Lyn & Steffen’s Olowalu Wedding

When Dellables works with The Perfect Wedding Maui, magic happens!

I had the great pleasure of coordinating Lyn & Steffen’s wedding this June.  What a sweet, easy going couple they are. Lyn & Steffen chose the Olowalu Plantation House for their wedding and reception location.  They prepared their own vows to each other for their wedding ceremony performed by Pia Aluli. Lyn made a stunning bride and Steffen a handsome groom.  Lyn carried a bouquet of orange flowers wrapped with aqua ribbon.  Florist Della took a risk and wrapped the bouquet with a funky ribbon with beads on it instead of your traditional style wedding ribbon…and by Della ESP, the beads on the bouquet wrap mimicked the look of the beads on Lyn’s necklace!  How does she do that?  Just another example of why we love Della so much.

The couple “cracked the creme brulee” instead of cutting a wedding cake and had adorable, custom “cake toppers” made by one of their friends.  A hand-painted thumbprint tree, also made by a special guest, was absolutely beautiful.  Lots of little touches were evident at this wedding making it truly their own.  Many of Steffen’s family were able to attend from Denmark and brought with them some wedding traditions that we don’t typically see in the US. For instance, after the first dance, the Danish wedding guests surrounded the couple, pulled of Steffen’s shoe and cut off the top of his sock! (I haven’t seen that before) They then gave this to Lyn…the explanation was a bit vague, but had something to do with beginning her home-making skills with repairing his sock! Later in the evening, all of the female guests kissed Steffen, followed by all of the male guests kissing Lyn! And it wouldn’t be a Danish wedding without some merriment and song singing. Custom lyrics to an original wedding song were passed out for all of the guests to serenade the newlyweds. It was a joyful, memorable night. Congratulation Lyn & Steffen!

Jocelyn and Frederick, again!  This wedding was so much fun and enjoyable!

A Sunset Real Wedding in Maui by James Rubio

Posted on June 21st, 2012 by Kate. Filed under Destination WeddingsReal Weddings.

I’m so happy to have not one, but two incredible destination weddings to share with you this week!  Jocelyn and Frederick’s wedding is super special to us, as she is a beloved hostess on Project Wedding.  In fact, you might remember when we featured her bio! It’s packed with all of her inspirations and planning… so if you’re as in love with their big day as I am, you’ll definitely want to pour over every last bit of her planning process.  In the meantime, I could look at these photos by James Rubio for days…
Jocelyn looks so utterly happy…  I love how Aeleise at Hair Love Art Studio worked with her natural curl in a pretty, upswept style.  And those florals…I’m gushing!  Dellables used peach dahlias, gold ranunculus, white and green orchids and bold pink peonies to design the bouquets.   The soft ceremony palette seamlessly transformed into richer hues for the reception, with common threads of coral, peach, and gold. Jocelyn and Frederick married in an early evening ceremony, under an archway of coral fabric and hanging orchids…  too pretty for words if you ask me!These two met at work and, according to Jocelyn, they drove each other crazy from the start.  They were constantly at odds with one another.  But, the more they talked, the more chemistry they realized they had.  Eventually they started to chat on the phone… which turned into a nightly thing… and it was evident that a romance was brewing.  Five years later, Jocelyn and Frederick married in Maui! 
The couple celebrated their vows with a nighttime party at Mala Wailea.  Soft golden uplighting and more beautiful hanging flowers created a romantic ambiance.
A special thanks to Jocelyn for being such a fabulous hostess on PW and for sharing your day with us!

Olowalu Plantation House Wedding – Maui, HI – {Crayton + Vanessa}

Crayton and Vanessa (and their friends/family) came all the way from So. California to get married on the beautiful island of Maui.  The weather just couldn’t have been more perfect!  Their first look was one of the sweetest I have witnessed and their bridal party was so nice and willing to help out any way they could!  Cherise from The Perfect Maui Wedding made sure the day ran so smoothly and the talented Della of Dellables created one of my favorite bouquets to date!  At the end of the night, there were a few cases of Kona beer left over so I got to take one home to enjoy on my extended week in Maui with Jason!  Thanks you guys!  Aloha!

Magic takes Teamwork

When you see a Bride this happy you feel good.  You feel like smiling, or beaming, just like her.

A picture can capture the magic, but the magic takes a team to produce successfully.

Tami had her Star Team beginning with Cherise as Coordinator and Owner of The Perfect Wedding Maui.  She worked with Tami extensively to get all the vendors together and coordinated.

Photography is, as you would expect, a critical part of preserving the magic, keeping it alive in our memories long past when we might lose a small detail here or there.  Melissa McClure Owner of Melissa McClure Photography used her instruments of pixelation and capture as well as that famous artistic eye to bring us moments, slices of time, that we can enjoy now and along with the grand kids many years out!

Wedding Design and Florals flesh out the moment by moving the Bride's vision from dream to physical, taking her ideas and creating manifestations everyone can see and feel, and smell!  Della, Owner of Dellables Wedding Design and Florals, put her heart into the details, working directly with Tami to get it just right.

Catering by Food For the Soul, Minister, Rev Laki Ka'ahumanu, Make Up and Hair by Dan Sanchez and Jessica.  I may have missed something, and if I did, check out Tami's Project Wedding site for ALL the details.
