Brittany + Chris’s North Shore Hawaii Beach Wedding

Brittany & Chris enjoyed a beautiful Hawaii Beach Wedding on the North Shore of O’ahu at Papailoa Beach last week Monday, September 15, 2014.  A small and intimate ceremony was attended by just a few of Brittany and Chris’s closest family and friends.  Brittany looked gorgeous and her bright purple bouquet complimented her perfectly.  Chris was quite dashing as well!  The sunset reflecting reds and oranges on the sand, ocean and mountains framed an amazing moment and we felt honored to be a part of it!  Congratulations to you both and Cheers to your Best Day Ever!

As a special surprise I also put together a little video of your “Best Day Ever”.  Hope you like it! 🙂

Ikuyo and Shane’s Best Day Ever! A Beautiful Hawaii Paradise Cove Beach Wedding

Ikuyo and Shane celebrated their Hawaii Wedding at Paradise Cove Beach, in Ko’olina on April 16th, 2014.  It was a sweet and simple ceremony that brought many, including us, to tears.  The bride and groom said “I do” in front of their closest friends and family and then celebrated their “Best Day Ever” at a traditional Hawaiian Luau afterwards, complete with fire dancing and wedding cake!

Shane & Ikuyo, it was a pleasure getting to know both of you and we were honored to be a part of such a special day! Ikuyo, your dad, singing the Hawaiian Wedding Song with Henry while you and Shane danced, was something I will never forget and whenever I see it it makes me smile. 🙂  I’ve added the video here below for you to see as well.  It was taken with my iphone, but is still such a beautiful moment!

A big mahalo to all of our vendors!

Aaron and Janell’s Best Day Ever!

On March 2nd, 2013, a very special couple, Janell & Aaron, tied the knot at Anela Gardens in front of their closest family and friends.  The reception party was held soon after the ceremony at the Hyatt Regency.  It was a disney fairytale to remember, and something that will go down in the books as one of the “Best Day’s Ever ~ of all time ! ”

I realize this post is more than a bit overdue, so I apologize for the delay, I’m usually really quick with these posts, but it’s been a busy catch-up month…  In any case, I could not put off this post any longer, and going through all the pics one more time brought me right back to that magical day.

There is no question these two are the perfect fairytale.  From the ultra-romantic proposal – to the fabulous disney castle cake – to the sparkle you can just see between them when they glance at each other.  Janell and Aaron, we were so honored to be a part of your special day and we hope it was everything you imagined and more!  Congratulations to you both and Cheers to your “Best Day Ever!”

Congratulations Kristen + Neal! Not even a Tsunami could stop this Magical Ko’olina Hawaii Wedding ~ 10-27-12

On Saturday, October 27, 2012, Kristen + Neal tied the knot at the Ihilani, Ko’olina Resort in front of their closest friends and family. The weather was perfect and their was a feelling of Love in the air.  Yup, it was just one of those special days when you know something magical is going to happen:)

We had gotten to know Neal + Kristen pretty well over the past few months and have grown to feel quite close to them.  If I had to describe the two of them, I’d have to say in a nutshell, “They are completely perfect for each other in every way from the way they are always holding hands, to the way they call each other “honey”, to the way they just look at each other and you know – these two are ment to be.”  Erika, Kelli + I truely felt honored to be a part of Kristen + Neal’s very special day. Even with the Tsunami, this wedding felt perfect, in every way!

We just wanted to share a few pics from their special day with all of you… But before the pictures.. A Big MAHALO to everyone who helped make Neal + Kristen’s day such a Success!  Especially to Geri, the director of events at the Ihilani, Mariott hotel, Ko’olina.  It was a joy to work with you, thank you so much for all of your help:).  To the entire catering and wait staff at Ko’olina, for executing a flawless event and for notifying us of the early tsunami warning.  We can’t thank you enough for all of your help ensuring that Neal + Kristen got to enjoy their “Best Day Ever” even under the unforeseen circumstances.  To all of the staff at the Ihilani Spa ~ did an amazing job with the bridal parties hair and make-up!  All the girls looked so beautiful!  Especially bride ~ Kristen!

To Raymond Donato ~ as always, you are amazing! It was the first ceremony we have seen Raymond perform, but he was awesome. Which of course we totally expected.  You are one of our favorite people, and we can’t wait to work with you again soon!

To The Patisserie and Kristie, for a gorgeous and delicious cake! The cherry blossom design looked amazing under the purple light & with the glowing cake topper Kristen bought!

To Jill and the wonderful team at Easley Designs for the beautiful flower arrangements at the ceremony and reception!  Additionally, your two large vase designs also made about 20 seniors extra happy the following week (with our Hawaii Wedding senior care home flower donation programShare the Aloha), so thank you for that as well!

Specialty linen, chair covers, sashes, pipe and drapes were done by It’s So Pretty Linens & Decor.  Jazz, you were so easy to work with, and you did a fabulous job on the set up!  The ballroom looked gorgeous!

Also to deejay Wilson at Audio Zone who totally set the mood for the entire night handling all of the music, deejaying, adding fun uplighting with a monogram and assisting with the slideshow.  As always ~ it was a joy to work with you !!

Also, Neal and Kristen generously donated two 7 ft. arrangements to our Share the Aloha – Senior Care Home / Wedding Flower Donation Program… so I spent about 3 hours rearranging the florals into smaller arrangements for a few lucky seniors at Pearl City Nursing home, Island Nursing Home and Hale Nohea.  Deliveries were made promptly the next few days so that the flowers stayed fresh.

It was truely an amazing experience seeing Neal + Kristen’s flowers come full circle.  I think I almost cried at the first place, seeing how happy Doris was with the lilies she could not believe a bride who didn’t even know her would want her to have 🙂  Awwww!  Big smiles all around.  Here are a few pics:ihilani koolina, ihilani koolina wedding, hawaii wedding, oahu wedding, kristen and neal, best day ever hawaii

If you have wedding flowers you would like to donate, please send us an email – dropaline@bestdayeverhawaii.com.  We will handle all of the upkeep, pick up and drop off – and of course, it’s free!  For more info. click here.

Congratulations Neal + Kristen!  We hope you had a magical honeymoon in New Zealand and can’t wait to see photos!  We wish you the best in your new life as Mr. & Mrs. Neal Jensen!

A Destination Wedding Come True! Congratulations Jason & Bianca! 8.03.12

Jason and Bianca tied the knot on the east coast of the beautiful island of Oahu at Waimanalo Bay Beach Park this past Friday!  It was a gorgeous day with light winds and just the right amount of sun. Turquoise waters surrounded the us and sunshine peaked through at the most perfect moments.  Although it was our first time meeting Bianca and Jason in person, with all the planning and talk of their wedding going on for the past few months, we felt as though we had known them forever.

We arrived on site about 2hrs early to pick up all the flowers and set the ceremony up.  We made sure to put signage up and balloons so that guests would know where to go.  We had to clear a few people out of the way, to make some space for the ceremony, but nobody minded, everybody knows how important a wedding day is!  Soon Kahu Bruce, the officiant arrived and our ukulele player Mike Izon.  The four of us (Kahu, Mike, Erika & I) waited patiently for the rest of the party and bride and groom to arrive. All the planning and preparation was coming together ~ how very exciting!!

When the wedding bus finally arrived we had Kahu go over the ceremony with the guests and soon the most beautiful bride I have ever seen made her way down the isle.  Bianca and Jason had a very traditional Hawaiian ceremony that was also very personalized and heartfelt.  We felt honored to be a part of it & I will admit to tearing up a little bit when I saw Bianca tearing up..  It is obvious how much you two love each other and we do hope your beach wedding was everything you had imagined and more:) We wish you both an amazing rest of your Hawaiian vacation and do hope you and your family enjoyed the ceremony festivities as much as we did.  Cheers to your Best Day Ever!

Thank YOU >> A special thanks to Kahu Bruce.  The ceremony was perfect! Thank you for helping us make Bianca and Jason’s day so special!  Also to Mike Izon, the background ukulele music really helped to set the mood.  And your purple shirt matched perfectly:) To Todd of Always Flowers – Seriously amazing – everything you, do all the time, Please thank Aunty for us too!  The petals, as you can see really made Biancas day amazing!  And last but not least – our favorite hawaii wedding photographerShannon! Love working with you:) Can’t wait to see the photos! Thank you all ~ We could not have done it without you! And again ~

 

Congrats to the lovely newlyweds Jason & Bianca!
