Intimate Destination Wedding in Hawaii

Bella, an operations manager, and Larry, a piping designer, traveled to Colorado for a Texans vs Broncos game, but little did Bella know, Larry had the romantic surprise of a lifetime waiting for her on their trip. “On November 1, 2018, we planned a hike to a lake in the mountains with ‘a friend’ of his,” recalls Bella. “Turned out he was a professional photographer. About an hour into the hike he asked me to sit beside him on a rock overlooking the lake. While admiring the beautiful scenery he tried to get romantic but failed, as I refused to stop throwing snow at him. He finally stood me up and got down in one knee and asked to marry me. With tears in my eyes, I accepted.”

A year later, it was only fitting for the travel-loving couple to have an intimate destination wedding in Oahu, Hawaii. The bride and groom exchanged vows in a romantic beachfront ceremony, overlooking the pristine blue waters of Kāne‘ohe Bay, all beautifully documented by Houston wedding photographer Civic Photos and Houston wedding videographer Meant To Be Films. Following their outdoor ceremony, the newlyweds set sail on a private catamaran cruise and joined 72 of their loved ones in an open-air reception surrounded by lush tropical foliage and majestic mountains. Bella describes the wedding decor as, “Tropical with natural flower arrangements that accentuated the beautiful scenery,” featuring a lovely color palette of ivory, gold and burgundy. Guests dined on coconut shrimp, Jamaican jerk chicken and pork, and Mahi Mahi, before dancing the night away under the Hawaiian moonlight. The bride’s favorite moment? “Our first dance after becoming Mrs. Herrera.” Join us in swooning over this beautiful destination wedding in Hawaii. Congratulations, Bella & Larry!
