Oh how I LOVEDDDD being a part of this wedding. Although I have shot in Hawaii before for destination elopements or regular sessions, this was my first local Hawaiian wedding and it was pure MAGIC. From the fire throwing and hula dancing, all the way to the local music (the bride literally surprised the groom and brought in Fiji, the Groom’s favorite local singer) How. cool. is.that. The day started out beautifully with their ceremony. It was a packed house! Everyone there you could tell just love Mata and Nadia so much.
Following the ceremony, was their reception. MAN it was amazing! So many dances, and performances…It was basically like a Luau and concert wedding! SO COOL. They also have a tradition in the Samoan culture to throw money at the couple as they dance. That was AWESOME. Raining money? Heck yes to that!
