My Love and Light – Kelsey & Kris Elope in Hawaii

May 29, 2021

Kelsey and Kris chose to elope in Hawaii with their parents standing nearby to celebrate their union. Southside Beach decorated for the occasion with soft lighting and plenty of swaying palms, not to mention the aquamarine ocean and a tangerine sunset.

Kelsey and Kris stood together as the ceremony began. Wearing a simple sweetheart gown with lace applique and waves topped with a delicate flower crown, Kelsey was stunning. Decked out in slate gray with leather accents, Kris looked great himself. We loved the subtle sweet moments shared between our couple, like how Kris gently kissed Kelsey’s lei before draping it over her shoulders. There was so much love on the shore that day!

Our Couple’s Story

Kelsey and Kris are both lawyers. In their free time, they like to cook together, read books, and play with their two sons… who happen to have tails and meow. Their first trip as a couple was to Oahu and they absolutely loved it. They dreamed of returning and exploring new islands, so the decision to elope in Hawaii came naturally. 

Kelsey and Kris met in law school and began dating in 2015. Turns out, the verdict was love! They got engaged in January of 2019 while on vacation in Mexico when Kris asked Kelsey to marry him over dinner in their hotel room. Kelsey said it was the ideal proposal for her, intimate, private, and emotional.
