Getting married is a sacred occasion. Whether your loved ones are in attendance or you elope, it should always be magical. For Duan and Ross, their Oahu destination wedding was perfect because it was just the two of them! Keep scrolling to see this gorgeous event for yourself.
Duan and Ross wanted an intimate, fun, and romantic wedding. And Kualoa Regional Beach was the perfect spot for this occasion. The weather was flawless, with the vibrant morning sun lighting up the sky and a few clouds scattered around! We love how the luminous glow from the sun creates such a warm ambiance in every portrait captured by Karma Hill Photography. Our beautiful couple already looks like they’re in their own world, but the romantic lighting enhances it!
Our lovely couple had an Oahu destination wedding because they wanted to surprise their friends and family. Instead of having a grand wedding, the idea of having a small private ceremony enticed them. Duan and Ross eloped with no one but themselves and the breathtaking Hawaiian scenery surrounding them. You can’t get more intimate than this ceremony!
Our bride’s Rustic Hawaiian Bouquet and matching flower crown are so vibrant in every portrait. We love how Duan’s elegant hair and makeup go beautifully with her chic dress. You can never go wrong with an off-the-shoulder gown for a beach wedding. Most importantly, she makes such a breathtaking bride!
Ross and Duan’s story began when they met through a mutual friend while attending the University of California, Riverside. During their academic years, they became good friends and stayed in touch post-graduation. One day, Ross asked Duan on a date to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. From there, their friendship blossomed into something more serious!
Our beautiful couple got engaged while taking a trip to Seattle, Washington. Ross popped the magic question to Duan at the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum! Currently, they have been together for eight delightful years. They’re excited to start this new chapter in their lives: married life! Above all, we’re happy they started this next phase in their relationship with an Oahu destination wedding!
Congratulations, Duan and Ross! Mahalo Nui Loa for letting us be part of such a heartwarming day. We wish you a future full of new travels, fascinating cultures, and delicious foods!
