Bill and Emily’s Best Day Ever!

Bill and Emily were probably the sweetest couple I have met in quite a while.  We had been working with them for several months prior to their ceremony and over that time I feel we have gotten to know the couple pretty well.  They are the best 🙂 and I could not imagine a couple more perfect for each other than Bill and Emily.

Bill and Emily decided to come to Hawaii to tie the knot totally on their own, with no guests or family, just a completely ultra romantic and intimate ceremony with just the two of them.  We helped them find a photographer, videographer and florist and handled all of the other “wedding details” so that when they finally arrived on O’ahu they could just enjoy their time together surfing, and exploring the island having the times of their lives.  And that is just what they did!

When their special day finally arrived, Bill and Emily drove themselves over to Makapu’u Beach where we had everything set up and ready for them.  Unfortunately they got a bit lost on the way over and even got pulled over by a cop, but that didn’t stop them from having a ceremony that was seriously, very close to the sweetest ceremony I have ever witnessed.  They even had me tearing up!

Bill & Emily ~ We just wanted to thank you both for letting us be a part of your special day. It was an honor to share such an intimate moment with you and we are so excited for the both of you!  We wish you the best life ever together and hope you did indeed have your “Best Day Ever!

Congratulations Bill and Emily!!!

Also, a Big Mahalo to all of our Vendors!

Paul and Julie’s Best Day Ever!

Paul and Julie tied the knot on April 30, 2013 at Paradise Cove Beach in front of their closest friends and family.  It was a semi-cloudy but beautiful day on the west shore of O’ahu and I couldn’t imagine a more perfect ceremony for Julie and Paul. Romantic, intimate and gorgeous, this day was truly something we will remember forever and we felt it was an honor to be a part of such a special and intimate moment for two very wonderful people.

Sending out a Big Congratulations to Paul and Julie!  We are so happy for you and wish you both a lifetime of love and joy together!  Thank you for trusting us with your special day and cheers to your “Best Day Ever!

Thank You to all of our Vendors!

Congratulations Dane & Bel!

Belinda and Dane, one of the loveliest Australian couples I have ever met, contacted me about a year ago to help them plan their dream Hawaii wedding. Since they were so far away, it was impossible for them to pull all the details together on their own and they needed someone on island who they could trust.  Best Day Ever came to the rescue!

I loved every moment of working with Bel and Dane, from helping them find the perfect venue and venndors to helping the groom find a musician to learn and play Bel’s favorite song (the Forrest Gump “Feather Song”) as a special surprise to her on her wedding day. It was obvious how much these two loved each other and I could not be happier for the both of them today.

Belinda and Dane got married on April 30th 2013 at the Halekulani Hotel in Waikiki in front of their closest friends and family.  Everyone flew in for this special occasion and everyone was here for a good time! Debbie Hemingway did amazing beachy-chic decor throughout the ceremony and reception dinner site and everything from the cake to the starfish and personalized Hawaiian luggage tag favors fit perfectly with Belindas beachy blue theme.

Dane and Bel, we could not be more thrilled for the both of you! It was an honor to be a part of your special day. I sincerely loved every minute of working with you. You both were the kindest and sweetest couple ever and we wish you nothing less than your “Best first year of Marriage Ever!” 🙂

A Mothers Day Tribute : How to honor your mother (and father) at your wedding

Weddings can get so crazy sometimes we forget what they’re really all about.  So why do we have a wedding? Of course the explanations are endless, but heres how I would explain it in a nutshell, a wedding is the celebration of two wonderful people deciding that they’re so perfect for each other and so in love that they can’t live without each other and they have willingly made the decision to spend the rest of their lives together. And that ~ is kind of a big deal! Don’t you think? 🙂

But there’s more, its also about the joining together of two families. Two sets of parents, two sets of siblings, two sets of grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts and uncles.  Weddings are especially sentimental to mothers, so today, on this very special Mothers Day, lets talk about a few special ways to honor your mom at your wedding.

3 Simple Sentimental Ways to honor your Mom (and dad) at your Wedding 

 

1. Do a Bouquet Presentation and a little Special Thank You Speech just for mom. Dad’s get the first dance, but what do mom’s get? Unfortunately this is a tradition we’ll have to incorporate ourselves.  One great idea which we have offered to our brides is to dedicate their bouquet to mom. Sometimes this is also done to grandma, or both. Before presenting the bouquet, give a little speech saying why mom is so special to you. It would also be nice to include a few memories or moments spent with mom that stand out to you. This little gesture will mean the world to her, trust me, most moms end up crying after this.  They save the bouquet and end up telling all their friends about it.  You are their pride and joy and honoring them in this way is something they will never forget.

2. Wear Something of Moms to your Wedding.  Is her 1960’s wedding dress suddenly back in style, perhaps with a little altering? Or maybe you could wear that pearl necklace her mother gave her that you know means the world to her? Even if it’s just something small, these little things mean the world to mom and often times your wedding day is just as important to her as her wedding day was.  Show mom a little love and let her know you’re thinking about her by incorporating something of hers into your outfit and she’ll love it.

3. Frame your Parents Wedding Photos and Display them at your wedding.  This is the sweetest way to show mom that you are thinking of her. Dad will love it too.  This can also be done for grandparents. A simple way to show your nearest and dearest that today is their special day too.hawaii wedding, oahu wedding, hawaii prince hotel, hawaii prince hotel wedding, andrea and brian, best day ever hawaii

 

Wishing all of you brides who are mothers, and brides who are now thinking of ways to honor their mothers on their special day a Very Happy Mothers Day!   I hope you got some good ideas out of this post and in honor of my mom today, I posted our picture up top 🙂

Wishing you all the Best Day Ever !
Happy Sunday everyone !

Suit Vests, a new Wedding Trend?

The majority of my style tips have been for our lovely brides but don’t worry grooms this next one is for you!!  I wanted to share this style idea I have been loving for beach weddings -the suit vest!

In an outdoor setting, a suit jacket can be a little warm and uncomfortable, especially in Hawaii.  Omitting the jacket and wearing a simple vest over a collared shirt maintains just the right amount of sophistication. This style will keep grooms cool, comfortable and polished!

We’d love to hear what our brides AND grooms think!!  Let us know if you would rock this style!

Happy Saturday everyone! 🙂
