I mentioned in our last post that the reception from today’s affair was beautiful…but I am just not sure that the word beautiful does it justice. It’s spectacular, truly and utterly spectacular!

From Evonne, the incredible designer behind the affair…Michelle selected some of my favorite wedding colors – blush, peach and burgundy.  She wanted the wedding to look romantic, and her style was simple yet elegant.  To tie in with her vision, we decided to use this beautiful canvas tent with the 3 crystal chandeliers in the middle.  Outside the tent were little gold lanterns hanging around the perimeter for added ambiance.  It is the only Raj Tents in Hawaii.

We also incorporated a lot of elements that were Henry’s favorite.  For one, he loves coffee… so for some of the smaller centerpieces, instead of putting orchids in the water, we filled the vases with coffee beans.  At the end of the reception, we put all those coffee beans in a bag and Henry took it with him.  Hopefully he is still enjoying his morning coffee everyday!

More on the way including a ridiculous giveaway later today!
