You know the old wive’s tale that it’s good luck to rain on your wedding day? Well if that’s true, these two are set for life! Ali and Jacob had been planning their beach elopement for some time to take place at the peak of sunrise – only to be met with a downpour first thing in the morning. You might be thinking oh my gosh, there’s no way anyone would go through with eloping on a day like that, but they embraced it with open arms!
And let’s be honest – rainy days are basically a whole vibe at this point. While some people call it gloomy, I find it peaceful, powerful, and emotional! Watching the clouds with sheets of rain rolling in while saying their vows, wind whipping Ali’s hair and dress like it’s own dance of nature – it was stunning, special, and uniquely beautiful. Their Hawaiian inspired tropical wedding arch, Ali’s haku lei, and Jacob’s maile lei bring the tropical vibes to an all time high. I literally thought I was back on Kauai for a beach elopement for a minute!
More and more with COVID, I am seeing couples decide to privately elope and leave the wedding reception for the friends and family, and I have to say it has really changed my viewpoint on preferring the “normal” wedding day traditions. What I am seeing now are couples being able to have a day that’s truly revolved around them and their love, and capturing emotions that are truly unfiltered, raw, and genuine. It’s really the most amazing thing to watch!
