Hawaii Dream Wedding

January 19, 2016 — by Griffin Thall


A destination wedding is something most of us can only dream about. For one of our Pura Vida Reps and favorite little wrist model @carakuulei , her dream became a reality!

Justin and Cara had the most beautiful Hawaii Dream wedding. (Sunday January 10th, 2016.) Their wedding took place on the island of Oahu, in a spacious backyard of a beautiful rental home in Kailua town. What they thought in the beginning would be just a small destination wedding, turned into a large amount of family and friends joining in for the celebration! Who wouldn’t want to attend a wedding in Hawaii, especially when it is celebrating the love and union of two very special people like Cara and Justin?! Every detail was perfect; from the flower crowns, handmade alter, Pura Vida bridesmaid gifts, every outfit, and the amazing weather day of! As if a photographer and videographer covering the whole day wasn’t enough, they even had drone pilot capturing the day from above!

Thank you @carakuulei  and @justincourage for your constant inspiration, sharing this day with us, and taking Pura Vida along for the journey! Be on the lookout on their Instagram for their wedding video!
