Stephanie + Harald - #LuckyInLove

Wow! It is so wonderful that Hawaii has reopened its doors to tourism after all of these months. Being part of the most special day of two people’s lives is such a gift, and spending all this time without those special days this spring, summer and fall has been tough!

I am so grateful to have been part of Stephanie + Harald’s Kuki`o Beach Elopement Wedding here on Hawaii Big Island. This couple has so much love for one another. Harald, from Hawaii, helped Stephanie to fall in love with the beautiful Big Island. Together, they not only shared a love of the `aina, but a sincere love and appreciation for one another, which is absolutely expressed in their gorgeous wedding photographs.

Stephanie + Harald’s elopement began with a pre-wedding photo session at the start of the beach with one of Kona Wedding Officiant’s Associate Photographers, Marissa Medina.

After photo session one, Stephanie met Harald in their flower heart in the sand and their ceremony began with the blowing of the pu and an Oli Blessing.

The couple exchanged leis and intimate vows. Their rings were blessed with a ti leaf, ocean water, a koa bowl, and a Hawaiian chant (Hawaiian Ring Blessing). The couple then blended the sand from beneath their feet and were pronounced married in the beautiful state of Hawaii!

Stephanie and Harald enjoyed radiant sunset photographs as a just married couple and were sent off into the night as husband and wife.

Congratulations to this lucky in love couple!
