A Hawaiian Destination Wedding

  |   By Erin Ryley

Wendy and Phil soaked up the sun during their breathtaking Hawaiian destination wedding. The couple and 25 of their closest friends and family members settled into the stunning Fairmont Orchid on the big island of Hawaii, which proved to be the perfect ceremony and reception venue for the celebration. The couple incorporated several traditions native to the islands during their Hawaiian destination wedding ceremony, including a conch blower that announced the bride and a lei exchange between the families. Following the beautiful ceremony, guests arranged themselves at a long white modern table adorned with vibrant accents, including gorgeous white and red floral centerpieces. As this Hawaiian destination wedding celebration progressed, the newlyweds cut their red and white cake topped with fresh roses, which accentuated the tropical, yet modern, theme of the evening. After wining and dining, the couple and their guests made their way to the dance floor where they were serenaded by Hawaiian tunes -- a perfect ending to the romantic night.
