At the Halfway Point Between Their Two Hometowns, This Bride and Groom Said “I Do”

For this New Zealand Bride and her New Jersey Groom, getting married in Hawaii wasn’t just pretty, it was practical with its location halfway between both of their hometowns. With guests in all white, Keren stunned in a beaded blush gown, which made for beautiful beach photos on the beach at sunset. See every pretty detail from Moana Events, captured by Christie Pham Photography, in The Vault!

From The Bride…How and where did you meet? A mutual friend of ours asked a group of us to help him review a restaurant (he’s a food blogger) – that was the first time Adam and I met and we spent the whole night talking behind the back of the guy sitting between us – we were inseparable! Adam asked for my number at the end of the night and we went on a date the following Saturday and the rest is history!

How did he propose? At the Taj Mahal in India

From Moana EventsKeren from New Zealand, met Adam from New Jersey, while they were both living and working in Singapore. This fun-loving and well-travelled couple decided to have their dream Jewish destination wedding in Hawaii on the island of Oahu, which was the half way point between the bride and grooms hometowns. Loulu Palm Estate, which offers gorgeous oceanfront and mountain range views, was the perfect location that provided the tropical elements the couple wanted for their romantic wedding day.

In a private ceremony, before their wedding, Keren and Adam signed their Ketubah, a document that outlines the husband’s obligations to his wife, that they had specially made from Israel. Guests were asked to wear all white allowing the bride, who was stunning in a blush pink gown with sparkling embellishments, to truly be the center of attention. Keren and Adam provided specially made light pink yarmulkes, embroidered with a yellow and pink hibiscus flower, for the men to wear. In true Jewish tradition the couple was married under a wooden chuppah, adorned with creme and blush flowers and solidified their union with the breaking of glass. During cocktail hour, guests were able to choose from five cleverly named specialty drinks, including a “ Mazol Tov Mai Tai” and “Singapore Sunset.”

For the reception guest were invited to sit under a clear top tent partially draped in white silk fabric and adorned with crystal chandeliers hung from the ceiling. Guest tables were arranged in a “U” formation and decorated with blush tablecloths. The centerpieces included clear, textured glass and wooden vases that were filled with creme and blush flowers and accented by dark green foliage. The couple was married on the first day of Hanukkah and conducted a menorah lighting during their wedding reception. In honor of their Jewish culture, the couple and their guests danced the Hora and had the blessing of the challah by the rabbi. For dessert, guests were treated to Malasada’s, a delicious Hawaiian doughnut. Surrounded by loved ones, Keren and Adam danced the night away which was the perfect ending to their dream wedding.

These Red Lips + Chic Dresses Are Our New Beauty + Style Goals

The red lip. This dress. The views that legit cause gasps. All in one place; this Vault gallery is seriously stunning. Big props go out to Christine Clark for capturing it all for our viewing pleasure and to Passion Roots for giving us new bouquets to obsess over. All in all, this is our cup of tea if we do say so ourselves.

From Christine Clark… For this inspiration shoot we nestled ourselves high up on a Hawaiian hill with the ocean far below us. With golden hour glowing, and delicate Sarah Janks dresses from Lace & Love fluttering in the wind, the setting was both barren and lush, sweeping and intimate. The light from the setting sun brought out the rich warmth of the champagne toned gown, while the rosy florals created by Passion Roots married with the romantic blush of the lace gown. An elegant calligraphy set by Alley & Co. added extra grace and beauty to the affair, mirroring the soft lines of the dresses. With dusty golden light and murmuring wind, this session was one for romance and dreaming.

From Rebecca ArthursIan & Emalia’s elegant, romantic and natural wedding day was intertwined with strong family ties, love and culture. The day was colored by the striking blue water of Lanikai and the beautiful coastline. As a couple, Emalia & Ian love getting dressed up but are also low key as well which is why they chose to get married at Emalia’s family estate. It was the perfect place to hold this elegant wedding filled with many memories. The Mokulua Islands provided a stunning backdrop to the ceremony and cocktail hour. After Emalia danced a gorgeous hula for her new husband, there wasn’t a dry eye as Ian welcomed everyone to the backyard reception and listed the many qualities he loved about his new wife. Everyone felt right at home because it was!
