You really can’t go wrong with a Hawaiian beach wedding. I’ve been to one and the magic is just there… I think it’s all in the sunsets. White Orchid’s Plantation House is now officially (you hear that? Officially.) my favorite Hawaiian locale ever, thanks to this stunner from Wendy Laurel. It’s so gorgeous I’ve been rendered speechless.

From the photographer… John and Sue live in Hong Kong with friends and family all over the globe. Where better to get married than in Maui… gorgeous and a central location to everyone. They chose an elegant wedding set at a beautiful plantation house on the south shores of Maui.

There are rehearsal dinners, and then there is this amazing day captured by Alison White Photography, which can only be described as the most fun you’ve ever had, all wrapped up in some crazy gorgeous scenery. I’m talking a stunning Flora Farms setting hosting lawn games, face painting and all kinds of yummy cotton candy (my favorite). See every joy-filled moment right here in the full gallery.
From Alison White Photography… Most people who get married in Mexico choose a beachside location, and Heather and Matt were no exception. However, for the rehearsal dinner they moved inland and chose Flora Farm for a daytime picnic celebration. Flora Farm is an organic farm, grocery, restaurant, and bar, which also hosts unique and intimate private events.
Heather and Matt aptly named their picnic “Fun on the Farm” as they planned a myriad of activities to keep guests of all ages occupied and entertained. There were yard games such as bocce ball, potato sack races, horseshoes and croquet, as well as hula hooping, face painting and even a caricature artist.
They enjoyed several signature cocktails such as carrot margaritas and the farm julep, and the menu reflected a casual barbeque with local Mexican flair. For dessert, the guests chose from homemade peanut brittle, kettle corn, cupcakes, caramel apples and frozen paletas – a Mexican popsicle.
Heather and Matt created a wonderful event that allowed their friends and family to relax and enjoy a different feeling in Mexico. It was a wonderful precursor to their wedding, which was held on the beach the following evening.

If it were up to me, I’d have a photographer follow me around every beautiful day in my life (the bad hair days, she could skip). So the idea of a love sesh in Mexico after the big day, is one I’m completely on board with. Ashley Kelemen Photography followed the loveliest of loves around the small village of Rosarito (which, by the way, is gorgeous) and the result is super stunning!

Lillian & Mardy had their wedding in Malibu, close to family and friends, but really wanted to celebrate in Mexico, where they fell in love. Mardy’s family has a home in the small village of Rosarito, surrounded by cobblestone streets and beautiful views. Lillian asked Sweet Marie Designs to make some special florals for color and romance. We spent the afternoon there as a delayed day-after session, exploring the town and reliving special moments. Mardy is an avid surfer, so we made sure to tie in his love of the ocean before wrapping up with the most beautiful sunset.
