Kealakekua Bay Wedding Video
November 7, 2022
Becca & Bob
Captain Cook // Kealakekua Bay // Big Island Hawai’i
WHY DO YOU WANT YOUR WEDDING CAPTURED ON VIDEO?
We want to be able to re-live this very special day on our anniversary. We want to be able to share this day with those who could not attend in person. We want to be able to watch again and enjoy any moments we might have missed in the moment. We want these moments to live on beyond us and share with our grandchildren and their children and so on
WHY DID YOU PICK ME?
We loved how each of your clients videos had an individual look. You came highly recommended by our wedding coordinator. We love the cinematic look of your work.
WHAT DO YOU DO? HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR DAYS?..WHAT’S IMPORTANT IN LIFE?
We co-own an event consulting business together. Becca also works full time in health care. We spend most of our days working from home and traveling to event sites (which we always try to do together if at all possible). We love to travel together, cook together, volunteer at our church together, spend time with my daughters, spend time with family, relax in the pool and listen to the ocean waves together. Our faith and our family are most important in our lives. To be intentionally present each day. To leave a legacy to our (my) daughters.
BECCA AND BOB’S CAPTAIN COOK WEDDING.
Becca threw a birthday party for Bob with many of our closest family and friends. She gave a toast and went to light the candles. She stopped and said, “Wait do you want to say anything before we sing to you?” Bob said, “Yes, I do have something to say.” Prior to this he had asked both Molly and Cassidy (my daughters) and Barbara (my mom) permission to ask for my hand in marriage. Then he said, “Yeah, I’m going to hijack this. This is my birthday. There is a gift I want and I am going to get it.” To the surprise of nearly everyone in attendance he dropped to one knee and pulled out a ring. What was supposed to be a California outside party with a taco man turned into a rainy evening with everyone inside and gathered together so everyone was right there. The squeals of the young ladies in attendance set off the cheering and applause of all present. Bec said yes, got a kiss, took a breath and moved to light the candles. Everyone sang to Bob! Three angles of video (from those who knew what was about to happen) were posted and went viral! We FaceTimed siblings not in attendance and our best friends! The whole thing still makes my eyes leak!
THIS VENUE? WHY THIS PLACE ABOVE ANYWHERE ELSE?
Hawaii holds a special place in our lives. This is where we originally wanted to get married but due to the poor health of a few family members we decided to stay on the mainland so Bob’s mother and brother could attend. We planned a dreamy wedding for June of 2020. Enter “that darn virus” our wedding was postponed, and rescheduled. Unfortunately we lost Bob’s Mom and brother in the last year and a half. Bob said, “Let’s go back to Hawaii and get married there.” This is the third time we have changed our wedding date. “Third times a charm!” My parents were going to retire in Hawaii, we scattered my fathers ashes in Hawaii, we celebrated my Mom’s 70th birthday in Hawaii (with over 20 family members at this same location). We love the island and the ocean. We love being next to the water, where the waves sing us to sleep. Bob said, “It’s fucking Hawaii.” It’s romantic and we love it there. NOTE on the style that fits our vision. Artistic yes, NOT moody.
