Romantic Sunset Bridal Portraits in Hawaii

I frequently find myself dreaming of paradise, and in those moments where I need a visual I’ll quickly scroll to this inspo from Kylie Martin. Complete with salty air and sun-kissed skin, every detail proves that Hawaii is the ultimate canvas for romance. The cool rush of the ocean paired with Passion Roots blooms, it’s an inspiration that has me dreaming of an endless summer, and you can see it all here!

From Kylie Martin“But these are the days we dream about when the sunlight paints us gold”

The inspiration for this session was drawn from natural textures and light located on the North Shore of Oahu in Hawaii. During the late winter months the sea casts large swells that release a salty spray throughout the air, as the sun begins to sink into the horizon a rush of gold light pours out over the ocean and reflects into the hazy air creating a serene, romantic canvas. We chose a gown that was modern but feminine, the natural textures found throughout the gown were complimentary to the location we shot in. We wanted our Bride’s hair to feel effortless but still maintain a chic quality. Kendra was able to create two stunning original looks out of one, this helped create a “day to night” or “ceremony to reception” hairstyle. A lush, overgrown bouquet completed the look by incorporating neutral colors and a unique arrangement. The concept was to create an effortlessly chic look that can appeal to any bride who wants to remain classic but allow for some modern touches.

Romantic Hawaiian Estate Destination Wedding

Hawaii is without a doubt one of the most magical and romantic places in the world. But with gorgeous, organic florals from Passion Roots in muted shades of pink and red and soft, breathtaking photos captured by O’Malley Photographers, this sweet Portland couple’s destination wedding on the island of Oahu rivals the state’s natural beauty. See all the pretty here.


From O’Malley Photographers... We recently photographed a beautiful and intimate wedding on the island of Oahu. The bride and groom reside in Portland, Oregon but opted to have the wedding on the bride’s grandparents’ property near where she was born. It’s a stunning property overlooking Lanikai Beach and the ocean. The reception was held at the historic Moana Surfrider in Honolulu, with gorgeous florals by the talented Passion Roots.

Elegant Hawaii Summer Wedding

Whenever I’m staring at a wedding for the first time, I look at the people. At their faces. At the joy or the excitement or the nerves. And this bride had me completely at hello. She’s literally glowing and as you might have guessed, her wedding – with images from Ashley Goodwin and a delightful film from Pan + Tilt – most definitely followed suit… colors that won’t let you look away, details that feel they were meant to be and a sense of style that permeates every last corner. And there is so much more right here.

From Ashley Goodwin Photography … An Italian boy + a beautiful surfer girl from Kauai fuse their energetic and lively romance into a romantic and fun event at the perfect “old world Italy” location, overlooking a Waikiki sunset. The perfect blend of classic Europe mixed with the relaxed vibe of the islands, down to the prosciutto wrapped melons and local hawaiian cuisine. Add in some champagne sprays and you’ve got one hell of a good time!
