This wasn’t a destination wedding - it was coming home for Christa, who grew up right here in Kailua, just half an hour from Kualoa Ranch. These two crossed oceans to find each other, so of course they had to bring their traditions in their own special way, from Bill welcoming his Kiwi friends and family in their native language to Christa surprising him with a hula on the dance floor. Check out their stunning tropical, boho themed wedding at Moli'i Gardens in Kualoa Ranch, followed by a day-after adventure hike to take advantage of Oahu's scenic views. With so many tears and hugs from family and friends, a roast for the groom (said with lots of love accompanied by a few gifts) by his best friends, and dancing into the night under the stars and palm trees, it was truly a wedding that encompassed the meaning of aloha.
