Laura and Tristan wanted to have a destination wedding but didn’t want to deal with the stress of planning it. When they found us, they knew they could count on our team to make their Oahu venue wedding a reality! Most importantly, they can’t imagine a better way to tie the knot. Their special day was peaceful, spiritual, and full of love — perfect for them! Continue scrolling to experience this ceremony for yourself.
Kualoa Secret Island was the location for this event, so everyone had to travel by boat to get to this venue. Tristan and the thirty-two guests were the first to reach this secluded spot. Upon arrival, our groom took his place at the front by the Officiant, Kahu Dennis Chong-Imamura. Not to mention, he looked sharp in his khaki suit and deep green maile lei!
Following them were Laura and her sisters on the second boat. Once they arrived, it was time for the ceremony to begin! First, the flowers girls walked down the aisle and covered it with petals. Next, our bride made her grand entrance with her father by her side! Laura is a breathtaking bride — her gown is ethereal and pairs flawlessly with her delicate flower crown and styling by Reveal Hair & Makeup!
Our charming couple exchanged rings on Kualoa Secret Island, and we couldn’t have chosen a better venue! This East Oahu spot created an intimate, romantic, and dreamy ambiance for this afternoon affair. Surrounding the ceremony are a variety of picturesque landscapes! You can see the lofty palm trees, foamy cerulean waves, and dramatic mountains in the distance. Above all, we adore how gorgeous the weather is! Although there is medium cloud coverage, the sun’s rays are peeking through them. You can see how this soft glow gives the sky an enchanting look in every portrait Karma Hill Photography captured!
Laura and Tristan’s story began when they met one another on Bumble. After dating for over two years, they got engaged while hiking in Utah. Currently, Laura is a nurse practitioner, while Tristan is the director of an art gallery. This adventurous duo loves being outdoors — an Oahu venue wedding at Kualoa Secret Island was perfect for them! In their free time, you can find them biking, boating, or hanging out with their two dogs.
Congratulations, Laura and Tristan! Thank you for letting us be part of your unforgettable wedding. We wish you a future full of new adventures, travels, and loving moments!
