We got engaged on our one year dating anniversary, on an anniversary trip to Kauai. On the way to dinner Tom was really quiet and seemed preoccupied, we checked in with the restaurant a little early and walked down to the beach to catch the sunset. That’s where Tom got down on one knee and told me that the last year had been the best of his life, and that he wanted to spend the rest of his years with me.
About the Dress
Allure Bridals //
I wore Allure Bridal #9555. While I was visiting my best friend in NYC she said that we had to go to Kleinfeld! I gave Shay a list of my wants, mostly things to flatter and hide my body… sleeves, modest cut, no bling, etc… and he humored me for a bit, then he pulled out this dress and said, “this is nothing that you asked me for, but just trust me.” And it was perfect! Instead of seeing a pretty dress, I saw myself exactly how I wanted to look on my wedding day.
About the Wedding
September 7, 2019 //
Poipu, Kauai //
We were married on the south shore of Kauai in an intimate ceremony, with only three guests in attendance. My best friend played Life is Beautiful by Keb Mo on ukulele and we incorporated the many meanings of aloha into our ceremony. After we said “I do” on the beach, we hiked up the cliffside for the most dramatic sunset portraits, and then took everyone to dinner at the restaurant where we got engaged. Photos: Sam Starns
