Native Californians with a love for the ocean and a love for the Hawaiian Islands, Mike and Jess couldn't think of a better way to celebrate then a beautiful and exotic destination wedding.
Mike and Jess fell in love with the private estate of Lanikuhonua, on the south western shore of Oahu, for it's peaceful ambiance, stunning ocean and sunset views and swaying palm and coconut trees. Translated to "where heaven meets the earth, " they couldn't imagine a better slice of heaven to tie the knot.
Mike and Jess exchanged vows under swaying palm trees in a Christian ceremony before family and friends.
