When Alaskans Andie and Adam were planning their wedding, they knew they wanted a more tropical climate than their home state offered. Their destination wedding at Sunset Ranch was a sweet rustic take on the typical Hawaiian wedding, complete with leather suspenders and wild horses. Andie wore a classically beautiful Monique Lhuillier gown that complemented the pastel pink, mint, and cream affair designed by Aloha Bridal Connections. Christie Pham Photography and Seeking Films captured every irresistible detail and adorable moment that made Andie and Adam’s wedding a day to remember.
Andie and Adam
Sunset Ranch, Haleiwa, Hawaii
It’s really hard to pick out just one favorite moment from your wedding day.. but if we have to choose it would be our first look. Seeing each other for the first time that day melted away any stress or worries we had. I also really loved our first dance, it started pouring down rain and we did not care one little bit.
We had a long engagement, and I would highly recommend it to other couples. It’s such a wonderful time to share with each other, no need to rush such a special time in your lives.
Our photographer was absolutely amazing. Christie and her husband Matt are professionals. They know exactly what to do, and are able to tell you exactly what to do in order to produce the most amazing wedding photographs you can imagine. She doesn’t just take pictures, she creates art and shows your wedding through a story of photographs. If you want to feel like a star on your wedding day, I recommend Christie Pham.
Being surrounded by beautiful, lush greenery in the hills of the North Shore provided plenty of inspiration for our wedding. We kept the decor minimal, using the natural elements all around us on the ranch, adding bouquets of peonies and garden roses, stringing cafe lights above us and hanging candle lit mason jars from the giant trees. It turned out to be a romantic, intimate and fun evening with all the people we love. Our colors were blush, mint, cream, and peach. We had a soft, airy and natural simplicity to our wedding, with a bit of twine, burlap and DIY touches throughout.
