Bridget and Daryl reached out to TGA early 2019 to assist them with their wedding. They had booked their venue and a few vendors, but because this was a destination wedding for them, they needed someone who could help them on the ground figure out the details of their day.
They planned to be married at the Moana Surfrider, the oldest hotel on the island of Oʻahu. My dad spent 30 years of his life working at this hotel and I remember doing easter egg hunts, New Yearʻs Eve parties, and playing yard games with the other employees kidʻs when I was little, so having an event on the Diamond Lawn was a bit nostalgic.
Both, Bridget and Daryl, looked absolutely stunning on their wedding day. Bridget wore one of the most amazing gowns I have ever seen and Daryl sported a custom suit that matched his groomsmen. They looked like royalty as they walked down the aisle at the famous pink hotel, The Royal Hawaiian. They were escorted in by their loved ones and fur baby, Henny!
Choosing to get married at two separate locations required us to bring on more staff than usual. At the time we had never executed a wedding with multiple locations, but it went absolutely seamlessly as we escorted guests over to the Moana Surfrider. Both hotels have such a rich history in Waikiki, so it was a treat for even us to be in attendance.
Right from the start, I knew that Bridget and Darylʻs style was impeccable. Bridget had dreams for a clean white elegant wedding with elements of rattan and wood to add in warmth. Everything she chose for her wedding was carefully considered, down to the custom laser cut name tags placed at each seat and the gorgeous white hydrangeas that sat in the middle of the tables.
Because this was the first time to Hawaiʻi for a lot of their guests, the couple made it a point to create an experience for their attendees. A musical performance from local artist Kaipo Kapua and a tahitian group that featured a fire knife dancer were just some entertainment for their guests. They even brought in Roman from Kolohe Kai to sing their favorite song for their first dance, while a drone dropped rose petals from the sky. Seriously, how romantic is that?
To create more of that dreamy ambience, Bridget and Daryl rented lounge sets that scattered the terrace. They were perfect for their guests to kick up their feet and relax in between dances. They also rented a marquee sign that sported their first name initials, which made the perfect backdrop to photos.
Overall, the wedding turned out to be a perfect Thursday evening filled with laughter, good food, strong drinks, and a ton of love. After the event, we checked in with Bridget and Daryl where they said that even to this day they cry thinking about how perfect their wedding was and we were so thankful to them for allowing us to play a role in their wedding day.
