Romantic and Fun Hawaii Wedding

Check out this Hawaii Wedding at Paliku Gardens in Kualoa Ranch, on the beautiful island of Oahu.

Justin & Ivana not only had a gorgeous wedding day, they also shared a truly beautiful love story! They had a way of finding each other over & over again in this big ol’ world.  They decided to start their adventure of matrimony with their Hawaii wedding. This beautiful couple ties the knot in the Paliku Gardens of Kualoa Ranch in their perfect Hawaii Wedding

Since I got to be there for the actual wedding day let me just fill you in a little on that!  The wedding was picturesque tucked away in the Paliku Gardens at Kualoa Ranch overlooking the iconic Mokoli’i island also known as Chinaman’s hat.  Kualoa Ranch is one of my favorite venues, not only for weddings, but just for going and hanging out with family and friends!  This place holds such historic significance for O’ahu, but it also holds many views that people might find oddly familiar, even if they have never been to Hawaii.  That’s because it’s the backdrop for many  Hollywood blockbuster films.  If you are still shopping for venues definitely keep this on your short list!The beautiful wedding venue Paliku Gardens of Kualoa Ranch in Oahu

Ivana’s love of pink made the choice easy for wedding colors.  Her theme was exquisite with rose gold, blush, and white.  Her details were absolutely fabulous!  And check out the view outside Paradise Bay Resort where she was getting ready!

I also had such a blast with Justin and his boys as they have the typical Samoan sense of humor keeping me on my toes or belly laughing.

Ivana’s Family and some close friends traveled all the way from Croatia to be part of her big day in Hawaii!!  I was so excited to meet them as Croatia is definitely on my bucket list of must visit spots!!  They were so warm, friendly, and fun!  I can totally see how they travel over oceans to be part of her wedding day! They definitely love big!

Justin’s family was so amazing bringing their beautiful Samoan traditions of dance to welcome Ivana into their family.

The groom’s cousin performs a traditional Samoan dance called Siva at the end of the night as well as being joined by grooms sister and another cousin in the Tau’olunga. It is such a blessing to be able to watch different cultures celebrate with their traditions during these celebrations! Traditional Samoan wedding dances being performed at Hawaii wedding

This Hawaii wedding day was such a dream.  And I think you can see by the images it was full of so much emotion, and so much fun.  Just imagine what the rest of the chapters of their story will look like!
