For Mariah and Jason, intimacy and tradition were key elements they wanted to incorporate into their special day. With a desire for a smaller, more meaningful celebration, they opted for a venue that would allow them to share their love with their closest family and friends. And what’s even better they were all right on the sand! The Royal Kona Resort provided the perfect backdrop for their intimate gathering, with its picturesque views and tranquil ambiance setting the stage for a day they would never forget.

As Mariah walked down the aisle, radiant in her lace gown, and Jason stood waiting with a big smile. Beforehand, they told us they were feeling a mixture of excitement, joy, and a little bit of nerves all rolled into one! It’s totally natural to feel about a moment they have been waiting for their entire lives! Surrounded by loved ones, they exchanged vows, sealing their commitment to each other with a kiss.

A Family Celebration

Their ceremony blended tradition and personal touches beautifully, with traditional Native American elements woven throughout. These sacred rituals added a deeper layer of meaning to their union, honoring their heritage and the journey that brought them together. Naturally, there were a few tears shed during the ceremony! It meant so much to the couple to incorporate their kids and their culture with touches of aloha too. The result was just what they envisioned thanks to our fantastic team and vendors!
