Wow! A feature in Destination I Do! There were so many elements about this wedding that I loved… the custom dining canopies draped in gorgeous green silk, the jewel toned flowers, the installation of green orchids and crystals hanging over the dining table…. so much to love about this opulent tropical wedding!

 

Modern Hawaii was the inspiration for this intimate private dinner at the prestigious Halekulani Hotel in Waikiki.  Rich shades of burgundy and red along side bronze and gold gave this event such a warm and luxurious feel while just the right amount of foliage  introduced a tropical look without being over done.  Canopies draped in deep red silk, adding elegance to  the event, covered custom made vitrines created my  the uber talented Alex of Mood Event.

One of the most stunning venues in Hawaii is the Paul Mitchell Estate in Kailua. It’s interesting architecture, beautifully landscaped property, and to-die-for view of the most perfect beach on Oahu makes this location ideal for a wedding! Last fall we had the pleasure of designing a small wedding at Paul Mitchell Estate using vibrant tropical flowers. We combined orange, yellow, and hot pink flowers to create the bold color scheme that works so well with tropical flowers, and used intriguing tropical flowers like pin cushion protea and orchids combined with roses and calla lilies. The different shapes and textures of the flowers made striking designs!

 

We softened the look of the ceremony through soft ivory fabric.

We gave the reception a more modern feel by combining low compact floral arrangements with tall submerged arrangements. The collection of arrangements on the table is definitely a favorite of ours!

We designed this very fun and playful wedding last summer at a private estate on the North Shore of Oahu.  What made this wedding so fun and unique were the elements incorporated into the designs.  Natural elements like succulents, starfish, coral & driftwood were intertwined with florals for an organic and eclectic look, while the addition of mason jars and local flowers introduced a vintage and tropical feel to the designs.  The array of color and interesting textures made each design truly unique.  The floral colors focused on bold tropical shades of red, orange, and hot pink to contrast with the bride’s favorite shade of sea foam green, which we used for the ceremony and the reception through the fabric draping.   This wedding was quite memorable and such fun to design!

 

The ceremony canopy was created out of driftwood and accented with tropical flowers and succulents.

Each table displayed a unique design incorporating twisted grapewood, starfish, coral, succulents, and arrangements in mason jars.
