Aussie-American Dream Wedding on the Big Island – Holualoa Inn Wedding

This wedding was a magical Hawaiian dream wedding!

We were invited by Shalane + Colby to capture their small destination wedding atop a hill on the Big Island. Shalane is American and Colby is Australian, and they share the same beautiful overseas love story we do.

With fifty guests, mostly from Australia and America, I (Athena) was so at HOME among the Australian accents and jokes – our hearts were full celebrating their fierce and faithful love story over the last 6 years, and what is going to become of their marriage together.

We were overwhelmed with gratitude to capture this day! To see our Day After Adventure shoot in Waipio valley, click here.
