You might want to pack your bags in a second! There’s no denying that Hawaii is a beautiful slice of island paradise – add a group of talented wedding professionals into the mix and you have all the makings of the ultimate, romantic escape, showcased in this enchanting photoshoot at the Four Seasons Hualalai! The florals by Bliss In Bloom, who also planned and styled this editorial, are so captivating. We were immediately smitten with the hanging floral chandelier, fashioned as a gorgeous backdrop for the ceremony. The organic tablescape by Set Maui was masterfully layered with elegant details, rich, beach-inspired hues and gold accents. Destination brides can also find wonderful style inspiration here to cover every moment of the celebration with gorgeous looks for the ceremony, reception and the honeymoon. Our thanks Bonphotage for these stunning images!
From Bonphotage: There are seaside weddings in Hawaii, and then there are breathtaking views at the Four Seasons Hualalai captured on film, by Bonphotage. This surreal setting with a giant oak tree was the most romantic setting for an inspired bridal shoot and will make you feel like you stepped in to a fairy tale!
The mauve and green color palette perfectly complemented the soft sand and ocean view. Bliss in Bloom blew our minds with a collection of orchids and succulents having between the two trees and creating a perfectly framed setting for the ceremony. The bride wore two looks by Pas De Deux – a soft a romantic off-the-shoulder gown for her ceremony and a more playful bohemian lace look for the reception.
The tablescape included mismatched chairs covered in delicate foliage. The table was adorned with greenery, lush blooms in pink, green and ivory and taper candles, also trimmed with fragile ivy. It’s all in the details! Some of our favorite accents were the starfish placed on each table setting with guests’ names in hand calligraphy by Fine Lines Calligraphy. The romantic silk ribbon incorporated into the gorgeous bouquet also added an airy elegance.
After saying “I do,” the gorgeous couple took a walk along the beach for a moment to themselves and we were able to capture their emotions and sentimental interaction. It’s basically everything you’ve ever wanted your wedding to be WITH a side of sunshine!
The next day, the bride slipped out in her honeymoon bikini and veil to capture some sexy boudoir images on the black lava rocks for a little something special to give her favorite guy!
