From Dreams to Reality: A Floral Fairytale Wedding

Let’s admit it, at one point or another we’ve all daydreamed about our ideal wedding—from our wedding party, dresses and tuxedos, cake, décor, and the overall theme, the possibilities are endless. When Samantha from Floralia Hawaii approached us to help bring Mark and Mari’s vision of a whimsy bohemian wedding to life, we were thrilled.  Lavishly adorned with beautiful floral pieces and specially curated details, the entire day seemed as if it were straight out of a fairy-tale.

 
 

How cute are these invitations?! They have a stamp with their faces! These beautiful hand-made designs made by Hawaii Calligraphy were a splendid way to announce their special day to their guest.

The couple shared with Pacific Weddings that the day of their wedding happened to be on the eve of the crescent moon, which led to the inspiration of their ceremony statement piece.  Every scene from Mark & Mari’s new chapter in life together was perfectly captured by Melia Lucida.  

 
 

Every detail of the wedding was meticulously thought out—and it was well worth it! From the second guests arrived to the moment they dined, the whimsy bohemian vibes couldn’t be missed.

 
 

Our rattan bar cart was used in a slightly more unconventional way and held props for the photo booth so guests could continue making memories.  Guest could show off their fun Polaroid pictures on a string-light display.  The lounge area was a prime spot for bonding and picture taking too!

We are so glad that this love story got the happy ending it deserved and are grateful to have been apart of it! Being able to help people turn their dream weddings into a reality is one of the perks of being in the industry! Don’t forget to check out our special feature on Pacific Weddings HERE

Moody Tropical Vibes on 100 Layer Cake

When Gabriella of Love Records Collective approached me with visions of a moody, modern, tropical design, I was immediately smitten and excited about where this shoot was going. Not only is it a concept that plays off the brilliant colors we're surrounded with in Hawaii, but it's perfect for any time of the year.

The darker red satin napkins from Les Saisons makes it a perfect holiday palette too! How sexy does our hair pin table and eames chairs look in the middle of a coconut forest?! I had a blast helping curate the look and feel of this mock wedding. It was a nice refresher from the typical light and airy wedding styles we work with so often.

Pamakane of Ocean Dreamer Florals worked what I call her "freshly foraged" magic again on this one!

Our rattan coffee table worked beautifully for this modern cake by Cake Works HI... I mean, so good! Be sure to check out the whole feature on the 100 Layer Cake blog. And a huge thanks to the vendors below for creating such a dreamy day.

XOXO,
Marina
