And now… the PARTY!!!! Our ceremony could not have been sweeter but the reception was my favorite part! From our incredible soloist, Freddy Leone who set the mood, to all the twinkly lights and romantic florals, the scene was my dream! Annddd our friends and family came ready to DANCE! From the moment G and I walked in, until the hotel staff kicked us out, everyone was on the dance floor! We only took a break so my dad could deliver a sweet toast!
I wore the Carolina by Pronovias for our reception and felt like I was walking on a bed of roses all night long!! Dramatic, a bit sexy, and light enough to dance the night away! Designed by @moreau.herve for their Atelier Pronovias 2019 presentation, I was so excited to have the privilege of being the first to wear it straight off the runway!
Before we headed down to the reception, G and I took some time to just connect and reflect on our vows and ceremony. Kim, our Four Seasons Liason arranged for us to get ready for the wedding in the STUNNING hotel penthouse so we could get the most epic balcony shots overlooking the island (coming soon in our Youtube video!). These were some of my absolute favorite shots from the whole day!
The ambiance at the Four Seasons Oahu was beyond perfect and turned out even better than I had hoped! When planning the wedding, we knew we wanted the reception outdoors and envisioned tons of string lights and soft lighting on the palm trees, creating a beautifully intimate and romantic atmosphere. For florals, we did all white centerpieces of different types of native blooms, then mixed in greenery and tropical foliage along with layers of candlelight to create a soft glow and tie in with the string lights above.
I was so in love with our stunning cake from A Cake Life!! Loved the semi-naked buttercream and textured buttercream designs throughout each layer.
The incredibly talented Freddy Leone serenaded us down the aisle and all of our guests during cocktail hour while we took family photos and did my dress change! He was the sweetest and really wanted to make sure he set the mood, so he learned some of our favorite songs. He really made our night! Thank you so much Freddy!
Welcoming our guests and thanking them all for making the long journey in to celebrate with us!
First Dance 🖤
