Thank you to my intern gone assistant gone wedding planner, Candace Redongo for taking care and going above and beyond for April and Jason’s wedding at Molii Gardens, Kualoa Ranch. Malia Leinau-Meyers photography rocks it with her stunning photos and quick turn around time. What a gorgeous day!
Just stop thinking about it, you won’t get to have your wedding here! It was a very special friend who loaned her home to a dear friend. We were all totally stunned and in awe of the beauty of this place. I get phone calls everyday asking to have their wedding here. It’s a private estate owned by an amazing family who is so lovely and generous. I loved this bride because she let me do my job and completely trusted me. It’s not every day I fall in love with the family either. They were very kind and took me in like I was their own. I got texts, thank you cards and gifts from all of them. I wish I could hang out with them all the time! Eddy Wong of Renai photo wowed us by his skills and design. He took amazing shots. I loved the way he took advantage of the lighting. Beaches and Backyard Catering gave our mouths a party! I’m in love with bride and flower girl shots. As theknot.com says, panoramic group photos are a hit and must have in 2012! This maid of honor speech was awesome! She relived a moment back in the day of the brides karate performance. Have you ever seen a MOH do a better job then a best man?
I adore the Queen Emma Summer Palace off the Pali Hwy on Oahu. It eludes royalty, elegance and mana (power). The tall green trees that surround the palace in all it’s splendor provides shade and noise reduction from the highway. You feel like you have taken a trip back to the days of the monarchy. The photo ops are incredible. You can offer a tour of the palace as guests arrive or during the cocktail hour. Enjoy dining rooms, bedrooms and living area set just as they were many years ago. The koa wood furniture, decor, feathers and garb are all on display for your enjoyment.
My absolute favorite Etsy designer! Aly with For Such a Time Designs does wonderful custom designs on forks, spoons, knives, etc. She creates lasting memories! I’m a huge fan of using a fork and knife set instead of or with a cake knife on your wedding day to cut your cake. Or how about eating with your “Mr” & “Mrs” fork on our wedding day. Or surprise your parents, bridal party with their initials and have them at their seat on their wedding day. We did it and our family loved it! Every time I open my cutlery drawer I am taken back to the best day of my life. Life tastes this good! Aly not only gave great customer service and got our orders in quickly with perfection, she is a sweetheart! You really feel as if each piece was made with love, devotion and passion.
I’ve already told you how much fun this couple is and was. The escort tree, the tables were named after famous buildings in their hometown of Pittsburgh. This was truly Hawaiian Tropical Elegance. How cute are their babies going to be;)
