Loulu Palm Wedding | Ali + Niko | Hawaii Wedding Photographer


August 15, 2017

I don’t even know where to begin with these two! Their story is a real life romantic comedy. Niko grew up in Hawaii, but didn’t meet Ali until he was living in Seattle. He spotted the beauty from across the bar, where she and her girl friends were wearing leis. Come to find out, they were throwing Ali a going away party as she was getting ready to move to Hawaii of all places! Her flight out was the next day, so Niko offered to take her to brunch and give her some tips about Oahu, but they ended up hitting it off and talking for hours! They made it work long distance and eventually Ali moved back to Seattle, and now they have their happily ever after.

When I met Ali and Niko, I was immediately so excited about their wedding because they are so sweet to each other and they are so full of the aloha spirit! We spent most of our meeting talking about their love of Hawaii and the sea, and it was so clear that Hawaii was the perfect location for their wedding. They had their ceremony and reception at the beautiful Loulu Palms Estate (one of my all time favorite venues!) surrounded by friends and family sharing aloha with this amazing couple. It was hard to choose my favorite images from their wedding day, but here they are!
