This Destination Wedding was a gathering of friends + family who traveled, mainly from California, to celebrate in Hawaiian style complete with leis, flowers in hair, a ukulele player for light island tunes, a proper conch (shell) blowing,  island eats + cookies from the aloha cookie company as takeaway gifts. there handwritten vows were one of the most memorable events of the day along with the cutout of Charlie, the grooms dog, waiting ‘patiently’ by the best man.

for the bride and groom it was important for their guests to enjoy the island and culture as much as they do during their wedding weekend. accomplished, high-five it + check out this gorgeous day:
