Keri & Drew met at a Halloween party 3 years before they ‘re-met’. Timing is everything, and that second meeting turned into marriage 4 years later! They had always talked about eloping, however, when they announced their engagement all of their family wanted to come to their wedding. Keri’s words in her initial inquiry tell it best:
“The planning was happening so easy and perfectly we were scheduled to get married at the Poncha train hotel on the rooftop overlooking the entire city of New Orleans it was perfect, magical, modern, sunset with intimate family and friends but it kind of spiraled out of control with a lot more guests and entertaining and money and details we were getting so overwhelmed . We never even looked at the options of eloping in the very beginning which is what we really wanted to do. We have already booked a 14-day honeymoon between Kauai and Maui.
So here we are nine weeks out from our original date and we decided this past week all we really want is to elope.
Our invitations were set to go out this week we sent out a save the date so we contacted all of our family and friends to let them know and I’m just trusting that God will put me with the right person to help us simply have a beautiful Hawaiian intimate wedding.”
They were blessed with an absolutely gorgeous day and had a very special, romantic, enchanted ceremony with photos in Princeville & Hanalei, just the two of them! It was such an honor and pleasure to help this wonderful couple realize their wedding dream and we wish them all the best!!
