Lindsey & Justin's Enchanted Nestldown Wedding

So many things to be excited about for my nephew Justin's wedding... the fairy tale location, meeting some cousins for the first time ever, and the list goes on. But the best part was of course about Justin and Lindsey - as they did not see each other before the wedding, I was also feeling the anticipation and butterflies from both sides. And when Lindsey finally made her descent from the grand steps in the forest down to the ceremony area, the combination of giddiness, happiness and relief came together so nicely. It was an emotional hand-off, the ceremony was magical, all the butterflies were literally released, and from there Justin and Lindsey knew how to get the party started! It's been great seeing the evolution of Justin being single and talking about this girl he had just met, seeing their relationship grow over the past couple of years, watching how they balance each others personalities so well, and simply being there for the truly authentic moments of the ceremony. Congratulations and thanks for letting your cousins be the flower (bubble) girls too! I can assure you they had more fun than anyone else at the wedding! "Uncle Calvin" had fun too! :-)

Kristine and Corey - Just Maui'd (Andaz Maui)

Alooooha from Maui's south shore in Wailea. The palm trees swayed in the gentle wind and the sound of waves calmly splashed along the beach. There was laughter. There was tears. There was an intense feeling of love and joy in the air. And before the sun had set on another beautiful warm day in Hawaii, Kristine and Corey exchanged vows and rings, Pastor David blessed them with a prayer, and they were officially Maui'd! Kristine and Corey's journey had began with 3 months of JUST emails every day before meeting - never seeing one another, not talking on the phone, not even a single video chat. They had fallen in love without knowing what the other person looked like. Simply amazing and pure.

Corey and Kristine - it was a truly a joy to photograph the day and being around you and your family. And a big and sincere Mahalo for allowing our family be a part of your celebration. Ho'omaika'i!!

What more could anyone ask for??

There was a shark attack the day before and after.  Hopefully these guys made it back to shore!
