Secret Island has been on our bucket list wedding venues for the island, and while we have shot numerous times at Kualoa Ranch, Mariel + Mike’s wedding would be our first time taking the boat to the private island. From the start, clouds were hanging suspiciously low on the windward side, threatening some summer-time moisture. However, for pretty much the entire evening, the rain stayed offshore, with only a passing light shower. The soft, filtered light from the clouds made for unreal photographic conditions, with even the slightest sunset colors coming through! Their ceremony on the private beach, followed by a reception by the ancient Hawaiian fishpond, made for an amazing first experience with Secret Island!
