The Location & Ceremony
This vibrant couple got married on the Hawaiian island of Oahu at Kualoa Ranch, which is most famously known as the backdrop for the Jurassic Park films. The stunning valley provided the perfect venue for Blake and David's glamorous mauve-toned tent wedding. With a very large bridal party (13 bridesmaids—all dressed in different shades and styles of pink—and 8 groomsmen, to be exact) this wedding was destined to be a wonderful time from the start.
The ceremony was officiated by Reverend Michael Nelson under garlands of white orchids that formed a curtain, pulled back on each side to allow the spectacular green mountains to shine through from the distance. Blake was given away by her father, and looked so stunning walking down the aisle to "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" that David shed a few tears.
At the end of cocktail hour, guests were invited into the sailcloth tent under a canopy of twinkling lights and low hanging chandeliers decorated with hanging greenery and white orchid and crystal strands that cascaded down toward the tables.
Guest tables were adorned with silk rose gold linens and wood vineyard chairs, while each table was decorated with multiple floral arrangements filled with blush and white roses, gold leaves, and pampas grass in square vases surrounded by gold mercury candle votives. Each place was set with white china, gold silverware, glass stemware, and lavender velvet napkins.
Guests danced the night away on the wooden dance floor with Blake, David, and all the adorable flower girls and ring bearers in attendance.
