An Elegant Wedding at Sunset Ranch in Haleiwa, Hawaii

Shawn and Maya met while out on the town one fateful night. "Shawn made sure we snapped a photo and even said, 'You're going to want a picture of the night we met!' We still have that photo," says Maya. The pair celebrated a romantic, tropical wedding at Sunset Ranch in Haleiwa, Hawaii after a romantic proposal in Kona on the Big Island. "Our wedding timeline was less than traditional -- guests arrived at the ranch and were greeted by the bride and groom," says Maya. "We mingled with them for an hour enjoying appetizers and hugs." The couple chose a mix of modern and rustic details to decorate their wedding venue. Traditional white, wooden folding chairs made up the ceremony aisle and the reception dinner seating, romantic arrangements of pink and peach flowers and leafy, green eucalyptus made up the centerpieces and aisle decor, while environmentally friendly bamboo chargers kept the dinnerware light and modern.
