Hawaii Elopement | Katie + Zach


Visiting Hawaii was an absolute dream! And this styled Hawaii elopement was one of the top highlights! I hear so many people talk about how Kauai is their favorite island and I can clearly tell why. Like seriously, I’m in love with this island. This was my first time visiting Kauai and it was such a blast adventuring to Waimea Canyon and all of the beaches. Above all, you just gotta go to see for yourself! The food, the people, and just the vibe of this island is incredible.

Everything about this trip has me dying to go back but, I had to come back to California for now…This Hawaii elopement setup was a complete dream! I mean just take a look at the photos to see for yourself. During this whole trip I just felt so much peace.

We have beautiful sunsets in California. However, the sunsets on islands are truly unmatched. I remember them from Bali and they were incredible and Kauai was no different. As the sunset over the mountain, it was truly amazing to watch and the lighting we got was STRAIGHT FIRE!!! The pictures, not an actual fire just in case that sentence was confusing. During the sunset, I felt so incredibly blessed to have had these amazing experiences during this Hawaii elopement.

Kauai and the Hawaii island have my heart. I love to travel. I mean I’m literally ALWAYS down for an adventure! This was the first I traveled somewhere and I didn’t want to leave and I could see myself staying for a very long time. That is to say, this place was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to. I plan to make my way to all of the islands one trip at a time.

I cannot wait to explore more! After that, I’m moving. I’m saying it right here and now. I will live in Hawaii for a year! And to think that this amazing place is apart of the US! The US has such a vast variety of places, sceneries, and landscapes you just have to get out there and explore. We are just so incredibly lucky! I can’t wait to go back to Hawaii for more elopements and weddings. This Hawaii elopement warmed my whole heart and Katie and Zach were just so fun to photograph! However, sad I was to leave I know I’ll be back sooner rather than later!
