A Hawaiian Wedding Dream – Oahu Venue Wedding

For a bit of backstory, our sweet couple lives together in Charleston, South Carolina – where the coast and ocean are a part of their lifestyle. As such, being surrounded by nature has become an integral part of who they are – so it made perfect sense for them to exchange their vows in Hawaii! From soaking up the sunsets to exchanging their vows to the sound of the waves – this is exactly what Gabriel and Christina had always envisioned when thinking about getting married. Kualoa Ranch at Secret Island provided the idyllic and private backdrop our charming pair hoped for…it was simply perfect for a nature-loving couple. And even though it was a relatively quick decision to get married in Hawaii in February, their dreamy celebration will undoubtedly be cherished forever!

Christina looked exquisite in her sleek gown and haku flower crown, while Gabriel was equally handsome in his black tux. Everything felt so serene as we photographed their newlywed portraits right by that calm blue water’s edge. Even though they tied the knot on the beach, they still dressed their very best! After all, it is an extraordinary life milestone! Don’t they make such a beautiful couple?

We love this location for an Oahu venue wedding because of the privacy and the dramatic and cinematic views of the mountains! This lush scenery makes the most jaw-dropping wedding photos… it’s Hawaii at its finest! And better yet, it’s all for our happy newlyweds to savor and enjoy without the crowds!
