Kualoa Secret Island created a breathtaking stage for the event. When you’re on the boat heading to this private spot, you’ll feel as if you’re entering a fairytale land! The staggering mountains, cerulean water, and ivory sand decorate the background beautifully. We like how the sunset’s rays make the silky clouds glow dreamily! Above all, this location had enough space for all eighteen guests.

The Enchanting Wedding in Oahu

The first people to arrive on the island were AJ and the eighteen guests. When the ceremony began, our gorgeous bride gracefully walked down the aisle with her father by her side! Claire looked regal in her timeless wedding gown, while AJ looked sophisticated in his navy suit! We love how our groom tied in one of the wedding colors with the blush tie.

We adore the burgundy, blush, and white color scheme our delightful couple chose! In our bride’s custom bouquet by Sweet Blossom Hawaii, you can see how every hue blends exquisitely! The deep tones contrast with the soft light shades effortlessly. All the leaves are a soft green color; they look pleasant with the burgundy berries.

Our Couple’s Story

Claire and AJ first met at Colorado State University, when mutual friends introduced them to one other. After a few years together, our cute couple got engaged in 2019 following a romantic dinner. AJ wrote Claire a heartfelt note and popped the question at home! During their relationship, they’ve had to spend several years long-distance. Now, they are thankful they don’t have to be apart again!

This getaway was our adventurous couple’s first time in Hawaii! COVID derailed many of their travel plans, and they have always wanted to visit the islands. Having a wedding in Oahu was perfect because they got to enjoy paradise and have a magical ceremony!
