We are absolutely giddy to have two features in the current issue of Utterly Engaged Magazine Volume 3! But today I would like to highlight a beautiful wedding that we had the pleasure of planning, designing and doing floral design for at the Loulu Palm Estate in Hawaii! This wedding is near and dear to my heart because the bride is the sister of one of my dear photographer pals, Delbarr Moradi, and when a fellow vendor trusts you with their family's wedding, well, it's a mental note to self to make it an amazing one!
Sam and Sogol are an amazing couple who have eyes only for one another. Their smiles are as big as their hearts and when they came to me for their destination wedding, we were inspired to create a colorful wedding that shows off their fun personalities. I loved the color palette that Sogol was drawn to, which was bright and bold colors, so we set out to create a fuchsia and teal design that was accented by golds and blacks. How's that for bold?! She also loves pendant flags so we used that as a source of inspiration for the paper goods that we designed for them, as well as created pendant flags to hang in the tent that we set out at the estate. I love everything about this couple and the details that we put together for this one, so read on about this fun and fabulous fete!
Some things are blessings in disguise...such as the news of scattered rain the day before the wedding. This called for a last minute order of a clear tent for the ceremony and it really was an epic call!
We wanted to bring a little hipster fun into the escort card display so we ordered custom sunglasses with the couple's hashtag on them, affixed with their table assignments, for guests to wear throughout the day and keep as a souvenir. The guests really loved them and I love that they really wore them the entire day! This was a festive and colorful touch that was definitely one of my favorite details of the year.
We designed a tented reception at the private estate that was bursting with color and adorned the ceiling with pendant flags and bistro lights. We chose colorful fuchsia linens and paired them with gold chargers and bright flowers in gold containers. My favorite detail of the reception tables were the custom menu wraps that we created with sayings such as "love, adore, aloha, believe and hope" to grace each place setting and tucked personalized menus within each for an added personal touch. Guests loved these as there was an assortment of sayings per table and guests had a great time sharing the ones that they got!
Instead of a cake, the couple opted to have cupcakes from Hokulani Bakeshop and all I can say is, "yum"!
Love this shot of our beautiful tent all lit up under the evening Hawaii skies!
Sam and Sogol, you both are so beautiful inside and out. Thank you so much for your trust in us and for having us along to share the experience of your destination wedding in Hawaii! It was such an honor and beautiful planning journey and I hold you both so dear and close to my hearts!
