Hawaii Destination Wedding at Kualoa Ranch and Waikiki

Ok, I am a little biased, but I love kilts and Scottish culture! I was so excited to work on this Scottish couple’s sweet photos. Not only were they absolutely smitten with each other and so cute, but their wedding details and decor were beautiful too! Don’t leave it to me to convince you, just check out their photos here!

After the bride had her hair and makeup done at Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki, she got dressed in her wedding gown featuring a feather detailed sweetheart neckline pleated bodice and flowing ruffled skirt. Absolutely stunning! The happy groom was dressed in his family’s kilt pattern with a matching vest and necktie.  They headed over to the windward side of Oahu to Kualoa Ranch for their intimate wedding ceremony in the valley.

You might recognize this stunning landscape from movies such as Jurassic Park or the hit TV show Lost! This mountain range makes for a breathtaking backdrop for a wedding ceremony in Hawaii. There wedding venue was set up with gold chivari chairs and white orchids displayed in a lovely pattern on the grass down the aisle.

The entire wedding party with family and friends gathered to eat, drink and enjoy the views from Duke’s restaurant in Waikiki. The bride and groom’s chair was decorated with heart shaped slate signs that read “I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more.” So perfect! To finish off the night the bride and groom cut into their unique Jurassic Park themed wedding cake featuring two little dinosaurs on top of a flowing volcano! To wash it down, the couple chomped into their Lost themed Dharma Initiative brand can shaped cakes.  All of these cute details came together so seamlessly for a truly Hawaii themed destination wedding for this pair from Scotland.

This sweet couple had a beautiful Hawaii destination wedding at one of Kualoa Ranch‘s wedding venues, Moli’i Gardens.  The ceremony at Secret Island and the wedding reception at Moli’i Gardens were both decorated with real Hawaiian pineapples as aisle accents and centerpieces. This was the perfect touch for the green and brown themed wedding.
