Alicia & Ray - Married at Moli'i Gardens Secret Island

Alicia & Ray enter into their reception at Molii Gardens in Kualoa Ranch down the spiral garden staircase.

So Alicia & Ray had already been married a year when they ended up celebrating and “officially” getting married in front of their friends and family at Molii Gardens in Kualoa Ranch. They had tied the knot on the same day a year earlier at a Taco Bell in Las Vegas :) Since Taco Bell was their favorite food and they heard of one where you could tie the knot, they decided to do that before coming to Hawaii! They were so chill and just really enjoyed everyone’s company on their wedding day. Her mom cried frequently, her nephew wrote “I like you. - Tom” on their welcome block, it started raining during their first dance and they shrugged it off, they kissed a pig and made all the little boys cover their mouths, and they - along with all their guests - took a boat across Molii Pond to Secret Island to share their vows in front of Kaneohe Sandbar and Chinaman’s Hat.
