This time of year we’re betting that everyone is ready for some lazy, warm days in a tropical paradise. Perfect time of year to pack your bag with a new suit (and not much else), and jet off on an adventure to Kauai. It’s all easy living on island time, and your vacation wardrobe should be too.

Kauai honeymoon style | 100 Layer Cake

Stay on the quiet north side of the island at the St. Regis Princeville, where our friend Katie of EA Honeymoons can book you an amazing stay, complete with free breakfast for 2, a $100 hotel credit, and complimentary upgrade whenever possible.

Take day trips to hike the Kalalau trail along the Napali Coast, kayak in sea caves, and dine in the charming surf town of Hanalei. Circle ’round to the other side of the island for spectacular snorkeling and a visit to the stunning Waimea Canyon. Or just lay on the beach and drink Mai Tais. Can’t go wrong.

1. Classic sunnies
2. Organic sunscreen from Nine Naturals
3. A simple beachy tee
4. Shima cuff from Misa Jewelry
5. Silk bedroom romper
6. Scarf/wrap for après beach and cooler nights
7. Perfect white kaftan
8. Opal Dream ring
9. Hawaiian print shorts
10. Sun hat
11. Leather sandals
12. MCMC perfume oil
13. Leather-handled tote
14. Beach read
15. Sexy new suit

My Flowerbox Events really went all out for this one—a floral draped altar, cascading greenery around the venue’s entrances, a garland-adorned mantel, and a floral chandelier—to name a few swoon-worthy touches. Accented with gold and captured in Krista A. Jones’ rich and dreamy photography style, the team sure took soft romance up a notch.

We never say no to love quotes from classic literature… Thank you, Fitzgerald.

When the girls behind Kruse and Vieira Events were designing for the Bow Ties & Bubbly event at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club last month, they kept the table neutral to let those blooms shine. That meant blush details, silk ribbon, and watercolor paper accents. Kinda in love with all the texture here!

Wooden cross back farm chairs from Select Event Rentals balanced the elegant vintage elements on the table, creating a relaxed intimate vibe. Soft linen napkins and table cloths acted as a neutral base for the vintage elements and decadent florals to stand out creating the perfect organic, yet timeless setting. The sweetheart table was set apart by a cascading floral chandelier and chiffon draped across.

Isn’t this hairstyle breathtaking? An updo is such a good choice when you’re wearing something like the Waterfall Dress from BHLDN. Those silk buttons! This entire ensemble really encompasses D + B’s small garden wedding. The intimacy allowed them to write little notes to each guest, connect with everyone, and snag the right venues. Everything was as timeless as that dress—for $13k in under five months, too.

Thanks to Kristyn Harder Photography for the images below!

The bride’s favorite elements of both Reader Rock Garden in Calgary + their reception and catering, Open Range Restaurant: I liked that both places didn’t require any decorating. The garden was immaculately maintained and already had a gazebo on the main lawn. The restaurant, open range, was very rustic inside, but having ate there a couple times before, it was definitely the food that made it our top choice.

Bonnie says, Our aisle song was Knocking On Heaven’s Door over the piano, although I don’t think even a quarter of the song played, I basically ran down the aisle to Dan. We never got a formal first dance at our wedding so a few weeks later I lit tea lights all around our kitchen before Dan come home, we opened a bottle of our favourite champagne and danced to What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong. This was a good fit for us as all of our best dances take place in the kitchen!

A darling mix of peach avalanche roses, Juliet garden roses, cream astilbe, and wheat.

After the ceremony Dan + Bonnie had lunch together on the veranda of the cafe, a perfect first date as Mr. and Mrs.

Cheers you two!
