Bridal Fashion and Wedding Trends

Clothing designer Deena Tearney invited me to join her for her latest podcast as she shared a little of her bridal clothing line. We talked about destination bridal clothing and about trends I've seen in the weddings. You can see more of her line on the Umee Honolulu website.

Real Weddings-Akiko and George

Many of the weddings we coordinate are for couples who live in all parts of the United States and all around the world.  Akiko and George currently live in Vietnam so all of our planning was done by Skype and e-mail.  Our first task was venue research.  Being that they wanted an elegant country look and feel, they chose beautiful Sunset Ranch for their venue.  Their ceremony was held next to a pond overlooking the Pacific Ocean vista and their reception under a tent next to a giant Eucalyptus tree on the venues sprawling property.

Guest enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and played lawn games during the cocktail hour.  Mason jars filled with green and white flowers by Easley Designs sat atop burlap table runners created by the Seasons of Life Events team.  Dinner, served by Beaches and Backyards Catering, was all about comfort food with a Pacific Island twist – among many delicious offerings there were mini Kalua pork sliders and sweet potato fries served in paper cones.  A Cake Life created a beautiful and delicious cupcake tower that we placed in the center of a table full of brown and yellow candy.   Many thanks for Kaua Wedding Photography for these gorgeous photos.
