Self Professed “Simple Girl”

From Moana Events: Meaghan, the bride, also happens to be our Director of Events for Moana Events. As much fun as she has planning the gorgeous and often elaborate weddings of our beautiful clients, she is very much a self-professed “simple girl”. All her and Zan wanted for their special day was to be surrounded by the people they love most, with a few of their favorite things sprinkled in!

A Special Venue

Zan’s family history in Hawaii goes back 5 generations, when his ancestors travelled to the islands as missionaries in the 19th century. They lived in the houses which have now been converted into a historical landmark and museum. It was the perfect venue for their dream “backyard” wedding.

Coffee + Brunch

They decided on a brunch wedding, not only because it was budget friendly, it also just fit their “style”. Guests sipped mimosas while playing lawn games. There was a coffee bar with all of the necessary “trimmings” (the couple are HUGE coffee lovers).

The menu consisted of a variety of their favorite breakfast treats including mini pancakes and sugar glazed bacon. And they thanked their guests with a doughnut bar.

Ever wondered what it would look like if a mermaid and an ice princess joined forces? We imagine it would look exactly like this gorgeous blue beach destination wedding inspirational wedding shoot does.

The smooth noise of the ocean, the salty air, the dignified sand between your toes…. A dream shoot at the sea, even in Niedersachsen, Germany, can become a reality for your wedding! Indulge yourself on more of the details in the full gallery here, captured by Anja Schneemann.

What flowers to use:

Appropriated to the dress and the suit, the bouquet was made out of gentle, cool pastel colors. Fresh, blue hydrangea, floribunda, white gypsophila, elegant peony, and smokey, blue-green echevria compliments the eucalyptus. This is a combination for a perfect, floral union, which fits perfectly with the young loving couple. The beautiful make-up was a combination between mermaid and ice princess, united with the flower crown made of roses, helleborus and gypsophila.

This beach was a pretty special background that made for great couple pictures! The bloom-frame and the Bohéme teepee set the stage perfectly.
