|Unlike most couples I've worked with, I met Damon and Ann on the day of their wedding. Being from Arizona, the couple did all their planning with me via email and phone. However, I had a gut feeling from all the communication that this couple would be awesome to work with. And I was right :)|
Ann and Damon are easily one of the most humble and grateful couples that I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Both of them have been through a lot (the absence of parents meant Ann was walked down the aisle by her uncle, and Damon danced with his daughter after the first dance), but in the midst of all this, Ann and Damon carried so much happiness and energy throughout the day that I felt rejuvenated as a photographer documenting their special day.
This wedding (aside from having the Isle Media blue color scheme!) had a wonderful focus on the details. Ann and Damon presented their daughter, Hannah, with a ring during there ceremony (in addition to their own). The couple also had wedding shoe stickers, which added a nice touch to their attire. The ceremony, which was held at the Ihilani Resort, was small and intimate with close family and friends. The reception was incredibly emotional, with heartfelt speeches, that showed how much respect and love everyone had for the couple. Even Hannah, Ann and Damon's young daughter, came up to give a speech, saying how proud she was of her parents taking this final step.
Oh, and this wedding party knew how to have a good time :) From Hannah and Logan's rendition of Michael Jackson's "Bad," to the entire group rocking out to "I Gotta Feeling" by Black Eyed Peas, there were plenty of smiles and dance moves from everyone!
Congratulations Ann and Damon...you guys rock :)
