moody beauty – seaside bridal session in hawaii

Last week I had the honor of attending Joelle Perry’s fashion show here in Honolulu where she showcased both some of her couture designs and some of her new ready-to-wear line. It was amazing! (see here). Today, Joelle Perry’s brilliance is on full display with this gorgeous seaside bridal editorial photographed by What A Day! Photography and Kylie Martin.

I love that this bridal inspiration shoot showcases some of the ‘darker’ sides to Hawaii – lava rocks and brooding beauty! Joelle Perry’s wedding dress is absolutely divine set against such a stunning backdrop and with such beautiful, natural details.

    Gorgeous! I love the black pearls!

  12. I love the “darker” sides of Hawaii – especially the black beaches of Maui. Stunning photo shoot!
