Our tropical, oceanfront wedding venue was infused with rustic elegance for the wedding of Bliss brides Sarah and Sara. The two were stunning--each representing their individual personalities and styles in their gorgeous and unique dresses.
After their intimate Jewish ceremony with friends and family in front of them and the melodic movement of the ocean behind them, the newlyweds joined their guests for an island-inspired sit-down dinner. A burlap and white table runner ran along the center of the dark wooden table, subtly showcasing the rustic details-- soft green succulents and moss beds beautifully offset by pops of orange and pink dahlias and bright yellow billy buttons.
Chef Tiffany of Maui Catering Services created a mouth-watering menu for the outdoor reception. The gourmet appetizers included spring rolls with mango and mint paired with coconut almond sauce, a tropical fruit bouquet with mint and toasted coconut, and chicken satay skewers with peanut dipping sauce. Guests were given the choice between locally caught, fresh fish either macadamia nut encrusted with tropical fruit salad or pan seared with macadamia nut scallion butter. Unlike many dining experiences, Chef Tiffany also had a delectable option for the vegetarians equally as tantalizing-- moch dinner with tofu or zucchini steaks nestled in a bed of coconut jasmine rice with kiffer lime leaves and complimented with asian stir fried vegetables.
This rustic elegant wedding holds a truly special place in our hearts, not only because it celebrated the love between two exceptionally amazing human beings, but also because it was the best way we could have imagined celebrating the legalization of same-sex marriages, which passed only two days before this event. What a monumental weekend!
