A Wedding in Waimanalo with Kathryn + Peter

Part of the fun in working with my couples is seeing how they craft their day. Kathryn and Peter created a laid-back, beautiful down-home wedding at a local historic home nestled right on the beach tucked away in the countryside neighborhood of Waimanalo. The Alfred Hocking Beach House is on the Register of Historic Places, built in 1926 by the prominent businessman and statesman, who founded Primo Beer, one of Hawaii's first beers, and represented Maui in the Senate of the Republic of Hawai‘i.
The property itself was beautifully taken care of, with a lava rock wall surrounding the front lawn, perfect for hosting everyone, and a beachfront backyard for their ceremony. They thought of all the details for their guests, such as cafe lights over the dance floor, fizzy "farm-to-cup" cocktails served by Gazoz in their super cute pink trailer, a photo bar, and freshly made itty bitty mini gluten-free donuts by Li’ili’i Donuts. Friends dancing hula and a local food menu just added to the vibe.
Kathryn and Peter chose a romantic tropical palette accented by touches of orange — it suited their bright sunny energy perfectly, and their idea of pocket boutonnieres for their groomsmen, "How about this, Sylvia?" Uhm yes?!
It was both magical and charming, with lots of little touches that made their day special. Congratulations Kathryn and Peter!
