Anna + Tyler's Maui destination wedding mixed the bride's Sicilian roots with the beauty of an olive farm making it one of our favorite celebrations to date. The autumnal and vibrant florals by Mandy Grace Designs were stunning. When it came to selecting the wedding location, the bride says, "Maui is gorgeous and it has so much history for Tyler and his family. I found pictures of an upcountry wedding and immediately knew that was what we would do. When our event planner, Lena of Belle Destination Events, shared her personal wedding venue of Calasa Olive Farm in Kula we fell in love. I have Sicilian heritage so it was a perfect representation of the two of us."
The couple's vision for the day was for it to be outdoor, romantic, and colorful. Sicilian tiles, the color of the venue and the natural beauty of Maui were the big inspirations. Anna says, "I wanted the colors to be saturated to capture the heat of the summer and the lush surroundings. We wanted the furniture materials to be organic--a lot of wood, stone and metal because that’s what Tyler works with everyday.
Mandy from Mandy Grace Designs did a wonderful job of bringing our vision of flowers to life. We were married during Dahlia season and I told her to go wild with the Dahlias - they’re my favorite flower. The deep red flowers are a particular favorite and were the inspiration for the accent color throughout the floral and table arrangements. I was especially enamored with the hanging installation over our dance floor, which was something I wanted from day one."
