Aliomanu Beach, Kauai, Hawaii Destination Wedding


Jahni and John

When Jahni reached out to us about her Kauai wedding, we we're super excited, and totally honored! Jahni is a super talented wedding photographer located in Washington State, and we couldn't have been more thrilled to travel to paradise to photographer her beautiful backyard wedding at a stunning Airbnb on Aliomanu Beach!

From the Bride:

"Jon had plans to propose on Thanksgiving 2014, but the ring wouldn't be ready until the Friday after. I actually surprised Jon on that Thanksgiving by planning a trip to see the Buffalo Bills in Buffalo and go to Niagara Falls that December. He always jokes that was my way of proposing to him.  All of his friends and family convinced him to wait until we got to Niagara Falls to propose. I am sort of a control packing freak when it comes to trips so I sort of ruined my own proposal, haha. He couldn't find anywhere to hide the ring without me knowing. As I was emotional over leaving Presley, who was a little over a year at the time and we had never left her yet, he pulled out the ring box, in the car in the driveway of our house, and said "Here, maybe this will make you feel better," and proposed. I was so shocked, and so incredibly happy. It was so him to just "go for it." It's one of my favorite memories. We kept the engagement a secret for the first day of our trip and it was so fun taking a bunch of pictures and keeping it all to ourselves for a while. We face-timed all our friends and family the next day, and recorded their reactions."
