Grace and Thomas were not your typical bride and groom. They wanted their Hawaiian wedding to reflect their individual rock and roll style. Doing away with the traditional setting that we often see, this couple made the grounds of Olowalu Plantation House all their own. Setting the lawn as their very own love lounge, opting for comfortable furniture instead of tables and chairs and heavy hors d’oeuvres instead of a sit down dinner. With the sole focus to keep the party flowing!
Melissa of Opihi Love Boutique Rentals and Event Design, did a remarkable job of fulfilling the couples vision by dressing the space up with her extensive collection of vintage pieces. The cool palette of whites, blues, grey and blush pinks were a perfect compliment to the local King Protea mixed with blooms found in an english garden. There was something rustic and raw about the look that gave a natural whimsical feeling to this one of a kind wedding.
After the vows were read and the first kiss was shared, guests were eager to start the celebration with the specialty his, hers and theirs cocktails provided by Garnish Events. After sipping on the tasty libations, a constant flow of hor’doerves from Sugar Beach Catering were graciously accepted by the hungry party. Everyone mingled about, enjoying the pristine grounds of the West Maui estate before the bride and groom had their first dance as husband and wife. Of course, no wedding would be complete without something sweet! Grace and Thomas cut the unfrosted layer cake which was the most traditional moment in their wedding. Then it was back to the dance floor, this time with their guests joining them as they partied into the night celebrating their love!
