Lamour Photography did an outstanding job capturing this beautiful bride on her wedding day. My favorite was the cake done by Paradise Pastries. Wedding was held at the Paliku Gardens at Kualoa Ranch.

I have to say this was my favorite wedding theme of 2010. Havana Hawaii! First off, I adore the couple. Second it was my first stab at this theme. Guests arrived to Cuban postcards which they signed and dropped in the "mailbox". The picked up their escort cards that were pinned to orange cuties from Safeway. They were greeted with signature mojito's by my favorite bartenders Greg & Dricka of Hoonui Events. The bride had very unique ideas like the capriz shell curtain on the bamboo arch & hiring a professional dancer to give her guests salsa lessons during her wedding. That was a HUGE hit!!! Live Salsa Band by Rolando Sanchez, Professional Salsa Dancers and Cuban food from Soul De Cuba. The lighting decor was done by Hawaii Stage & Lighting who are very dear to my heart. Star Creations did the florals. We took leftover coffee cans, thanks to Agnes Bakery (who also made a delicious cake), the groom wrapped them in fun Cuban prints and Romy filled them with bright & vibrant flowers. Rebecca Mench hit it out of the park with a surprise groom's cake of his favorite tequila bottle.
The Baseball theme continues as the bride & groom take on the military tradition of swords. My all time favorite photo in this album is the bride & groom with her parents in focus during the ceremony. I adored her mother. Dmitri captured every emotion in every photo. Check out his blog for more. The bride's talented uncle of Flower N Fun designed the tables with hot pink roses, green apples and lilies. Escort cards were pinned into a green apple which made for a quick & healthy snack:-).
A lovely November wedding at Lanikuhonua on the west side of Oahu. The bride did a magnificent job planning, designing and hiring all vendors. They are ball players which is why the ring bearer is carrying the rings in a baseball glove, love it! Any time you can personalize your wedding and make it different than all the rest GO FOR IT! Ticket stubs escorted guests to their seats (another personalized touch). All photography by the outstanding Dmitri Photography!
