[…in between New Zealand and Canada…]


We wanted a very intimate and sincere ceremony. We wanted to be able to really share the moment with our nearest and dearest. Diego is from New Zealand and Michelle is from Canada. Our friends were coming from London mostly so there’s nowhere in the world that wouldn’t be difficult for most of our guests to get to. So we just said “if we could pick anywhere in the world, where would it be?” And we decided on Hawaii. Plus it’s roughly in between New Zealand and Canada. And then we picked Puakea Ranch! Our cake was gluten free and vegan to cater to everyone’s dietary restrictions and honestly it was the best wedding cake we had ever had.The speeches from our friends and family added such a nice personal touch, and more than a few tears. The best part was that we properly got the chance to spend time with every single one of our guests.
