Lauren and Ian grew up in the same neighborhood, and their beach elopement in Hawaii was over twenty years in the making! They both dreamed of a destination wedding but hadn’t truly considered Hawaii until the pandemic made traveling difficult. Enter the wedding of a lifetime on the sandy, tropical shore!
Reverend Kirkman began the ceremony with the traditional conch as Lauren graced the shore. Just as when Lauren and Ian first laid eyes on each other so many years ago, it was clear that fate brought them to this moment. Lauren looked stunning in a boho gown and her hair in a loose plait. We love how our couple’s classic attire paired against the rustic shore. A final blow of the conch announced their first kiss as husband and wife, and the magic was tangible!
Neither remembers when Ian first moved next door, but it was somewhere between the ages of nine and twelve. While they first did their own things due to an age difference, the attraction was always there. It wasn’t until college, when they returned home, that they found their soulmate connection. Life brought them together and took them apart, but when the time was right, they realized it was meant to be.
During a photo session, Ian got down on one knee to ask the big question. It was the perfect moment and Lauren’s reaction was captured forever on film! Keep scrolling for our couple’s gorgeous beach elopement in Hawaii!
