This elopement was something straight out of a fairytale.

Jake was on Oahu for work and Hannah was headed that way to visit when they decided- why not elope?! Hannah reached out to me about a week before their intended elopement date which that’s just how it is with elopements sometimes (I was so happy I was available)!

So they brought their immediate parents (who were so down for the adventure and so supportive and loving, too).

She brought two dresses, I’m not sure where the first is from but the second beaded dress is from David’s Bridal and she made her own bouquet.

They started the day with a first look at sunrise at the most beautiful look out on the south side of the island. Then they went for a moped ride and we made our way to the ceremony location which was at another lookout nearby. After their intimate ceremony (where we all cried), we hopped down to the beach just below to pop some champagne and get wet!
