Jennifer and Justin

What a privilege it was to assist Jennifer and Justin with their wedding. Their family and friends really pulled together to accomplish a lot of DIY projects including all of the flowers, cake and favors. Because of restrictions at the reception site, we only had an hour to transform the blank canvas into a beautiful reception room. A small army of the couple's family and friends assembled including my two assistants, and linens were steamed, cake tiers assembled, favors placed, flowers arranged and the reception began on time and looking beautiful.

Jennifer and her bridesmaids got ready at the JW Marriott Ihilani resort. Lena Hanson worked her makeup magic making Jennifer a glowing bride.

I love this carefree picture of the bridal party.
Stealing a few minutes alone before the party begins.
The custom made wedding programs guided guests through the evening while adding a pop of color to the tables. Another DIY project by the bride and groom.
A memory table was set-up with pictures of loved ones that had passed away. A loving note and candle honored these special family members.
The four tier wedding cake was made by the bride's friend. Each layer was a different flavor including a delicious carrot cake tier.
Teley from Grand Finale Productions really had the party going.
I love the expression on the maid of honor's face as she realizes that she caught the bouquet.
The newlyweds, Jennifer and Justin.
Thank you to the very talented Joe Esser Photography for capturing these special moments and sharing them with me. It's a blessing to be allowed to share in a couple's special day and Jeniffer and I both agreed that we'll miss our planning meetings. I wish them all the best as they begin their life together.
