Real Wedding: Stephanie + Adam

Stephanie and Adam’s picturesque wedding day was beautifully different than what you would expect from a Hawaiian wedding. This American and Aussie couple choose Hawaii for it’s perfect meeting point for their family and friends to come from all over the world! However, they didn’t choose Hawaii for its white sandy beaches, but rather The Villa at the Calasa Gulch Olive Tree Farm located on its stunning mountainside!

This romantic vineyard style location was perfect for their intimate wedding celebration, of 46 guests, to watch the couple walk down the aisle in a clearing amongst rows of olive trees! The celebration continued with a cozy food focused reception, with a family-style Italian meal, craft cocktails, and oven fired pizzas!

It was a joyful celebration with friends and family and we were so thrilled to be a part of creating their magical day! Take a look below at all of the gorgeous details from Stephanie and Adam’s Hawaiian mountainside wedding!

Real Wedding: Olivia + Michael

Reflecting back on Olivia and Michael’s magical day - brings us much inspiration for future oceanfront celebrations! From the incredible white sand beaches where the couple first met to the tropical inspired reception decor, this was an absolutely unforgettable day!

It was important to the couple to incorporate locally sourced flowers. Olivia, wore a beautiful, multiple strand Pikake flower lei which gracefully adorned her open back wedding  dress. The Pikake flower is from the jasmine family and is an incredibly delicate and heavenly fragrant flower. This flower lei was a favorite of Hawaiian princess Kaiulani and is believed to be a part of the old courtship ritual. The flower crown, and the couple's stunning floral arch, were all locally sourced flowers as well. The many mini pineapples  used for the groom and groomsmen boutonnieres as well as the reception décor was the perfect tropical touch!

One of the most special moments of the day had to be the hula dances performed by Olivia, her mother, cousins, and niece in honor of her late father - surprising Michael for a tear jerking reception! This beautifully heartwarming couple and family were a joy to work with and we at Belle Destination Events are so thrilled to have Olivia and Michael’s ocean front celebration featured on 100 Layer Cake, spreading their beautiful Hawaiian love story for all to be inspired by!  

Take a peek below at all of the gorgeous love filled details!

Great Start to 2012!

Good morning 2012!  Okay, yes... So we are a little belated.  But, we have been  busy little wedding planning bees, preparing for our first event of the new year.  We find ourselves in the gorgeous island of Hawaii – a.k.a. “The Big Island,” – for the wedding of Caroline & Phil.   This amazing couple is about to tie the knot at the luxurious Four Seasons Resort Hualalai.  It will be a 3-day event extravaganza, leading up to their wedding day, which will be one for the record books.  We have loved working with this American/Aussie pair since this past summer, and we could not ask for better clients.  We are looking forward to making their wedding day an unforgettable experience. We have an amazing team of Hawaii wedding vendors including the fabulous husband and wife wedding photography team Whitney and Jesse from Our Labor of Love flying in from Atlanta, Georgia, the beautiful girls of Bella Bloom Floral Boutique from Maui and incredible slack key guitarist LT Smooth, just to mention a few.  More photos and details to come soon.... Hau’oli Makahiki Hou!
