We first met Rachael and Reginald a few months before their Oahu wedding when we photographed their engagement portraits at the JW Marriot Ihilani Resort and Spa in Ko’olina, Hawaii. We had a great time getting to know this couple and were so happy to be able to photograph their destination wedding.
The bride and groom had a Hawaii garden wedding at Haiku Gardens in Kaneohe in their Tahitian Chapel. Rachael wore a gorgeous satin wedding dress with rouching and emboidery on the bodice and a mermaid train with covered buttons on the back. Red satin high heels added a pop of color to her champagne colored gown. This elegant look was complimented by a deep red rose hair clip in her hair. She looked absolutely radiant. Reginald looked handsome in his tan colored suit and a complimenting dark red necktie.
After the Hawaii garden wedding ceremony at Haiku Gardens the couple and wedding guests headed to Honolulu for their Waikiki Beach wedding reception. The wedding reception was held at Coconut Club at Tiki’s Grill and Bar directly on the Waikiki strip. Tiki’s Grill and Bar is centrally located in Waikiki Beach, which is convenient for guests especially for Hawaii destination weddings. The Coconut Club is located on the 21st floor and has amazing views of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach. This Waikiki wedding reception had a Moroccan theme with beautiful flowers, linens, and decor by the ever so talented Designs By Hemingway. The centerpieces were colorful Moroccan lanterns surrounded by bright roses and orchids. The linens were exotically patterned with magentas, oranges and purples. As the grand centerpiece to this Moroccan themed wedding reception Designs By Hemingway constructed an impressive a towering arrangement of roses, drift wood, and feathers that was a beautiful focal point in the reception.
The five tiered wedding cake was done by Satura Cakes had a different type of mini cake on each of the bottom three tiers. The top two tiers were a round fondant cake with an orange ribbon embellished with colorful flowers. This cute couple finished up their Waikiki wedding reception at the Coconut Club watching the weekly fireworks display that Hilton Hawaiian Village puts on every Friday night. This was a wonderful wedding coordinated by Katy Castillo Weddings. Congrats to Rachael and Reginald!
