Denise + David :: Way Up High (Maui, Hawaii) Part I of III

Edmonton Wedding PhotographersAfter a 10-year courtship, including a 5-year engagement, Denise + David’s Hawaiian nuptials at an ocean-front estate were the perfect reflection of them; relaxed, gorgeous, outdoorsy and incredibly heart-warming.  Everyday was an adventure for Denise + David, their family & friends, whether it was scuba diving with the manta rays, swimming with the turtles (duuuuude, Anton’s favourite) , kayaking, surfing or snorkeling with the fishes, they enjoyed all that Hawaii had to offer.

Denise and her two bridesmaids, Tammy and Shilo, have been friends since Junior High.  They spent the morning together getting ready and having their make up done by Clara, Crispin’s (one of David’s groomsmen) wife.  Although the girls woke early, the boys weren’t quite as prompt and didn’t arrive with food until noon.

David and his groomsmen, Crispin & Alec, got ready in the reception tent.  While Crispin’s wife was styling the girls, he was styling the groom and persuaded David to put some gel in his hair – a first for David!

David’s fashion faux pas isn’t just wearing socks with sandals, it’s wearing black socks with sandals.  Denise was adamant that he wouldn’t do that on their wedding day…

so he took them off before the ceremony 😉

The ceremony took place on a cliff overlooking the ocean.  Denise arrived a bit more than fashionably late, and although Tammy & Shilo remarked that Denise is always late for things, this time it was them making her late as they were having last minute touches done to their make up.  David’s grin said it all the moment he saw his bride coming down the aisle and Tammy’s teary eyes were waterworks by the time  she reached the altar.

Reverend Ken not only married Denise + David, he also serenaded them with his rendition of  ‘Somewhere over the Rainbow’ on the ukulele.  Following the musical interlude, Denise + David exchanged their handwritten vows.
