 Kauai Weddings

Cher Weldon and Ron Jones traveled from Colmesneil, Texas to the beautiful North shore of Kauai where First Class Weddings arranged an intimate Hawaiian wedding ceremony.  Cher and Ron’s First Class Wedding took place on one of the most beautiful beaches in Hawaii on the island of Kauai, officially named Kauapea beach.

Kauai Weddings at Kauapea Beach (aka Secret Beach)

This beach is more commonly known as Secret Beach which is a wonderfully romantic and secluded location to tie the knot.

Inspired by Tori Spelling’s wedding, Cher had a distinct vision of what she wanted for her special day. The result…a perfect comprimise that included a romantic beach ceremony with Hawaiian Ukelele music, an aisle way scattered with orchids, custom sand castle display and a romantic private catered dinner under the stars.

Secret Beach Hideaway Kauai - Hale Lani

Cher and Ron stayed at Secret Beach Hideaway's Hale Lani (shown above & below), a stunningly gorgeous cottage that sits atop a cliff overlooking the couple's ceremony location on Secret Beach.

The Hale Lani Kauai is secured by a gated entrance and is extremely private. This truly is a perfect hideaway for a Kauai Wedding.

Flowers included an all white Calla Lily bouquet, a traditional Maile Lei for the groom and a white Orchid Lei for the bride. Cher and Ron exchanged leis in a traditional Hawaiian lei exchange symbolizing their love and commitment to each other.

Cher, Ron and their Kauai wedding vendors - including a musician, a minister, photographer and even a sand castle artist made their way down the steep path en-route to the beach.

Custom Sand Castle

It was no easy feat yet First Class Weddings hired professional sand castle builder Julian Miller and he brought in the appropriate tools, sand and other secret ingredients to make this custom sand castle oasis exclusively for Cher and Ron!

Private Kauai Wedding Dinner Reception

This Kauai wedding was lit by Tiki Torches and candle light, Mr. and Mrs. Jones celebrated with a privatly catered dinner in a romantic canopy on the grounds of Secret Beach Hideaway's Hale Lani.

Congratulations Cher and Ron Jones!  First Class Weddings is honored to have been a part of your special day.

Our Maui Wedding

Hawaii Bride

Our Maui Wedding at Sugarman Estate

Our Maui wedding took place at sunset with our closest family present. The venue, Sugarman Estate, is a private property overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the Southern coast of Maui. When I arrived I was in awe at the beauty that surrounded me. This already picturesque venue had been transformed into my dream for our Maui wedding.

Our Maui Wedding Ceremony Location

By the water sat 12 bamboo chairs attached with purple hydrangeas. An aisle way lined with pink orchids lead to a custom wooden arch adorned with hydrangeas, roses and orchids in shades of my favorite colors which were purple and pink. Glass bulbs with pink orchids submerged in water hung perfectly alongside hanging votive candles, framed the backdrop of the ocean.

My bridal party consisted of my two nieces, a flower girl and a Junior bridesmaid.  Guests were greeted with my nieces placing Hawaiian leis around their necks as they entered the property. I had not seen my fiancé the day of the wedding and peered out the glass doorways to watch while everyone took their places.

Junior Bridesmaid

Our Maui wedding ceremony began as the officiate, dressed in traditional Hawaiian robe, blew a conch shell.  The string quartet began to play and the flower girl, then junior bridesmaid made their way down the aisle.  I walked down the aisle to Pacelbell’s Cannon in D, with my mother and father by my side.  I approached my now husband, just as the sun began to set.

We incorporated Hawaiian tradition into our ceremony by placing leis around each others necks and each of our parents.  We exchanged traditional wedding vows, placed wedding bands on the others finger and shared our first kiss as husband and wife.  After we were officially named Mr. and Mrs. Waggoner, we concluded our Maui wedding with the release of two white doves.

Hawaii Wedding Reception

Our Maui Wedding Dinner at Sunset

After the ceremony, our guests sipped Hawaiian cocktails while my husband and I took sunset photographs along Makena’s beautiful coves. To the side of the ceremony site was a white canopy which hung Chinese lanterns over a long rectangular table covered with white and purple linens. Floating candles and square vases of green, blue, white, pink and purple flowers sat atop a bamboo table runner.  Being as our Maui wedding was such a small and intimate affair, we opted for an elegant 4-course meal for our reception.

Wedding Cake with Orchids

We sat down to dinner as a jazz duo played, and shared our first dance before the first course arrived.  We ate, were toasted by our families and enjoyed orchid decorated cake.  As we drove off in the limo at the end of the night I couldn’t help but think what an amazing day it had been.  Thanks to First Class Weddings our Maui wedding completely exceeded our expectations.  I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to begin a life together.
