Can I brag? Just for a second? I woke up pretty excited to see that twitter had verified my account. That little blue checkmark isn’t easy to get! Who knew that a little blue checkmark would bring me such joy?  As an influencer in the wedding and event space, I am so thrilled to have this verification as an influencer in the wedding and event space.

Kualoa Ranch – Secret Island Luau Rehearsal Dinner

We LOVE planning and designing destination weddings!  We have had the privilege of working at some of the most beautiful places on earth – Mexico Beaches, The Bahamas, Japan and of course, in Napa Valley and the Northern California Wine Country.  For Suzy & Alek’s wedding we were asked to design a more modern take on a traditional luau rehearsal dinner.  But the day turned out to be such a fantastic destination wedding experience for the guests.  The guests started their day with a private day of games, lounging and playing in the ocean at the Kualoa Ranch Secret Island.

The event included all the traditional delicious foods created by Creations in Catering including kalua pork, lomi lomi salmon, poi, coconut cake and delicious mai tais!  It was a perfect afternoon and evening, even with the little bit of rain that just cooled everybody off.  The Hawaiian dancer was a perfect bit of entertainment for this really fun first night experience.  One of the best parts is that we finished relatively early in the evening so the bride, Suzy and her groom to be, Aleks could go back to their hotel and relax and be prepared for their wedding day.

If you’re looking an an awesome guest experience for your destination wedding, let us know!  We would love to help you create an amazing guest experience  for your destination wedding as well!

Color in Weddings & Events

The colors you choose for your wedding, for your brand and for your favorites reveal a lot about who you are and your deepest needs. This color personality test by The Colour Option is an easy reference guide to find the hidden language behind your personality.  Colorful weddings have become our signature style because we take clues from our couples and clients to create an event that fits their personalities.

One of the questions we always as our clients is…”What are your favorite colors or color combinations?” This gives us rich insight into who they are based on the use of color personality.

While some wedding couples go more toward the trends for their wedding colors, we prefer to infuse your personal favorites because it allows us as designers to create an event that speaks both to who you are and what you love.  Go ahead and try it – I’ll bet it’s pretty accurate for you as well.  It’s even more fun to try it on clients. 🙂

It’s shockingly accurate, also.  My favorite colors (right now) are turquoise and grey.  All of the descriptions speak to what I hear others say about me and how I feel about myself.
