“Moroccan Nights” Wedding

It’s a small world….even in the world of destination weddings!  Our bride Jessica enlisted our wedding planning services shortly after moving to Hawaii from Texas in 2010.  She also had a friend in Texas who was married on Oahu several months prior.  Well…..as it turned out, we planned her friend Amanda’s wedding also!  Through this connection, my first meeting with Jessica felt like hanging out with an old friend and I knew I was going to LOVE planning with her! Jessica and her groom Jared used bright, bold, jewel toned colors of the Moroccan culture as their inspiration and the result was stunning for their 20 person fete at the Coconut Club.  Loved the unique “message in a bottle” spin on the traditional guest book, and the “ring for a toast (or a kiss)” bell added an extra touch of whimsy to their evening.  Images by Ace Rainey.

Since posting Stephanie + Brad’s wedding last week, several of our bride’s have emailed requesting more pics of their set up at the Coconut Club.  Enjoy these pics of the details we designed with the couple!  Images by Kai-Photo.


Stephanie + Brad: Anela Garden and the Coconut Club

Stephanie and Brad picked not one, but two hidden gems to host their destination ceremony and reception:  Anela Garden is a quaint house-turned-wedding venue located on the slopes of Diamond Head, while the Coconut Club boasts the most amazing views of Waikiki from the 21st floor of the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel.  We love it when certain things unexpectedly fall into place on wedding day.  For this occasion, arriving at the ceremony to find bougainvillea trees in full bloom in the wedding color brought upon my “happy dance.” The other was the rain stopping the minute before the bride walked down the aisle. Stephanie and Brad raised the bar on their reception decor by enhancing the Coconut Club with specialty linen, chair covers, square monkey pod chargers, china, custom escort cards and menus, and beautiful, bright, tropical floral decor elements using roses, mokara orchids and pincushion protea.  Images by Kai-Photo.
