Next Featured Wedding Sneak Peek - Annie and Eric

Our next Featured Wedding couple, Annie and Eric, probably didn't realize that shortly after we heard their choice of venue for the wedding, The Pacific Aviation Museum on historic Pearl Harbor's Ford Island, we started considering them as a feature on cakelava.com. Just having a plum, unusual venue does not guarantee a spot as a Featured Wedding, all the right components have to fall in place, and indeed they did. Starting with first and foremost, a sweet couple, Annie and Eric, who we took an instant liking to. Then came the A-list of vendors which included Dave Miyamoto and Russ Ramos of Dave Miyamoto & Company, floral designer Debbie Hemingway of Designs by Hemingway, coordinator Dianna Shitanishi of Hawaii Weddings and Events, and cakelava for their beautiful brightly colored floral wedding cake and the P-3 Orion groom's cake. The couple chose the uncoventional venue to get married because Eric is in the Navy (see his P-3 Orion groom's cake in yesterday's blog) and they wanted to do something different. Their wedding was unique in a number of ways. They had a very short engagement period (around 6 months), it was a traditional jewish wedding, and they were married under one of the airplanes on display.
Annie and Eric had 3 photographers to capture their special day -- Dave Miyamoto, Russ Ramos and Dave's son who works in film and was in town visiting for Dave's own wedding the week before Annie and Eric's. The three of them worked their magic, as they always do and presented us with a plethora of beautifully shot images to share.
Annie and Eric chose bright, bold pinks, oranges, yellows and ivories for their wedding colors, and a tropical theme or should I say a tropical-aviation theme. It worked beautifully! Rick designed their wedding cake to include an array of gorgeous handcrafted tropical flowers cascading down the cake. It was a soft and feminine touch next to the airplane groom's cake. A perfect balance just like Annie and Eric!
Annie and Eric are flying high as newlyweds and we wish them both the very best!
