akane and ben :: kapalua, maui engagement session and wedding

May 27, 2011

This delightful couple has a special place in our hearts! Their calm demeanor, lightheartedness and their sweet love for each other is exceptional.
Akane and Ben met in med school, she is a pediatrician and he is an ER doctor – Im sure that peacefulness come is handy.

They had family and friends from Japan, Peru and US celebrating their special day. One of our favorite guest was Bens grandfather – Three generations together at a destination wedding in Hawaii is definitely a memory to be captured.
The  classic catholic wedding ceremony performed by a close family friend, the lovely celebration at the Kapalua Plantation Golf Course, the traditional 1000 origami cranes and sake ceremony and watching their family boogie down to salsa music made this an event to remember.

Congratulations dear Akane and Ben! We had so much fun with you! Our cameras truly enjoyed your easygoing personalities, your beautiful smiles and your pure love!
