These sweethearts have built a beautifully strong relationship on a foundation of friendship. They met in the 5th grade and were friends throughout elementary, middle, and high school. After high school, their paths led them in different directions for a while, but they reconnected and went on their first date in November 2013.
It didn't take long for Jeremy to realize that the friend he'd had for so long was also the love of his life. So he started planning. He whisked Allison away to Las Vegas to celebrate her 30th birthday, but not before receiving her dad's permission to ask for her hand in marriage. As they adventured the city, checking one bucket-list item off after the next, Allison had no idea that he had much more in store of their trip. It was in front of the Bellagio fountain, under the gorgeous Las Vegas sun, that Jeremy got down on one knee and asked Allison to spend the rest of her life with him. She was overtaken with excitement and as she screamed, "YES!!!" the crowds of strangers that surrounded them cheered and took pictures. It was a moment that neither of them will ever forget. A little less than a year later, they were saying their vows on a gorgeous white sand beach on the island of Oahu.
As Allison made her way down the path to the beach, Jeremy stood facing the water. He turned around as she got closer to him and was immediately flooded with emotion. His eyes welled up, and his smile was so genuinely filled with joy, I couldn't help but cry tears of happiness for them both. What a beautiful moment!
The ceremony was perfect. With just a handful of family members in attendance and the tranquil sound of the waves gently crashing just feet away from them, Jeremy and Allison were able to truly focus on taking in every perfect second as they officially became husband and wife. Afterwards, they were showered with rose petals and celebrated with their family under the beautiful Hawaii sun. The celebration continued throughout the day and ended with a picturesque sunset cruise, complete with a jaw-dropping fireworks show.
Jeremy and Allison, thank you for allowing me to share in this incredible journey with you. It was such an honor to be able to witness your love for each other and to document your absolutely perfect wedding day.
