If this fun-filled day, captured by D.P. Weddings, doesn't make you want to jump on the first flight to Kona, Hawaii, then we don't know what will. In fact, this pretty celebration, held at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, is giving us serious location envy. After all, who wouldn't want to tie the knot at a luxury resort overlooking white sand beaches and the clear blue Pacific?

While the location itself is obviously incredible, it's not all we love about Melissa and Rich's wedding. This pair did far more than just tie the knot in paradise — they made sure their day was infused with pieces of Hawaii, too. Some other details that totally won us over were airy fabric ceremony structure, locally inspired ceremony, and the bride's beautiful tropical bouquet.

But when it came to the reception, this pair went totally classic (Read: seriously fun). From the second Melissa and Rich were pronounced husband and wife the night became all about celebrating. From their choreographed first dance to the never-empty dance floor, this couple and their guests made sure the night was a blast.
