Lauren and Kyle know all about love, sacrifice and faith. Their love grew while Kyle served in the armed forces in Afghanistan and Lauren stayed in California teaching inner-city youth. The military took Kyle to Guam and Lauren followed leaving friends and family thousands of miles away. An intimate destination wedding in Hawaii was the perfect setting for their celebration. Lauren spent many summers visiting family in Hawaii and Kyle's sister attends college in Honolulu. Surrounded by their closest friends and family, at a beautiful oceanfront estate, Lauren and Kyle committed their lives to each other.
Lauren and Kyle's wedding was especially meaningful to their event designer and coordinator Karine France-Matsumoto of Seasons of Life Events as Lauren is Karine's niece! Working with floral designer Shilhi Seibel of Passion Roots they created a "Sunset Glow" color scheme. Kristin Kato of "A Cake Life" provided a gorgeous and delicious wedding cake and a scrumptious plated meal was served by Kahala Caterers. Beachfront Oasis offered a perfect setting for an oceanfront wedding. Lauren and her bridal party were gorgeous with hair and makeup services by Faith and Beauty. Craig Matsumoto of Streams Hawaii provided live guitar and vocals for their ceremony and cocktail hour as well as DJ'd throughout the night. Rachel Roberston Photography captured all of the special moments. Husband and wife team Ramona and Curt Okimoto of Ambiance Photo + Cinema captured these memories in motion, the sights, sounds and Ambiance of Lauren and Kyle's celebration.
