I use way too many exclamation marks, but I'm really just that excited!!!! I want to know what moves your heart. I say "that's so funny" quite a bit, but it can mean a number of things. I am a lover of donuts and tea. I floss every night before bed! I love the idea of being spontaneous, but rarely do things unplanned. I am the youngest of four girls, but I'm taller than all my sisters. I would love to open a cafe someday. I am fascinated by the bridegroom God and his ravished heart for all of humanity

    Hanalei and Austin MARRIED Part Three

    It’s been a little bit over a month since Hanalei and Austin got married, but I still have people asking me how it was being their photographer for the day. I absolutely loved it and really enjoy telling people about their very intimate homemade wedding. I think this last part of their special day is my favorite- if you missed the first two parts, here’s part 1 and part 2.

    The wedding banquet was held at a good friend’s backyard in San Marino. I arrived before the festive night began and just loved the way everyone was helping out- some were cooking and cutting fruits in the kitchen, others setting up tables and decorations outside. Here’s a look at some of the details..

    I love this next picture that Loretta snapped while people were beginning to trickle in- 

    and before the sun set, we stole the wedding party away from the guests for some fun group shots. They had such a fun wedding party!

    now let the festivities begin!

    All of Hanalei’s aunties! Her grandma has THIRTEEN kids and EIGHTY grandchildren!! And can you believe these cute little wedding toppers were made by H+A’s friends?!

    (Loretta captured the perfect moment! Hana was so determined to get that cream on Austin’s face! haha)

    (a few more dancing pictures from Loretta)

    after all the fun, everyone gathered around the front door to send Hanalei and Austin off. This was such an exciting part! Bubbles and joy filled the air as we waited and waited….and finally, the door creaked open and the newlyweds dashed through their loved ones one last time before driving off. 

    Oh Hanalei and Austin, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day. We all love you guys so much! Blessings to your new life together! : )

      Thank uuuuu for capturing all the moments of that day. It was so crazy! No one even reminded me to throw my bouquet, or for austin to take off my garter & toss it…that day seems like blur! but you were there for every hug, every laugh, and even the tears. Thanks Eileen and Loretta <3 These pictures are priceless.
