Our Story – Andrea & Brian’s Destination Wedding in Hawaii

May 16, 2021


Andrea and Brian’s Destination Wedding in Hawaii took place on the lush lawn of the 5 Palms in Wailea. Guests were treated to sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and some of the sweetest ceremony moments we’ve seen. From a trio of adorable flower girls to the soft and genuine glances of love between our bride and groom, this was a wedding day flooded with affection!

The Destination Wedding in Hawaii

The ceremony began with the traditional blowing of the conch shell, which cued three of the cutest flower girls we’ve seen! Following the sweet petal tosses, Andrea made her debut on the arm of her handsome son. Wearing a mermaid-flair gown with a lace bodice and a cathedral-length train, Andrea out splashed the ocean! Our hearts were glowing as we watched the loving expression on Brian’s face as he finally got up close with his bride. Sweet moments like these are priceless!

Our Couple’s Story

Andrea is a therapist, and Brian works as a plumber. They both grew up in Fremont, California and each has a wonderful son from previous marriages. Andrea and Brian were part of each other’s social circle growing up, but they ended up going their separate ways. Until one fateful day when they reconnected at a party of a mutual friend. From then on, it was nothing but love.

Our bride tells their story: “We got engaged on New Year’s Eve of 2020. Brian proposed at a party at our friend’s house. I had no idea that he was going to propose, or even that he was thinking of proposing, so I was very surprised. It was getting close to midnight and Brian had help from a couple of our friends who knew about the proposal.”

“They gathered everyone into the living room and turned the lights up and the music down. Our friend Joey said, “Brian wants to make a toast”, and he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. As I said, I was totally caught off guard but I was so happy and of course said yes. All of our friends were there, which made the proposal extra special. I couldn’t have wanted anything more. I loved that he proposed in front of our people. It was such a great night and I will never forget it.”
