Royal Hawaiian and Moana Surfrider Hotel Wedding Photos

Bridget and Daryl’s Waikiki Wedding Day | Honolulu Wedding Photographer

A Honolulu wedding day does not get more iconic than combining two of the most sought after Waikiki wedding venues: the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and the Moana Surfrider Hotel! Everything about this Honolulu wedding day was stunning (no surprise there) and the entire day went perfectly (the perk of working with the BEST Waikiki wedding vendor team).

The Royal Hawaiian Hotel is best known for its pink exterior and the “Royal Hawaiian” steps where we took many photos. How could you not?! The garden area at the hotel was the perfect spot to have an elegant wedding ceremony in the middle of busy Waikiki. You can have a wedding at the beach and not get married on the beach – and it can still be all things classic Oahu!

The Royal Hawaiian Hotel and the Moana Surfrider Hotel is THE BEST combination of venues for pulling off a high-end beach wedding day in Waikiki!

Guests, family and the wedding party all moved on to the Moana Surfrider Hotel for a beautiful Waikiki wedding reception. Bridget and Daryl planned elegant details with touches of “tropical” – check out the coconuts on the tables… absolute perfection! I could not get over how incredible all the food looked as well!

When it comes to a gorgeous dinner buffet, the Moana Surfrider Hotel does it BIG!

Bridget and Daryl entered their reception to their 200 closest friends and family cheering them on. Their first dance was SO ROMANTIC and even ended in a shower of rose petals. These newlyweds ate, drank, and danced the night away with the ones they love most and I was thrilled to be a part of it!
