Every wedding has its own energy, its own unique vibe. For these two, it was all about fun.
The atmosphere on their wedding day was filled with a light-hearted joy and everyone was ready to celebrate. Amy and Riley chose to celebrate their love at the majestic Na Aina Kai Botanical gardens on the north shore of Kauai. This couple radiated joy and laughter and were celebrated by a wonderful group of family and friends. One of my favorite parts of the job is seeing family and friends coming together for a special occasion. It’s a privilege to witness.
The Ceremony was held at the Seaside Meadow just a few feet from the sand. You could feel the salt in the air and the hear the gentle roll of the waves as the guests patiently waited for the bride to arrive. The ceremony was officiated by a friend of the bride, who delivered some big laughs and even a few tears as the couple made their commitment to each other.
The party kicked off quickly with signature cocktails and an adult version of shaved ice. The wedding was catered by Destination Events and they crafted some unique appetizers to keep this fun loving crowd well fed .The dinner reception took place under a clear top tent that was beautifully designed styled Legacy Events.
Taking advantage of the expansive botanical garden, we headed out by golf cart to create some stunning portraits of the newly weds. We had some fun working around the incredible gardens and found some perfect backgrounds that highlight the more tropical landscaping around the Ka’ula lagoon. The are a number of idyllic settings for beautiful photos around the gardens. This is one of the many reasons I love working at Na Aina Kai.

This group was not shy, and they flooded the dancefloor on the very first song of the evening. The warm glow from the clear top tent radiated through the night as everybody celebrated on their feet dancing the night away.
This was a really fun day to be a part of and looking back at these images has me smiling.
Hope you enjoy!
