Destination Vow Renewal on the Shores of Hawaii

A 10 year celebration of love, marriage and 4 beautiful babies is such a good reason to pack up and head to Hawaii. This couple, who started their relationship on the pretty beaches of Hawaii returned for a vow renewal that could double for a wildly gorgeous vacation. It’s a two-for-one captured by Ifloyd Photography. From pineapple signage by Maggie Allen Calligraphy to pretty beach dining and a stunning ocean view, there’s so much more in the gallery to pore through

From the beautiful Mrs… Celebrating 10 years is a pretty special feat for any couple. Keeping the romance and adventure in every marriage is important to keeping a lasting one. For the both of us, living in Hawaii years ago was definitely an amazing start to our lives together. But, when we planned our wedding 10 years ago, we had decided to keep it close to home and brought hawaii to all of our family and friends, but promising each other we would make it back. Ten years later, after living in 5 different cities, the births of our four sweet daughters, starting careers, just life, and saving tons of pennies, we returned to hawaii and in front of the ocean, the Hawaiian mountains, and a few friends, we renewed the vows we shared ten years ago.

We had so much fun planning this! We chose Kualoa because it is a beautiful secluded part of this hawaiian island. Most visitors get to oahu and get stuck in honolulu, which is so fun and busy and a full on amazing city. But, the other side of the island is where you get a true taste of hawaiian life and culture. We were so thankful to our three sweet friends who made the trek across the country to join us, and loved getting to share with them our favorite place on earth.

A friend and talented calligrapher made for us custom designed welcome letters, place cards, and menus. Custom “He’s my pineapple and She’s my pineapple” cards for our freshly picked from dole plantation pineapples and a pineapple for each of our guests. Decorated our table with driftwood, freshly picked flowers, and tableware.

We had a piece made that included the words to our favorite song (Jason Mraz, I won’t give up) that we felt spoke to our marriage. A conk shell with written calligraphy. Alea created the watercolor pineapple headers, because really who doest just love a pineapple. Flowers came from the island, and alea watched a few DIY’s to make her bouquet and floral crown.

Going to Hawaii was certainly a trip of a lifetime, and with helicopter tours, sailing with the dolphins off the coast of the napali, jumping off cliffs, eating spam and eggs, paddle boarding with sea turtles, it made celebrating ten years epic. The best part was telling each other how much we loved waking up to each other these last 3,650 mornings. That even in knowing the different seasons a marriage can take you, that we are in this forever and we commit to making sure love wins!

From M&J PhotographyHayley & John’s intimate wedding took place at the Burgh Island Hotel in Devon made famous by the novels of Agatha Christie. The hotel is an original 1950′s art deco hotel that feel like it is caught in the past without having lost any of it’s originality or class. A wonderful place to photograph, especially when the tide comes in and it’s completely cut off from the mainland.

An intimate ceremony in the captains room was followed by Champagne afternoon tea with scones, cream and jam and of course wedding cake. Then the evening celebrations began with delicious cocktails in the bar followed by dinner and live jazz in the hotel dining room.

Additional Credits

- The veil was made by the bride’s mother
– Hayley’s turquoise bracelet was borrowed from her mother and originally belonged to her grandmother, so out served as the something borrowed, the something old and the something blue.

From Polly Alexandre PhotographyI’m delighted to share this beautiful South of France wedding with you. Renata & Johnny’s first meeting involves 2 jetskis, 1 sea urchin, 40 spikes, 2 cities and a hospital. You can read more about their story, and see their Ibiza pre-wedding shoot on my blog. The Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild is one of the most beautiful villas on the Cote d’Azur. It overlooks the Bay of Villefranche and the Bay of Beaulieu and is in one of my favourite areas of the South of France; such gorgeous coastline, so romantic; it’s a perfect choice for your wedding. Béatrice Ephrussi de Rothschild was a strong, intellectual woman who built a dream villa and put together an exceptional collection of art and antiques.When she discovered this plot of land in 1906, Béatrice fell in love with the beauty of the spot. However, back then, it was no more than an arid rock crossed by a mule track. When she learnt that the land was for sale, she bought it immediately. It took 5 years to build the villa and when finished she used it to home her incredible collection of porcelains, paintings by the masters and furniture. She made this her winter residence from 1912 onwards and came here regularly for over ten years, during which she split her time between Paris, Monaco and Deauville. The villa is now owned by The Academie des Beaux Arts, and open to the public, as well for private hire. Renata and Johnny got ready at the Grand Hotel du Cap, and had a private first look in their gardens, before travelling together to the Villa Ephrussi for some pre-ceremony photographs in the gardens. A beautiful and moving Jewish ceremony followed under a glamorous chuppah in the centre of the gardens, and as Renata and Johnny walked down the aisle together as husband and wife, the music started and the fountains shot high into the air in celebration. Guests explored the gardens over a cocktail reception and then were seated for a beautiful outdoor dinner in the gardens. Speeches followed, live music and then a wild party to the sounds of an awesome band from Marseille, a dessert table, macaroon pyramid, lively hora dancing and yet more dancing late into the night. As you can see from the photos, the day just got more and more fun as it went on! The Bride would like to share a sentence from her Wedding Report by Emma that perfectly sums up how they felt about their day.. “It was a similar sentiment that echoed throughout the evening as the newlyweds surfed their way through a sea of awed congratulations. It was almost as though this reality that Renata and Johnny had created was better that any dream that could be imagined; this display of love was filling each and every heart to bursting point.”
