Turtle Bay Resort Wedding: Caleb and I met while attending Central Washington University. We met through mutual friends and had an instant connection. Both of us looked at each other as only friends, giving us the chance to get to know each other on a different platform.
A little over a year in, I had a dream that he confessed his love to me, I confided in a close friend and she thought it would be a good idea to put it in Caleb’s ear. Shortly after that encounter he confessed his love to me and we were dating the next day. Making the dream I had, become a reality.
In the early discussions of wedding locations we weren’t exactly sure where we wanted to have it. We knew we wanted to venture outside of Washington but just couldn’t pinpoint where.
After a brief discussion Hawaii seemed like a no brainer. We both had loved our separate previous trips to the island and after that was said out loud there was no going anywhere else. That would be where we say our “I do’s.”
Turtle bay’s glamour and location instantly intrigued me. The chapel with the Hawaiian outdoors, plus the benefit of being in a resort were three big things on my checklist. We were already in Hawaii, but the correct backdrop, and outdoor feels were all things I searched for.
My wedding style was white-out. Plain and simple I wanted everyone in white. I thought it was a beautiful style and I was not worried about anyone upstaging me on my day. Many people questioned me and told me if I was sure I wanted other people to wear white to my wedding. Me being who I am, didn’t entertain it for a second. As soon as I said I wanted an all white wedding, it was happening.
The all white wedding turned out clean and effortless, everyone in all white under the chapel was exactly how I imagined it, and as soon as my guests saw it in person they couldn’t have agreed more.
