A Day to Remember: Leigh and Pat’s Oahu Elopement Adventure

As a wedding photographer, I have the honor of capturing some of the most special moments in a couple's life. And let me tell you, Leigh and Pat's all-day adventure elopement on Oahu was a day to remember!

The day started with an exciting paddle-boarding adventure in the morning. Leigh and Pat explored the beautiful coast of Oahu and took in the peaceful waters and breathtaking scenery. It was the perfect way to start their wedding day and get a little exercise before the big event.

Next, it was time to get ready. Leigh and Pat chose to get ready at the historic Queen Kapiolani Hotel, located in the heart of Waikiki. This hotel provided a beautiful backdrop for their getting-ready photos and added a touch of vintage charm to their day.

The ceremony took place at Laie Beach Park, a stunning beach park located on the North Shore of Oahu. With the warm sun shining down on them and the sound of the waves crashing in the background, Leigh and Pat exchanged vows in front of a small gathering of friends and family.

As a photographer, one of my favorite moments of the day was the portrait session. Leigh and Pat posed with a canoe filled with beautiful flowers and the stunning scenery of Oahu in the background. It was a truly romantic and unforgettable moment, and I was grateful to capture it for the couple.

This all-day adventure elopement on Oahu was a truly special day for Leigh and Pat. They enjoyed a wide range of activities and beautiful landscapes that made for a truly unforgettable wedding day. If you're considering eloping, why not consider Oahu as your destination? The island offers so much and is perfect for a unique and memorable wedding day.

In conclusion, Leigh and Pat's all-day adventure elopement on Oahu was a joy to be a part of. As a photographer, I was grateful to capture the love and joy of the couple on this special day. I wish Leigh and Pat a lifetime of happiness and adventure!
