With the location settled, the couple focused on pretty and personal details to make the day feel their own. Morgan wanted an ethereal secret garden feel for the intimate seated dinner which we achieved with chandeliers suspended over the dining tables, stunning place settings and tons of candles. Guests were able to dance late into the night under the stars with the addition of a silent disco! By tuning into one of three different channels, they picked the music that got them dancing and singing along! Enjoy their gorgeous secret garden wedding below.

Morgan is a Dallas native, Dante is from California and the two envisioned a romantic destination wedding where their closest friends and family could come together to celebrate their cross-country romance. They had selected their dream location and months before the big day, the venue cancelled! Crushed, the couple felt they were back at square one. Enter their planner, who had recently visited the neighboring island of Lana’i and knew that the lush tropical setting overlooking the water at the island’s Four Seasons would be picture perfect. Morgan and Dante were thrilled and relieved, as though it was the perfect plan they never knew existed!
