait to show you the next two blogs! What do you think so far?
