R+D’s Tiki Wedding at The Hilton Waterfront and Don the Beachcomber

Jun 24


Ryan + Demi wanted to keep their wedding low key, casual and fun just like them!  Ryan loves to visit Tiki bars and they live right next to Don the Beachcombers, so it was the obvious choice for their wedding.  These two were so easy to work with because their love for each other shines through in every photo!

Demi chose to have her best friend as her MOH.  These two have been friends since they were 5, I guess at first the friendship was a little rocky, but now it seems rock solid!  It is easy to see these two have fun together and have each other’s back.

Demi’s dress was so adorable and it even has pockets!!  Every detail was simple and elegant!  

I love when couples take the time to do a first look and get a little alone time before the ceremony. We found the perfect spot for the bride and groom to share a few private moments, over looking the ocean on their private balcony at the Waterfront Hilton!!  My second shooter and I had to “hide” from each other’s cameras but I think it worked out perfectly. I love working with Amanda she makes shots like this possible.

I love how they can make each other laugh!  Pure JOY!!

Of course every couple needs a sweet, quite moment on their wedding day.

And then it was time to head to Don the Beachcomber for their vows!!

Happiness is when you have your loved ones by your side for your biggest moments.

The couple asked everyone to take their cell phones out and take a photo…. then they asked everyone to put them away for the rest of the ceremony so they could enjoy the vows.  Not to worry they had professional photographers to capture everything 😉  I LOVE this idea!!

First kiss as husband and wife!

They are so adorable!!  

They danced the night away with their family and friends and enjoyed music form the Ramsy Brother’s band.

Sealing the perfect day with a one last sweet kiss.
