Christine and Danny decided to do something special for their wedding - A Hawaii Adventure Wedding! They said "I do" in the gorgeous Pololu Valley.
The day before their wedding I met Christine and Danny in Kona to discuss the details of their wedding. It was wonderful to get to know this couple a little before hiking down into the valley with them. Christine and Danny told me about their recent travels as boyfriend and girlfriend and their soon to be excursions as husband and wife. This couple lived and breathed adventure and they could not have chosen a better elopement!
On the morning of their wedding, I met Christine and Danny at the Pololu Valley overlook. This couple was dressed better than any couple I had ever seen for an Adventure Elopement, Danny in board shorts and a t-shirt and Christine in a bathing suit and a white cover-up dress. Christine and Danny knew what they were in for and were absolutely dressed for their perfect wedding day in Hawaii.
Once we arrived in the valley, Gerald, my chief photographer, Christine, Danny and I all had to cross the very high and flooded river leading out to the ocean to get to the more secluded side of the valley. This was a brilliant way to start a true adventure wedding here on the Big Island!
After we successfully crossed (of course now wet) - kudos to this couple's attire, Gerald, my set Christine and Danny up for their first round of photographs. They laughed being their ideal wedding and talked about how they couldn't wait to share the photos with their friends back home. It was just a gift for me to be able to provide this special experience for them.
I left them alone while I headed to the other side of the valley to set up for their ceremony in on the small black sand beach.
Christine and Danny arrived for their ceremony overlooking the majestic Pololu Valley. This couple opened with a Hawaiian Blessing and a lei exchange. They exchanged vows and rings, blended the black sand beneath their feet, and closed their wedding with another Hawaiian Blessing. It was a beautiful, intimate ceremony.
After their wedding, Gerald captured photographs of Christine and Danny out on the beach. I really enjoyed getting to know this adventurous couple. So many blessings!
