Kukio Beach Wedding ~Big Island Wedding Hawaii

Anne and Eric decided to tie the knot on the beautiful shores of the Big Island because it is a place welcoming of many diverse cultures. Anne is French and Eric, American, and their beautiful daughter, well she is just a perfect mix of their two cultures speaking a little bit of both languages at just over 2 years old! I knew Anne, being the fashion savvy French woman that she is, would choose something chic and elegant  for her attire and she didn’t disappoint with her sharp Zac Posen dress and bright tangerine heels. I wanted to give them a little bit of an extra wow factor in their decor that would match their cosmopolitan style and these air plants were the perfect edgy element to take the beach decor to the next level. Congrats to a darling family!                                             –Rachael Halpern, Owner/Wedding Specialist

What a fabulous location for an intimate wedding! And they make a lovely family.

Waikoloa Beach Marriott Wedding ~ Vintage & Lace

Bob and Erin were such a charming and sweet couple and a genuine pleasure to work with! I knew from the start they would need a wedding location that would match their personalities: carefree, unassuming, glowing, and serene. This sweet little spot at a resort on the Kohala Coast was just right. Sometimes a resort is the perfect option and I am always available and happy to help any couple planning a big or small wedding find the perfect resort location for them and do my best to help them find the right match that meets all their wedding needs. I always stress to couples that just because you are planning a wedding at a resort, doesn’t mean you don’t need an outside professional wedding planner. I know the ins and outs of all the Big Island resorts and can save a couple hours upon hours of time tracking down the right match for them, figuring out pricing, and comparing all the options. Bob and Erin are the perfect example of how an outside planner can help you find the right resort, save you tons of time and even some money too!         -Rachael, Owner

South Kona Wedding ~Hawaii Ethnobotanical Garden Wedding

Weddings on the Big Island of Hawaii can occur in any number of diverse landscapes. This couple chose a beautiful and lush ethnobotanical garden for their wedding venue filled with native Hawaiian plants and exotic beauty. A very vintage couple at heart, this setting and the attire and decor they chose led to a very unique and beautiful wedding style.

Honuala’i, Sullivan Estate Wedding ~ Missing Piece and the Big O Theme

This unique wedding design was inspired by the book, “The Missing Piece Meets the Big O”. The bride’s main request for us in designing this wedding was that we incorporated the book and that everything be as unique and as different as possible, while still being tasteful and romantic. When working on the design, I wanted to come up with elegant ways to incorporate the circle and triangle shapes found in the book. I chose flowers, like the scabiosa pods, air plants, and anemones, that reflected these shapes and added interesting textures to the bouquets and centerpieces. I also wanted to bring in an organic and natural feeling that would blend well with the outdoor venue and the couple’s love of nature and keep in line with their chosen color scheme of dark brown and emerald green. So, I chose moss rocks and polished rocks as organic accents and place markers.  The bride also has a love for crystals and wanted to bring in some crystal elements that would match her crystal covered gown. The chandeliers, speciality water glasses, and sparkly spheres added this element and contrasted well with the other raw accents. For the cake, I knew I wanted to do a triangle because it is so rarely seen and would really take an otherwise ordinary cake to the next level! We even had the cake painted with luster dust to give it a bit of sparkle as well. We custom designed a cocktail for the party called The Big O that was a big hit and finally, the bride’s guilty pleasure is donuts so we did a creative dessert display of whole donuts, “the big o’s” and donut holes, “the missing pieces”, to tie back in to the theme. The couple was thrilled with the design and I have to say, it was really a very fun wedding to create!

Hi there

I am getting married on 8 September this year at Puakea Ranch and am looking into event styling services. There will only be 15 people attending so very small. I have created a Pinterest page with my inspiration and theme.

Both the ceremony and reception will take place on the ranch and I have my own photographer arranged.

Can you please provide me a quote or something to work off?
Thank you
