My favorite island of Hawaii? The Big Island. And while most of our Hawaiian weddings & elopements seem to take place on Maui or Oahu, today’s is a little treat from my favorite place in the middle of the Pacific.
“Organic, surprising & unconventional”, Jean & Bryan let go of their original wedding plans due to Covid-19 and let their breathtaking Hawaiian nuptials naturally occur. One thing you can count on in the islands: unending natural beauty & a relaxed way of things.
Pivoting to an intimate ceremony on the islands (and reception someday later to come) Jean & Bryan incorporated both their shared Korean heritage & local Hawaiian tradition. Wearing beautiful handmade Korean hanboks, they brought their families’ culture to Hawaii. And, making the most of their chosen destination, their ceremony – performed by a Hawaiian priest – featured cultural traditions of The Islands, including a beautiful lei exchange.
