Castle Point Wedding in Kailua

Just stop thinking about it, you won't get to have your wedding here! It was a very special friend who loaned her home to a dear friend. We were all totally stunned and in awe of the beauty of this place. I get phone calls everyday asking to have their wedding here. It's a private estate owned by an amazing family who is so lovely and generous. I loved this bride because she let me do my job and completely trusted me. It's not every day I fall in love with the family either. They were very kind and took me in like I was their own. I got texts, thank you cards and gifts from all of them. I wish I could hang out with them all the time! Eddy Wong of Renai photo wowed us by his skills and design. He took amazing shots. I loved the way he took advantage of the lighting. Beaches and Backyard Catering gave our mouths a party! I'm in love with bride and flower girl shots. As says, panoramic group photos are a hit and must have in 2012! This maid of honor speech was awesome! She relived a moment back in the day of the brides karate performance. Have you ever seen a MOH do a better job then a best man?

Outrigger Hotel Waikiki

I don't have a lot to say about this couple except if there was a bride that I could pick as my new friend it would be her! She was so awesome and we had such a nice time planning her wedding that I gave her money back! That has never happened! I treated her to her rental chairs because they were just that awesome! Outrigger Waikiki was a great spot for this couple to have a destination wedding. Picket Fence of 96734 did a great job bringing in her colors and favorite flowers. Their florals are flawless. Stephen Ludwig, one of my favorite Oahu photographers is just a dream in capturing these special moments. The cake by Paradise Pastries was gorgeous. More photos to come!
