Lanikuhonua Estate Wedding Video

Thank you for taking the time to check out Shoko + Issei’s Lanikuhonua Estate wedding video from Oahu, Hawaii! We were honored to capture their beautiful wedding day on July 16th, 2022.

Shoko and Issei met at junior year at University of Pennsylvania in 2009. Shoko came to study abroad and met Issei who was a third year student there. Issei had crushes on Shoko since the first day they met, and began to try to hang out in town, for desserts, in library etc. It took a while for Shoko to realize that Issei was going after her. Finally, three months after they met and after many texts (there was no whatsapp back then) before they left for winter break, Issei asked Shoko out to be his girlfriend. Shoko finally realized how important Issei became to her and we decided to start dating in winter 2009.

We hope you enjoy this Lanikuhonua estate wedding video!

About The Venue

Located on the Hawaiian island of Oʻahu, between the Ewa and Waiʻanae moku (district), the area was once the beloved vacationing home for the 15th ruling chief of ancient Oʻahu, Chief Kākuhihewa.

Today, the land is the responsibility of the James Campbell Company, who continues the legacy of Alice Kamokilaikawai Campbell, daughter of well-known business and community leaders, James and Abigail Kuaihelani Maipinepine Campbell. In 1939, Kamokila, as she was commonly known, chose this beachfront property as her home. Her home included a thatched Hawaiian hale (house) within the lush, tropical surroundings. She named this place Lanikūhonua, “Where Heaven Meets the Earth.”

Throughout her life, Kamokila dedicated Lanikūhonua as a place to celebrate cultural traditions of Hawaiʻi. Like her parents, Kamokila knew that caring for the land’s resources would provide a better environment and a better quality of life for Hawaiʻi’s people.
