We can spot a Beth Helmstetter celebration from a mile away. A little bit because we’ve been semi-stalkers of hers for a while now and tend to love everything that her group touches, but mostly because of the simply beauty behind every last detail. The way that she seemlessly integrates the most beautiful colors, textures and moments into the backdrop of the space so it seems as if they’ve been there forever and ever. So when we spotted this beauty, photographed by the talented Steve Steinhardt with stunning blooms by Holly Flora, we knew it was one we could gush over with ease. Oh and we’ve included the rehearsal dinner below too because while perfectly laideback and lovely, it is fab enough to be a wedding in and of itself! Click here to see even more.
From Kristin of Beth Helmstetter Events… We just love our Texas brides! You might be surprised to know that while based in California, we actually work with a lot of couples from the Lone Star State and we love them. Something about our attention to the tiniest of details while still producing luxurious celebrations draws them to our aesthetic and we couldn’t be happier! Tara was no exception to this. She was oh so sophisticated, discerning and had an eye for the finest touches. We had the pleasure of working with her and Kurt on their amazing Big Island wedding weekend last November and it is definitely one of our favorite destination wedding weekends to date.
Before we let you off to dive into the galleries, we thought you guys might also be interested in the absolutely gorgeous rehearsal dinner that Beth Helmstetter Events put together for the couple. In our opinion, it was wedding worthy from soup to nuts and perfect inspiration for rehearsal dinners and grand celebrations alike.
From Kristin of Beth Helmstetter Events… First up, we want to share their Aloha Party which took place in form of a Beach BBQ. Guests came, kicked off their shoes and feasted on a fusion of Hawaiian, Texas and Louisiana (the Groom’s stomping grounds) style BBQ. We had a full luau show with guests lounging right in the sand on Hawaiian quilts while drinking Mango Margaritas and Mai Tais. My favorite is that sunset…only in Hawaii will you find colors like that in nature! 85 of their closest family and friends traveled from Houston to Kona and shacked up at the Four Seasons Hualalai for a wedding weekend they will not soon forget.
