Asia & Eddie : Kahala Resort & Spa : Oahu

November 1, 2008

I wanted to share a few images from Asia & Eddie’s destination wedding in Honolulu. These two were so much fun and the day was just beautiful!! It was held at the Kahala Resort & Spa, one of my favorite places to work in the islands. The service, the atmosphere, the food…pure glamour!

The bride’s top priority were the florals and she wanted a feel that reflected the islands with a more subtle approach, so we enlisted Fong of Floral Inspirations and she did just that. With the juicy citrus tones and the touches of coral and beachwood, Fong definitely didn’t disappoint. If you ever find yourself planning a wedding on Oahu, Fong is a MUST! For anyone who follows my work, she is also the florist of Judy & Albert’s featured wedding from my website and Style Me Pretty. Her work is lavish without being overdone, and is ALWAYS interesting. I just love her!

The ceremony took place on the oceanfront lawn near the resort’s wedding gazebo. Afterwards the guests were lead by ukulele to the resort’s ballroom which overlooks tropical gardens, a waterfall and dolphin pools. It was a hit! The group had an extravagant dinner following by dancing the night away to Oahu’s best DJ, Teley Brandon of ShowTime DJs.

Images are by the amazing Rachel Robertson, who shoots about 90% of my destination weddings. She’s wonderful!

Oh, and I have to mention the calligraphy. It was done by Laura Hooper, who I will be doing a full blog on any day now. I love Laura’s work so much, I have her design everything for me, from my logo down to my business cards and press kits. She is AMAZING and can literally do anything!
