At our first consultation back in April 2015, Lopaka and Mikiala shared a story with me on how Lopaka proposed to her. Although I was not there to record this amazing story, I felt it was worth sharing with everyone.
One day, Lopaka took Mikiala on a helicopter ride but it wasn't just any helicopter ride, it was a ride that would change their lives forever. Lopaka had this day well-planned. He had invited only their closest family member and friends to meet at Magic Island, Ala Moana Beach Park on the island of Oahu. They had a task to finish before the helicopter arrived.
Mikiala was so excited about the helicopter ride that she thought nothing of a surprise engagement proposal. On their approach to Magic Island, Lopaka asked Mikiala to look out the window at the open grassy area. She was shocked to see what was written before her. Mikiala's favorite color is pink. Strewn over the large grassy area at Magic Island and spelled in pink poster paper were the words, "Miki, will you marry me?" Of course she had said yes and after landing, the proposal did not end there. Mikiala has two young daughters from a previous marriage and Lopaka asked them for their mothers hand in marriage. They gladly accepted!
Fast-forward to the day of their awesome Hawaii wedding on December 31, 2015. The photographs will tell their amazing story to the start of their new journey.
