“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.

Elim + Frank: Waimanalo Bay Wedding

Colorado-based videographer 1321 Studios Wedding Films captured the emotions, beauty and humor surrounding Elim and Frank’s Oahu destination wedding.  Love the commentary from the Studios owner, Jeff Siebert:

“Elim got in touch with us after we created Shiny & Noble’s wedding film.  Elim is great friends with Noble and Shiny and was a bridesmaid at their wedding.  We love traveling so I was thrilled when Elim got in touch with us to create her Oahu wedding film.  Elim & Frank invited us to be with them for 3 solid days and we enjoyed every minute of it.  We captured so much footage that I’m pretty sure I could have created 5 highlight videos!  We got to try out a bunch of cool new gear including an underwater camera housing to capture Elim & Frank snorkeling.  We also captured some beautiful timelapse clips that I put together into a preview film that you can watch here.  We even got to witness one of the funniest golfing expeditions that I’ve been a part of!  Elim & Frank’s Waimanalo Bay ceremony on was exceptionally gorgeous and despite the fact that it was one of the windiest weddings I’ve ever shot, I was thrilled that their vows came through loud and clear.    Planning was executed by Diana Caro-Salvador with Oahu Wedding and we enjoyed sharing Elim & Frank with Rachel Robertson of Rachel Robertson Photography.”

Lisa + Robin’s Intimate Waterfront Ceremony

Here’s a glimpse into Lisa and Robin’s darling waterfront ceremony at Moli’i Garden.  While beach weddings are very popular for destination weddings in Hawaii, there’s something to be said for intimate garden weddings.  The beauty of Lisa and Robin’s love was enhanced by serene natural elements of the sound of the wind blowing through the trees, birds chirping, and fish jumping out of the pond to catch a peek as the events unfolded.  Truly a magnificent day!
