Amber and Ronnie came all the way from California to get married in Hawaii! This Big Island wedding was such a special event.
Both Amber and Ronnie stayed at the Wyndham in Kona, where they got ready on the morning of their big day. Their first look was so cool! They didn’t want to see each other before their wedding ceremony, so they stood back to back to share a moment together. Holding hands, the two of them read letters to each other. After this emotional first look, it was time for their wedding ceremony!
Amber and Ronnie got married at an oceanside church called Living Stones Church in Kona, HI. With their dog Blue acting as the ring bearer, their ceremony began.
Pastor Andrew was awesome. You could really tell he cared about the two of them, and kept them calm with a good sense of humor. Their wedding ceremony was lighthearted yet still intentional and emotional!
After their wedding ceremony, everyone headed to Papa Kona for the reception!
Papa Kona has amazing food, and views of Kailua Bay in Kona because it’s located upstairs.
I love this venue – you can get married at Papa Kona, or just have your reception there like Amber and Ronnie did! Papa Kona’s team makes wedding planning a breeze with their on-site event coordinator and custom packages to fit your vision of your Hawaii wedding.
Amber and Ronnie had so many heartfelt touches within their Kona wedding day. Amber’s bouquet was decorated with a keychain to honor her father, and they had a lei throwing ceremony to commemorate loved ones who passed.
For their guest book, they had resin ocean art with beach sand and waves! What a neat way to commemorate a wedding that took place in Hawaii.
