The theme of this Big Island elopement was "the Forest meets the Sea," representing the Bride and Groom who come from Australia and Hawaii. Perched atop a cliff with dramatic views of the ocean and the lush, green Waipio Valley, this intimate ceremony achieved that perfect blend of forest and sea.

From Aria Studios... It was an overcast, drizzly day for this intimate Honokaa (Big Island) elopement. The theme of their wedding was "the Forest [to represent Sally] meets the Sea [to represent Teva]." Sally is from Australia, and Teva is from Hawaii. Aunty Tutu blessed the ceremony location and blew a conch shell as the couple walked to the alter. She serenaded the couple on her ukulele and performed a Hawaiian ceremony with Teva's parents as witnesses. Sally and Teva spoke their vows to each other with the dramatic Waipio Valley behind them.
