december seventeen two oh twelve.

 photos by Sean Hower Maui Wedding Photographer of Hower Photography

i still can't look at these pictures without experiencing pure elation. the entire whirlwind of that week from Ryan surprising me to traveling to Hawaii to getting married to my best friend on a beach in South Maui at sunset, all of it was an absolute dream come true. i hope you enjoy these snapshots (captured by the incredible Sean of Hower Photography - who was absolutely phenomenal) as much as we love looking at them again and again.

and if you want to see more pictures from our wedding, Sean created a gorgeous slideshow of our wedding pictures (with soothing Jack Johnson playing in the background). click HERE or scroll down below! enjoy!



much love.
{happy monday, friend.}

p.s. for those who have inquired and might inquire, my wedding dress is from Red Velvet two seasons ago. as soon i saw it was for sale, i fell in love with it and bought it. i carefully laid it away in my closet, ready to go for the day we would elope. there could not have been a more perfect dress for my dream wedding.

  2. So, so beautiful!

    The waterworks started by the second picture... Jack is near and dear to my heart :)

    I'm in the process of planning our wedding (elopement?)... did your family have any issues with your elopement? I'm currently trying to break the news that we won't be married in a church... our families say it's our decision, but I know they mean otherwise :/ Any tips?
