Fairmont Orchid Wedding | Kona, Hawaii Wedding Photographer | Sam + Kristi

We strolled around the Botanic Gardens as they told me about their first date. Sam and Kristi spent the evening there, enjoying the River of Lights, but even more so - each other! It wasn’t long before they were smitten and were planning adventures around the world. Sam asked for Kristi’s dads permission to ask her to be his wife, bought a ring, and then waited two years before he found the most perfect spot; Prague.

Perfect it was, and so was their gorgeous wedding day in Hawaii. Just north of Kona, they were surrounded by their closest family and friends as they promised to forever on the edge of the island. Waves crashed and the officiant blew through the shell as everyone witnessed their sweet love - and they wasted no time in starting the celebration! Sam, Kristi, and their wedding party danced their way into the reception and from there on out it was a beach party fit for the most fun of crowds!

It’s always an honor to be a part of incredible days and wonderful love stories - especially when couples take us to really fun locations and welcome us in like one of their dearest peeps. Big thank you to S + K, we’re so thankful and still smiling when we think of all the fun memories made!

Also a thank you to the vendors who helped make the day wonderful!
