Love this blog post over at Groom Sold Separately. Texas photography sensation, Zasey Photography, captured a lot of Hawaiian magic for this gorgeous event on Maui. Enjoy! Tables, Arch, Florals by Dellables.
Situated on the south facing shoreline of our beautiful island, we placed the Canopies about 20 feet from the slightly elevated edge of the famous La Perouse Bay. The ocean was it's usual calm and inviting self, but this late in the afternoon, only a few turtles were enjoying the warm waters.
The theme colors were bronze and crimson, which were highlighted quite dramatically by the red table linens. Once Della added her multitude of table arrangements it was just what a Bride would expect for her special day!
Mosaic candle holders were specially ordered from Asia along with red tea light holders from New York.
The larger square vases were anchored with crystal marbles and half filled with Maui rain water. There, the Ecuadorian roses, Big Island orchids and ginger, California dahlias rested comfortably awaiting their admirers.
As evening approached on the south Maui coastline, on this multi-acre private estate in Makena, Honua Kai Lani, the elegant Bamboo Dining Canopies were waiting patiently for their inhabitants.
Paper lanterns swung lightly in the fragrant air moving ever so slightly out toward the reef and the dozens of playful turtles. The afternoon tourist snorkelers were all gone, leaving the stillness to a very fortunate Wedding party.
This 11 acre ocean side estate has many great locations to setup either dining canopies or arches or large dancing floors! Dellables situated their dining location mere steps from the ocean on a small point framed by a nice jungle and a small sandy cove. Lovely only begins to describe what you feel, not just see. Put a couple of Hawaiian islands (Lanai, Molokini and Kohoolawe) on the near horizon and you have nothing short of Magic.
Now add some Dellables.com enhancements and you are there!
Check out this custom ordered, custom designed head table arrangement that met the Bride's unique idea of "going green"! We constructed the bamboo lined container from recycled wood and filled it with fine Maui soil and her favorite miniature bear grass.
This grass is now planted, and thriving, at the Dellables.com Nursery on the tropical north shore of Maui.
Finally, you must take a look at the tall black bamboo chuppa! Here, the couple exchanged their vows on yet another outcropping of land in this spectacular location. It borders the first cove ever anchored by European explorers way back when, La Perouse Bay.
This is one of our favorite locations to setup!
At the beautiful Sugarman's Estate in Makena, Maui, Hawaii we set up this four posted Arch draped in flowers, flowing fabric. Set along a point of land bordering La Perouse Bay, and facing west, the Bride and Groom looked enchanted!
