Tropical Chic Island Elopement at Kualoa Ranch

May 10, 2017 | Junebug Weddings

When Yui and Reynold were planning their destination wedding, they wanted a few things: an intimate elopement, a tropical Hawaii location, and totally romantic vibes. With the help of Modern Elopement, the couple ended up having the elopement of their dreams at Kualoa Ranch! After Yui and Reynold’s stunning waterfront ceremony surrounded by their favorite people dressed in all white, Christie Pham Photography captured gorgeous shots of the couple exploring Oahu’s green mountains and dramatic ocean scenes.

The Couple:

Yui and Reynold

The Wedding:

Kualoa Ranch, Oahu, Hawaii

We wanted an intimate ceremony with gorgeous flowers in a beautiful location. The backdrop was amazing and we got so many stunning photos!

The most memorable part of the day was having our closest family there for a beautiful wedding ceremony. We don’t get to see our family often and having them all together in one place for such a special occasion was so wonderful and meant the world to us.

We chose to elope and it was the best decision. We did not want the fuss of a large wedding, but still wanted a really beautiful ceremony with our closest family present. We had 25 guests and it made the ceremony so much more intimate and meaningful. Hawaii was the perfect location because it is in the middle of all of our guests and was an easy place for everyone to travel to.

Our wedding colors were white. All of our guests wore white and we had white flowers. We wanted something romantic and elegant and the white really stood out against the lush green of the venue.

I designed and created my own wedding dress and earrings so it was exactly what I wanted. I design clothes so it only made sense that I designed my own wedding dress.

Modern Elopement had a beautiful collection that fit exactly what I wanted. They had beautiful white flower arrangements for my bouquet and the ceremony.
