Day Long . Tropical . Lovefest

One of the best perks of being a wedding planner is becoming friends with all the wonderful vendors I work with. The story about how I met this adorable couple is a long one, but ultimately I became friends with the bride when she and I began working together. For me it was huge when they decided they had to hire me to coordinate their super non-traditional, day long love fest. From the beginning they were clear that they wanted it to feel like a slightly jazzed up version of how they typically spend time with their family and friends. The day started with the most beautiful and emotional ceremony I have ever seen. The guests gathered around the couple as they read their personalized vows. Literally everyone was sobbing tears of happiness and joy for them (including my whole team). After the ceremony, all the guests headed down to the beach for bloody marys, musubi and hand rolls. After all the guests had a chance to take a siesta and freshen up everyone headed down the street to the reception. We designed the reception to be a casual boho lounge. While the guests sipped cocktails and swung in hammocks, the caterers grilled kabobs over an open fire pit. Between the early impromptu dancing, the most heart warming toasts and the tastiest rice crispy treats known to man, the reception was a hit! This wedding truly lived up to what Love Letter Weddings strives to accomplish with every event. It was unique, it was extremely sentimental and most important, it was a true reflection of these two beautiful people.

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!!

As much as we love all of our clients, we have a soft spot for the ones who tell us to run with whatever design ideas we envision for them. This was the case with this couple. The bride, a self proclaimed anti-bride, gave us a list of things that were important to her; the food, looking awesome on her wedding day, and having an impressive dessert bar. After spending weeks hunting for a beach front venue, the couple fell in love with Waimea Valley. Although it was not the beach front venue they had originally envisioned for their wedding backdrop, they felt it would still give their guests the tropical Hawaiian experience they were going for. As the exclusive caterer for Waimea Valley, Ke Nui Kitchen created a one of a kind menu that combined the bride's love of Italian food with the groom's love of local Hawaiian food. To create the perfect elegant vintage feel with the decor, we arranged a variety of flowers in the bride's favorite color, purple. The mix of lavender with dark plum really popped in the green surroundings of the valley. We accented the tables will custom made wood table numbers and lots of soft candle light. Instead of a typical wedding cake, the bride opted for a dessert bar. To give the desserts another level of interest, we made a dozen crystal cake stands using found pieces from thrift stores. Between the cake stands and the impressive line up of cheesecakes, cookies, fresh berries, and mini tiramisu the dessert bar looked like a million bucks! All the guests couldn't help but try at least four desserts each.
