Kona, Hawaii Wedding: Kim + Steve

 

I first met Kim + Steve a few years ago. I had photographed a mutual friend’s wedding, and Kim loved my images so much, that she asked me to shoot an engagement session for them. During their session, we started talking about their plans for their wedding day. It was then that they said they were planning on getting married in Hawaii. I casually mentioned that I also traveled for weddings, and that I would love to go with them! (as I chuckled under my breath in disbelief that this would ever happen.)

Flash forward a year later and Kim asked me if I would seriously consider coming to Hawaii to document their wedding day! Of coarse I jumped at the opportunity, as all signs pointed straight to YES!

Steve + Kim’s wedding day was located on the Big Island of Hawaii along the Kona coast. The ceremony + Reception was hosted by the stunning Royal Kona Resort,  where they said their vows in front of a private lagoon, family, and dear friends.

Kimberly stunned in a gorgeous fit and flare gown made by the consistently talented, Augusta Jones, and a simply elegant veil that she won from Blanca Veils.

I think my favorite part of Kim + Steve’s wedding day had to be the reception. Kim knew that I would fit right in with her friends, and man was she right! I don’t think I have ever laughed as hard as I did on that night. By the amount of family and friends that flew all the way out to Hawaii to witness the union of Steve + Kim, it speaks true to who they are as people, and how much they are cherished by their Ohana. <3

Thank you + Congratulations to the new Mr. + Mrs. Meier! Because of you, I was blessed to spend 6 days in the most beautiful paradise I have ever laid eyes on with the love of my life! Because of you, my husband and I made memories that will last us our lifetime. Because of you, we will forever be grateful. <3 Cheers to the memories made, and the ones that made us who we are! I can’t wait to see where this road will take you! <3

Xoxo,

Mel.
