Julie+Pete are pretty stellar human beings. The kind you want around you in good and bad times. They excel at their careers and they are rocking life together.
I was overjoyed to join them out on the Big Island of Hawaii for their intimate wedding at Ke Alohi Kai, an estate right on the ocean in Kona-Kailua.
The ceremony was delayed a few minutes by a little rain but the humidity didn't stop us all day long. There was a firedancer and a ukulele player, because after all we were in Hawaii. The day was completely laid back and had a wonderful island feel to it.
Besides all of the hard work Julie+Pete put into the day, they had some amazing help from Rachel+Ben at Vintage & Lace who helped put together a stellar cast of vendors. Seriously. I think every vendor asked me what would work best for me to get the best photos I could get. Besides doing an amazing job for Julie+Pete, they made my job that much easier! The flowers were by Passion Flowers by Nalani , the food by Paradise Gourmet, and the cake by Short N Sweet Bakery.
Julie+Pete: Here's to many more beautiful sunsets for the two of you! Aloha!
PS: The lack of Pete's dress shirt came during a little accident with some amazing teriyaki sauce during dinner. The best part: the vendors took his shirt, laundered it and returned it to him dry! Amazing people.
PPS: That BLUE DRESS! Love it.
