It is not every day that I get to work with clients who share my eclectic and bohemian style. It was so much fun to challenge the traditional with every part of this wedding. The couple chose Waimea Valley as their venue for the lush botanical gardens and their dedication to keeping the grounds a nature preserve. They worked with the on-site caterer to create a menu that featured all local and organic ingredients. The bride wanted to include as many hand crafted elements as possible. All of the couple's friends and family (and us at Love Letter Weddings) pitched in to make the invitations, photo booth, centerpieces, escort cards, signage and bunting. My all time favorite was the toy animals the bride collected and spray painted gold for the guest favors. Each one had a satchel tied to its back with local Hawaiian candies inside. She told me that she wanted her guests to leave laughing. Between the DIY decorations and the musical talent of so many of the couple's friends you could truly feel the love in the air all night long!
