When I saw wedding pictures from Rikshaw gal, Andrea...my jaw dropped over how beautiful she looked and every single detail! I just had to share with you.
here is andrea's story from her special day!
It was the most incredible wedding week we could have ever imagined. We dreamt about an intimate, warm wedding by the sea and once we saw the historic plantation house in Maui, we knew it was the perfect spot. We were so grateful to celebrate our nuptials with 50 of our closest family and friends! Because the backdrop was gorgeous, it didn't need a lot of decor. We kept things simple, loose and relaxed and added pops of pink from the flowers and fabric and the bridal party dresses that they picked out themselves. For a touch of Hawaiian romance, we had a ukulele musician play Hawaiian and modern songs during the ceremony. Pods of whales made their appearance by breaching in the background during our ceremony and throughout the cocktail hours. It was an amazing sight!
To personalize the day, we included details such as handmade escort cards that featured a photo of the guest from a time C and I spent together with the guest. Instead of solid color rental napkins, I picked out printed several coordinating batik fabrics and my fabulous mother-in-law sewed each napkin! Each of the dinner tables had a different napkin print and a circle of the fabric was included on the escort card, next to the guest's photo. The fabrics were also made into ribbons that adorned the aisle and the back of the bride and groom chairs.
We closed the night by dancing to a DJ under a huge magnolia tree that was strung with fairy lights and under the stars. It was all very dreamy and magical. My favorite part of the day was sharing our vows that we wrote for one another. Promising to spend the rest of our lives to one another in the most amazing place, surrounded by our nearest and dearest, is a memory I'll always cherish.
