With only their adorable 20-month-old son in attendance, Hannah and Colby’s Hawaii Beach Elopement was filled to the brim with love and sunshine! On the shore of Poʻolenalena Beach, the weather was textbook “tropical goodness,” with soft skies and warm ocean breezes. It was truly a blessing to work with Hannah and Colby and their sweet son EJ to make this special day a reality.
In quite possibly the cutest entrance we’ve ever seen, baby EJ walked Hannah down the aisle (with a little help from Mom, of course). Wearing a form-fitting gown with bead threading and a mermaid-flair train, Hannah even had the Maui ocean temporarily pausing in its tracks. We loved her beachy hairstyle with a floral demi-circle to match her rustic Hawaiian bouquet.
Sporting a beige jacket and a cabana print button-up by Ralph Lauren, Colby looks right at home against the backdrop of palm trees and sweeping ocean views. And of course, in a blue coral-themed shirt and adorable rolled up pants to match his dad, EJ is the perfect little guest of honor. We love how professional he was in his role! How cute is that face?!
Hannah has her doctorate in psychology and has been taking a much-needed break to raise their sweet toddler. She recently accepted a position to work with kids with behavioral needs at the Yellowstone Academy in their home state of Montana!
Colby is a public affairs specialist for the US Department of Interior. He’s also studied media, produced short films, and worked as a photojournalist and video producer for the US Navy. His work has been published by news outlets like CNN and last year made the cover of The Economist Magazine!
Hannah and Colby’s “meet cute” is one of the best we’ve heard! Colby was visiting his brother-in-law’s tattoo shop when his brother-in-law snapped a photo of Colby and posted it on his own Facebook page. He told all of his followers that Colby was available and looking for love, and those interested should stop by the shop!
And who should walk through the door first but Hannah herself! She admits to seeing the post beforehand but SWEARS she had an appointment. She walked in expecting a tattoo on the skin and left with one on her heart as well. Beautiful impressions like these last a lifetime. Keep scrolling for more of this sweet family!
Mahalo, Hannah and Colby, for trusting us with your Hawaii beach elopement. It was a beautiful day, and we had a wonderful time sharing it with you and your cutie. We wish you only the best in the years ahead!
