Tara & Pekelo | Kauai Wedding Photographer

Tara and Pekelo chose Plantation Gardens in Poipu for their Kauai wedding and I was thrilled to be their photographer.  Although they both reside on the island of Oahu, Kauai was a great meeting point for their family and friends.  Kauai is famously known as “the most beautiful island” and based on their wedding, I’d have to agree.  This location allowed them to be surrounded by tropical desert flora and fauna.

This venue boasts two beautiful gardens, one with hundreds of cacti and another full of exotic orchids. In addition to this, the venue is steps away from the sea!  I recommend this site for anyone who loves Kauai and its gorgeous colors like vibrant greens, blues and reds.

Despite the rain, that forced us to move their ceremony to the lanai from the front lawn, nothing could damper their happiness which is so obvious in their smiles and tears of joy.  It let up just in time for their amazing sunset portraits and we took full advantage of it by walking a few minutes to the nearby beach in Poipu.

This day couldn’t have been possible without the talents and creative thinking of all vendors.  From a professional standpoint, I believe that hiring vendors who are confident enough in their skills to be able to think of alternative solutions quickly.  Hawaii is gorgeous and it’s all in thanks to the blessing of rain.  Rain happens! And it will not damper your special day if you have a team of amazing and talented vendors.

Be sure to check out their Maui engagement session!
