Destination Wedding Photography, Kauai, Hawaiian Islands.  What can I say? I loved this wedding. Intimate and small. They and their family were kind and gracious.  When I arrived to the Lihue airport later in the evening, I saw the milky way and the stars prominently displayed in the sky.  Wow. During the day, the Island was magical and tropical. I was waiting for a unicorn to pop out and photo bomb my couple.  The Botanical garden for which they were married is probably the best venue on Kauai to get married, with lush gardens, Kauai’s beach, ponds, acres and acres of rich trees. I almost felt like I was in the jungle at Disneyland with all the sounds, only it was real.  I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to photograph Cori and Michael’s wedding and spend a little time with their gracious family. Congratulations to Michael and Cori and to their families.
