Congratulations Greg and Sandy! Halekoa Hotel, Oahu, Hawaii ~ 7.12.12

I loved Sandy from the moment I first spoke with her on the phone.  She was so sweet and genuine and will be one of our dearest friends for a long time! It was a complete pleasure and honor to coordinate and design her wedding and the day couldn’t have turned out more beautiful.

Sandy and Greg tied the knot exactly a week ago today at the Halekoa Hotel in Waikiki ~ Oahu, Hawaii.  I always do a blog post on our brides special day and this one was especially sweet because we were with Sandy from day one … before she even choose the venue.  To see everything come together and the love shine between Sandy and Greg when their big day finally arrived was something we will never forget!

Of course we couldn’t have done it without the help of an entourage of very amazing vendors.  Charline and Danny at the Halekoa were the best, completely helpful and always on top of everything.  With all the outdoor weddings we’ve been doing lately, Erika and I had forgotten just how wonderful a great hotel staff can be ~ We really do appreciate everything you have done for Sandy:) Todd from Always Flowers ~ WOW! Is really all I can say.  The ceremony gazebo with all the jewels, the centerpieces, the floral head pieces and omg – the bouquet! You are so amazing and we can’t wait to work with you again! Todd does the best Hawaii Wedding Flowers~ seriously! If you are looking for a florist, you have to check him out. Matt and the crew from Mystical Sound DJs and Production, you guys were so easy to work with and had the entire crowd on the dance floor – it was a pleasure!  Cathy and the Te Vai Ura Nui tahitian dancers and musicians, we couldn’t believe the show you put on.  This was really such a treat for all the out of town guests… we will definitely be calling you again, the entire experience you created with your show was nothing short of extraordinary! Te Vai Ura Nui is without question the best of Tahitian and hula here on O’ahu! Keoni from KPix Hawaii thank you so much for a wonderful job! We loved how you were able to take charge of the group and we can’t wait to see your shots! Cynthia Smoot from Mrs Minister was Sandy and Gregs officiant, and she was  so sweet and held a very sentimental and beautiful ceremony that had many of the guests in tears:) Thanks Cynthia!  The cake…  OH the CAKE!  It was amazeballs! Just scroll down and check out the photos!  I can’t even put into words how beautiful it was!  Paradise Pastries really blew this one out of the park ~ Talk about making a big impression!  And last but not least, Gemina from Faith and Beauty.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen Sandy look more beautiful.. You did a spectacular job ~ but again, you always do! Thanks Gemina!

A huge Mahalo to all of you who helped us make Sandy and Gregs day so wonderful! And to all the family and friends who helped as well~ We really appreciate it and it was such a pleasure to meet all of you!  Thank you for making us feel like family:)

A big hug & Congrats to Sandy and Greg!♥  It is obvious how in Love you are and you both deserved this so much!  I couldn’t imagine a more perfect day for both of you.  We love you both ~ Nicole & Erika (Best Day Ever, Hawaii Wedding Planners)
