You've Got Me Hooked: A Wedding Wish Come True at the Kahaluu Fish Pond

Though there’s plenty of fish in the sea, not every one is meant to be together. That’s why when you do find someone who’s meant for you, remember hold on tight and never let them go. Being in the industry, we’re fortunate enough to be invited to share some of the most special moments with our clients. It always melts our hearts to see couples like Lauren & Mark who are head-over-heels smitten for one another. Created and designed by yours truly, seeing everything come together after months of planning really had me feeling grateful for this Hawaiian life I get to live. After seeing all of the beautiful moments from that night, you’ll understand why we’re so caught up on it!

 
 

Even after the day has passed, June Conchran has us swooning all over again with every amazing photo she’s taken.

Work never feels like work if you’re doing what you love and collaborating alongside some of your favorite people.  Pacific Party Rentals & Accel Rentals ensured that every guest’s dining experience was one to remember.

 
 
 
 

As usual, Passion Roots worked her magic and provided the florals. She even managed to glam up our large rattan pendant lanterns! They’ve never looked better! The Farmer’s Daughter team installed it all to display for everyone!

 
 

And featuring what we do best, we created a cozy little lounge for the special day. We decided to go with a modern-bohemian design featuring both of our peacock chairs and white rattan sofas.

Inspired by a wish lantern festival that they were invite to on the Irrawaddy River in Mayanmar, the couple wanted to have a one of their own to share with their guests.  Instead typical paper lanterns, the couple got creative and used coconut shells to carry the wishes instead.  The lanterns symbolized good luck and letting go of one’s worries and were released on the Kahaluu Fishpond during the night.

To those of you who have already found their special someone— congrats! For those of you who are still out there fishing— just remember, patience is a virtue! Once you’ve found your person and are ready to start planning your big day—don’t forget to reach out to us! We’d LOVE to help make all your wishes come true! Happy Aloha Friday!

xoxo,

Marina
