Kristin and Justin | Enchanted Elopement | Kauai

the valley was socked in with fog but we weren’t in a hurry, we hiked down the ridge until we got to the spot kristin and justin had picked out earlier that week while exploring and they started to get ready. the fog almost looked sureal, and these two were such an incredible reminder to not stress over the things we can’t control. all the cared about was that they were about to say their vows to one another and exchange rings to seal their commitment to one another, fog or no fog. she began to walk down the cliff-line towards justin for their first look, and as soon as she started walking, the sun rays were shining through the trees and it seemed as if the fog was lifting. he turned around to see her, and just like that the fog blew out out of the valley leaving the most magical backdrop. they stayed there with eachother for a while, and when they were ready they took eachothers hand and walked even further out onto the ledge. they got out their journal, and read the sweetest vows to one another. and as soon as they were finished their first dance? the fog rolled right back in. everything about this afternoon was absolutely meant-to-be.

kauai adventure elopement wedding on the na pali coast we ended the afternoon on a white sand beach, all to ourselves watching another beautiful kauai sunset. waves crashed in and out as they playfully ran back and forth on the beach trying not to get too wet. their feet were sandy, kristins dress was soaked by the end of it and they were all smiles. so grateful for these two and their warm, easy-going and playful personalities. congratulations kristin and justin, what a magical day!!

The lady on the plane | Little moments series | Post 2

The Little Moments Series | Post 2 (to read Post 1, click here)

“That’s what I miss most” she said in her cute old lady Scottish accent. Both Pete and I had been captivated by her travel stories since we sat down next to her on the plane. She told us how her late husband David had passed away 2 years ago, and that they got to see a lot of the world together and they had been to New Zealand 7 times before he passed. This was her 2nd trip there without him and I thought she was brave for going so far alone at her age. It must remind her of their adventures together I thought to myself. “It’s just so lovely to have someone to share things with, it’s such a gift, never take it for granted” she would say. My heart broke for her as I imagined her exploring the islands by herself and I felt myself gripping peters hand just a little tighter. We are so lucky to have each other and to live the life we live I thought. How the universe places people and experiences in our life at the perfect moments to encourage us to be grateful. There I was, exhausted and quite honestly tired of traveling and just longing to be home, and there she was, striving for exactly what I had 45 years later in life, alone, wishing her life partner could be with her so they could finish exploring the world together. “Thank you for being so kind and talking with me, I’m quite afraid of flying and often wish to find someone to help me take my mind off of it” she said as the plane landed again. This little insignificant encounter with a complete stranger left me inspired and filled with gratitude for what I have, I’ll always be grateful to little Granny Gene for that reminder❤
