Tracy & Jerry were married this past January at the lovely Anaeho`omalu (Waikoloa) Beach during our windy weather stint here on Big Island Hawaii. The couple originally intended to have an Adventure Wedding down in the gorgeous Pololu Valley, but when we arrived to a dark, wet rain, this couple decided that a raining wedding just wasn't for them.
After waiting at the valley for about 15 minutes, Tracy & Jerry decided on a location change. I immediately suggested Mau`umae, which is about a 45 minute drive from Pololu, but when we arrived to the beach it was closed! Oh no! Plan C was not in action. I told the couple to please follow me down the coastline and we would make their wedding day happen!
On our drive down, I called the Waikoloa Resort to ensure that their location was open. They confirmed yes, but very high winds. I knew that this beach was going to be Tracy & Jerry's special wedding place today, especially since so many state and hotel locations were closed due to the weather.
When we arrived in the parking lot, the winds were strong. Just south of the immediate beach, there is a lovely secluded cove, situated on an amphitheater facing the ocean. This spot would provide some shelter for this couple's intimate beach wedding.
When we arrived at the beach, Kona Wedding Officiant's associate photographer, Elisabeth Stapelton took Tracy & Jerry for their first photography session while I prepared for their wedding ceremony.
Once they returned, we started their beautiful, and thanks to the weather, completely private wedding.
After their ceremony, Tracy & Jerry took some group photos with their guests who traveled to be with them for their special day & then took some more couple's photos. Overall, their wedding day was memorable, beautiful, and intimate!
Congratulations to Tracy & Jerry!
