I am so excited to share Kate and Ryan’s beautiful Paradise Cove wedding today with you all! weddings at Paradise Cove

This was my first official wedding to document here in Hawaii, and this gorgeous wedding was a wonderful way to kick off my business here!

I was lucky enough to get to know Kate and Ryan through their stunning engagement session, and this is what I found out about them- that they are the easiest going couple I’ve had the pleasure to meet, they are hilarious, and their love is so incredibly pure and true! Having witnessed that at their engagement session, I knew that their wedding would be just the same!Paradise Cove wedding

All of their friends and family flew from all around the country to come to Hawaii to witness the love of these two! It’s really nice when your family and friends can come to a destination wedding and celebrate their love!Hawaii wedding at paradise cove

Under the palm trees of Paradise Cove, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Kate and Ryan, they declared their love for each other, and there wasn’t a dry eye, including my own, in sight! Literally, as I watched Kate reading her vows to Ryan, I realized I couldn’t see through my viewfinder anymore, and it was because it was covered in tears!Paradise Cove Wedding

As her Uncle officiated their wedding, he described the key ingredients to a successful marriage that I want to share with you.

The first key ingredient was love. It all starts with love.

The second is respect. You will not always agree with each other, but you always have to respect each other.

The third is communication. Communication isn’t always about talking, but it’s about listening to.

And the last key ingredient is making time for each other. 

“It only took me one night to know I was going to marry you…”Weddings at Paradise Cove

I hope you enjoy these beautiful highlights of their summer wedding at Paradise Cove!
