Blooming Love in the Concrete Jungle: Modern Wedding Inspiration at Kaka'ako Agora

Located in the heart of Honolulu, Kaka’ako is the playground for every hipster.  Although it may not seem like much at first, look a little closer and you’ll see an array of various murals along each building side amongst the warehouses.  Every mural showcases each artist’s unique personality & inspires those who see it to create their own art.  Given its modern aesthetic, it made the perfect landscape for a mid-century modern, bohemian photo shoot. Together with photo magic of Gabriella Katalin, we were able show off our creative passion at the Kaka’ako Agora. This lovely little video by Pono Grace captured all the magic of that day.

 
 

Every photo Gabriella Katalin highlighted the strengths of everyone involved and their hard work.  We’re grateful that Nouba’s’ blog took notice of this well and featured the entire thing here!

 
 

The kick-off to any amazing wedding are the invitations.  It sets the mood for your wedding before it even starts and gets guests excited for the big day ahead.  JiwaJiwa Press created the perfect invitations to do just that. Though simple, the inside of the envelope adds personality with some fun yellow and black marble designs!

 
 

Whik’d Hair and Makeup took control and ensured that both our bride and groom were picture perfect. Speaking of the bride, she looked absolutely gorgeous in her dress designed by Rue De Seine from Magnolia White Bridal Salon.

 
 

Okika Floral took care of the rest and made everything pretty by adding the vibrant colors of the floral arrangements.  We love how the palm leaves and other foliage frame our peacock chairs; or how the bright orange antheryums and orchids contrast with the simple, yet chic dining setting with copper accent details.

And don’t forget about the cake! This lovely cake perfectly accentuated our small mid-century cake table.  Sometimes less really is more!

Although it’s been a hot minute since this photoshoot, we still can’t get over how everything turned out! (We still watch the video often, it just captures the entire vibe so well!). And with 2018 slowly coming to a close, we’re excited for what the new year has in store for us!
