I don't remember the first time I met Mike. This seems odd to me because he and my husband have known each other a very long time and have been through so much together. They are kind of best friends forever. So, you would think, meeting "the best friend" would have been an event that I would remember.
But I don't.
I can only conclude that Mike made me feel so comfortable at that first meeting that it didn't feel like I was meeting him for the first time. It was like seeing an old friend again.
I distinctly remember the first time I met Eva.
Just kidding. I don't remember that either.
I do, however, remember the first time Mike met Eva... on their wedding day.
This was right before we all left for the Haiku Mill, where their amazing wedding photographer was waiting for them.
I had spent the morning capturing Eva and Mike getting ready for their big day.
Eva had her hair and make-up done in the Halawai Lounge with her beautiful bridesmaids.
I love these girls.
Eva has a twin sister, Joann, who is married. And Eva wore the same wedding shoes Joann wore on her wedding day. So sweet.
Meanwhile, Mike was in another room with his groomsmen, the ring bearer, Alicia, and a little mochi (not pictured).
The last two photographs are from my wedding day... no, wait.
Mike and Eva, words can not express how happy I am for the two of you. Thank you for allowing me to take these photographs of you on your beautiful wedding day.
