Mikayla & I had an instant connection when we first interacted – she found me on Instagram and her initial email to me mentioned that she loved my cats – so I knew we were meant to work together!!! 🙂 Mikayla and Ben have two little furballs themselves, and they are just the cutest little family. You might remember them from their warm and sunny Georgetown engagement session last summer!
Their Herrington on the Bay wedding was so bright, bold and beautiful! Hawaiian influences were displayed through the beautiful tropical florals, palm & monstera leaves, and vibrant colors. They even had a professional ukulele player to add to the Hawaiian vibe! And Herrington on the Bay was the perfect location – the palm trees, beach views, and resort-like feel was the icing on the cake!
They celebrated alongside their closest friends and family. They had a small but bold wedding party that stood by their sides during the intimate, emotional ceremony. The reception that followed brought more happy tears with lots of loving toasts & stories, as well as a super packed dance floor!
One of my favorite things about this wedding day were all the personal touches. Mikayla handmade almost all of their decorations (including the floral arrangements!) – I am so impressed by her skills!
Mikayla and Ben, congratulations on this exciting new adventure! Mahalo!
Loving these bright colors and tropical patterns!
These necklaces belong to Mikayla and her mom – they were made from her dad’s wedding band <3
Seriously, how cute is that tiny little pineapple on her bouquet?! I DIED when I found out it was 100% real!!! So adorable!
Also, that strip of fabric around the stems is from one of Mikayla’s dad’s tshirts <3
They shared the sweetest first look by the beach!
Their first dance was perfectly coordinated!
After a bright, sunny day, we were excited to pop outside for some quick sunset portraits! Love that soft light!
