A summer wedding at Lanikuhonua turned out to be a glorious day after morning showers threatened to put a damper on an outdoor wedding. Yes, it does rain in Hawaii even in the middle of August so always have a back up plan!
I really enjoyed the decor for Jennifer and Ryan's wedding. It was rather simple, yet quite striking due to the color scheme and large focal flowers. White was accented with bold yellow and black to give this wedding a chic and modern aesthetic.
Jennifer carried an all white bouquet of hydrangea, roses, ranunculus, and phalaenopsis orchids.
Lush arrangements set on tall black pedestals created a ceremony focal point. I just love the way the yellow pops from the black chiavari chairs!
Large yellow mums embellished each napkin and accented the water station and lounge tables. I love the playfulness of this flower! Guests dined on one long table under an all white canopy draped with sheer fabric. (This is another option for you if you are looking for a canopy but do not want to use wood or bamboo. Check out our new website, MOOD, to view the types of canopies available. )
Jennifer had a mixture of designs on her table from submerged roses or phalaenopsis orchids to full floral arrangements, along with different heights of glass vases filled with water and a floating candle. A great way to add color and dimension to the table is to wrap the vases with a band of ribbon. Create a little height by using floating candles in tall vases.
I just wanted to tell you that the design aspect of my wedding was EVERYTHING I dreamed of and more. Everything was EXACTLY to how I envisioned it and was beyond beautiful. I can tell you that every single one of my guests were amazed and their mouths dropped when they saw the layout. It was a stressful day, full of mixed emotions with the hurricane issues but once I saw the design, all the stress just seemed to disappear and I was SOOO happy! Everyone kept saying to me throughout the night, this is soooo beautiful! The ceremony decor was exactly what I wanted, displays were amazing. Honestly, they were as if you took a photo of what I was thinking in my head and made it happen.
My experience has been amazing from the start with your company. Ally has been so accommodating with all my changes and so patient to really make sure my vision was passed on to you. She always made me feel like I was a priority. Nicole as well, spending time to ensure every single item was exactly the way I wanted them to be and making suggestions to create my exact vision. I also appreciate your assistance in this busy time of the year to keep me in the loop and really make my vision a success. I know I was not the easiest of brides but I sincerely appreciate your willingness to accommodate with my last minute changes during your busy season.
I could go on and on but I will end with this simple statement.:
You made my wedding day AMAZING. My family, my new husband and I will never forget how amazingly beautiful it was and we truly appreciate you for creating our 100% PERFECT wedding day decor!
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart!
