Turquoise + Lime Green Maui Wedding by Joanna Tano Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Destination Weddings, Real Weddings

I’ve got a cool, color-filled treat for you this afternoon!  Sara and Richard married last July in Maui at a private estate with an amazing deck.  Their turquoise and lime green palette was unique and tropical, perfectly fit for a destination wedding.  The entire day was planned from Alabama, but with a team of amazing vendors- everything went smooth as can be.  Here’s a peek at the photos by Joanna Tano!For the ceremony, Sara wore a heavenly, white and green orchid lei and Richard wore a maile leaf lei made by Country Bouquets. Their Hawaiian theme involved  incorporating several traditional elements, a spread of tropical flowers, and brightly colored accent décor. After the ceremony, it was time for mai tais and Hawaiian style fun!  The couple’s forty guests kicked off the celebration with tons of dancing on a deck filled with green and blue lanterns.  Maui Wedding Cakes designed a fabulous blue-frosted confection adorned with green orchids. 

The wedding was intimate, sweet, and fun.  Being able to share the day with their families in an amazing location made it even more meaningful. ♥

Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Happy Tuesday!  Hope you’re coming off of a memorable and wonderful holiday weekend.  We’re back in action with a charmingly fresh real wedding from our talented friends, Kristie and Brett over at ngg studios.  If you love the look of the white bridesmaid dress á la Pippa Middleton, you’ll just love Bec and Adam’s white wedding in Byron Bay!  Bec, from Australia, and Adam, from New Zealand met while traveling in Europe with friends.  It was clear that their connection was meant to last long past the holiday.  After traveling around the globe together for two years and spending four years in New Zealand, they landed on the Gold Coast to settle down and celebrate their marriage!How darling are those lace minis….and the bridesmaid’s shoes by Mollini?!  To die for!  ngg studios captured their effortlessly lovely day with perfection… The couple married outdoors at The Fig Tree, under a broad canopy of ivory umbrellas.  Flecks of purple were incorporated into the florals and décor, adding just a touch of color to the day. 

At the reception, each table was themed after a country that Adam and Rebecca had visited during their time living overseas. Travel memorabilia adorned the gift table and a collection of vintage post cards was set out for guests to write messages of love and support.

Serious swoon… See more photos from Bec and Adam’s day in the real wedding gallery!

All our best to this bright and adventurous couple.
