Dway & Travis – A Hawaii Love Story

I have had the privilege of knowing Dwaynette & Travis for quite some time. They are an charming couple who are clearly each others soul mates, perfect for each other in every way. It is a rare thing really, to find a couple who can crack each other up the way Dway and Travis can, it’s like just a glance sometimes and they’re on the ground rolling in laughter – the both of them.  They have been through a lot together – and I have seen Travis hold back Dway’s hair after a night of partying too hard and I have seen Dway take care of Travis in more ways than one. It is undeniable however, that together there is a wonderful and amazing love story, one that has taken years to blossom, and that is still in fact, still growing – beautifully and in gods perfectionI’m super excited to share with you a few pics from their engagement shot taken by a wonderful and talented Hawaii Photographer – Bianca Photography. If you don’t have a wedding photographer yet, Bianca’s work is pretty amazing. You can check out more of Bianca & her team’s work at her website – http://www.biancaphotography.com/

Bridesmaids’ Dresses

The past has seen some really dreadful bridemaids’ dresses. Just watch “27 Dresses” starring Katherine Heigl. Of course the dresses were a bit exaggerated, but some were really not that far from reality. Check out some of the dresses she wore, in case you forgot or never saw the movie:

I believe we are far past the era of uniformed, less-flattering bridesmaids’ dresses. Why not changes things up?

Reason #1: Chances are, your bridesmaids’ will not have the same body type, so why try and fit them all into the same dress. Even if you all were sisters, your bodies will still be different. Case in point, the Kardashian sisters = different.

Reason #2: It’s a great way to add a pop of color and texture to your bridal portraits.

Reason #3: Pretty compliments beauty. Less-than flattering does not.You want your bridal party to feel comfortable and confident in their dresses. Going back to reason #1; when the dresses fit better, your girls will feel more comfortable, more confident, they’ll have more fun at your wedding!

Reason #4: You want your bridal party to feel comfortable and confident in their dresses. Going back to reason #1; when the dresses fit better, your girls will feel more comfortable, more confident, they’ll have more fun at your wedding! You’re happy, they’re happy, everyone’s happy.

Check out these bridesmaids. Don’t you just love the variety, pop of color and the different textures?! Definite thumbs up!

Even the guys are in the spirit of variety. How adorable are the little boys’ socks?

There’s a slight variation in the dresses, but what I love about this is that each bridesmaid is wearing a different shoe, different colors.

A Blast from the Past

The other day I was just going over ideas for a baby’s first birthday celebration. I’ve forgotten about this idea, but remembered it when thinking back to my own daughter’s first birthday. At her party, we laid out sheets of cardstock, at least one per guest, and pens on each table. We asked each guest to write something addressed to our daughter, anything from a little message, current events, to words of wisdom. The younger kids, of course, were asked to draw pictures. We informed our guests that their messages would become pages in a book that will be stored in a box along with other keepsakes from the first birthday celebration, a sort of time capsule. We’ve got a little over ten more years before we hand over this book to our daughter on her 16th birthday. It’ll be interesting to find out what people actually wrote!

A Kalalau Engagement

Is it weird that I’m posting pictures of myself on our blog?  I don’t care, I love “L O V E” love them.. Hope you will enjoy too.  Here’s Kenji & my engagement shoot.  To make the story even cuter – we got engaged in this very spot just a few months prior to the shoot.  It’s our absolute favorite place. It’s a 12 mile hike in, and out.. so hiking in make-up and getting pretty for the shoot wasn’t easy, but Shinji did an amazing job! More on our photographer (my fiances brother) to come….
