I am always jealous of this big families that bring all their kids and their kids over to Hawaii for vacation trips. I didn’t come from that sort of family but its the sort of family I hope I am creating. Danielle is from that sort of family. She came over to Hawaii looking like a rainbow (and smiling and being like a rainbow too) with her kids and husband and her brother and his family and her mom and her dad and her grandma as well. And then they hired me for some family photos and I got to fly to Kauai and have some fun on the beach.
I loved this wedding and this couple. They honored both of their backgrounds and families with a Chinese Tea ceremony at the Ritz Carlton followed by a traditional Indian wedding at Merrimans and then a more American style reception. It was so fun to shoot with all the outfits and colors and design. The wedding was featured in the national issue of The Knot winter 2017.
