Samantha and Montana’s wedding this past summer at Loulu Palm on the island of Oahu was one of the most fun and beautiful weddings that I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. If the name Loulu Palm sounds familiar it’s probably because I featured them on my top 5 wedding venues on Oahu blog! There’s a reason this venue is one of my favorites, and I’m so glad Samantha and Montana chose it for their wedding day.
Getting Ready and a First Look
To start off their wedding day both Samantha and Montana spent some time getting ready separately with their wedding parties. Samantha and her friends spent their morning together sipping mimosas and champagne all while having the best time getting ready for the day. One of my favorite parts of their day was all of the intentional details that went into it. Samantha included some of her Grams pearls on the back of her dress which was such a special and intimate detail to their day.
Montana similarly was getting ready with his friends and helping their son Brody get ready for the day as well which was such a sweet moment. These two are adorable together and Brody was so supportive and excited all throughout his fathers’ wedding. Once both Samantha and Montana were ready we met outside for a first look and Montana’s reaction to seeing Samantha for the first time was priceless! Brody then also joined in on the first look, and the three of them had such a special moment together on their wedding day. We had a bit of time for some portraits before it was time for their wedding ceremony at Loulu Palm.
Beachside Wedding Ceremony at Loulu Palm
The beachside ceremony space is something that just can’t be beat in terms of backdrops for your wedding ceremony. With palm trees lining the grass clearing that overlooks the ocean there is just so much natural beauty in this space. With this in mind Samantha and Montana kept their decorations for their ceremony space simple and tasteful, with flower petals along the aisle and two floral displays on either side of them for their reception. The weather was absolutely perfect for their ceremony and everyone was SO excited when it came time for Samantha and Montana to say I do. As the ceremony ended and they began walking down the aisle the two were showered by more white flower petals making for the perfect exit.
Wedding Reception at Loulu Palm
Samantha and Montana put a ton of care into selecting the vendors for their wedding day and in doing so created a ceremony and wedding day they’ll always be able to look back on and cherish. Between the delicious food, wonderful speeches, fantastic music, and the incredible beauty of Loulu Palm this wedding reception had it all! The reception took place underneath Loulu Palm’s large outdoor tent which we were able to run some string lights through for some added magic to the evening. After Samantha and Montana’s first dance, it was time for some food and speeches before the dance floor opened up for their guests to dance and laugh the night away together.
I’m so incredibly happy to have been a part of the team behind Samantha and Montana’s wedding at Loulu Palm. These two were able to put together a wedding day that was perfect for them and something they’ll love to look back and reminisce on for the rest of their lives.
