My husband and I were looking for an upscale beach wedding in Hawaii, and we found the perfect spot at the Fairmont Orchid on the Kohala Coast. We had never been to the hotel or island before our actual wedding. Ashley our wedding planner made everything possible. From the moment we picked this hotel as our official site, Ashley walked us through everything we needed to know with ease. We were greeted with leis, upgraded to an ocean view suite, tropical fruit delivered to our room, all of our packages arrived safely in our room, our wedding attire was steamed, and everything was completely set up for us. The staff was extremely nice and willing to do what ever we needed, including sending all of our items back to the mainland after our wedding since we were taking off on our honeymoon.
We were married on the beach at sunset with a cocktail reception following the ceremony. Our guests loved having cocktails and food as the sun was setting (Ashely's idea) We were also able to enjoy our guests right after the ceremony instead of being rushed off to take pictures somewhere. The backdrop couldn't have been more breathtaking. We have the most amazing pictures from the pure beauty of the island. We chose to have an indoor sit down dinner reception in case it rained. The food was exquisite and fresh. Everything the island has to offer, white sand, black lava rock, palm trees and crystal blue water.
The best part of the trip was being able to be with all of our family and friends at the same hotel. We especially loved the lagoon beach that had so many sea turtles. We can't wait to go back and celebrate our anniversary.
