Now that temperatures have dropped, we can’t help but dream of a beach vacation on the sunny island of Oahu. Luckily we have weddings like this one to hold us over. Elise and Giovanni’s blush and beige Four Seasons Resort O’ahu at Ko’olina wedding was the perfect combination of tropical and romantic.
With the help of Eventures Hawaii, the couple turned the seaside ceremony space into an elegant reception using pink linens, rose centerpieces put together by Yvonne Design, gold cutlery, and sparkling chandeliers.

There’s nothing quite as magical as a tropical wedding under the Hawaiian sun while overlooking the Pacific’s translucent teal waters. Denice and Bryan’s island-chic garden wedding at Kualoa Ranch was a beach lover’s dream come true. With the help of Finishing Touch Hawaii, the couple’s day had the perfect touches of decor and color that didn’t distract from the island’s natural beauty. We love how Denice’s Allison Webb floral jacquard ballgown matches the white and green florals from Yvonne Design. Not to mention her second mermaid silhouette gown from Martina Liana made her look as if she had just jumped right out of the sea and into the photos.
With rentals from Pacific Party Rentals and Aloha Artisans, the pair transformed the outdoor ceremony space into a beautifully simple reception space. It was complete with airy linens, flowers galore, twinkle lights, and a personalized marquee sign from Designed with Aloha. Bryan’s niece, Allison Slater–who’s a well-established wedding photographer in Phoenix–beautifully captured every special detail and candid moment. If you’ve dreamed of a tropical affair, we can’t wait for you to see these breathtaking images!

Why Kualoa Ranch
Hawai’i was always my dream–without a doubt. So I felt so blessed to be able to actually plan for it. I love all the islands but once I came across Kualoa on Instagram, I was sold. The incredible ocean view with the ‘Chinaman’s Hat’ island–Mokoli’i–coupled with the steep Jurassic-looking mountains all in one location, was perfect for me.
Personalizing Their Ceremony with a Unity Candle Lighting
We had a lighting of the unity candle ceremony. Each child of ours read individual scripture readings that our officiant chose, and then we all met around a table set next to our ceremony riser to light the unity candle all at once. Bryan’s nephew, Matthew Slater, was also our officiant. He was exceptional, and it made our ceremony that much more personal.
The Neutral Color Palette
Our colors were neutrals that were complementary to the destination. I wanted everyone to wear colors within our ‘island chic’ palette for pictures as we were a small group. We had both fathers wear the same thing–head to toe–and the mothers wore the same color dresses. Bryan wore the only dark suit.
An Unforgettable Rain Shower
One unforgettable memory was witnessing everyone I love dancing until the very end of the night–even after a typical short-lived rain shower later in the evening. The locals told us that this type of short, light, misty rain is a blessing on your wedding day.
Congratulations again to Denice and Bryan on their special day at Kualoa Ranch! Big thank you to Allison Slater Photography for sharing the gorgeous photos with Junebug. To see more tropical wedding goodness, check out Kerina and Ivan’s Elegant Hawaii Wedding at Four Seasons Resort Oahu!
