A double rainbow shines over Mount Tantalus near Honolulu, Hawaii. “My brother is a pilot in the Air Force and was stationed in Hawaii for several years. He met his wife there, and on the year anniversary of meeting her, he planned an elaborate proposal. After my now sister-in-law said yes, her parents, who my brother had flown in from New York, walked up and surprised her and both of our families got to celebrate together,” recounts photographer Maddie McGarvey. “My dad passed away earlier this year, and this memory of pure happiness experienced by my family will always be so special to me.” (Related: amazing images of Hawaii.)
