When I first laid eyes on this stunner of a shoot at Travaasa Hana, I nearly had to pick my jaw off the floor. No exaggeration, it's just that gorgeous. But when I saw that the talents of LaFleur Weddings and EventsSara DonaldsonTeresa Sena Design and Maui Sweet Cakes were behind the pretty, I wasn't surprised a bit. Because that dream team is most definitely capable of something this drop dead gorgeous. So this gallery? Worthy of some serious quality time. So make sure to spend some time right here.

From Sara Donaldson... Jill LaFleur + Sara Donaldson + Teresa Sena + Travassa Hana in Maui = perfection. The grounds at Travaasa Hana feature stunning pools with the view of ocean waves spilling over lava rock, rolling grasses leading down to the ocean, lush greenery, and horses gallivanting in nearby pasture.

We had so much fun playing with creative ideas, including Jill’s custom wedding dress made out of lace and fabric! (YES, she MADE the dress.) Teresa Sena (Teresa Sena Design) designed the floral arrangements, which made such a stunning statement. (The shoot really showcases Teresa's creativity and classic style.) Bella Rosa Resta’s jewelry (RueBelle jewelry) provided just the right flair for our Hawaiian bride. The inspiration shoot combines traditional Hawaiin culture with a fresh take on native flora. My newly purchased Hawaiian ukulele (purchased in Maui to round out my collection of musical instruments) even made its photography debut on set! Our groom also had quite a bit of fun singing and showing us his native ukulele skills!

Travaasa Hana is truly a little slice of heaven...and so is working with this top-notch team of vendors.
