Kristen + Jason brought the aloha spirit to their Hawaiian themed wedding! We made sure to capture all their little details in their Hyatt Lodge wedding photos! They also did a wonderful job honoring their Chinese and Japanese heritage throughout the day!

Kristen has been following my work for a long time…ever since the beginning of Nakai Photography…and it was a privilege to capture her special day!

As their Hyatt Lodge wedding photographer, I was thankful they decided to have a first look so we could have more time for their pictures around the Hyatt Lodge!

The Oak Brook McDonald’s campus has gorgeous modern lines as well as these strong curves as you can see in this stair case and in the outdoor bridges. Those strong architectural elements also help with making beautiful Oak Brook Hyatt Lodge wedding photos!

The architect for the McDonald’s campus made sure to incorporate lots of nature and large windows for all to enjoy the beautiful greenery! Photographer’s insight: Love how trees almost seem like they are leaning in towards the bride and groom!

Hyatt Lodge wedding photographer tip: Use the curved walkway to create these strong visual guiding lines! Also love the different textures…the smooth man-made concrete balanced with the organic leaves and flowing water below!

Party favors were Honolulu Cookies! The truth must come out…not only do Kristen + Jason love Hawaii, I love it too! I think I love it as much as they do! Honolulu Cookie just perfectly brings you those Hawaiian vibes!

They are going to eat that head of lettuce in Kristen’s hands…hence the expression on her face!

One of the best parts of having your wedding at the Hyatt Lodge…late night McDonalds cheeseburgers and milkshakes!

One last photo of their rings. Photographer Insight: Took three elements from their Hawaiian themed wedding  for this picture. The orchids, the handcrafted board + the palm leaves!
