Glam Tropical Fairmont Orchid Wedding

Saturday, 17 September 2016 18:06

Brett and Katie had a perfect modern tropical destination wedding all their friends and family at the Fairmont Orchid on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island. This wedding was so fresh with bold colors and Katie totally killed it in her Vera Wang wedding dress. But, let's talk about this arch. The couple's vision for color and statement design was perfectly executed by Sara Kam of Jots of Thoughts with florals by Grace Flowers. I think the purple bougainvillea was such a smart choice for total impact with out blowing the budget. It was such a treat to shoot photos with it as a backdrop. Hair and makeup perfectly done, as always, by Mara. I loved how the event was a really elegant twist on a Hawaiian holiday with a full luau meal and Polynesian entertainment for their many guests that came from around the country to celebrate with them. Congratulations to Brett and Katie.

This gorgeous couple had their Hawaii destination wedding on the beaches of the Kona Coast. Beth and Tyler had a lovely ocean side ceremony coordinated and designed by the fantastic Sara Kam of Jots of Thoughts. Sara and Beth designed a beautiful reception right in the heart of Kailua-Kona at Daylight Mind. I will share more soon of this beautiful wedding.
