Destination weddings are always spectacular. Surrounding yourself with a beautiful new scenery exemplifies the beautiful new adventure you’re about to embark upon. For Stephanie and Nick, Sunset Ranch in Haleiwa, Hawaii marked the spot for their effortlessly chic wedding. Deep orange bridesmaid gowns, tan and green groomsmen colors, and a wonderful touch of pink and yellow florals on the tables perfected the tropical feel at this island wedding. The highly skilled Mary Claire Photography captured the beautiful light surrounding the couple on their special day!
Stephanie and Nick
Sunset Ranch, Haleiwa, Hawaii
We wanted the focus to be on the natural beauty surrounding us in Hawaii, so we kept the wedding decor simple and minimal. We stuck very loosely to a color theme drawing from a palette found naturally in that environment, green, white, and orange. We knew the protea flower evocative of vintage Hawaii would be the perfect compliment to the space.
Our favorite moment was the first dance, slowly spinning around on the dance floor surrounded by all our family and friends. It was an incredibly emotional moment catching glimpses of our loved ones with each turn. What a lasting memory!
