What a great start to the week when I get to sit here and share with you guys another beautiful
Brittanie and Matthew’s elopement was definitely a beauty! They decided to elope here in Hawaii and share that and a special secret with me before the entire world knew! But, as Hawaii likes to do during rainy season, the weather was proving to be unpredictable!
The Big Island of Hawaii is so beautiful, and all we wanted to do was capture that with their wedding photos! As we started to run out of days on their trip, we settled for a day and really crossed all of our fingers and toes that the rain would let up!
As I flew into the island, I have o admit, I was a bit nervous because all that we could see was grey skies and rain! Its my job as a wedding photographer to keep the bride calm, so I told her we would still have amazing rain shots and headed out to find an umbrella to make it happen!
When I pulled up to the location to wait for the gorgeous bride to arrive, the skies opened up in the best way…there was sun and a hint of blue skies!!
We all jumped for joy!!
The rain held off for the entire ceremony, as their family watched Brittanie and Matthew say their beautiful I Do’s! We managed to get some amazing couples shots, and right as the last shutter clicked, the rain started back up! It truly was meant to be!
