Now, we come to the formals. We took about 40 minutes pre-ceremony to do all of the formal shots with our family + guests. One of the reasons we love, love, love our photographer is his incredible skill at posing. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves:
Our serious, vogue-y group shot
The smiling version (and yep, that’s ALL of our wedding party and ALL of our guests…heavenly!)
Lovely MOH Jess.
Me + Ronelle: Ronelle’s my right hand design gal at the studio. She’s awesome and i love her to pieces.
Me + the (then future) hubs
We posed with Ronelle + Jason (Ronelle’s husband). I loved all the fun poses pre- wedding
Me + Don plus his dad and wife, Christine.
One of my faves of the day– I just thought it was too cute.
Rings on Lily Pads. I didn’t have my engagement ring for the wedding (it was being remade) but I think that our ring shots (more to come later) made up for the absence.
Immediately following our ceremony, we decided to grab a few shots at sunset to soak up the amazingness a little bit longer. We ran up some lava rocks on a golf course to catch this amazing shot (and actually ruined a very nice lady’s put from the green, but she was nice enough to give us a pass since we’d just been married 🙂
So gorgeous. A Hawaii sunset is like none other
One of my favorite fun photos of the day 🙂
We got a chance to “first look” our reception area. Here’s a few of the “teaser” shots with full blow-by-blows to follow
