A sophisticated Hawaiian wedding: Courtney + Hunter
Now that we’re back from this little three-day vacation, we’ve got one thing on the mind – more vacation! Today we’re basking in all that is glamorous in Courtney+ Hunter’s wedding. Vintage-inspired-seaside-garden party is what it’s all about, and we’re falling hard for it.
As the ceremony began Courtney was adorned with a triple strand pikake and Hunter with a Maile lei twisted with pikake.
Instead of one signature cocktail why not try three (we’re sure your guests won’t mind)! Mai Tai’s, Blue Moon’s and Old Fashioned’s made their way into guests hands alongside this drop dead gorgeous backdrop.
Wooden box crates and vintage napkins purchased at vintage expos, Etsy and Ebay provided the vintage-inspired look, while test tubes filled with Hawaiian Black Lava Sea Salt or Hawaiian Red Alaea Sea Salt (assembled by the couple themselves), gave way to the seaside garden party feeling they were after. Success!
Sitting pretty inside each centerpiece crate were: king protea, blue thistle, succulents, red ginger, red ti leaves, uluhe fern, dusty miller, and cymbidium orchids.
A destination wedding done right, yes? It’s no wonder that they were also featured on Martha Stewart Weddings! Congrats Courtney & Hunter – you simply took our breath away! Plus, we’re pretty sure your wedding was the perfect little nudge nudge our brides-to-be needed in regards to their destination wedding dreams.
