Perfectly Intimate Hawaiian Venue
From Michelle Garibay Events: This was an intimate event by Hawaii standards so a private oceanfront venue was important to them. Loulu Palm Estate was the perfect fit. It is one of my favorite locations on Oahu, complete with an iconic plantation-style house on site with amazing lighting inside the bride’s room. I was actually one of the first planners to book the venue back in 2009 as it was just getting started and it just gets better year after year.
Planning From Afar
This was a destination wedding with the bride and groom planning with me from Ohio, so visuals in the design process were key. Melissa wanted a chic event incorporating shades of purple and contemporary elements in the clear ghost chairs and glass chargers, but also wanted to mix in some natural, rustic pieces like the wood tables to complement the outdoor surroundings. The capiz shell chandeliers added some island elegance and finished the reception design beautifully.
Family Food & Fun
Melissa and Bart wanted their reception to be centered around the food, so Memoirs created a delicious four-course Hawaiian-fusion plated dinner filled with farm-to table offerings from locally grown sources. Most of the evening was filled with conversation and laughter around the dining tables.
A fun and inviting dessert bar finished the evening with various French macarons, decadent chocolates and mini-cupcakes incorporating quite a few favorite local flavors.
