From Wendy Laurel….Adam and Scott have been together a long time. They have a daughter together. And they are a family. But they weren’t able to get married where they live in Australia so they combined their wedding and honeymoon and headed to Maui for a lovely destination wedding easy for both of their families to attend (families from Australia and the mainland US). The day was filled with small personal and sentimental touches — a grandfather’s pocket watch, the rainbow shirt Scott was wearing when he first met Adam, their daughter in the wedding ceremony, readings from Scott’s Aunt and another from one of their best friends, a custom made cake topper.

From Kylie MartinErin and Warren curated a beautiful, intimate ceremony in the hills of Hawaii surrounded by their closes friends and family. When Erin initially reached out to me she described the feeling she desired for her wedding day. I am always moved by brides that focus on the emotion and experience conveyed throughout their day over the “look.” Erin explained that she wanted her day to feel intimate and relaxed but have an elegant touch. Elegant it was. By choosing classic elements this wedding evoked a timeless grace. Soft shades of pink and ivory, champagne and an intimate gathering of guests were the perfect setting for Erin and Warren. Not only did they provide gorgeous details but they focused on the most important portion of their day, which was joining their lives together and celebrating with loved ones. Their joy and love was contagious and it was an honor to document. In staying true to the feelings they wanted to evoke on their day they were able to create a wedding that reflected themselves as a couple and a gorgeous palette of inspiration for future brides and grooms planning their weddings.

It’s the ultimate island evening and you can see it all in The Vault!

From Heather Cook Elliott PhotographyKauai is a wild and rural place, constantly changing but in many ways age old and always the same. Lush green peaks tower over unbelievably turquoise water and beaches jagged with black volcanic rock. Horses and goats and trucks are everywhere the tourists aren’t and surfboards are tied to any four wheeled thing that moves. There is very little “architecture” to write about as what is there has an odd wild west-saloon quality to it, but the sleek palms, incredibly varied plants and rock formations give form and structure to all the outdoor places anyone might care to visit. Brooke & Steve have called Kauai home for nearly two years now, two Haoles who have done an amazing and genuine job of immersing themselves in the culture, the place, the food, the sense of being that is Kauai. Their wedding was a destination one for their families and childhood and college friends, but for scores of other guests and for themselves it was really a wedding at home. Catered by their local favorite places with entertainment by an expert and acclaimed hula dance and music group, they invited everyone to explore the botanical gardens and enjoy Hawaiian Shave Ice, to dance and to lounge in the sun, to take photos in a converted VW bus, to pray with them in the oldest Catholic church on the island. In the span of just a few hours I felt that I came to know them both as old friends and I have to share some of who they are here. I loved how everything felt distinctly Hawaiian, but also unarguably Brooke & Steve and I think that’s because whatever Brook & Steve do they do all in. From shipping his truck thousands of miles from Wisconsin to Kauai because that truck is his baby to them getting matching spam musubi tattoos because they love those things, Brooke and Steve are all about love and passion and awesomeness – living it day by day and always together.
