Kualoa Ranch has some really amazing wedding venues. This Secret Island wedding took place on one of my favorite parts of their property! Secret Island is a white sand beach accessible by private boat from the ranch. It has a stunning view of Chinaman’s Hat, a unique landmark to the east side of Oahu and the Ko’olau Mountain range.
Daina and Mike traveled from Canada for their Secret Island wedding. Daina pulled a super boss bride move and drove herself from Waikiki to the ranch in a Porsche! It was amazing and literally an honor to see her get into the driver seat with her dress on. Their ceremony was very intimate with only their closest friends and family in attendance on the beach. Daina twirled and spun with her dress like she had been training for that very moment! The dock at Secret Island is pretty iconic, so I was stoked to get an epic twirl shot right on the dock. I caught them being extra adorable on the boat ride back to the ranch, and we drove to Kahana Bay to finish up photos. See all of my favorites below from their Secret Island Wedding.
