Travis + Tiffany’s Elegant Destination Affair!

They say, “It takes a village,” and with a list of over 20 vendors Tiffany and Travis “wowed” their guests with endless wedding decor eye-candy!  Their wedding sparkled with details…Tiffany’s crystal garland bouquet, crystals in every orchid in the centerpieces, special brooch napkin embellishments, truffles that sparkled so much you didn’t know they were edible, and hand-embellished menus, gift bags and escort cards, their guests were treated to surprise after surprise!  Tiffany’s dress was a stunner, but for once the groom had a wardrobe change – from a pale pink bow tie and vest for the ceremony, to a fuchsia, rhinestone studded vest, pocket square and bow tie for the reception.  LOVE!  Photos by Muse.

Erin + Vetric: Hilton Hawaiian Village

A seaside dream….beautiful decor in shades of taupe, champagne, ivory and pale pink enveloped Erin and Vetric on their beautiful wedding day at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.  I remember the very first phone call I received from Erin and the way she was full of excitement as she shared her wedding plans with me.  Soon after, Vetric flew to Honolulu to begin wedding planning sans his bride-to-be, with his focus and commitment in finding their perfect venue.  Funny little story here…..I was in the middle of running Nancy and Rob’s wedding at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.  I had stepped out of the reception room to check on the bride in her hotel room.  When I returned, my staff notified me that there was a gentleman doing a site visit in the room.  I thought to myself, “Ok, cool!”  Well, little did I know that Vetric was that groom!  I had previously set up a meeting with him for the following day, and when we finally met, he mentioned that he saw one of the rooms at the Hilton the day prior.  Well, the rest is history….Rebecca Arthurs captured the commencement of the months of planning that Erin and Vetric dedicated to their wedding day so beautifully (we were their “Day of” coordinators).  I absolutely loved their wedding style and their dramatic romantic photos!

Nicole + Tyler: Lanikuhonua

Today we feature Nicole and Tyler’s wedding at Lanikuhonua Phase 2.  Aside from loving this uber-cool and down-to-earth couple, this wedding held two of my other loves….phalaenopsis orchids and the color magenta.  I knew from planning meetings and emails that this would be a spirited couple, but what I didn’t know was that the entire wedding party would be the same.  We laughed non-stop throughout the day and photographers Aric and Angie of Aric Becker Photography were on hand to capture every moment of it.  This has got to be the reason I love destination weddings so much….the smaller guest count usually means that the guests know each other well, so attending a destination wedding is like going on vacation with your closest family and friends.  Being the wedding planner for these weddings means that I get to witness the FUN first hand.

Nicole and Tyler were married on what felt like one of the hottest, sunniest days at Lanikuhonua, so the surprise shave ice truck was a welcome treat for their guests.  Guests later retreated to the Coconut Club for a casual and relaxed reception.
