Celeste and Richard’s Hawaii Beach Elopement was a tropical paradise painted in gold. Polo Beach set the stage with white sands and sapphire waters as our couple said “I do” beneath the rolling sky. When it comes to take-your-breath-away beautiful, this ceremony was that and then some!
Richard waited patiently on the shore, his back turned as his lovely bride approached. Wearing a halter dress with ribbed accents and layers of chiffon, Celeste is a goddess walking. As Richard turned, his joy was overwhelming.
Celeste hails from South Africa and moved to the states after teaching in South Korea for five years. Richard is a doctor working on his radiology residency at BAMC in San Antonio. Together they have two pets: Noodle (a kitten Celeste found on the street in South Korea) and Daegu (their new staffy pup) named after the city they met in.
Our bride tells their story: “We met in Daegu, South Korea in 2019. I was working there as a teacher and Richard was working as a physician on the army base. It wasn’t love at first sight 😂 but he slowly wiggled his way into my heart with his humor and charm. Before I knew it, I was completely smitten with this American doctor. We got engaged in Korea and applied for a K1 fiance visa. It was a long wait but ultimately worth it!” Keep scrolling for more of this amazing couple!
Congratulations, Celeste and Richard! Your Hawaii beach elopement was simply gorgeous. It was a joy working with you! We wish you only the best in the decades ahead.
