Planning a wedding in a city (let alone country) that you don’t even live in is no easy task. But with the help of Wildwood Event Co, Diane and Dave’s elegantly modern wedding at Five Star Retreat came together flawlessly. Not to mention the attention to detail is incredible. There was the perfect mix of warm and cool tones — especially the contrast between the earth-toned floral arrangements against the bridesmaids’ teal gowns in addition to the black and gold tablescapes. And while there’s plenty of elements that will make you ooh and aww, there’s just as many magical moments seen through these dynamic images from Vow Collective that will make you gush too!

Five Star Retreat
Kris of Wildwood Event Co: This wedding was such a labor of love. With Diane and Dave being stationed in Okinawa, Japan in the Air Force, planning consisted of many late-night calls (because of the time difference) and a constant stream of communication. But after a reschedule of the wedding date because of military travel restrictions, we made it happen and it was more beautiful than ever!
Because of rain on the wedding day, we adjusted and set up the ceremony in the beautiful new open-air chapel at Five Star Retreat, which turned out to be so stunning! After the ceremony, the guests transitioned into cocktail hour at the main lodge while we flipped the space in the chapel for dinner. Diane really wanted a family feel for dinner, so we did family style seating!
Kris: After dinner and toasts from many loved ones and the couple themselves, guests danced the night away in the main lodge!
Honestly, this wedding was such an honor to be part of! With this being a destination wedding for the couple and nearly all their guests, it was so special to witness the outpouring of love throughout the entire wedding weekend of family and friends who traveled from all over to be together!
