Colorful Eco-Friendly Maui Wedding at Punakea Palms
February 26, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Uncategorized 0 Comments

When Lizzy and Dean met in the middle of their respective home countries for an eco-friendly Hawaiian wedding at Punakea Palms, the result was pure magic! A Maui Wedding Day helped the couple plan a beautiful island wedding, focusing on eco-friendly materials, locally sourced food, and entirely rented decor and furniture. Every detail was full of love and full of joy that Naomi Levit Photography captured brilliantly! From the Hawaiian floral designs created by Dellables Wedding Florals & Design to the rainbow that appeared just as Lizza was walking down the aisle to the fire dancer at the end of the evening, there was true aloha spirit from beginning to end of this special day! The Couple: Lizzy and Dean The Wedding: Punakea Palms, Lahaina, Hawaii Being an international couple (Dean being from Australia and myself from Canada) it was difficult to select a location that would suit both families. We had created some amazing memories together in Maui and since it was situated in the heart of our two countries we decided to host the wedding of our dreams on this magical island. It was important to us to create a memory that our guests would last forever while still maintaining that cool and relaxed Hawaiian vibe. […]

This Folksy Vedder River Elopement in Chilliwack, British Columbia was Chock-Full of Cozy Details
February 20, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Wedding 0 Comments

We’re honestly not sure what we loved most about this Vedder River elopement: the private vow exchange on the river bank, the backyard pizza party, or the bride’s modern-boho style! Acacia and Matt chose to have just a couple of witnesses present for their ceremony, which made the whole event feel natural and spontaneous, and made their cozy post-ceremony picnic even sweeter! One month later, it was time to celebrate with all their friends and family, pizza, charcuterie boards, and all the warmth of a casual backyard party. Photographer Angela Ruscheinski did an incredible job capturing both parts of this amazing celebration and all the nuance that goes into an elopement, especially one with two distinct yet equally charming parts! The Couple: Acacia and Matt The Wedding: Vedder River and Private Residence, British Columbia Choosing our elopement venue was a challenge. First, we live in an absolutely beautiful, natural area and we considered the elements: water, mountain, forest, field. I grew up in the prairies and that seemed like a natural choice…I also grew up on a river and, in the end, that is where we were drawn. We spent a day driving to a few locations, scoping it out, we found a […]

This Edgy Elegant Portland Wedding at Bingham Estate was a Champagne-Fueled Party to Remember
February 19, 2019 by Khoi Nguyen in Wedding 0 Comments

“Magical, formal, champagne-fueled, but relaxed.” That was the vision behind Ali and Wil’s incredible Portland wedding at Bingham Estate, and that’s exactly what they got with the help of the planning team at Bridal Bliss! From the decision not to have a first look to the focus on florals and vows during the ceremony, every bit of this wedding perfectly matched the couple’s unique vibe. Blum Floral Design did a phenomenal job creating arrangments that added a wow factor to every nook and cranny. And the bride’s chic Meghan Markle and Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy inspired Pronovias gown and simple accessories were the cherry on top of this not-too-traditional, not-too-trendy day! We can’t get enough of every unique element — especially their fun champagne tower “unity ceremony” — and love how photographers Dylan Howell and Jess Woodhouse didn’t miss a beat in documenting it all! The Couple: Ali and Wil The Wedding: Bingham Estate, Wilsonville, Oregon The most important thing in planning the wedding was making sure that each aspect was representative of us as a couple. From the music to the food to the flowers to the exact words in the ceremony, we wanted to make sure that each piece personified who we are. We love music so we chose the music […]

Inspired by the rustic feel of California farmlands, Ruth and Caleb created an unforgettable wedding day at Pearson Ranch that was as heartfelt as it was charming! The couple let natural be the primary decorator for their day and added sweet DIY touches, such as the handmade flower arrangements and table numbers, for a personal feel that perfectly suited their rustic, homegrown vibe. After their ceremony, which was set in the middle of a field with a simple wooden arch and bales of hay for seating, the couple journeyed with their guests to the property’s green barn for a cozy reception full of wildflowers and cafe lights. The entire day had that cool, laid-back romance we love most about California weddings, and Regan Scaife Photo & Video captured the inviting charm Ruth and Caleb curated for their special day brilliantly! The Couple: Ruth and Caleb The Wedding: Pearson Ranch, Woodside, California We wanted to get married near Ruth‘s hometown. Growing up near the Santa Cruz mountains, she always hiked through them on weekends and we both love the golden California hills. In high school, Ruth would often drive down an old windy road with friends across the mountains to the beach, and the road is so familiar, […]
