The Hale Kukui Orchard is one of the most amazing ceremony spots I’ve ever been to! The venue over looks the stunning cliffs of Waipio Valley. Haley and Jono chose the secluded orchard for their Big Island elopement. They first met almost ten years ago when they were freshman in college. Haley said, “We fell almost instantly in love. That same love has carried us 10 years to where we are today.” Haley is a mountain lover and Jono is a beach lover, so naturally Hawaii was the perfect place for their elopement! It was a gorgeous afternoon overlooking the valley, and we got to adventure around the forest of the orchard. Their ceremony was simple but stunning, with beautiful florals from Grace Flowers Hawaii. The officiant, Michaela Larson, gave an excellent Hawaiian experience and had everyone laughing. See all of my favorites from their Hale Kukui Orchard elopement below!
