Four Seasons Resort Lanai Wedding Ceremony

One of Hawaii’s most luxurious hotels I’ve ever visited was on the Island of Lanai, called the Four Seasons Resort Lanai. Larry and Rebecca contacted me to plan their destination wedding as an adventure elopement. Their plan was first to have a four seasons resort lanai wedding ceremony. Then soon after, head off adventuring with me around the Island.

When I initially showed up to the Island with the Maui Ferry to Manele Bay, Four Seasons Resort staff was waiting to escort me in their Tesla. When I arrived to the hotel, they showed me the way to my room and took care of me. It’s probably the best customer service I’ve had by any hotel or resort. They went above and beyond. I now know why my couple chose the Four Seasons for their hawaiian elopement and honeymoon.

Led by a local Hawaiian officiant and Ukulele player, the ceremony was beautiful, emotional, and peaceful. The officiant was kind and during our conversation, showed us his iPhone image of Justin Bieber whom he recently ran into on the beach. (image below). Larry and Rebecca signed their marriage license and off we went to explore the Island.

Wedding Adventuring in a 4WD

In order to get around Lanai and drive to the wedding locations I had researched, we needed a 4wd. The couple reserved an off-road Jeep for our adventure. The road we traveled on was quite long and definitely off-road. I had to get out of the jeep a few times to guide the driver (the groom) over some crazy terrain. We were a little nervous and out in the middle of nowhere. It probably ate up more time than we wanted, but when we arrived, we were treated with epic views we wouldn’t take back. Our time was short at the first location, as we had planned sunset photos at another location.

After traveling back uphill in 4wd, we made it to the Lanai beach just in time for sunset photos and were rewarded with beautiful light. We ended the evening with a starry night image, which closed the perfect wedding day at the Lanai Four Seasons Resort.


Lanai Four Seasons Resort Review

I would say to anyone who’s considering a Hawaiian honeymoon or a Hawaii Destination Wedding to definitely consider the Four Seasons Lanai. The customer service and world-class amenities are the best. Additionally, the food, the rooms, the ocean views, and even the Tesla ride, were all beyond my expectations. Any hotel or business should consider how Four Seasons operates. They are a model for excellent service.

Mendocino Wedding | Point Cabrillo Lighthouse Venue

Mendocino Wedding at Point Cabrillo Lighthouse
Mendocino and Fort Bragg, California
By Photographer Charleton Churchill

Point Cabrillo Lighthouse

Out of the Mendocino wedding venues in the area, Heather and Bill chose the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse for their destination wedding. They love lighthouses and specifically this beautiful one located near Fort Bragg, California where they share history together. They invited me to capture their coastal wedding together with friends and family. I arrived early and saw that fog was covering the area, including the light house museum, which I hoped would stay. The waves were crashing against the shore.

For the Point Cabrillo Light House, you cannot drive down to it. So guests must park in the upper parking lot and walk down the trail that leads to ceremony location. Heather and Bill arrived and I was ready to rock and roll. The ceremony started and it was go time. They even brought their beloved dogs. Even though the fog became more dense, it made the images that much better and unique.

The Reception and Coastal Sunset Photos

After the ceremony and family photos concluded, we drove over to the reception location in Fort Bragg, called The North Coast Brewing Company. Heather and Bill were excited to have everyone gather at one of their favorite brewing restaurants for great beer and food. After a bite and speeches, we returned back to the Point Cabrillo lighthouse for sunset photos and entrance into the museum’s top floor of the lighthouse. The fog departed, the sun shined, and the lighthouse was in its glory for our photo time together.

Heather and Bill were very kind and hospitable people from out of state. I was blessed to document their special day together. Congratulations to them and their families. Here are some wedding photos from their day on the California coast.
