A union of not only two amazing individuals, but of two very different cultures from two distant countries. Robert McDaniel and Gisele Pitot made their vows under the beautiful sun at the Kawailoa Ranch on the North Shore of Oʻahu. This ranch hosts beautiful scenery and an amazing place to see the sunset - and you could drive by all of this in a blink of an eye if you weren't aware.
I have had the honor to work with both Robert and Gisele at non-profit, Surfing The Nations. I have gotten to know the two of them apart and I have witnessed the two of them grow their relationship together. It is so heartwarming to see two individuals who not only love each other with all of their hearts, but spend their lives serving and loving other people around them.
Their wedding was a clash of hipster cool and classic Surfing The Nations flare. There was so many elements within the decorations that I'm not sure if I even caught it all. My top three favs (which made it to the video) were the photo wall of friends and family, the random African proverbs, and the mason jar chandelier. Everything created the perfect atmosphere for and outdoor wedding celebrating two radical individuals.
Everything was perfect. The love between Gisele and Robert was evident in the many friends and family that gathered to celebrate alongside them. The entire day was amazing, and I know that every time I drive through the North Shore past the ranch, I will be reminded of this amazing wedding.
