From Jana of Jana Morgan Photography… Sylvia and Justin came to Maui from Canada to get married at the Olowalu Plantation House to celebrate their marriage with their closest friends and family members.To carry on their family traditions, Sylvia and Justin had a Chinese tea ceremony to honor their family and dearest friends. Instead of using hot tea during this warm day in Hawaii, they used Hawaii iced tea. The two knelt in front of the families, presenting them with a cup of tea and a red envelope, while the families gave their words of blessing with a gift. The wedding ceremony was by the ocean among family and friends who traveled long distances to witness Justin and Sylvia tie the knot. The wedding was photographed with both film and digital photography.

We are always thrilled to be included in the beautiful creations they call Pacific Weddings Magazine!  Here is a story they featured recently with our floral masterpieces and Maui's spectacular scenery!
(the Bride's thank you note is below!)

Hi Della,

Just a quick (and overdue!) message to say a MASSIVE thank you again for all the amazing flowers you did for our wedding. I can not believe you were able to track down the coral peonies - what a feat! - but I'm so glad you did as they looked just stunning. And I really just can't describe how much we loved our centrepieces - definitely my favourite element from the wedding and so many guests came up to me to tell me the same. They were out-of-this-world incredible! 

Also, just wanted to send you a quick message as Joanna submitted our wedding to Pacific Weddings and I believe they will be featuring it in their upcoming issue (released sometime this summer, July I think?). Anyway thought I'd mention it so you can look out for it! 

Thanks again - we were completely blown away by your work!

Cheers,
Chanel

big MAHALO out to Melissa McClure Photography for another classic !


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

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2011 AT 11:21AM POSTED IN TRAVELWEDDING
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!

Olowalu Shell Wedding

If I were King of Maui, I would have two homes.  One up in Haleakala Crater at the Paliku Cabin and the other at Olowalu Plantation House.

This venue, on the water, is a classic location perfectly suited to entertaining, and thus of course for weddings.

Lori of Tropical Maui Weddings coordinated the 60 person event and put in a good word for the weather as well.

The Dellables crew followed the beach theme including natural driftwood gathered for months ahead on this very beach!

Maui Wedding by Aaron Snow + Carl Zoch

March 31st. 2011 by Erin | Filed Under | 29 comments
Meet Aaron Snow and Carl Zoch, two amazing photographers who also happen to be the best of buds. Now meet their latest collaboration, a McDreamy Maui wedding full of gamorous details and so much golden sun, we New Englanders sort of want to bottle it up and put in our pockets for safe keeping. And then there is the couple. Let’s just say they are incredibly easy on the eyes. See for yourself in the FULL wedding galleries here and here.

From the Bride… Stephan and I first began chatting online over 13 years ago when we discovered we had a mutual love of creative writing, poetry and Shakespeare. We were only teenagers at the time and I was so impressed that another young person had a strong interest in Shakespeare as I did. What began as an amazing online friendship, turned into a real life romance, even though he lived in New York and I in California. After a long distance relationship that lasted for 6 years (and the use of many frequent flyer miles), Stephan moved to California to be closer to me and that’s when I knew he was who I wanted for life.  Another two years would go by before Stephan finally popped the question and (of course) I said “yes!”
Since our families were split between the East and West Coasts, Stephan and I decided we wanted an intimate destination wedding in a tropical location and Maui was perfect. My mother and I flew to Maui to check out different venues for the wedding, but when we stumbled on to Olowalu Plantation, our search was over. The property was postcard perfect with an eclectic house that was a perfect backdrop for pictures. I was literally able to envision myself getting married there and the planning began.
Although I wanted to have a beach wedding, I wanted to incorporate an old world Shakespearean feel to it in a simplied, mordern & elegant way as a tribute to what brought us together so many years before. Instead of the traditional ring bearer pillow, I had the rings tied to a copy of the “Complete Works of Shakespeare” and Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116 read by a close family member.  The theme song from “Romeo & Juliet” (“A Time for Us”) was played by a harpist while my mom and dad walked me down the aisle.
After the ceremony, we all dined under exotic fabric tents with chandeliers and dozens of lit candelabra’s. Because we were in Maui we kept our flowers minimal and simple. Creme & white roses in small low vases complimented the table decor without overpowering it. The colors were creme, champagne and gold, which presented a warm relaxed feel in the night. Since my family loves to dance, we also had an all white lounge area that surrounded the dance floor to give the beach a cool nightlife type atmosphere.
To honor my groom’s heritage, I wanted to incorporate Greek inspired dishes to the fare. Guest dined on lamb sliders with tzatziki sauce, medittereanean salad skewers and smoked mozzarella with honey and figs in phyllo. The guests raved about these hor duerves all night! To go along with the wedding cake, we also had a dessert bar made up of different types of creme brulee’s, miniature cheesecake’s and chocolate caramel puff’s.
Ultimately, my wedding day was everything I wanted and more. I felt like there were touches of me, Stephan and the path of our love from the first online chat to the first kiss as husband and wife infused into different elements of the ceremony and reception. What I will remember most is being surrounded by my loved ones and my loved one in a beautiful location and I will forever smile and laugh whenever I think back on it.

The Journey or the Destination?

~~~

When Dellables Wedding Design and Florals gets involved in your big day, you might ask yourself this very question.....

Where is the magic?  In the journey or the destination....which is more beautiful, the chair decor or the floral arch by the sea?

Well, we know the answer to that question and you probably do as well....

It is in both.
