A beautiful Hawaiian wedding at JW Marriott on Oahu. Jessica and John were simply destined for each other. Shooting a destination wedding is totally surreal, the packing, planning and luck involved is pretty intense. Check in baggage limit 50 lbs.....I hit 49 lbs haha. 30% chance of showers we got that 30% and then it cleared up. Whatever Oahu threw at me I adapted quickly and made the best adjustments possible some good some bad haha.
Jessica had her make up and hair done by Sarah Obringer at www.whikdhawaii.com the crew she brought along was awesome, funny and delivered amazing product within their timeframe. I would highly recommend Sarah for anyone planning an Oahu wedding.
The JW has some outstanding spots around the hotel for formals and first looks. The day before the wedding I wandered the grounds to scout and get a general idea of what to expect.
The ceremony was held on the beautiful grounds facing the ocean prior to sunset. Its so easy to get lost in the moment there because of the view.
This shot of John above completely encompasses the reception as well as the mood of the day " love and fun " haha. What an awesome night. There was so much going on it became exhilarating. A truly special wedding for two wonderful people. I was honored to be the one chosen and trusted to capture their moments.
