Dawn and Mike enjoy their amazing kiddos, Samantha and Jackson, and love time at the beach, watching the waves and spotting sea life. After moving from California to the Big Island in 2015, they quickly adapted to the island life and embrace the culture, personality and warmth that Hawaii offers.
Pink Pineapple Weddings is a marriage of two like-minds who love being a part of a couple’s most important day. “PPW” is combination of Dawn and Mike. Drawing inspiration from their love of Hawaii as well as hands-on experience with planning their own destination wedding on Kauai, they had a desire to help couples like them plan elopements and destination weddings.
We have worked with many couples who adore the fact that we are a married-couple-marrying-couples! Dawn always likes to say, “WE CELEBRATE LOVE” and together we celebrate with you.
Mike finds great joy in celebrating one of the happiest days of people’s lives. It is truly an honor for him to be invited to perform a wedding ceremony. While he hopes to bring humor and relaxation to the ceremony, it is a responsibility that is taken seriously. Mike has crafted a modern ceremony focusing on equality, which respectfully combines Hawaiian elements with traditional wedding rituals. He encourages couples to modify the ceremony to make it their own, and allows couples to customize their ceremony to their preference. Mike is also well versed in all aspects of planning; from location selection to florals.
Dawn’s photography sets us apart with her ability to capture couples and their guests at their absolute best. What you can imagine but cannot see is Dawn’s ability to make everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. While being described as sweet, kind, generous, and enthusiastic; Dawn has also been described as “just the right amount of bossy”. With her skill of “directing” versus posing, you know you are going to capture the most genuine and natural moments from your big day. As a planner, Dawn has a knack for bringing your vision to life, and helping you design the day of your dreams. Dawn helps with budgeting, timelines, and connections with local vendors to bring it all to life.
