Budget Friendly Hawaiian Wedding on Kona

Hope you all are having a great week! Today we are going to share the DIY wedding of Mimi and Jon. Mimi is from the big island of Hawaii and wanted to incorporate that into their day without it being a cliche tropical wedding. Together with their friends and family they put together a budget friendly Hawaiian wedding that really takes our breath away, with fabulous photography by Brookelyn Photography.
