Okay, so here are some non professional pictures of our wedding, since we haven't got them back from our photographer! I'll post those later.
This picture of the start of my walk with my dad.
This is my dad and one of my sisters (bridesmaids)
This is a picture of me and one of my bridesmaids (my new sister-in-law). She had to change out of her bridesmaid dress so she could dance the Hula for us!
This is a picture of me and my HUSBAND (still getting use to calling him that!) and his sister.
Here is a picture of our cake, I'll try to find a bigger picture. Our cake was a 6 tier cake of three different flavors: Tiramisu, Banana Foster and Passion Fruit. Our cake was courtesy of "Tiers Of Joy". It was unbelievable! Leigh of Tiers of Joy did an awesome job! Our whole entire cake got eaten!!! She uses fresh fruit instead of the typical pureed fruits. For the Banana Foster, she used fresh slices of bananas and the Tiramisu was nice and light and the Passion Fruit cleaned your palate.
Our waiters served the head table with the passion fruit, after we ate that we wanted some of the Banana flavor since that was our favorite. The waiters told us there wasn't anymore banana left. Oh, we were so disappointed. Well after the wedding, I called Leigh from Tiers of Joy and let her know what a big hit the cake was and that we didn't get any of the banana, she baked a small banana cake just for us!!! We love her!
My husband and I cutting the cake!
Awhh yes, the Flowergirls. How cute are they?!

The reception area.
In our hotel room before the ceremony.
For the Bridesmaids I had White Calla Lilys. I love roses, but just not for my wedding.
Another shot of the bouquets (can't figure out how to rotate the picture on here.)
Our wedding colors were White, Turquoise Blue, and Lime Green. Our bridesmaid dresses are by Mori Lee. The color was absolutely gorgeous and vibrant!
I got the girls shoes at Baker's shoes, they no longer have them but they were white satin with rhinestones.
The Guys wore semi formal/causal. They wore khaki colored pants by Banana Republic and a white linen shirt by H&M.
The mens Shoes, are from Creative Recreation.
We like to do things a little different. So for my dress, I wanted to be a little sassy and edgier! I chose an Allure dress, everyone thought it was custom fit for me!
Here is the catalog picture of the dress in a different color, (but this color doesn't do it justice). My dress is in the Diamond White and is BEAUTIFUL!!!!
Also my Flowers, I believe my florist had them brought in from California. My Phalaneopsis orchids are out of season in the summertime in Hawaii (it's too hot for them to grow!). They were so big, that they looked as if they were on steroids! I even had some people ask if they were real.
I used an Orchid for my hair instead of the traditional veil. I orginally bought a veil with a rhinestone edge, but my husband didn't want me wearing a veil. It turned out for the best, the flower was much more us and casual!
