From the lush Hawaiian Islands to the East Texas pines, this wedding was a beautiful combination of rustic and tropical flare. Bride and groom, Bernadette and Scotty, were a joy to work with and since she was still living in Hawaii, we met and did all the planning over the phone. Bernadette loves to surf and we wanted to incorporate her personality in as many elements as possible. We had a variety of exotic orchids flown in from Hawaii, "message in a bottle" table centerpieces, and I borrowed a friend's surfboard for a few portraits. Who knew cowboy boots and Hawaiian leis went together so well?.. More importantly though, Bernadette became a dear friend of mine and now even assists me in some of my weddings! What a wonderful, sweet bride and friend.
