Planning a wedding can be intimidating especially if you're a chill couple. If to you the idea of a great party is just hanging out with a few of your closest friends at your place and ordering from your go-to taco joint, hosting a fancy plated dinner paired with wine you'd never normally drink just seems wrong. So why do it? Your wedding should be a reflection of who you are as a couple. Yes, there should be a certain level of formality, but that's where a good wedding planner comes in. They can help you find the balance between your everyday personality and your dream wedding day, and this laid-back wedding in Oahu is the perfect example of how to do just that.
Tropical Moon Events made sure that the couple was comfortable with every part of their big day, from their easy-going yet chic ensembles to their drink selection. For them, going with an outdoor venue like Kualoa Ranch was a no-brainer. It allowed the natural beauty of Oahu to shine while serving that chill island vibe. Cocolani Gardens created this stunning bouquet and used tropical greenery to accent the tables at the reception, keeping the design light and minimalist. Instead of forced posed portraits, Palms & Lace encouraged the couple to be themselves and have fun, they were just there to document their love story.

Kayla and Kyle got married on December 11, 2021, at Kualoa Ranch on Oahu Hawaii. Kayla had moved to Hawaii for her boyfriend Kyle, just months after they met. And how did they meet? At a bar where Kyle was so struck by Kayla's beauty that, naturally, he decided to start doing pull-ups in the bar to get her attention, but hey, it worked! This kind of antic is a daily occurrence for Kyle, and his outrageously fun personality is about living life to the fullest. Kayla is no different, so the couple decided to start a life full of adventure on Oahu.
When it came to planning their wedding, they wanted it to reflect their relationship: sweet, laid-back, and with a big emphasis on fun. Their wedding was exactly that. They booked small local vendors, had proteas shipped from a friend on Maui, and hired their favorite local rock cover band to play. The best part may have been Dos Jefes taco truck since the couple refused to have a traditional dinner. The one traditional element Kayla wanted was a stunning cake and Mana Cakes custom-made a tropical printed cake for her. The couple took a popular venue on Oahu and made it entirely their own.
