Words from the Vendors

From Mauis Angels Weddings:
There were actually two different locations for this fabulous event! The wedding was a private estate in Olowalu with the reception following at the Lahaina Animal Farm & Guest Ranch. It was important to the bride that the ceremony was in a different location as it was her dream to be on the oceanfront for the ceremony so that’s what we gave her.

Mauis Angels Weddings provided a customized pink lemonade/water station and the Bride envisioned a kiawe archway with small flower treatments. The flower of her choice was lavender, lavender, lavender! We even incorporated it into her custom designed Haku.

For the reception the Bride wanted a vintage, elegant, and romantic theme. Lots of lace, lavender, custom vintage place settings and candles. Of course her love for horses and entering her reception in a horse drawn carriage was also at the top of her wish list, so what better setting than the Lahaina Animal Farm & Guest Ranch.

Being that the brides side of the family all flew in from Japan, where Josh and Momoko both reside, we had a Japanese translator on hand throughout the event to translate. Josh’s childhood friend conducted the ceremony.

Other miscellaneous details were the action stations that were created to display the food. It was important to the Bride and Groom that everyone enjoy in good conversation and spend intimate time together so setting the stage with action stations allowed just that.

A New York Winter Wedding

New York Wedding

Jim and Adrianna fell in love during a snowy winter in New York five years ago! Because of this they wanted a wedding that reflected the wintery romance and warmth you can feel in New York City, even during the coldest days of the year.

To achieve this cozy and romantic feel they chose to host their wedding at the gorgeous Bowery Hotel for their closest family and friends. Curl up, get warm, and peruse the full gallery of a new york winter wedding here, captured by Caroline Frost.

Words from The bride

My best advice for future brides: Invest more in making yourself happy than in making yourself beautiful. Although there is so much focus on how you’ll look on your wedding day, how you feel is so much more important. Don’t spend precious moments getting hair and makeup touch ups when you can be hugging your parents and friends or smooching your beloved. It was drizzling on our wedding day and against the advice of our families we snuck outside for a few photos in the mist. Those moments on the street are my favorite pictures from our wedding day. They captured the spirit of how we felt in our favorite city…among busy streets and uncertain weather, there is a feeling of promise like anything is possible. These were the streets where we fell in love and that sentiment was alive and well on our wedding day. So worth the flyways and frizz that came with it.

The dance floor was full the entire evening with a spirited and fun-loving group. Guests clapped when we danced our first dance to “Ho Hey” by the Lumineers with an extra shout from the crowd when the band sang “I’d be standin’ on Canal, and Bowery. And she’d be standin’ next to me.”

We loved the setting because it felt elegant without being uptight and we knew the warm space would set the perfect tone for a party that reflected our closeness and the love we have for everyone that would be there celebrating with us that night. During the evening guests drank the “The Holy Matrigroni” an homage to our favorite cocktail, the Negroni, and were seated at tables named after all the locations where we have lived during our lives.

Words from the Vendors

From Rachelle Photography:
I love the reaction of Janine and Ty’s “First Look” – such a happy couple and so full of love and respect for each other. After taking the majority of photos prior to the ceremony, and moving about the grounds of Park Winters guests started to arrive and the sweet, sentimental ceremony – set up in the round – with family and friends encircling the couple, was performed by the bride’s aunt.

For the ceremony they really wanted all the guests to be as close as possible and more intimate. The Florist, Philip Rice, customized a “round” for them to stand with flowers surrounding and the guest to surround them in a circle.

A fantastic family style dinner was held in the gardens, with the vibrant color palette of orange, peach, and yellows with a mixture of “metals,” all laid out on a combination of linen covered round tables or long rich wood Harvest Tables.

Janine and Ty both love to cook and experiment with new food. It was a top priority to have the best food and desserts for the guests. Late night snacks and a well supplied cigar and scotch bar complimented the evening. And to end this perfect event… sparklers.
