When this Manele Bay wedding first popped up on my radar, it was love at first sight. But after carefully poring through every aspect of this gorgeous day, I’m convinced it’s perfect. Because on top of all the scenic gorgeousness at the Four Seasons Resort, Manele Bay and the stunning shots by Trish Barker Photography, this beautiful bride designed her very own dress. Pretty awesome, right? Click here for all that plus sooo much more.
From Trish… Bill is a doctor, Jessica is a physician’s assistant. They met at work, fell in love, and the rest is history.
They chose the gorgeous Four Season’s Resort at Manele Bay for the beautiful and intimate wedding. She designed her own dress, which I was drooling over the whole time. Just gorgeous.
It wasn’t supposed to rain. The sky was blue and everything was set up outside. But just after we finished their romantic photos, and just as the food was brought out, it began to downpour. The bride was, obviously, a bit distressed. But we saw an opportunity with the rain and the umbrellas and started a little “mini” shoot in the rain. It was awesome… my favorite part… and it completely distracted the bride from the fact that it was raining on her wedding. And by the time we were done, the rain had passed, the sky cleared up again and their celebration continued into the night.
In Hawaii, it’s considered a blessing if it rains on your wedding. A good sign. It definitely resulted in a good time and some of my favorite shots of the day.
