Wedding in Paradise

January 28th, 2013 by Karen Pan | Comment

We recently had the pleasure of coordinating a private wedding on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. The wedding took place at the luxurious Halekulani Hotel with the clear, blue ocean and Diamond Head as the backdrop. The bride chose a stunning palette of Tiffany blue, orchid green and brown which worked perfectly for the setting. The wedding had all the island flare with a traditional Hawaiian ceremony, Tahitian dancers and tropical fusion menu. We were in paradise and just can’t wait to return again for our next destination wedding!


Cindy and Andy: Nestledown

I first met Cindy and Andy by chance when they were looking for wedding venues. But I quickly realized that we had so much in common; it was fate. As high school sweethearts, the couple wanted a celebration reflective of their love story and Nestledown in Los Gatos was the perfect backdrop for their fairy tale wedding. Guests were first escorted down to a cathedral of redwoods for the intimate ceremony. For cocktails everyone enjoyed sweet potato fries (in honor of the bride), train rides among the breathtaking property and spectacular views of the koi pond. Their first dance took place under glittering chandeliers in the beautiful barn and guests danced the night away.  It was a magical and tender day because of their undeniable sweet love for each other. And we feel so honored that we got to be a part of it. Congratulations Cindy and Andy!

Shelley and Eric are two of the most stunning people I’ve ever met, both inside and out. They are easy going, incredibly humble and caring and it’s no wonder why they fell in love with each other. The couple envisioned a simple, classic elegance for their wedding that highlighted their faith and appreciation for their family and friends. Their wedding day was like it came straight out of a storybook full of romance, intimacy and heartfelt love for all who came. And it couldn’t have been a more perfect day for a more perfect couple! Congratulations love birds!


Renee and Nic’s Same Day Edit: Mountain Winery

Since the first time I met Renee and Nic, I found them to be very charming, down-to-earth and adventurous. They’re avid mountain bikers and even leading up to the wedding day Renee was going on extreme rides. So the Mountain Winery in Saratoga served as the perfect backdrop for their wedding celebration where they shared their personal vows overlooking the city. With such a love for life, they share an even more immense love for each other and Martin Vo Studios captured the magic of the day perfectly. Wishing you both a lifetime of more adventures to come, congratulations Renee and Nic!

Hanson and EunMi share the ultimate American success story. Shortly after they got married 4 years earlier in Vegas they decided to go into the restaurant business and started the now famous Cha Cha Sushi in San Jose. After much success and 2 beautiful kids the couple decided to renew their vows with almost 300 of the family and friends at the Ranch Golf Club in San Jose this past March. We had only 4 months to plan but just like everything they touch their big day was a huge hit! Their wedding was true celebration of their incredible journey, current successes and future adventures ahead. Congratulations to Hanson and EunMi!
