Fairmont Orchid Destination Wedding



Filed Under


Somewhere to stop and get the perfect view of everything, ask the question of a lifetime, and then celebrate the start to sharing one. The Fairmont Orchid set the stage for this Hawaiian destination wedding!

The Big Island is Courtney’s happy place, where Brett always knew he’d ask her to marry him. A hike along the Kohala Coast brought them to a lookout where he proposed, just steps away from where they’d later be married. And so a relationship began much like this golden piece of their story: he worked in game presentation, she in partnership marketing for an NBA team. Friendship lead to something more. Including a cross country move and career paths that eventually landed them in the same city!

He loves her equal parts passion and drive, and she loves his kindness and thoughtfulness. Together they make the sweetest couple! When they aren’t traveling and working in their dream jobs, they savor life through adventuring outdoors and quiet moments at home. Excited for time simply spent together, their wedding day was a beautiful display of bringing all they love to a place they love.

From the signaling sound of a Pū to sunset torch lighting, Courtney and Brett shared island traditions to honor the gift of this day with their guests! Every moment sparkled with love and radiated happiness.

Their families invited ours to celebrate in more ways than one & I’m excited to share more from this Fairmont Orchid destination wedding!
