Kalani and Ben started their day getting ready separately with their bridal parties. They prepared for their special day in different rooms at 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay, and the moment they saw each other was captured by the talented team at Bradyhouse Studios. Kalani, her bridesmaids, mother, and mother-in-law shared a special moment together as she got into her dress. It was a beautiful moment filled with love and excitement. Kalani then headed down to the pool area where she had a private first look with her father, which included a warm embrace between the two of them. Meanwhile, Ben, his groomsmen, and father headed down in style to the ceremony site where Ben got ready for his first look with Kalani.

After their first look, they admired the details of their ceremony set up, which included a table of offerings to gift to their personal Buddha statues. They took a moment together to give their offerings and take a moment of self-reflection to the Buddha. One Buddha will be taken home to live in their home, while the other will remain on Kauai. It was a beautiful tradition that added more depth and meaning to their wedding ceremony.

After their Hawaiian-style ceremony, which embodied love, culture, and respect, they enjoyed cocktail hour by the beach then ventured off to take photos together around the property. They were relaxed, happy, and in love.

Their reception was held up on a bluff under a large tent that was adorned with fairy lights and floral lantern installations. The tables were set with vibrant florals and local fruits. There was a surprise fire knife and Tahitian dancing performance that left everyone in awe of the beautiful Hawaiian culture. The dancing continued, and everyone danced the night away. The love and energy could be felt all around.

Kalani and Ben’s wedding at 1 Hotel Hanalei Bay, photographed and filmed by Bradyhouse Studios was a romantic and intimate ceremony filled with love, happiness, and cultural traditions. The wedding was captured beautifully, and it is a testament to the talent and passion of the photographers and videographers at Bradyhouse Studios. This wedding is an inspiration to all brides and grooms around the world who want to have a destination wedding. It shows that with the right team, the perfect venue, and a lot of love, anything is possible. Congratulations to Kalani and Ben!
