Waikiki Hawaii Wedding Inspiration.
If you love a love story by the sea, this styled shoot in Waikiki is even more breathtaking than you can imagine. Sapphire blue waters serve as the foundation to this gorgeous scene where a bride and groom are entranced with one another aboard a classic boat. It doesn’t get much more relaxing than this intimate wedding experience straight from the water.
Everything about this shoot emits a relaxed yet sophisticated vibe, even with the couple’s fashion. The bride dons a modern and crisp white dress with a deep V-neck, open back, fitted bodice, and flowing sleeves and train.
The groom looks handsome and classic in a white tuxedo jacket with a white shirt, black bow tie, and black pants.
Her bouquet is a mix between tropical and traditional. A statement leaf holds a small collection of pink and white roses, as well as an ingenious white anthurium bloom.
This radiant couple is in awe of the scene around them as they are surrounded by a panoramic view of Waikiki.
The boat’s wooden interior is decorated with small flower arrangements that speak to the blooms in the bride’s bouquet. Small touches of florals here and there create bright but minimalistic spots of color.
As they look out towards the water, their expressions go from emotional to joyful. And their styles transition wonderfully from classic to casual chic without missing a beat.
The bride carries her bouquet in a lovely tote that’s perfect for a wedding getaway and the groom appears without his jacket, bow tie, and shoes.
Standing barefoot on the deck, the groom fills the air with the slow strum of a guitar as he admires the bride by his side.
The sky turns from blue to pink to purple as the sun goes down beyond the horizon. And they witness it all from a front row seat where they share a smile, a few sips and a laugh at the beautiful day they just experienced on the waters of Waikiki.
