Real Weddings-Sayaka and Grant

Sayaka and Grant's wedding was right out of a fairytale, including the carriage ride that Grant surprised Sayaka with. Cake Lava as always created an impressive whimsical cake and the couple's cake cutting knife was...get this...a Samurai sword! How fun is that?!  Sayaka and Grant changed into traditional Japanese attire and Taiko drums livened up their reception held at the Moana Surfrider Hotel.  All images courtesy of David Murphy from Perfekt Photo.

A Barbie Dream Wedding-Via Rock n Roll Bride

I admit it! I was a little girl that dressed up Barbie in a wedding dress and veil and orchestrated a beautiful fantasy wedding to her forever love, Ken. When I first saw this "wedding" on Rock n Roll Bride I knew that I wasn't alone in my childhood obsession. I can't help but giggle when I look at these images of Barbie and Ken's wedding.

Even if you're not a Barbie fan you have to admit that the photographer did an amazing job capturing Barbie and Ken's special day :)  See more on Rock n Roll Bride

Passion Roots Open House

What fun it was to work with Passion Roots to create a whimsical and decadent open house for their new floral design studio. We wanted guests to relax and enjoy the gorgeous island surroundings while indulging with sweet temptations in a gorgeous tent, provided by Raj Polynesia, filled to the brim with yummy delights. We choose a fun color pallet of turquoise and coral and Shilhi of Passion Roots added her own chic flair with creative arrangements. I dare you not to run to the pantry to look for something sweet after perusing through the photos below!  Photos courtesy of Taryn Reid Photography.

The Descendants Movie-Filming Kick-off Party

George Clooney....need I say more? The world's most eligible bachelor is staring in a new movie The Descendants and we were there to coordinate the filming kick-off party! We worked with the director, Alexander Payne's assistant, to create a relaxed and intimate party that would kick off the filming of the movie. Timane Gardner entertained actors and directors with her ukulele virtuoso talent and cast and crew members gathered in a circle to be blessed by Kahu Kekoa. We weren't allowed to take photos once the party began but let me just say....he's gorgeous, the cast and crew were warm and friendly and the whole night was amazing.
