Kristina and Charlie’s Hawaii Elopement began at the Four Seasons estate and ended on powder-soft sands beneath the full moon. Southside Beach set the stage, decorating with the gentle rolling tides and lush greenery. It was a pleasure to be a part of this incredibly special day.
Our session began at the sweeping grounds of the Four Seasons, where Karma Hill Photography captured getting ready coverage to document the big day. Kristina put on the finishing touches to her eye-catching ensemble. With a bodice-hugging lace gown, a seemingly endless train, and striking almond eyes, Kristina is a queen!
When the time was right, she tapped the love of her life on his shoulder and Charlie got his first look at his gorgeous bride. His reaction was pure love! Following the first look, we swept our couple away to Southside Beach to solidify their special union.
Kristina and Charlie currently live in Philadelphia, PA, where she works as a clinical inpatient pharmacist and Charlie works in surgical sales. Together they have a sweet furbaby named Troy and love cooking together, watching shows on downtime, and exercising. Kristina and Charlie met during their friends’ wedding rehearsal dinner. They hit it off instantly and had a blast during the Big Day.
It seems as if Kristina and Charlie’s love story centers on weddings because it was after another friend’s wedding in Greece when Charlie proposed! He kept the ring secret during the whole trip and popped the big question in Crete, where they spent the rest of the day beach hopping!
They decided to have a Hawaii Elopement after COVID put a wrench in their 300-person celebration plans. After talking it through with family, they decided an elopement would be the perfect silver lining. Kristina says the plan allowed them to “Keep it simple and stress-free and have it be really special and magical in its own way! We plan to have a larger celebration with our family and friends back on the East Coast down the road when large gatherings and parties are a possibility and fun again!”
We think this is a fantastic way to get the best of both worlds! Keep scrolling for more of this lovely couple and their incredible day!
Congratulations, Kristina and Charlie! You’re an amazing couple and a joy to work with! We wish you all the happiness in the years ahead!
