Hawaii wedding on the North Shore: Lauren + Syd

It was a hot September day, tropical sun shining strong and bright on the grass area of the ceremony. Lauren and Syd intentionally chose this particular location for their wedding, for it was the same exact place were they met and fell in love, and the same spot where later Syd proposed to Lauren. Charged with a special and emotional meaning, filled with loving family and dear friends, the location by the Haleiwa beach house became a silent witness of the celebration of aloha and the union of the couple.

The ceremony was conducted by Kelvin Ho, a kind and gentle officiant from Kauai, who made the event a truly spiritual, deep and unique experience and embraced the couple and their ohana with warm aloha. Many Hawaiian wedding customs and traditions filled the air with mystique energy and it was a true honor to be a part of the ceremony as a wedding photographer. I will always be grateful to Lauren, an incredibly warm and beautiful person, for trusting in me enough to invite me into her life for this very special day.

Many thank you to the coordinator Kylee Mar who made formal photos quick and easy, and was always helpful and kind, no matter how busy she was at the moment.

Ho’okahi naau, Ho’okahi mana o’lana,
Ho’okahi malamalama, Ho’okahi ‘oiai’o,
Ho’okahi ola, Ho’okahi ‘oli ‘oli,
E kahe pu ana, e ulu pu ana,
Mai ke kumu ho’okahi mai.

One heart, One hope,
One light, One truth,
One life, One joy,
Flowing together, growing together,
From a single source.
