We’ve seen our fill of destination weddings in the land of palm trees, coconuts and aqua colored ocean and they always deliver dreamy to the dreamiest degree. But I don’t know if we’ve ever seen Hawaii quite like this – whimsical and vibrant. This is a destination wedding that only Sarah and Chris Rhoads of Sarah Rhoads Photographers could capture so perfectly. Believe me, we are crazy for details around these parts and there are plenty of fabulous bits and bobbles in this wedding but what we’re really going bananas for are the images of the lovely couple in the wilds of Hawaii. GORGEOUS! See all the pretty flowers, all the fabulous views and a boatload of pretty in the gallery.
From Sarah Rhoads Photographers… Julie & Andy got hitched on the Big Island of Hawaii where the groom, Andy is originally from. These two live in Seattle, WA and Andy plays bass for musician Dave Bazan and Julie is a photographer. These two had a gorgeous destination wedding with friends and family from far and wide. Julie & Andy had a beautiful event that was a perfect and honest reflection of them. The pallet was bright and airy and full of whimsy and charm. They incorporated beautiful paper DIY details that Julie and her family lovingly built from nothing. It was amazing to see it all come together. When Julie walked in the room to see what it looked like for the first time her eyes welled up with tears because she was so overwhelmed by how much love and affection her family and friends had put into making their wedding so special. These two really valued all of the personalized and creative elements of their day and all of the beautiful people that traveled from all over to celebrate with them.
