You know Ed Sheeran’s song, “Perfect” that says, “‘Cause we were just kids when we fell in love”? That song could have been written about Bihn and Jover. They started dating when they were just 13 years old!! I already know what you’re thinking, that is so young! Well they thought the same thing and split, only to end up getting back together when they were 16. Talk about meant to be!
These two are so in love with Hawaii. They’ve been traveling here for the past six years, and Jover even proposed to Bihn on Maui. It only made sense for them to tie the knot on one of the islands! They decided to have an intimate wedding at the stunning Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel on the Big Island. (Side note about the Big Island: We were all there shortly after the volcano started erupting! We were on the opposite side of the island but we felt the earthquakes the day before the wedding. All was well, but it’s an interested tid bit about their big day!) They went with a minimal modern look, which I absolutely love and had so much fun photographing all the simple and beautiful details. Their reception tent had hanging chandeliers which was a nice elegant touch. They were both so sweet, and their guests were amazing. We had a great time the entire day, and I even got Bihn to kick off her stilettos to take some fun photos on the rocks overlooking the ocean. Take a look at my favorites from the day, and be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook for more updates and sneak peeks!
