Intimate Oceanside Elopement on Oahu Hawaii: Chari and Justin

March 8, 2023

Chari and Justin decided to have their Intimate Oceanside Elopement on Oahu, Hawaii. Despite being in the middle of the winter months, they were blessed with beautiful weather and a golden sunset. It was perfect, private, and meaningful.

Nowadays, intimate elopements are an increasingly popular option for couples who want to avoid the stress and pressure of a big fancy wedding. Private and intimate elopements allow couples to truly focus on their love and commitment to one another. Chari and Justin are one of those couples. They chose to have an intimate oceanside elopement on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii.

Chari and Justin chose to have their elopement on Oahu’s Secret Beach, a little-known gem that boasts crystal-clear waters and a cove that seals occasionally visit. They wanted their special day to be about them, and only them. They didn’t want the stress of planning a big wedding and instead opted for a small, intimate elopement.

First Look at The Four Seasons in Winter

The couple started their day at The Four Seasons in Ko’olina, Oahu Hawaii. The resort has beautiful landscaping and architecture which provided the perfect backdrop for their first look. When the couple saw each other for the first time, the look of love and joy on their faces was priceless.

This elopement is special not only due to the choice of location but also because they were able to honor their wishes for privacy and intimacy. The couple chose the month of February which is a winter month in Hawaii but, the weather was in their favor. It was as if the Hawaiian Islands were trying to impress them with the sunset views despite the winter season.

The Four Seasons in Ko’olina is the right choice for the first look. Its white walls with wooden accents and lush indoor greenery provided an intimate yet luxurious elegant setting. I was able to capture their loving glances and expressions toward each other. When we were happy with the images, we walked towards the nearby public beach where the ceremony will commence.

Intimate Elopement on Oahu: A Dream Come True

The couple walked hand in hand toward the next location: The Secret Beach. There’s something magical about an intimate elopement on the beach. The sound of the waves crashing, the salty ocean air, and the stunning views create an ambiance like no other.

This little beach with a cove was a dream come true for the intimate ceremony that the couple had in mind. The overall vibe of the beach and the soft sand beneath their feet made the couple feel grounded and in complete serenity. They wanted to keep their wedding day private and personal, and they succeeded in doing so.

Chari and Justin basked in the warm glow of the sun as they exchanged vows and became husband and wife. They felt a sense of peace that they will always remember because they were able to create a day that was truly theirs, without any outside influences or distractions. It was not only intimate and special to them but also a unique experience that allowed them to connect with nature and the beauty of the island.

From Megan’s Lens

Chari and Justin’s elopement was a reminder that a wedding day doesn’t have to be extravagant or according to traditions. It can be as simple as an intimate oceanside elopement of two people in love and promising a lifetime of togetherness, surrounded by the beauty of the ocean and nature.

On that day, I felt fortunate to witness the wedding of this beautiful couple. The way they look at each other, and the way they converse and hold each other shows that they have a deep connection. I was happy about the results of the images from that day. I’m sure that when they look at these photos, they will feel a sense of nostalgia and remember exactly how they felt during their oceanside elopement.  

Chari and Justin’s intimate wedding was a truly special occasion. It was exactly what they dreamed of and more. The stunning views of Secret Beach and the Four Seasons in Ko’olina provided the perfect setting for their day. The couple’s love for one another was radiating in every moment of their elopement, and it was clear that they are meant to be together forever.

From Megan: “Chari and Justin’s elopement stood out to me because of their love and connection. I will always advise all of my couples, to stay true to who they are and what they want. If an intimate beachside ceremony is what you want, then don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.”
