The Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau has begun marketing Hawaii to gay and lesbian couples who are planning to marry.

According to Civil Beat, this is the nonprofit's first real push to market destination weddings to the LGBT community.

On Monday, the marketing organization released a six-minute video highlighting the surprise wedding of Oahu couple Christian Alarid and Shayne Barnes.

The video quickly went viral on social media.

Alarid serves in the Air Force, while Barnes recently completed his service in the Marine Corps.

The couple got engaged in June and were planning to marry in 2016. The men had agreed to be models in a wedding photo shoot for the bureau. Instead, they received their dream wedding complete with family and friends who traveled to Honolulu to witness the couple exchange vows.
