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!

Maui Wedding: Randi & Dylan

Randi and Dylan’s Maui wedding is a favorite of ours to look back on, from the beautiful, rich berry tone flowers by Mandy Grace Designs, to the décor, to the amazing images captured by the one and only Tamiz Photography. Randi’s bridal style was a focal point for this bohemian-inspired Hawaiian wedding day, her long sleeve, open-back wedding dress from One Day Bridal just looked stunning on her. The talented team at MeiLi Autumn Beauty created such a lovely look for our beautiful bride with romantic soft curls and magenta lips! We love how Randi’s floral headpiece added a fun bohemian touch! Her rich color palate of raspberry, magenta and blush with added greenery for texture created such bold statement for both ceremony and reception décor. With Maui as a backdrop, the floral and greenery-adorned arch was the perfect addition to the beautiful landscape for Randi and Dylan’s “I Do’s.” Dylan’s ocean blue suit turned out to be a great compliment to the overall décor as well. This wedding party exuded style and sophistication, which could not be more fitting for this amazing group of Australian and Americans. Maui was indeed the perfect middle ground for guests to travel from the US and Australia to celebrate the couple's LOVE. This stunning day truly was one for the record books—we love looking back at these great photos, take a peak below at a few of our favorites from their Maui wedding below!
