Picture this: You, your beloved, and a secluded island setting for your wedding day.
Stacy and John meticulously curated every element of their enchanting wedding ceremony on the secluded Secret Island. From the elegant wishbone chairs to the locally sourced coconut welcome drinks, no detail was overlooked, and every moment was seamlessly orchestrated.
Hailing from Orange County, California, the couple, accustomed to stunning landscapes, desired a venue that stood out. Enter Kualoa Ranch, Secret Island—an idyllic location that, despite technically being a peninsula, exudes the exclusive feel of a private island.
The afternoon began for Stacy + John's guests with a private boat ride from the dock to the Secret Island, where they were greeted with locally sourced coconuts and the tunes of island jams. With refreshing drinks in hand, guests lounged on plush seating provided by Aloha Artisans, taking in the surroundings while eagerly anticipating the arrival of the bride and groom.
Upon receiving word that the bride had made her arrival, it was showtime! Officiant Darren Ho offered words of encouragement to John before taking his place at the altar, and the processional music set the tone.
With a graceful fluff of her dress and a final adjustment to her stunning veil, Stacy made her way down the aisle. It's worth noting—there wasn't a dry eye or a held breath in the crowd. The hushed silence spoke volumes about Stacy's radiant presence, and John's composed expression transformed into one of pure awe as he locked eyes with his bride.
Vows were shared, hands were entwined, 'I do's' were declared, and so began their happily ever after.
Post-ceremony, Ariel from Theel Wedding Productions spirited the couple away to capture moments of pure magic, as showcased above, and we bid farewell to the newlyweds with a heartfelt 'a hui ho.
