Kapalua Private Estate & Dellables

Dining Tent set by the Sea, arrangements for the "Dellables Dream Team"
Pretty Bouquets all in a Row

The weather was a bit wintery for this event, but the magic managed to shine through.  Wild waves pounding into the cliffs, wind and some rain, but the Wedding Party played on!

Thanks to Lori at Tropical Maui Weddings for inviting us to decorate!

Dellables Dream Team worked hard but had more fun than anyone!

Bamboo & Orchids

At the recently closed Kailani House on the water near Maalaea Harbor, Dellables had another fun day of designing and decorating!

Lori of Tropical Maui Weddings organized this commitment ceremony and somehow arranged a perfect afternoon of lighting, tropical breezes and gentle waves lapping at the nearby shore.

(p.s. it's not really bamboo, but it sure looks like it doesn't it?)

Sunken Treasure

This is a sunken treasure that might escape the attention of Captain Jack Sparrow, but not the eyes of the admiring guests and bridal party.  Lori at Tropical Maui Weddings arranged with Gannons and Dellables to showcase something quite beyond gold.

~ Orchids under the sea, captured in  glass, sprinkled with crystals ~

Gannons has more than just a view of the sunbathed ocean.  They sit beneath the majestic uplands of Haleakala, manicured like a garden, surrounded by lush golf celebrations.  And, they have Miss America Salinas, probably the nicest person in the entire Maui wedding industry.  She can help with you with all things related to your wedding activities at Gannons.

Of course, where there is sunken treasure the sea cannot be much farther.  All the more special for its fragile beauty this is something even a pirate would love to have.

Aloha ~

Maui Wedding from Lovely Leaf Studios

Are you all ready for a little getaway to the gorgeous island of Maui? Since most of us can’t up and leave, we can instead live vicariously through this paradise infused wedding at a former sugar mill. It is filled to the tippy-top with tropical DIY projects and of course, a stunning couple. Lovely Leaf Studioscaptured the magic and  they have a lot more where this came from in the gallery.

We opted for a destination wedding to share a deep and personal experience with our family and guests. We already wanted to have a classy, romantic and intimate wedding. We vacationed together in Maui with friends once and loved the old Hawaiian vintage charm and beautiful sunset in Maui. Last year September we went back to Maui to scout some vendors and venues for our wedding. Our venue Haiku Mill is a beautifully restored old sugar mill located in Haiku State – North Shore, Maui . We found the site online and when we visited the grounds, we immediately fell in love. The four, very tall ivy covered walls are left standing and create an incredibly romantic, intimate and unique setting.
We wanted to make sure our guests were able to notice our personal touches. Stationary, centerpieces, wish tree, favors are DIY with help of friends and family members. It was lots of work, but it made the whole planning process very memorable. I had a personalized hanger and cake topper made from etsy.com. Everyone had a fun with props at the photo station and enjoyed groom and bride’s signature cocktails and appetizers with local flavors such as spam musubi and row bar during cocktail hour.
After sunset, during reception many candles were lit with chandeliers and people were blowing soap bubbles dancing away. It was a magical night!

Seaside Design Series: Part 1

Mahalo to Tropical Maui Weddings Lori & Jamie for providing the wonderfully enjoyable opportunity to again...Design by the Sea.

Chair decor comes in many flavors.  Here we enjoyed hosting the flowers in glass for its talent at bending the tropical sun.

The wedding Chuppa stood close enough to the water to catch the sparkling sun from the lagoon there.

We hung coral from the beach to hold the orchid strands against the light breeze.
The gentle Hawaiian air moved them against the bamboo signaling to the Bride that it was time.
Musical Arches are now a new feature here at Dellables!
