Ava and Dawson were born and raised in Hawaii. Once they’ve been dating for a while, the conversation about their future came up. The next thing they knew, they were planning their special day! Since this island is their home, they knew a venue wedding in Oahu would be the perfect way to tie the knot! Keep scrolling to experience this intimate event for yourself.

First to arrive was Dawson and the forty-nine wedding guests. While our groom took his place at the front, Ava rode the second boat to the venue. Then, it was time for the ceremony to begin! Our bride walked down the aisle with her daughter by her side. As she made her way to her groom, you could see him shedding tears of joy!

The Romantic Venue Wedding in Maui

Ava and Dawson wanted their wedding to be beautiful, tranquil, and fun — their ceremony was perfect for them! Kualoa Secret Island is a private venue, so this event was intimate. Next, Henry Makua enhanced the peaceful ambiance by effortlessly playing his ukulele!

Kualoa Secret Island never fails to make you feel like you’re in a tropical fairytale! The lush palm trees, long sandy shore, and dramatic mountains create a breathtaking landscape for this Oahu venue wedding. Above all, the sunset at this location was gorgeous — decorating the sky are silky clouds and pastel hues.

Our charming couple met while Dawson was on his trash route in Waikiki. Ava says his cute smile and friendly personality made her want to give him her phone number. From there, the rest is history!
