Pretty Little Details - When Vendors Work Their Magic
Back in August when cake life was particularly hectic with all the summer weddings, we made this 6-tier fondant unusually shaped ivory, purple and gold wedding cake for one of our couples. This extravagant wedding was a last minute RUSH event which all the hired vendors had less than 3 weeks to pull it all together. This was no small feat. Thank goodness for the coordinator/event designer extraordinaire, Mona Hirata and her team with Weddings by Grace & Mona who worked long hours with the couple and all the vendors to create a spectacular event!
Special thanks to Yvonne Floral Design for the images!
Flowers galore! Yvonne designed these absolutely gorgeous tall centerpieces dripping with crystals for added bling.
Yvonne and Alex of Yvonne Floral Design worked their magic on the room with custom linens, purple/pink lighting and beautiful draping throughout the room. What a fantastic team they are!
The centerpiece on the parents' table. The custom name cards, table cards, and other paperie were made by the super talented Stacey of Emi Ink. Her work is exquisite!
The "N & D" monogram projected onto the dance floor was another special addition to the wedding created by Yvonne Floral Design. For this event, the cake was placed on the dance floor for everyone to enjoy! Other vendors working their magic, included The JW Marriott Ihilani where the wedding took place, Angel De Armas on Cinematography, and Blue Cheese Hawaii provided the couple's photobooth. Who says you can't have a little fun in a room full of elegance. The vendors who contributed to this wedding are people we work with regularly and we're thankful to be surrounded with such talent here in Hawaii.
Tomorrow we will have much to be thankful for as we observe Thanksgiving. We're thankful for our families and friends, good health, our relationship, and the support of our community. We're thankful for the creative process and that we can do something we love and be surrounded and inspired by talented people every week. Rick and I are thankful to all of you for supporting our blog and the comments you've left and letters you have sent us. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
