Olowalu Plantation House Wedding
Our Wedding Featured On Style Me Pretty
The founder and editor, Abby Larsen of Style Me Pretty said that she wants to “Marry this wedding!” ~ we take that as a huge compliment and of course find ourselves overjoyed to see the feature of our Maui Wedding on the front home page of the well loved wedding blog Style Me Pretty today.
I first met Kristine & Hisashi on a very exciting skype session in January 2011. Kristine, and American, met Hisashi while working in Tokyo. It was clear from the very beginning, that these two shared an intense love and enthusiasm for each other. Hisashi exhibited an extraordinary eagerness to marry the woman beside him, and the plan was to bring their families together in one place for the celebration. The couple chose Maui as the spot to seal the deal, and the planning began. The wedding planning went on hold for a bit after the March 11th, tsunami. Even riddled by frequent aftershocks, the two remained dedicated to the idea of marrying in Maui, not letting the events that had just unfolded affect their dedication to each other. Kristine’s style inspiration for the wedding was all about bright pastels, playful designs, and the idea of a wedding being a celebration of their union. The inspiration to use ribbons surfaced, and we ran with it. We personally crafted multi-colored ribbon table runners (much harder than they sound), curtains of ribbon for displayed photos of the couple, ribbon wrapped place card boards, the list goes on. It became such a crafty, love-filled event, we had the best time putting it all together! Gina Meola and her husband Marcus of Gina Meola Photography flew in from Arizona in to capture the event.
