Connie & John Elope on Oahu's Windward Coast! May 8, 2019 23:18
Magnificent Waimanalo Beach on Oahu's windward coast has long been the subject of Hawaiian songs and a place where lovers rendezvous. Waimanalo's allure is irresistible and the location Connie & John chose for their recent elopement.
The bride's day began with an In-Room Hair & Makeup session by one of Married With Aloha's beauty professionals. Just a short while later, Connie was ready for her Big Day!
The morning was picture-perfect with balmy trades and cotton clouds dotting the tropical sky. The onsite coordinator and minister greeted the couple with warm aloha. As is tradition with Hawaiian weddings, the bride and groom exchanged fresh flower leis and then repeated their vows to one another. John was teary-eyed as the couple exchanged rings.
Following the ceremony, the newlyweds toasted one another with sparkling cider and enjoyed a relaxed photo session with their photographer, Brett. With the powdery white sand tickling their toes, eliciting smiles from the newlyweds was not a difficult task and the resulting images will provide the couple with a lifetime of happy memories.
The breath-taking scenery of Waimanalo prompted the couple to say they'd be back again for a vow renewal ceremony. Everyone at Married With Aloha wishes Connie & John a wonderful life together!
