Ida and Andrew decided on a morning wedding at Hawaii's Kukio Beach in North Kona. I love this beach because it is so private, but it is never so secluded or beautiful as it is in the morning.

We met Ida and Andrew at Kukio Beach at 8:30am. They were dressed perfectly for a summer elopement; Ida in a flowly light dress and Andrew in a linen shirt and shorts. I knew this couple was ready for a memorable and magical wedding.

They began their morning with their first set of photographs with Gerald Besson, our chief photographer, under the beautiful morning light. This couple enjoyed the remarkably stark beach, and of course, one another. While Gerald directed their photographs, they prepared for their ceremony, just about an hour away.

At about 9:30am, Ida and Andrew met me at my beach altar. The couple was greeted by a flower heart in the sand. Their ceremony was held under the gorgeous summer sun.

Ida and Andrew opened their ceremony with the blowing of the pu (Hawaiian conch shell) and a Hawaiian Oli Blessing. They exchanged leis, then vows and also chose to have their rings blessed with a Hawaiian blessing and Hawaiian Earth elements such as the ti leaf, koa wood, and ocean water. The couple then blended the sand from beneath their feet and were pronounced husband and wife!

With a fantastic low tide, Gerald was able to capture some remarkable photos of Ida and Andrew out on the lava rocks.

What Our Couples Say

"Deanna at Kona Wedding Officiant is amazing. My parents were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and my siblings and I wanted to have a vow renewal ceremony for them on the beach with traditional Hawaiian chants. Everything was absolutely perfect from the beautiful beach location to her soothing voice. Thank You, Deanna for helping my siblings and I, give my parents a day they will remember."
