A Stormy Wedding Day At Lanikuhonua, Oahu :: Lauren & James

April 4, 2023

Nestled in the heart of Oahu, Lanikuhonua is a hidden gem for couples looking for a tropical paradise to say “I do”. This stunning venue boasts sweeping ocean views, lush greenery, and a sense of tranquility that will make any wedding day feel like a dream come true.

On a stormy day in Oahu, Lanikuhonua was the perfect location for Lauren and James special day. Luck was in their favor and they were able to avoid the flash floods affecting most of Oahu that day.

Lauren, an incredible athlete who attended both Stanford as well as Harvard Business School, looked absolutely stunning in her classic Sarah Seven gown and carried a bouquet of tropical blooms by Jeff Alencastre that perfectly complemented the natural beauty of the venue.

The bridesmaids wore soft, mix-matched flower tones that perfectly matched the color palette of the day, while the groom and his groomsmen opted for classic baby blue suits that added a touch of classic sophistication.

As the reception kicked off, guests were treated to a delicious feast of fresh seafood and island-inspired cuisine by MW Restaurant. The live band made for an incredible party and the newlyweds and guests went HARD dancing till curfew.

The wedding was a true reflection of Lauren and James love for each other and their passion for the natural beauty of Hawaii. From the stunning scenery to the carefully curated details by the team at Finishing Touch Hawaii, every element of the day came together to create an unforgettable experience that the couple and their guests will cherish for a lifetime.
