Intimate Oahu Beach Wedding: Jill + Jay

Meet Jill, a beautiful bride, who wed the love of her life Jay, a charming groom,  in an intimate Oahu secret beach wedding  surrounded by their precious children and closest friends.  Jill is from Oregon and Jay from Minnesota.  They stayed at the Disney Aulani resort in Ko Olina, which was only a short walk away from Lanikuhonua Beach.  They are both avid runners and work for Nike, which is where they met.  If I remember correctly, I think it involved an office party and karaoke and maybe even love at first sight.

I felt so lucky to witness their destination ceremony.   It was so clearly evident, that they are for each other in every way possible.  And by that I mean, you can just tell that they are really rooting for one another’s happiness and success in a selfless way.  So yes, I am a hopeless romantic and yes I love love and wedding vows and choked up grooms and glowing brides, and these two were a little bit of all of that.  What’s more, I felt like I was hanging out with friends.  The vibe between them, their family, and closest friends was so easy going, fun, and light hearted.  To top it all, not only were we in a colorful sunset location with the perfect wedding weather, a Hawaiian monk seal lay nearby.

So I’ll leave you with the lyrics of an Ingrid Michaelson song, The Way I Am, that sums what I saw between these two in the 2 short hours I spent with them.

If you were falling, then I would catch you
You need a light, I’d find a match
‘Cause I love the way you say good morning
And you take me the way I am

If you are chilly, here take my sweater
Your head is aching, I’ll make it better
‘Cause I love the way you call me, baby
And you take me the way I am

I’d buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair
Sew on patches to all you tear
‘Cause I love you more than I could ever promise
And you take me the way I am
You take me the way I am, you take me the way I am

Wishing you both all the joy in the world.
