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.

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."
