Lauren and David-0766.jpg

Lauren and David's oceanfront wedding burst with beauty and personality. We just adore when couples decide to weave unique details and personal touches into their island celebration, and Lauren went above and beyond to create a wedding that was absolutely perfect for her and David. We are so grateful that Dmitri and Sandra Photography was there to capture all of the stunning details and heartwarming moments.

Inspired by their song "Better Together," Lauren had signs made with those words written on them to hang on the back of their dinner chairs. Other signs were also created and placed throughout that reflected David's Wyoming roots. Instead of a traditional guest book, friends and family wrote words of love and congratulations on a wooden sign that will undoubtably hang in our newlyweds' home for years to come. Lauren also incorporated her love for her animals into her special day, adding charms with photos of their dogs to her bouquet, which hung by a braid of a small lock of her horse's mane. She also took real horseshoes and glittered the tips to decorate the tables. Every detail held so much meaning for the couple, and it made the celebration that much more special.

We envisioned a very private, intimate event that would bring together our closest family and friends. We very much wanted to embrace the spirit and traditions of the Hawaiian Islands. I love the idea of “rustic glam” for decor. David is from Wyoming and I ride and show paint horses so we both can embrace our inner Cowboy/girl but we also have a taste for the finer things in life. I love all things bling, so some sparkle and a chandelier were definite must haves! Tropical florals and warm gold accent pieces seemed like they would just add a little something extra to an already exceptionally beautiful wedding location.

Our day was Blissful from start to finish. I was able to relax and enjoy getting ready with my bridal party having full confidence that everything would be perfectly put together when it was time to start the event!. MeiLi Autumn Beauty did a fantastic job on everyone’s hair and makeup. MeiLi and Bri are amazing! They were great at keeping a schedule so no one felt rushed. Dmitri was awesome at giving direction when we needed it for our photos and was also great at just doing his thing- there were times we forgot he was even there! I can say the same thing for the Driftwood films team. They were so professional! Ernest, our officiant, directed a beautiful and authentic ceremony and Derick Sebastian played the most beautiful ukulele. We knew that our Sugar Beach Events catering would be fantastic and it totally was! We had so many compliments on how great all of the food was! The waitstaff and bartender were awesome as well. Top notch service.

Darren and Shane were so amazing. They kept things moving along smoothly and they gave direction where they needed to as well as just let us enjoy our party! I didn’t have one worry in the world! Everything about our day exceeded all expectations. The worst part of the night was when it was over!!

I think having a coordinator is money well spent as far as your sanity goes! Bliss made our lives so much easier along the whole planning process, knowing that someone who really knew what they were doing was guiding us and holding our hands through the process. I felt very little stress throughout the whole planning process right up until the day of. My biggest worry was how the weather was going to be! It was great to have peace of mind that everything would come together and that I could sit back, relax and just enjoy this special day (that goes by in a flash) with my new husband and our friends and family! I’m already planning that at some point we will go back to Maui to renew our vows and Darren will be the first person I call when we are ready to do that!
