Beachside Hawaii wedding: David + Nazare

categories Neat Venues, Real Weddings

We’re desperately longing for summertime already, even though it’s barely spring. This beautiful Hawaiian wedding isn’t making things any easier.

To start, doesn’t everyone need a portrait on a surf board?


Pretty much everyone that attended the wedding helped out in some way. One of David’s groomsmen, Johnny, owns a fine foods company and he did all the catering for the wedding as a gift to the couple. The groom’s parents grew the berries for the pies, and the other wedding party members helped out with the prep and cooking of the rest of the food. A family friend grew all the flowers on her estate and David’s mom Susan and a few of Nazare’s friends arranged them.

And the best part… the bride’s dress was custom made out of white bathing suit material, modeled after her favorite sundress. How cool is that?
