Katie and Zach

how we met

Okay want to get real? Zach and I met at a hot dog stand at 3am!! It was after a night on the town; and there, with heels in hand, he asked me on a real proper date. The rest is history.

how they asked

Our proposal was a total surprise!! I knew it was definitely going to be happening soon, but I had no idea the day of.Some of our friends on island, @Alohazoephotography, had been scheming up a photo shoot with Zach (where he’d propose). I was under the impression I was the one planning the shoot with them, without having any idea Zach was involved in every detail.We decided on our favorite beach on Big Island – the first beach he ever took me to! Beautiful white sand beach, with crystal clear water… very secluded.Ryan and Corinne (of Alohazoephotography) prompted us to walk down the beach, and as we’re walking, Zach stopped me. I IMMEDIATELY knew, and bursted into tears!I wish I could tell you his speech, but he’d kill me! lol. It was the sweetest words anyone has ever said to me. The whole moment was perfect, and whenever I look at our photos I start crying happy tears all over again.The rest of the night we spent celebrating with family on island! We went to Mi’s for a fancy dinner and wine and cheers’d to a long, happy future together!!!I could not be more excited he’s my guy.

Special Thanks
