After a delightful day spent with Jen and Ryan for their engagement session, the time had finally arrived for them to say "I do!" And they did just that in front of a beautiful waterfall, amid swaying palm trees, and surrounded by their beloved family and friends at Jones Crossing. The misty, rainy day allowed the bride and groom plenty of time to prepare indoors. When the time came for portraits of the groom and his groomsmen, the rain had stopped for the rest of the day! The bride and her father were escorted to the ceremony by a fairytale horse and carriage. Sunlight shined through the palm branches during Jen and Ryan's sweet and personal ceremony, and it was sheer perfection! Jen and Ryan, thank you for choosing me to document your first day as husband and wife! I hope you enjoyed the beauty of the Hawaiian islands during your honeymoon! Enjoy some favorites from your amazing day! Friends and family can view their entire gallery here.
