A sweet day for a sweet couple

Chris & Jaerim are an amazing couple who decided to get married in beautiful Hawaii because it is a place Jaerim called home for so long. She lived here for 6 years when studying for her Masters and Doctoral degrees (whew!) and then started teaching at Princeton University from there. 

Both families came together to meet for the first time and Hawaii was the perfect place for them to meet between Korea and the mainland USA. What an awesome way to celebrate together on the island for a family honeymoon! 

Their wedding day at Kualoa Ranch, Paliku Gardens was stunning and intimate with their closest family and friends, and their first look was such a sweet moment. We love a sweet reaction from our grooms and Chris was floored by his bride! 

They had their ceremony overlooking the view to the ocean and Chinaman’s Hat island and it included a song sung by two of her best friends. Then everyone headed to the reception for good toasts and dancing. One of my personal favorite details were their hanging signs on the bride & groom’s seat, both saying “Doctor”. Now that’s an impressive couple!
