Lizzi+Geoff: Kona Coast Wedding

I'm so excited to share with you my very first Hawaii wedding today! I met Lizzi and Geoff early last year through my volunteer work with the Pacific Pug Rescue, and was so delighted when they asked me to photograph their wedding on the Kona Coast of the Big Island.

Lizzi and Geoff chose the Royal Kona Resort in Kailua-Kona for its very cool 60s vibe. I kept thinking of Mad Men the whole time we were there!

Gorgeous view from their suite...

When couples opt not to see each other before the ceremony, I'm always extra focused on the groom as the bride comes down the aisle. Geoff's reaction was so great.

During cocktail hour guests were serenaded with a band and treated to som hula dancing...

Hula lessons for the bridal party...

Though there were showers throughout the day, we were treated to an amazing sunset, and made sure to head out onto the lava rocks for a few pictures.

Lizzi's Dad specifically requested fire dancing at the wedding! These traditional Samoan dancers were amazing. It was pretty mesmerizing!

Congratulations, Lizzi + Geoff! I had such an amazing time working with the both of you and am so honored to have been a part of your amazing day!
