Congratulations to Maria & John!  It was truly an honor to photograph their wedding!  Andy and I had such a great time with everyone with their warm welcomes and kind hearts.  We  knew that their day was going to be special…the day was beautiful from beginning to end…  Thank you once again for allowing us to be a part of your day!  Hope you had a great time in Hawaii!

They started out their day getting ready in their homes.  I captured Maria getting ready…
