A love for the islands and the desire for an intimate celebration with their closest family and friends led Heather and Stuart to return to the groom's hometown for this gorgeous destination Hawaii wedding.
The Loulu Palm Estate on the North Shore of O'ahu set the stage for this simple yet stunning destination wedding.
The couple exchanged vows before family and friends steps from the beach overlooking the the North Shore's stunning coastline.
Danny Carvalho, an acoustic guitarist, began the ceremony with the Hawaiian Wedding Song that led into Somewhere Over the Rainbow as the bride approached the aisle.
Ua noho au a kupa, a Hawaiian song that speaks of love and companionship, was perfectly fitting for the recessional.
The Event Design
Floral designer, Michelle Maeda of Flowergirls Hawaii designed zen style floral arrangements and touches with the words "simple" and "stunning" in mind to match the couple's green and white color palette.
