Real Weddings-Cheryl and David

David and Cheryl chose 10.10.10 for their wedding date – a very memorable day, that’s for sure. I love their bold color scheme of black, white and red. Cheryl incorporated a lot of special do-it-yourself projects and was wonderful to work with as she was one of the most organized brides we’ve worked with. Their intimate ceremony was followed by a cocktail reception at Oceanfront Oasis. Guest took home personalized wine glasses and a treat bag of black and white M&M’s. These beautiful images are courtesy of Christie Pham Photography.

Real Weddings-Sharon and Eugene

We absolutely loved working with Sharon and Eugene to plan their wedding.  They are such a fun couple, and it showed all throughout their wedding.  Case in point, their grand entrance song was “Jump-Jump”.  Eugene served our country in Iraq as an Army officer so they incorporated many Army touches.  I love when couples do things like this to help personalize their wedding - it makes it all that more memorable.

Guests were transported to "Secret Island" and back to Moli'i Gardens for cocktail hour and the reception. Guests dined on food provided by Catering Connection, and for dessert enjoyed an amazing cupcake tree created by A Cake Life, and shave ice – a classic Hawaiian treat.  Su-V Expression created a floralscape of green succulents and purple flowers with deep purple satin linens.  Family and friends danced all night with DJ Troy Michael.

Much sought after California based photographer, Caroline Tran provided these beautiful images.  We’re excited to share that Sharon and Eugene’s wedding is being featured in the July issue of Destination Wedding's and Honeymoons Magazine.

Real Wedding-Miwako and Craig

A few showers wouldn't dampen Miwako and Craig’s wedding day. We truly loved working with this amazing couple to create an understated, gorgeous wedding at the Oceanfront Oasis in Kahala. Miwako hired us for full service coordination so we sent her various inspiration photos which started the process. From there we helped with color selection, mood, lighting, linens, printed items and more. Miwako selected blush tones for her color palate and Shilhi of Passion Roots did an amazing job incorporating those colors into her lush florals. I am always amazed with the gorgeous bouquets she creates.

Craig Matsumoto of Streams Hawaii provided live music for the ceremony as well as soothing dinner music while guests dined on a plated meal from Kahala Caterers. In addition to the beautiful, round, hexagon and square tiered cake created by Kristin of A Cake Life, because Craig's company owns Beards Papa, guests were treated to a delectable cream puff tower for dessert. And Stefanie of Absolutely Loved Photography did an awesome job photographing Miwako and Craig’s special day.

Real Weddings-Kitchie and Tommy

Working with Kitchie and Tommy to plan their Lanikuhonua wedding was an absolute delight. They had a beautiful ceremony complete with Filipino traditions which the Reverend Mike Nelson officiated over. Kitchie’s wedding dress was made by a designer in the Philippines, and her aunt hand-beaded different patterns on the buri fans – we love all these little details. And the flowers girls were simply adorable.

Kitchie and Tommy wanted an Al Fresco dining experience so they incorporated lanterns and cafe lights strung from the trees. Guests enjoyed a delicious dining experience from Chai's Island Bistro and a well-run bar and self-service beverage station including an island favorite, plantation ice tea, from Aloha on the Rocks. Anderson Image Photography, friends of the couple from Arizona, photographed their special day.

And a big thanks to our Seasons of Life Events team for all their hard work. Surrounded by family and friends, Kitchie and Tommy were truly able to relax and enjoy their wedding day. Congratulations - we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
