As a Big Island Photographer, I meet a lot of people from all over the world. I love hearing everyone's stories. How they met, the things that make them special. Everyone has a story.
Amy and Austin met at a vet's office where Austin works. They are a couple of the most laid back people I have met. Amy's smile is quick and there is always laughter. Their intimate wedding along the Puna Coast of the Big Island was full of joy, laughter and even a few tears (though happy ones).
Initially, the wedding was to be just the two of them. However, Amy's mom and sister surprised them and showed up to witness this joyous occasion just a couple days before the wedding.
Amy and Austin chose a beautiful location along the Puna coast which is little known, but absolutely gorgeous with lava cliffs and rainforest.
Cheryl Pascual from Aloha Weddings in Paradise was the officiant for this beautiful small wedding.
Amy had the most awesome, sparkly dress! And the bouquet!! Just WOW! While Amy was getting ready, Austin and Cheryl went down to the location to wait. Amy was determined to surprise him with how amazing she looked. And she did! It was a beautiful ceremony, marked with tears from both the bride and groom as they expressed their love for each other.
After the ceremony, we continued on for photos with the family and more formal images for Amy and Austin to remember this big day. There was lots of laughter and Amy even got a piggyback ride from Austin (check out the video below). All in all a wonderful day! Congratulations!
