Chelsea + Scott | Married!

Happy Thursday! I’m super excited to share this gorgeous Hanalei Wedding (Kauai) with you. Not a bad way to head into the end of the week!

Chelsea + Scott!

Chelsea and Scott are the sweetest couple, and I was so excited to finally meet them! Chelsea’s mom grew up in Hawaii, and her family has been traveling to Kauai for YEARS. Her dad’s welcome toast had me in tears. It was so sweet to listen to him talk about watching Chelsea and her sister as toddlers walking in the sand in Kauai all the way through diving later on in teenage years. What a history and amazing memories in such a special place. And, her parents were also married on Kauai 35 years ago.

They rented a few houses up in Hanalei for the week. The ladies house on the left and the guys house on the right.Hanalei Wedding Kauai

The cutest stationery, including a little gold pineapple paperclip. Kauai had been very cold (for Kauai) and rainy, but the sun decided to make an appearance for their wedding day, and it didn’t rain. It was perfect timing!


She had the most gorgeous dress. I LOVE the lace detail on the bottom!waiwaiwaiwai

Homemade Bouquets

The ladies actually did their own bouquets. I was super impressed! I thought they looked amazing. waiwai

The First Look.

I love that they exchanged a note before they actually turned to see one another. There was a perfect little path for Chelsea to walk up to meet Scott! waiwaiwaiwaiwaiwaiwai

We only spent a few minutes at the beach for portraits. It was CRAZY windy. waiwaiwai


Waioli Huiia Church

After portraits around the houses, we headed over to the famous little Green Church in Hanalei, Waioli Huiia Church, for some more portraits.


They had their community group from church pray over them prior to the ceremony. It was amazing. Such powerful prayers and sweet friendships.wai
