Michelle & Clinton's Hapuna Beach Elopement




Michelle and Clinton celebrated a simple beach elopement at Hapuna Beach this last November. They had an intimate wedding, just the two of them and a few guests from Kona Wedding Officiant, including myself, our associate photographer Leah Wright, and our ukulele player, Uma Ojeda.




Their wedding began on a beautiful afternoon and a quiet beach day. The couple was staying at the Hapuna Westin Resort, so Hapuna Beach was the perfect location for their Big Island Hawaii beach elopement.














I started their intimate ceremony just before sunset with the blowing of the pu (Hawaiian conch shell) and a Hawaiian Oli Blessing. This couple exchanged Hawaiian leis, shared vows and lovely personal words. They also had a sand blending ceremony.











Michelle and Clinton decided not to exchange rings but instead to have a hand-binding ceremony, which is a old tradition for the term 'tying the knot.'




After Michelle and Clinton were pronounced husband and wife, they took many more photographs along the beautiful Hapuna Beach shoreline.

Meet Deanna

Kona Wedding Officiant’s licensed minister, Deanna, believes that Aloha is the most important element of a wedding in Hawaii.  Aloha has many meanings, but most of all, it means love.  Deanna specializes in Hawaiian traditions and enjoys creating intimate, romantic ceremonies for couples.  All couples and denominations are welcome in marriage and vow renewal at Kona Wedding Officiant. 

Deanna believes that every wedding is a gift.  She is passionate about bringing couples together in the sacred bond of marriage.  Ceremonies are personalized to couples and additional elements such as Blowing Of The Pu are welcomed without additional fees. To create an ideal experience, all weddings are performed on secluded beaches whenever possible.

Deanna has a degree in Philosophy and Religion.  She has a strong background in Hawaiian cultures and traditions through her past work as a teacher in the state of Hawaii.  Deanna had the privilege to teach Hawaiian studies and Hawaiian history.  There she was given the gift of working with Hawaiian Kumus where she learned protocols and traditions such as lei making, chants, and songs.  Deanna continues to learn new Hawaiian Oli, Mele, and Pule to bring to her ceremonies. Before moving to Hawaii, back in New Jersey, Deanna worked with hundreds of brides and grooms in a different way, as a professional wedding photographer.
