Maui Wedding: Laura & Marco

Laura and Marco’s stunning Maui wedding day was nothing short of spectacular. Located at a private estate on Maui’s South shore, the venue provided the perfect backdrop to their intimate ceremony and love-filled reception. Surrounded by their closest friends and family, Laura and Marco basked in the incredible emotion of this amazing moment and the joy was captured so perfectly in their gorgeous smiles. It takes just one look at these amazing photos to see how truly happy they are together.

We had so much fun with this overall design blending Laura’s aesthetic concepts – classic backdrops adorned with modern elements. Her floral style was very unique, as she loved compositions of modern groupings of florals, long stemmed callalilies, mirrors, and tons of glass. The color scheme was white with dramatic shades of pink – the spectrum swinging from blush to burgundy, complimented by green. Their gorgeous archway complimented with a unique assortment of greenery and composed blooms, rose petal carpets aisle, and the elegant chair backings were the perfect additions to the ceremony space. The staircase, accompanied by the dramatic tiered waterfall, was the most incredible entrance for the bridal processional and set the stage for an emotional ceremony. Bella Bloom created great depth and compositions with their florals for an overall sophisticated aesthetic. The brilliant Maui Maka Photography, who did an incredible job immortalizing this special occasion, captured every last detail and every last smile! Take a peak below at some of our favorite shots from this one of a kind Maui wedding.

Styled Engagement Shoot on Style Me Pretty

We are all so excited  to see our "Pin-Up Picnic" inspired engagement photo shoot featured on Style Me Pretty Destination yesterday!  This was an extremely fun shoot for a number of reasons ... As the newest member of the Belle team, I am thrilled to have been a part of this.  What made this shoot so special, is that we asked my younger brother JD and his girlfriend (at the time) Nicole, if they would like to participate.  I knew Nicole would enjoy getting her hair and makeup done and that JD would do whatever she wanted, so we had them booked.  The most exciting part is that JD really proposed to Nicole less than a week prior to the shoot, so their true emotions of excitement, love and joy were showing!  I am so thrilled to see these pictures by U Me Us Studios and to know we have captured an amazing moment for my family personally has been a great perk! The best part has begun; we have started planning their Maui wedding for September of 2014.  They struggled a bit choosing their location with so many beautiful venues on island, but in the end Merriman's Restaurant in Kapalua won!  We look forward to sharing more of their story with you!
