There are so many things I just love about this venue! If you’re looking for a Hawaii wedding venue, make sure you check out Sunset Ranch. It’s nestled into the mountains of North Shore and it’s the perfect combination of tropical paradise and laid back ranch! You can really make this venue as upscale, simple, glam, or laid back. It’s so pretty that the views do the work for you if you’re looking for a more simple feel, but you can also add tons of details to create a whole other look!

The most popular spot for a Sunset Ranch wedding ceremony is under the gorgeous vine-lined trees that look over a deep lush valley! From there, you’ll have tons of options for where you can have the reception! If you love animals, you can even have one of the beautiful horses join you for some photos!!! They are the most beautiful and gentle horses ever so I highly recommend this experience!!!

North Shore

Not to mention, North Shore is arguably my favorite side of Oahu! It has a quieter and more remote feel to it! So if you’re looking for an Oahu wedding venue and you want to make sure your day is completely private, this may be it for you!

And back to this gorgeous couple!!! Sunnee and Ed are both locals to Hawaii (born and raised!) and knew they wanted to get married locally. I freakin’ loved how creative and excited Sunnee was about the whole wedding, and how much Ed exuded pure joy!!! In short, they are the type of couple that truly RADIATE happiness together. She’s a self described city girl and Ed a country boy, and they are just the perfect match in every way!!!
