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!
