Ever wonder what it’s like to get married in a dream-like luxury wedding paradise? For those of you looking for the perfect Hawaii Luxury Wedding Venue, look no further than the Four Seasons Lanai. Lanai is an exclusive island that is a dream escape for relaxation. With the gorgeous mountains, seaside cliffs and broad beaches, there is natural beauty everywhere you look. Couple this with tropical flowers, deep blue ocean and bright greenery, who could not ask for a more picture-perfect backdrop? And what better place where you can extend your special day into an activity filled wedding weekend? As well as take advantage of the luxury spa to relax before your big day, hit the golf course with your wedding party and family, host a sunset sail or private luau for your guests, and possibly end with a seaside brunch post wedding day.
Whatever it is, the Four Seasons Lanai pulls out all the stops when it comes to cuisine and five star service and is exactly what the Unveiled Hawaii team was presented with after coming on board to take part in the planning of Maggie and Todd’s three day Lanai Wedding soiree. We fell in love over and over again with the romantic atmospheres that this wedding venue had to offer, which had both elegant indoor and outdoor spaces that allowed our team to create the unique and vibrant vision our bride and groom had in mind. The natural lighting of the outdoor space set the stage for swoon-worthy pictures – a dream come true for a destination wedding planner. And we are sure you will agree as you step inside of this spectacular celebration of true love!
To begin we start with a First Look in the seclusion of the 12th Hole on the Manele Golf Course high atop a sweeping cliffside of black lava rock surrounded by the mighty Pacific Ocean.
In an effort to bring to life Maggie’s vision of capturing the sunset, coupled with her multi-colored selection of each of her 12 bridesmaids dresses, Lorrie Betsill Nielson, founder and creative director for Unveiled Hawaii, pieced together 12 different bouquets that would compliment hers while uniquely standing on their own.
Those colors flowed through in the simple but elegant Lanai Wedding décor where 160 guests took part in witnessing the exchanging of their heartfelt and reminiscent wedding vows that walked each one through their journey to this special day.
Enter into the wedding reception where stunning florals created to emulate the sunset and compliment the bridesmaids dresses were sprinkled throughout. A combination of lucite and dark wood signage alongside the custom designed paper goods showcasing their keepsake wedding “whale motif” kept the guests in the know.
After a sunset grand entrance that led straight into a very well – rehearsed first dance, the night was filled with a remarkable dinner that provided whole hearted and sincere toasts with five star cuisine and desserts. And if that all was not enough, what better way to entertain the well-traveled attendees than to the have world renowned professional DJ and music producer Raffael Deluca on board to provide the music set list throughout the evening. Mission accomplished Maggie and Todd!
Look no further for your Hawaii Wedding Venue as clearly the Four Seasons Lanai has everything in this little slice of Island Paradise!
