Multicultural Destination Wedding at Waimea Plantation Cottages, Kauai Hawaii

Occasionally, if you are very lucky, you get to meet the most delightful people who feel like you’ve known them for years, and who remind you why you love weddings. If you are extremely lucky, they agree to have you photograph their incredible Chinese-Indian-Hawaiian wedding for several days in Kauai and let you drag them out at ungodly hours of the morning to the edge of a 800 foot waterfall in their wedding clothes, fulfilling a decade-long dream to photograph a couple in the Waimea Canyon of Kauai. If you are stupidly, unbelievably lucky, the people you get to do all of that with are Traci and Rohan. 

Suffice to say, Devon and I have hundreds of favorite images from this weekend. The love and the community was such a joy to document, and it is deeply impossible to narrow down the experience to just a handful of images. It was such an honor, and also the most fun we could have possibly had. Despite some (ok, a lot) of travel chaos, it will go down as one of the best weddings we've ever had the pleasure of photographing.

Planning: Tie the Knot Hawaii

Venue: Waimea Plantation Cottages

Makeup: Goddess Artistry

Floral: Flowers by Emma

Not pictured: lots of discussions about pastries, true crime podcasts, anime, manta rays, books, early mornings, various travel shenanigans including a stranded broken down rental car which resulted in us sleeping on the beach, the most beautiful beach in the world, and me (who never cries) sobbing through Traci’s unbelievably beautiful hula performance. If you made it all the way to the end of this very long post, congrats, and please enjoy this adorable photo of my husband, exhausted, double-fisting two drinks (neither of them his, tragically), holding the groom's lei while we took some portraits, and just being the absolute best travel/business/life/chaos partner.
