Going To The Chapel – Shelby & Jeff’s Oahu Venue Wedding

March 10, 2023


When these two lovebirds were planning their wedding, what mattered most was something simple and stress-free. So naturally, Hawaii came to mind thanks to its relaxed, easygoing lifestyle, and Shelby and Jeff just love Oahu! So after stumbling across our company, an Oahu venue wedding felt just right! The couple didn’t want a big fuss; they simply wanted to celebrate their love with their closest family members in a small, intimate setting. Keep scrolling to see more of their beautiful ceremony!

For The Rest Of Our Lives

For a bit of backstory on our lovely couple, Shelby is a therapist for autistic kids, while Jeff works in construction. They don’t have kids yet, but they are looking forward to starting a family in the near future! And what better way to start than with a beautiful wedding ceremony in the heart of Waikiki at the Chapel at Waikiki Lea!

The couple exchanged vows in the chapel under the majestic arches, creating a dramatic backdrop for their wedding photos. It was an intimate and family-orientated celebration, exactly what they had hoped for! The candles and lanterns added a romantic touch to the ceremony…

Afterward, we ventured out to the gardens and the serene waterfall for their romantic newlywed portraits. The peaceful waterfall and lush foliage created a magical setting for our new Mr. & Mrs. Welling! In addition, the architectural details around the property added another layer of romance and privacy to their first moments as husband and wife…

As you can see, we just love this venue because it offers both a private tropical setting and the option of a more traditional chapel ceremony. So it’s no wonder Shelby and Jeff chose it for their Oahu venue wedding – it’s the best of both worlds!
