12 Sep Qian + Guanyu | 08.22.19 | Four Seasons Oahu | Paradise Cove Crystal Chapel
Qian + Guanyu are both originally from China but coincidentally met for the first time while they were both here in the States. Guanyu was on a business trip while Qian was at university when their paths collided. They fell in love and we’re sure they must have felt a sense of home together being so far away from their families.
Guanyu filled their suite at the Four Seasons Oahu with tons of pink heart shaped balloons on the morning of their wedding including the sweetest ‘HAPPY WEDDING’ spelled out on the bed in rose gold metallic letters for his bride. It was all so sweet! We took advantage of the gorgeous natural light on the balcony to capture all of Qian’s absolutely stunning bridal details. From her lush white florals to her lace Jimmy Choo wedding heels we couldn’t get over every little piece.
Guanyu got dressed in to a classic black suit and bow tie that looked amazing! Qian slipped in to her off the shoulder ballgown with the assistance of her mama right before she helped put her diamond necklace on. After this her maid of honor stepped in to help with putting her shoes on. Through every portion of the day her sweet bridesmaids helped make sure everything was comfortable and every hair was in place for their dear friend.
They decided to have their ceremony itself in the Paradise Cove Crystal Chapel. It was stunning with huge windows letting in soft pretty light. The aisles were lined with large extravagant floral arrangements on simplistic gold stands. Qian’s dad escorted her to her groom while their harpist played softly. They enjoyed a meaningful ceremony and promised each other a lifetime of commitment and love before sealing the deal with a kiss!
Since they had such an intimate wedding their reception was hosted beneath a lovely wooden cabana draped in white. One long rectangular table sat beneath it, covered in a beautiful rosette table cloth with chiavari chairs for each guest lining the sides. Grand floral arrangements sat aloft through the center of the table alternating with lower florals between them. Chandeliers hung above them from the top of the cabana. Every place setting had a personalized menu with each guests name on it along with a napkin and one rose. Their cake was also beautiful with a golden piano sitting on the top tier and musical notes wrapped around it.
The happy couple entered their reception to the cheers of their closest friends and loved ones! They sat in the center of them and enjoyed their five course meal while talking with their awesome company. We slipped away for a moment to capture the stunning sunset that was happening and then returned to heartfelt toasts from those dearest to their hearts.
They enjoyed such a stunning day truly soaking up all the love around them! We had so much fun getting to capture their lovely Hawaii wedding day before they traveled off, back to China to have another special day dedicated to their grandparents and other family members who couldn’t make it to this one.
