Intimate Hawaiian Real Wedding by James Rubio Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Bright persimmon hues and deep and very vibrant fuchsias…all on the scenic island of Kauai… sounds like paradise to me. Claire and Jing’s destination wedding is a bundle of gorgeousness. The bride and groom were born in difference Chinese cities, but met in London where they attended college.  After five years there, and three subsequent years in a long distance relationship, the couple was very happy to make a home together in Hong Kong and jet off to Hawaii for an intimate celebration.  Despite some unanticipated rain, these beautiful photos by James Rubio Photography are pure proof of a joyful and stunning wedding day!

Living in Hong Kong, the couple envisioned Hawaii to be sunny and bright.  What they weren’t counting on was the continuous tropical rain.  Although minorly disappointed, they embraced the Hawaiian mist and moved forward with an outdoor ceremony that was stunning to say the least.  Martin Roberts’ floral design was the ideal blend of vibrant island elegance, framing the entire event in exotic beauty.

Claire, in a sophisticated one-shoulder Vera Wang and Jing, in a classic black tuxedo, later took more photos in the warm rains and ended up happily soaked.  The locals reported that the Hawaiian rain was good luck for a wedding!  The couple joked back, ‘Well if that’s the case, today we are indeed extremely blessed people.’

Claire is a photography fanatic and came across James Rubio’s photography from thousands of miles away.  After falling in love with his style, the plan for the Hawaiian destination wedding emerged.

The quaint reception for ten was a site to behold!  On a covered porch at the Plantation Gardens, a dinner table with architectural centerpieces and glowing candlelight was set.  With the rain misting outside, it was a cozy little setting.  

We’re loving all of this Hawaiian eye candy and Claire and Jing’s impeccable style.  The juxtaposition of island beauty with luxury and elegance so makes me swoon.

  Happy wishes to this joy-filled couple! xoxo

{Part Two} Rustic Island Glamour by This Love of Yours… Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

As if Rana and Jay’s ceremony wasn’t gorgeous enough… we have a big spread of photos to share from their exquisite reception at RF 80 in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood.   The rustic island glamour theme continued with a variety of unique décor elements in shades of ivory, grey and sage.  Enjoy Part Two by  This Love of Yours…Photography.

The reception was a wonderland… a sight to behold.  Tables were dressed in shiny, crushed charcoal linens and topped with a dynamic blend of exotic and rustic florals.  It’s almost hard to find words to describe their unique and sophisticated style.  We’re simply in awe; these photos speak volumes for themselves. 

The evening was topped off with a shimmering, monochromatic candy bar and a heavenly cake with white chocolate mousse filling.  How utterly divine.   What a sweet, sweet and incredibly beautiful day it was.  We’re over the moon for Rana and Jay… be sure to peek at their video trailer by Lovespun Films.
