Hawaii Adventure Wedding | Erika & Nick

bride and groom in Hawaii adventure wedding

Erika and Nick had a life long love story that lead to their Hawaii adventure wedding. They were just 10 years old when they met at school. They were paired together in class for  an “icebreaker” exercise to interview each other. Erika said she was secretly hoping she would be paired up with Nick, and Nick said he was a little nervous because she was a girl. Fast forward 20 years, and they were saying “I do” on the side of a mountain in Hawaii!

Erika and Nick originally planned a trip to Hawaii for 2020, but for obvious reasons had to be cancelled. Little did Erika know, Nick planned to propose while visiting. Instead he made the proposal super special with a hike at home, and they used their travel credits to elope in Hawaii. Hiking for their Hawaii adventure wedding only made sense. I loved how everything came full circle for them!

Their review:

“Chelsea is amazing!! I saw her pictures on Instagram and knew that I had to have an intimate elopement adventure shoot. Right from the start, I felt like I knew her for years. She made us feel so comfortable when planning an elopement shoot when we were so far away (we’re from the East Coast and never have been to Hawai’i before). She’s very down to earth and takes the time to really know her couples! She really listened to what we were envisioning for the day and gave us recommendations for vendors, places to eat and things to do around the area. The pictures came out BREATHTAKING!! We keep getting compliments on them. The moment was so intimate and Chelsea captured it better than we could have imagined. Looking at the pictures takes us back to the best day ever! Book her!!”

I know that I’m biased, but you should take her advice and book here! 😉
