"two birds" in black and white
Congratulations are in order for our couple Heather and Randall, whose October 6, 2007 wedding is being featured in the latest issue of Hawaii Bride & Groom Magazine. Heather and Randall's wedding was previously featured on our website which is now archived on our myspace page.
We loved their theme of "two birds" which was a song that Heather came across on iTunes that she had downloaded by accident, and when she listened to it, it sparked the idea of all things wedding. All the details of the black and white event were planned to work around the theme. Heather and Randall let the vendors run with their theme and gave few if any artistic limitations. Rick created the black and white fondant cake of their dreams, incorporating the graphic of the two birds found on their invitation and black and white handcrafted romantic flowers and playful sprays of edible beads on wires to add a whimsical element. For the inside of their cake, they wanted to have some bold color and chose vibrant Rainbowlicious and Banana Nutella.
The wedding was done in high style and perfectly planned by Mona Hirata of Weddings by Grace & Mona. Heather's gown was by Carolina Herrera and her sash was by Monique L'huillier. It complemented her patent white and platinum Jimmy Choos pefectly! Randall swore that his suit had to cost just as much as her dress so he wore a pinstripe suit by Armani. Fong at Floral Inspirations did the black and white floral designs and BBJ supplied the linens. All photos are courtesy of Christiaan Phleger and Lexi Mackenzie.
