We are delighted to bring you the beautiful Diamond Head nuptials of Bucky & Brittany, captured by very on MWH Vendor, Modern Twist Photography. The couple has a history on the islands as they met six years about at the Point Loma Nazarene University Hui’o’Hawaii Club spring Luau. Brittany, a member of the Hawaii Club, was dancing the hula in the Luau and Bucky was the keyboardist in the band featured at the Luau. Brittany said she was “less than graceful at the hula, she was able to dance her way into Bucky’s heart and he played his way into hers.”
When deciding where to have the wedding, there was no question that a private property on Diamond Head Road was the perfect destination for Bucky and Brittany. Although planning from a distance in San Diego was tricky, research and organization made the planning process easier. Brittany, being a former wedding videographer, had a lot of experience with weddings so she chose quality vendors for their laid back, music themed, wedding. Bucky even gave Brittany a serenade by singing and dancing to “Fly me to the Moon” by Frank Sinatra!
Congratulations to you both!

Brooch Bouquet { Style Inspiration }

Want to dazzle your way down the aisle? Incorporate antique brooches into your bouquet! The island sun will glisten off the stones in the brooches and add to the beauty of your ensemble. This provides a new take on the “something old” tradition allowing you to intertwine family heirlooms into your special day. You can add a few  as accents, or make brooches your entire bouquet. Remeber, there is no right and wrong when it comes to trying something untraditional! Check out these great examples.

Pamela & Tyler { Real Kauai Elopement }


wedding-ring.jpg groom-suit groom shoes wedding flowers ceremony wedding-signage Kauai -elopement beach couple bride bride-mountains red bride tree-elopement We are happy to bring the beautiful pictures from Tyler and Pamela’s Kauai elopement captured by Jose Roces Photography. Talk about a history–the cute couple went to preschool together in small town Nebraska. This means they have technically known each other since they were 5 years old – in fact, they still have their preschool graduation photo where they are side by side rocking their 80′s fashion. They never dated in High School and went down very different paths upon graduation. Tyler went off to college, and Pamela joined the Army.

Fast forward ten years later, their mutual friend posted a picture of Tyler on Facebook. They reconnected and have been inseparable ever since! Eventually, Tyler moved to DC and proposed a year and a half later. They had planned on visiting Kauai as part of a family vacation, but when Tyler proposed, they decided to have their wedding in paradise so their family could witness this special occasion!

Best of Luck & come visit paradise again soon!

We are excited to bring you Jeannie & Derek’s beautiful wedding on the island of Kauai captured by Andrew Morrell Photography. When the couple arrived, they were in awe of the lush, garden-like island of Kauai. They each kicked off the weekends festivities with their bridal party. Derek and his groomsmen went for a golf outing and Jeannie and her ladies had a relaxing spa day. On the day of the ceremony, the sun, hidden behind a thin perfect veil of high clouds, provided the perfect relief from heat. Friends and family were happy to support the couple at the ceremony site to witness this special day. The reception was fitted with posh décor that resembled a dining room in a magnificent mansion. The guests gathered together at one long dining table that stretched from end to end.

Congratulations to Jeannie & Derek, best wishes for a wonderful future!
