I had the privilege of shooting the wedding of Sheri and BJ, a truly wonderful couple from California! They were a bit camera shy at first and told me so in advance, but as the day went on, they became more and more comfortable in front of the camera until their shyness was nowhere to be found! The wedding was at one of my favorite Maui locations, the Olowalu Plantation House. Reverend Laki was the minister and he led the ceremony with a sense of regality, humor and great dignity. I always feel it is a great blessing and honor every time I have the opportunity to be in his presence.
The wedding co-ordinators were the wonderful Jamie and Lori Lawrence of Tropical Maui Weddings, who bring their aloha filled hearts to each and every wedding they co-ordinate. Once again I was serenaded by the wonderful singing and guitar playing of Jamie Lawrence who even played my request of “You Are My Only One” by James Taylor. What a treat to photograph while listening to Jamie’s beautiful playing! The couple chose “The Queen’s Choice”, my full day package, so I shot most of the day and have over 3,000 photographs that I am now processing from their wedding. I’ve included a small selection below so you may have a window to peak through to see Sheri and BJ’s beautiful joy filled wedding day!
With warmest aloha, Richard Marks
