To say that I’m uhb-sessed with the O’Malley Photographers would be putting it lightly, I mean, just glance at this oh-so-tropical inspo and you’ll understand. Planned in the hands of Christina Hartman of Wildheart, it’s an inspiration that’ll transport you to a lush enchanted garden carefully curated with Maui Executive Catering Company treats and that oh-so-dreamy landscape that only Hawaii can offer. It’s a combination that’s got us dreaming of sandy shores and lovely lei’s, and you can see it all unfold here!
From Stylist/Florist, Christina Hartman of Wildheart…International film photographers, Scott and Ashlee O’Malley of O’Malley Photographers, perfectly capture the rich, tropical gardens of the Haiku Mill on Maui’s north shore in this island-inspired inspiration shoot. The historic ruins of the Mill are a perfect backdrop of vine draped stonewalls, lush enchanted gardens and carefully curated French antiques, creating a romantic but distinctly Hawaiian backdrop.
Deeply inspired by our island home and its diversity of flowers and foliage, my intent was to create something that had an authentic sense of place using materials that are growing abundantly here. Our usual ideas of tropical flowers are bright and colorful, but there are many softer hues that can be used with various foliage textures to soften the boldness of a tropical palette. Urns filled with soft peach and pink orchids, gingers, banana flowers, and coffee, layered with ferns create verdant arrangements when placed on an indigo handmade table runner filling a long farm table. Drawing inspiration from tradition and honor, we create a floral footbath of lovely hibiscus to nourish and calm the bride. Also, keeping with the Hawaiian tradition of a lei exchange, a triple strand of crown flowers adorns her.
