Next Featured Wedding Sneak Peek - Leslie and Rocky

January's Featured Wedding on cakelava.com starts 2009 off with Leslie and Rocky's BIG, opulent, purple and white/black checkerboard BLING-ed out extravaganza wedding at Lanikuhonua on Saturday, November 1, 2008. Lanikuhonua's most extravagant wedding required a 2-day set up time. 2-days to set up, 500 guests, multiple tents and outside lounge areas, custom ice sculptures by Iceculture, Inc. out of Canada, security detail, a big wedding cake and groom's cake, and a Hawaii vendor list to drool over, starting with the team responsible for coordinating this amazing event, Weddings by Grace & Mona.
Leslie and Rocky were an obvious choice for us to feature. This fun-loving couple's wedding was the perfect blend of over-the-top elegance combined with a playful black and white checkerboard racing car theme, and some serious bling thrown in for good measure. One look at the fabulous images captured by Chrissy Lambert Photography, you'll see this is a couple who doesn't take themselves too seriously and fun is definitely the name of the game!
I'll never forget when we first met with Leslie and Rocky and they arrived at our studio in a vehicle almost too large for the parking space. Rick and I were looking out our window seeing if they would fit. Not only was the vehicle large with big wheels, it was tall. They were funny, sweet and down to earth, and looking forward to their wedding. Little did they know just how awesome it would be ...
