This sweet, intimate ceremony popped against the vibrant Kauai backdrop. These lovebirds met in college and began their love story.

Ron had quite a surprised planned for his adventurous sweetheart when they were on a white water rafting tour. The couple got off the boat at a popular hike which began to be just a little bit too long for Lauren. His persistence paid off! After pushing her a little farther to the top, he got down on one knee and the rest is history!

Family and friends weren’t surprised when the newly engaged couple announced a destination wedding — they had been talking about it for years! They chose an elopement to have the stress-free ceremony that they dreamed of and hosted a backyard party with all of their extended family and friends when they got home ( talk about the best of both worlds! ).

The couple says that their wedding ceremony was the highlight of their lives especially when they got to read their tender, hand-written vows to each other as they joined as husband and wife.

Lauren’s advises couples planning their wedding, “Focus on what your priorities are for your wedding and marriage. If you stay focused on that, then everything else will fall into place. Not everyone needs or wants the traditional Pinterest wedding! Also, if you're going to Hawaii - book Modern Elopement. You're welcome.”
