Ryan and Francesca traveled from San Diego to have the Hawaii destination wedding of their dreams. They wanted bright, tropical and fun, which I was so excited about because it’s my favorite style!
Since they have been together for more than 10 years, they are obviously best friends, and they have a beautiful son, Ocean. As lovers of the beach and the islands, their wedding day had a little bit of everything from Hawaii. We started with getting ready photos at the ‘Alohilani Resort with a gorgeous view of Waikiki, they said “I do” on the white sandy beach of Waimanalo (wait until you see the stunning arch details by Ocean Dreamer), and they partied with a city view at their Plaza Club reception in Honolulu.
They even had special guest singer Kimié Miner who is a faaaavorite of everyone here in Hawaii perform during the reception. Totally Hawaii, totally Ryan and Frankee, totally perfect!
