Aloha Aku No, Aloha Mai No - Kalani and Stephanie Wed at Shilshole Bay Beach Club

Spectacular sunset wedding photo at Shilshole Bay Beach ClubLooking back over the 2012 Wedding Season, there were some absolutely amazing weddings. Here is one of them.

Kalani and Stephanie wed at the Shilshole Bay Beach Club.  Kalani has an Hawaiian heritage and the leis added such an exotic, sea-and-sand, island aromatic feel to the wedding.

Stephanie got ready at the Maxwell Hotel.  Her dress was perfectly her!  I loved the waist detail.

With rings in the ready, the bride and groom were good to go!

 It was a gorgeous day-- filled with aloha spirit.

Kalani and Stephanie's wedding ceremony officiated by Kent Buttars, Seattle Wedding Officiant
The blessing of the couple was Hawaiian:

May your marriage be blessed
  with all things good.

May your joys together, like the stars at night

   be too numerous to count.
May your love for each other
  be more abundant
  than all the grains of sand
  on all the beaches,
  on all the oceans,
in all the world.
May harmony, forgiveness, and trust
  be the foundation upon which your love is built.
May you take each other’s hand and allow the light of hope to guide you.
May you remember that love flows best when it flows freely.
May you always feel cherished and protected, cradled within each other’s hearts.

May you be blessed from this day forward,   with a more abundant love
  than the day before,
  and may others be blessed by you.
May you be blessed.
May your marriage be blessed.


Then, it was time to celebrate!
