This Kualoa Ranch wedding was one of the first weddings I took on after moving to Hawaii and it was an absolute dream. I started with the girls getting ready at the beautiful Royal Hawaiian Hotel which is one of my favorite hotels in Waikiki. If you’ve been to Hawaii before, it’s the super iconic pink hotel right on the beach. Melissa and her girls were so much fun and her bridesmaids really made the getting ready process exciting. They had the best energy and were screaming over Melissa when she got ready and it was so sweet!
After we got Melissa ready and did some bridesmaids photos outside on the lawn, we made the trek to Kualoa Ranch. This is also a super iconic location on Oahu because it’s where they filmed a ton of movies, like Jurassic Park, Jumanji, 50 First Dates, etc. The mountains there will blow your mind. Just wait until you see their portraits! I will never forgot my very first time seeing them. I truly couldn’t believe the view was real. Hawaii really is the most epic place to get married!
It was an absolute JOY capturing this sweet day. Melissa and Michael were the most chill and down to earth couple and I’ve been so excited to share these images on the blog since their big day last month! I hope you guys enjoy!
