Jennifer and Luke-Engaged

One of my favorite parts of being a wedding planner is developing a relationship with the couples I'm working with. I started working with Jennifer and Luke over 6 months ago. Because they live in California we did all of their planning over the phone and through emails. It was so nice to finally meet them in person upon their arrival to Hawaii. Jennifer worked hard on a lot of clever DIY favors and we're adding some special decor touches which I'll share when the photos come in. In just a couple of days Jennifer and Luke will be married and I am truly looking forward to their special day!

Candice and Todd-Moana Surfrider

I'm excited to share these pictures of a wedding that took place on the most romantic day of the year, Valentine's Day! I think it's so special when couples choose February 14th to celebrate their union. Candice and Todd are one of the sweetest couples you'll ever meet. There story of committed love could be a novel, yet on this special day they choose to focus on the celebration of their love and not the challenges that they met along the way. A close group of family and friends joined them on a sunny afternoon at the Moana Surfrider Hotel to share this very special day with them.

A beautiful dark wood arbor draped in luxurious chiffon and curly willow was created by Shilhi Seibel of Passion Roots. Various sizes of teal and fuchsia lanterns crisscrossed the lawn creating a dramatic and fantasy feel both during the day and in the evening when the sun set.

I love the ruffle detail on the brides bouquet.

Guests were treated to a delicious Satura cake and cake pop favors.

All of the beautiful linens were provided my REA designs including a romantic backdrop with blue uplighting.
Best wishes to Candice and Todd!
