indie romance

From Christina Sturgis Photography “For the inspiration behind this indie romance wedding I knew I wanted something that speaks to me and match up to my personality & genre of photography. My weakness is anything that’s moody: romantic candlelit dinner, string lights, and everything boho.

This styled shoot may be the highlight of my year, thus far. I had a blast the whole time photographing the beautiful bride & Groom. On top of that I laughed till my belly hurts and enjoyed every single one of my vendors, whom I call good friends and family now. They’re all amazing and the best in Oahu, Hawaii!”

“We wanted something that was romantic, sultry, and intimate. It’s very rare will you see couples in Hawaii willing to have an intimacy indoors…Hawaii is just too beautiful! Every time I see images that has anything to do with candles, small gathering of just the bride and groom, and the intimacy between the two just pulls me closer.

For flowers we chose King Protea and roses. Nothing screams more tropical than a stunning protea. The Happy Haku did an amazing job on the flowers table sets adding sorts of blooms to compliment the themes of this indie wedding styled shoot.”

“Handmade and DIY details Sarah from The Simple Flourish Calligraphy went above and beyond to create the long table scroll of love letters. She also made the vows, escort cards, wedding invites, wax stamp seal, and all little details.

Gorgeous tablescapes definitely came naturally to Chavah at Vida Chic. She the vision came more to life with blue and red taper-candles, gold flatware, purple glassware, amazing tropical flowers, and fillers to compliment the bride’s bouquets, and lets not forget the fruits! I am so glad she brought persimmons, papaya, and pomegranate.”
