Fairmount Orchid Wedding PhotographerThis bride’s original wedding date was washed away by 2011’s Hurricane Irene and I was devastated when her original plans had to be cancelled. Not to be deterred the bride and groom were married privately on their original wedding date and moved on to plan a fantastic celebration for their family and friends at the Fairmount Orchid on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii. The bride and groom renewed their vows by the ocean and then had an incredible dinner at the Fairmount’s Browns Beach House restaurant. The bride got ready with her bridesmaids who had traveled to Hawaii to be with her. The light in the room was extraordinary and the space was so vast that I was able to use my beloved 70-200mm lens to take the getting ready pictures. I love the beautiful soft light on the bride’s face, her gentle expression, and the wonderful light also on the face of her bridesmaid. While I’m sorry their original wedding date was rained out I was so honored to go to Hawaii and document this event for them!
