Choosing the right professionals to carry out your wedding is the difference between you having a stress-free and a stressful wedding day. Renée and Nick totally nailed it with their picks, choosing a few of Hawaii’s most talented vendors to take care of the small stuff so they could enjoy their destination elopement. Modern Elopement made the day at Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens breezy and beautiful, while June Photography captured all of the island elegance.

Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens, Kilauea, Hawaii
We wanted it to be a casual, but sophisticated style that had a contemporary, breezy twist – one that allowed the beauty and colour of Kauai to sing. We asked our guests to dress as ‘Island Elegant.’
When it comes to a destination wedding we would most definitely recommend engaging with a wedding event planner who can offer local expertise and knowledge of the country that you might otherwise not find out about yourself. Not only will this remove the stress of organising the overseas details yourself, but it will make it easier to just turn up at your destination and start enjoying it immediately. We would also recommend spending time researching the right vendors and reviewing blogs before making a final choice.
Destination weddings are all about balancing out knowledge of your venues and location whilst still leaving room for a sense of discovery. It’s ok to allow for an element of surprise on the big day. That’s what makes the destination even more special and memorable.
