Next Featured Wedding Sneak Peek - Christina and Steve
All images courtesy of Absolutely Loved: Stefanie & Anna Riedel
Christina and Steve's wedding at the Loulu Palm Estate on the North Shore was one of our first weddings of 2009 and it sure was a pretty one. It was an obvious choice as a Featured Wedding on cakelava.com because it was stylish and beautiful, incorporated the bride's Greek heritage, and brought together many top-notch vendors we love working with. Christina and Steve chose a white color palette, and brought in accent colors such as celadon green and brown, which added a modern, tropical touch to their wedding. The always fabulous Sandra Williams of Finishing Touch coordinated and designed their event, along with florist Yvonne of Yvonne Design, Troy Michael of DJ Entertainment, catering by Chef Elmer Guzman at Catering Connection, and cakelava for the wedding cake. Photographer Stefanie Riedel of Absolutely Loved was there to capture every moment shared by the couple and their guests. Stefanie seemed like a perfect match for Christina and Steve, with her artful, romantic style, the images were absolutely gorgeous!
The Loulu Palm Estate provided the breathtaking ocean-front views, perfect for this romantic and affectionate couple. Christina and Steve's wedding reception is being showcased on the Loulu Palm Estate website as well, but doesn't include their colorful traditional Greek ceremony held at the St. Constantine and Helen's Greek Orthodox Church, which is definitely worth a look!
For Christina and Steve's cake, we went mostly white with dark brown and celadon green accents and incorporated a star pattern found on their paperie. Rick did an exquisite job on their cake and it was a strong focal point at the wedding. It was clear our couple LOVES chocolate, and chose our Hot Fudge Sundae and Kona Toffee Crunch (with chocolate cake of course) for their flavor.
Now for the girly stuff. Christina's wedding gown was made by designer Claire Pettibone , and her Dolce and Gabbana shoes definitely made a statement! Congratulations to Christina and Steve! See more of Christina and Steve's wedding on cakelava.com, coming soon!
