We had the great pleasure to again work with Events By Evonne and grace the grounds of the Honua Kai Lani Estate with our fabric draped bamboo Dining Canopies.
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.
The caterers then set a fine setting and with a perfectly timed sunset and a specially ordered Full Moon, the wedding party settled into a very enjoyable evening indeed.
Inside the Dining Canopies we suspended thin bamboo poles to support customized silk Chinese lanterns with a low wattage ambient bulb. Very nice touch.
Beyond the canopies, and not in these pictures we had a 100 foot string of nylon "moon lights" with sufficient lighting for the small dance floor and the outdoor furniture.
The weather, as usual, cooperated fully saving the blessed rain for after midnight, when all the guests had long since departed.
The wedding party, from the San Francisco area, commented that despite many trips to the Islands in the past, this particular evening, with it's special ambience and decorations, did indeed make a most lasting impression on one and all.
We couldn't agree more!
