Moody . Tropical . Dance Party

The first time I ever chatted with this darling bride, I was so nervous. I had never had another wedding planner consider me for their wedding day and I knew if I got this job, it would be the ultimate compliment! Needless to say, I got the job and I am so glad I did. Not only was it a huge compliment, but this couple was a dream to work with. The bride's vision for this wedding was so much fun. The overall look was a blend of burgundies, ivory, lush greenery and gold pineapples. I had the pleasure of designing the florals and they turned out to be some of my all time favorites. The ceremony took place on Secret Island which the guests accessed by a private catamaran ride. Dinner began with a gorgeous cheese board at each table. The brides father hand crafted each cutting board which were later gifted to the wedding party. After dinner, guests danced the night away only to take momentary breaks for the gelato that was served instead of wedding cake. My only regret with this wedding is that I didn't get to work with this couple longer!

STUNNING . TROPICAL . SOIREE

This wedding was one of our most anticipated events of the year at Love Letter Weddings. Not only did we have a stellar line up of vendors involved, but the lovely couple had the most amazing taste in - well everything! Some of our favorite parts were making the 'find your party animal' escort card display, the epic ombre aisle petals, the tattoo bar, and the impromptu wagon wheel love circle on the dance floor at the end of the night! Not only was everything beautiful, but all the family and guests were a blast. We had so much being a part of this very special day!!

ROMANTIC . VIBRANT . DANCE PARTY

Over the years, I have been very lucky to have made many new friends out of my clients. This bride surpassed that. I would go so far as to say she is like a sister to me! From the very beginning I know that she and I had so much in common! This made the design process so much fun. There is nothing better than a client who loves all your design ideas. For this wedding, we went to town with the rustic wood, romantic bohemian flowers, amazing and beautiful food and tons of gold accents to honor the couple's new last name "Golden." Not only was the bride a pleasure, but the groom, both sides of the family and all their friends were the most fun loving and appreciative guests. Checking this wedding off the list was so bitter sweet!

GREEN . WHIMSICAL . LOVE FEST

It is not every day that I get to work with clients who share my eclectic and bohemian style. It was so much fun to challenge the traditional with every part of this wedding. The couple chose Waimea Valley as their venue for the lush botanical gardens and their dedication to keeping the grounds a nature preserve. They worked with the on-site caterer to create a menu that featured all local and organic ingredients. The bride wanted to include as many had crafted elements as possible. All of the couple's friends and family (and us at Love Letter Weddings) pitched in to make the invitations, photo booth, centerpieces, escort cards, signage and bunting. My all time favorite was the toy animals the bride collected and spray painted gold for the guest favors. Each one had a satchel tied to its back with local Hawaiian candies inside. She told me that she wanted her guests to leave laughing. Between the DIY decorations and the musical talent of so many of the couple's friends you could truly feel the love in the air all night long!

FUN . MODERN . FOODIE

This destination wedding was the ultimate vision of an amazingly sweet and creative blogger bride. We spend over a year planning this wedding via email. She wanted to make sure that her guests flying in from all over the world had a blast. Yellow, white and pops of strawberry red were incorporated into all the décor. We had a beautiful lounge set up with hand sewn pillows, a kids station with water balloons and coloring books, and Hawaiian inspired photo booth with the beach as a natural backdrop. Guests were serenaded by a local duo, wowed with gourmet food stations, and surprised after sunset with Polynesian drummers and fire dancers. Hand crafted details were incorporated via signage, the table décor and the flowers. The bride even designed and assembled her own bouquet. The most heartwarming part was that no one wanted to leave at the end of the night!
