One day in Melbourne, Australia, Nino walked into a coffee shop and his life forever changed. The barista at the counter served him the best cup of coffee he'd ever had, and it wasn't at all because the coffee was good. It was because a beautiful girl named Hiromi was serving it to him. He kept returning to that coffee shop, and you and I both know it wasn't because he enjoyed a cup of joe... ;)
Flash forward a couple of years later, and I had the pleasure of second shooting their gorgeous, laid back wedding in Moli'i Gardens of Kualoa Ranch on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Nino and Hiromi chose Hawaii to tie the knot because Nino is from Australia and Hiromi from Japan. Hawaii was the perfect destination wedding location for both of their families.
And DANG do these two know how to throw one heck of a party. They fully embraced the relaxed island feel, and the entire day went by with a breeze. From the florals, to the decor, to the detailed bar drinks, every single vendor brought their A game to make Nino and Hiromi's intimate wedding a magical event they would never forget.
My favourite part of the day? Every single time Nino beamed at his bride and their expecting little one. The love these two have for each other just radiated on their faces, and it made the entire day so beautiful.
Congrats Nino and Hiromi on your wedding and your pregnancy! You're both going to make the sweetest parents! Enjoy their jaw dropping intimate wedding below!
