Tracy and Elliott’s wedding was breathtaking. Firstly, these two are awesome. They recently moved across the country from New York to Los Angeles and are opening a bar in Oakland. They have a ton going on and yet pulled together this gorgeous elopement at Ironwoods in Kapalua.
When I was first talking to Tracy about the wedding, she emailed me the story of when they met and also about their dog. Oh. Em. Gee. The cutest story EVER. Last year they were vacationing on a Caribbean cruise and while in Turks and Caicos they were riding bikes on the island of Grand Turk when a small stray puppy started following them…and didn’t stop for the entire day! She ran behind them for almost 4 hours! She was so cute, never aggressive or barking. They just fell in love with her and cried when they left her to get back on the boat (she even tried to board the boat!). In the days after they got back to the US, they contacted an American bar owner on the island and asked if he knew anyone who could help find a little white stray dog and after a month or two she safely arrived on Delta airlines in New York City. I knew I was in for meeting some pretty special people!!
Their wedding ceremony with just us and officiant Ernest Pua’a was incredibly lovely. The waves pounded the rocks behind them and the air was filled with salt spray. As the sun started to set and hit a certain angle, it cast an incredible blush light over everything. The color of the light literally changed in front of my eyes casting the most lovely light over these two.
Congratulations Tracy and Elliott! I was so honored to be there with you to capture your wedding. Thank you for climbing all over the cliffs with me! XO
