From Wendy Laurel… Heidi and Josh came from Minnesota for their “#mauisota” wedding (as they hashtagged it). These guys love to travel, to drink wine, to eat gelato and explore. A destination wedding was the perfect wedding day for them and their friends and family. I loved Heidi’s style and especially loved her wedding dress and the lace sleeves — so beautiful. They incorporated the travel theme into their wedding invitations and the guest gifts were gorgeous leather luggage tags. Of course, of all their adventures, they both agree that Love is the Greatest Adventure of All.

We’re here today to give major kudos to the talented vendor team behind this big day. For not only did Unveiled Hawaii and Maui’s Angels manage to pull off a last minute wedding, BUT they also made sure that Tropical Storm Darby didn’t dampen the day. And for that? We say THANK YOU, because this Maui designed day is everything. Captured by Wendy Laurel it’s all waiting for you in The Vault!

From Wendy Laurel… When you’re a very busy wedding planner and stylist, what do you do when your brother asks you to plan a very last minute wedding and then the day of the wedding a tropical storm hits? Make it an exceptional day of course. Lorrie from Unveiled Hawaii and Maui’s Angels did just that during Tropical Storm Darby in July. Her brother, Tom, and his fiance Eva recently moved to Maui with their baby girl and Tom’s son and decided to get married last minute when all the family was coming to Maui for vacation. Lorrie planned and styled a gorgeous family only wedding at Merrimans Kapalua. The weather had other plans, and tropical storm Darby hit Maui the morning of the wedding. Merrimans provided a cabana for the ceremony on the ocean side deck and Lorrie and her team had it looking elegant and gorgeous in no time. As luck would have it, after the ceremony and family shots, the weather cleared just enough to all a few oceanfront photos of the very happy bride and groom.

“From the blue sky and ocean, to the golden sun
and vibrant palm trees, Hawaii was everywhere“
Rich hues of blue reflect the Groom’s career
in the Navy and their shared love of the sea
From Wendy Laurel…The bride and groom are Kate and Chris who are both originally from Alaska. Chris is in the Navy and the couple lives here on Oahu now. Chris has a love of naval architecture and Kate is a talented artist. Their wedding details and style reflected all these elements.
Kate chose rich blues for the color of her wedding to reflect the Navy and their shared love of the sea. Bright and deep colored florals accented the hand dyed muslim blue tablecloths. Chris’s love for naval architecture was shown off in the naval blue prints included in the invitation suite and hung at the reception. Kate’s artistic talents created the hand drawn invitations, table favors, table numbering, and signs throughout the reception. Touches of Alaska were included as well such as Kate’s Dad’s antlers from hunting in Alaska. And of course Hawaii was everywhere from the blue sky and ocean to the golden sun and the vibrant palm trees.
