B.J. and Mary’s wedding on the North Shore of Oahu was just as relaxed and beautiful as these two wonderful people.
Since they had both been transferred to Hawaii for work, they could not wait to invite their dearest friends and family to celebrate their wedding in their new home – aloha style! With the help of their fabulous coordinator Robin Sonner, their wedding at Turtle Bay Resort had the perfect aloha vibe. Bright, colorful details reflected their tropical surrounding, and Mary and B.J. spent the whole day completely calm, cool, and collected. They were simply glowing with peaceful joy.
There were so many breathtaking elements of this day: we love that their ceremony was just steps away from the Pacific ocean, and how Mary wore several special heirloom pieces as a tribute to her grandparents. We loved the dynamic between B.J. and his hilarious brother, who absolutely killed his Best Man speech!
But our favorite part of the day? Right before sunset, we captured some unforgettable moments with the newlyweds and a beautiful white horse! Mary absolutely LOVES horses, so it was the perfect coincidence that the stables were just next door.
The vast ocean, the humble stables, the attitude of simplicity and warmth – each moment so perfectly reflected how amazing this couple is. Mary and B.J. are both incredibly smart, with a quiet intelligence and strength that makes them all the more gracious. They are deeply beloved by their families, and we felt so welcomed into this intimate celebration – a celebration of a love that is sweet, that is forgiving, that is comfortable, that is all-consuming.
Mary and B.J. (and your wonderful families) – thank you for including us in this celebration! We felt truly lucky to have been a part of your wedding, and we wish you nothing but the best!
