Kualoa Ranch Wedding

Kualoa Ranch Wedding: Selema and Brett met at a local grill that they had never been before. It was fate! Selema was stunned by Brett’s looks and had to find a way to get his number.  Brett was at the bar waiting for a drink when all of a sudden Selema comes and immediately gets the bartender’s attention for a drink.

“Did you just steal my drink?” Brett said. Selema with a huge smirked and replied “Sorry” then walked away. Brett was speechless, but knew this is his girl!

Their first date was a week later at a little Mexican restaurant in her neighborhood. Brett gave a postcard from his travel from Europe to formally ask Selema out and this begins their new chapter!

Their wedding venue was at Kualoa Ranch in Hawaii with breathtaking views. The wedding was so unique and we can’t get enough of it!

Brett and Selema traveled to 30+ countries together over the course of 8 years and had the idea of incorporating that into their wedding theme by having globes, flags, and even international foods for appetizers!

Selema’s vision of wearing her grandma’s wedding dress from 1947 was the show stopper of the day as well as how gorgeous she looked (shoutout to Whik’d Hair and Makeup)! 

The vendors were absolutely amazing to work with and did such a killer job!

Pili Aloha Productions helped throughout the whole day by organizing, planning, and making sure things ran on time. Hawaii Events Unlimited nailed their dance floor and about everyone was breaking a move out there!
