Lauren and Jarratt were married at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel in Kohala Coast, Hawaii on May 31. “We both loved the history, architecture and simple beauty of it,” Lauren said. “We knew it would be a place we would always return to and the perfect place to get married!” The bride wore a strapless sheath wedding gown with a beaded bodice, accessorized with her hair down in loose curls, while the groom kept it casual with a white button-up shirt and khaki pants, accessorized with a lei. Bridesmaids wore long ruffled fuchsia dresses and carried bouquets of peonies, roses, lilies, and succulents. Only 25 guests were in attendance for the intimate ceremony with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean as the backdrop. The newlyweds’ favorite moment? “When we were pronounced husband and wife and had our first kiss,” she said. Of course, it wasn’t about the details of the day! “Don’t worry about the details on your wedding day,” Lauren said. “Enjoy all the special moments and know you will be marrying the person you love with all of your friends and family around you.” A long banquet table was decorated with a turquoise runner, mercury glass centerpieces, and tall pillar candles atop candelabras. Even crystal chandeliers hung high above from the trees! There were two dinner entree options: fish and beef filet. Luckily, room was spared when it came time for dessert. A three-tiered buttercream-frosted cake with cascading blooms looked super irresistible. And that’s not all — a special performance was made from a fire dancer.

Kelly and Chris were married at Sugarman Estate in Wailea-Makena, Hawaii on October 11. The bride wore a sweetheart a-line wedding gown with a lace bodice and ruffled tulle skirt, accessorized with shoulder-length veil in her half-up/half-down ‘do, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with a skull-themed bow tie. The maid of honor wore a short navy blue chiffon dress and carried a bouquet of roses, berries, dusty millers, and ferns. The ceremony took place at sunset with the Pacific Ocean as the backdrop stretching from the shores of Honua Kai Lani to the islands of Kahoolawe, Molokini, and beyond. The couple decided to write their own vows. “There are no words I could ever relay about how I feel about you . . . I could only think of a movie — Jerry McGuire — you literally complete me, you make me want to be a better man, you make me a better man, and even though it’s taken 17 long years, it was worth the wait,” Chris said. Fun fact: They dated in high school and went to Arizona State University together! That’s why “I always knew you were the one,” Kelly said. After wiping away the tears and sealing their commitment with a kiss, it was official! The reception followed underneath a framed tent decorated with hanging lanterns, overflowing centerpieces atop moss-covered wooden boxes, and “mahalo” (thank you) notes at each place setting.

Kristina and Will were married at the White Orchid Beach House in Wailea-Makena, Hawaii on October 14 — all the way from Australia. The bride wore a sweetheart ruched a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a headband in her loose curls, while the groom wore a gray vest and pants, accessorized with argyle socks. Bridesmaids looked oh-so lovely in navy blue chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of all-white roses, orchids, and calla lilies. As intimate as the ceremony was overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the reception was even more so lit with a crystal chandelier, paper lanterns, and candles. Not to mention the palm trees! Each place setting featured a “thank you” tin for guests to take home with them. Can you guess what was inside? Well, it’s a secret.

Q & A with the Bride & Groom: 

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know that it was the one? 

The big, beautiful exotic trees and the ceremony area right next to palm trees and the ocean.  It was such a perfect setting to walk down the aisle.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Our musicians – Shea Derrick and Full Flavor worked with us on which kind of music we wanted and played an eclectic selection of our choices and theirs, live!  They let us pick songs that they would learn and sing, and our guests were amazed since the covers sounded so awesome.  It was a mix between Shea singing, a guitarist, and a DJ, and they were fabulous!  

2. The food – Aloha Events catered and bartended.  We made a custom around the world menu with dishes from different countries we’ve traveled to.  The food was superb, and the staff was great!  

3. The cake – Maui Wedding Cakes designed a custom cake that looked like a mountain.  We ordered rock climbing figurines from MyWeddingDolls.com that were designed to look like us, which were placed on the cake as rock climbers.  Figurines of our two dogs were on top of the cake.  The designer used string for the climbing rope.  We gave her an extremely unique cake request, and she nailed it.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Bride – Walking down the aisle and seeing my soon-to-be husband waiting for me.  The look on his face filled my heart with so much joy and love, and I knew I was feeling the same thing he was – overwhelming happiness to spend the rest of our lives together.

Groom – We secretly took dance lessons once a week for like 5 months.  We wanted a dance with big lifts and choreography that would blow our guests away.  We couldn’t decide between her choice, Pearl Jam’s “Love Reign O’er Me” and my choice, O.A.R.’s “Hey Girl,” so we decided to do 2 dances.  Our first one was for our first dance “Love Reign O’er Me” was formal and dramatic.  Much later in the night, we surprised everyone with another dance.  ”Hey Girl” was swing and playful, and I lifted Samara over my head a few times.  So much fun.  We undertook a huge challenge, but it was my favorite memory.  No one expected a dance like that, let alone two dances!

Joyful Orange Summer Ranch Wedding in Hawaii

Tara & Kale

Oahu, Hawaii

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride & Groom:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one? 

The spectacular view.

2. Which four details from your wedding were your favorites? 

1. The place settings with the personalized favors and single orchid  we actually had people taking more than one favor.

2. The giant lawn games for the reception — it was very relaxed atmosphere, and we were able to spend a little time with everyone.

3. Flower mob — we had 9 kids throwing flowers instead of 1 or 2. 

4. Shaved ice instead of wedding cake – since most of our guests were not from Hawaii, it was a treat that you cannot get every day. Loved the fresh, tropical flavors!

4. Give us the one moment in your wedding you can’t stop thinking about. 

The first look, the moment that we first saw each other on the day. Tara was so beautiful, and exiting the ceremony after our kiss. We were so excited, we starting skipping and jumping.
