Since our destination wedding was in Maui, we stayed two weeks to continue our honeymoon. It was absolutely amazing and the entire experience is definitely one to be had, rather than described. We had the time of our lives that two weeks, and we already cannot wait to go back! We've actually become buds with our photographer who lives there, so we're looking forward to another visit, an anniversary photo shoot, and more relaxing memories.
I'm an Interior Designer in San Diego, CA and I'm the happiest newlywed!

Our talented photographer, Ian Shepherd of APDW, captured our day exactly as we had imagined.
We were married bright and early on a Sunday morning at 9:30 AM oceanside on a beautiful beach in Makena, Maui- Hawaii. It seems so fitting that we were married on a Sunday, the one day a week we can always count on spending with each other without having to work. The 23rd, our wedding day, also happened to fall on a Sunday and being that this date carries the significance of the beginning of our relationship, it was meant to be. Our morning was perfect: it was warm, it was quiet, it was outdoors, the waves were crashing on shore, the light trade-winds were blowing through the palms, we were surrounded by love, we felt loved, we loved each other, we promised our love to each other, and our day was lovely.
Please reference my photographer Ian Shepherd if using any photos. His work may be seen at the following websites:
SO HAPPY that I did this project, I feel like it will really add to our minimal decor on our wedding day. I made two runners, one for our ceremony program table and one for our cake table (which the monogram is slightly smaller).
I bought some linen fabric at Joann's Craft Store and sewed all edges with 1/4" hem. I created a monogram using Photoshop and enlarged it using a copier and placed it under the fabric, tracing it lightly directly on the fabric using a pencil. I then applied plain white acrylic paint onto the fabric and painted "within the lines" of the monogram. **Important tip from PWer Nana Boop**: I placed wax paper in between my fabric and working surface so that the paint that seeped through the fabric would not get onto the table. It was easily removable from the back of the fabric once I completed painting.
Simple project, just time consuming.
