Marne and John of California didn't just throw a wedding—they staged a five-day, action-packed Hawaiian affair meant to make their 150 guests feel as entertained and celebrated as possible.

When their wedding day finally arrived, the couple exchanged vows in a romantic ceremony on the grounds of Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, followed by a vibrant, Morocco-inspired outdoor reception.
