Vintage lace & birch arbor ceremonies in hawaii

I am in love with lace. We have been sewing it for runners, table overlays, chair ties & ceremony arbors. Here are a few of our birch & rustic vintage lace ceremony arbors draped with a pretty feminine delicate lace. Most of these birch arbors are 7-8 ft. tall & we have adjustable cross bars to make it any size for your wedding ceremony.

Sunset Ranch April 26, 2014

One of my favorite ranch wedding settings is on the North Shore of Oahu at Sunset Ranch. The beauty up there is so peaceful & calming. The majestic mountains & backgrounds are so inspiring to me. Emily & Stephen’s wedding in the spring happened on a super rainy weekend. Although we had to move the ceremony inside, it made the reception even cozier in the barn at the ranch. Much thanks to photographer Rachel Robertson who shared these photos with us.

Wedding Teepees

Posted by admin on Apr 30, 2013 in rentals, teepees, Vintage, vintage rentals

I just designed a new line of wedding teepees that we are in love with! The ideas & colors are unlimited!!  We are now offering these teepees for set up at your wedding receptions or party. Children love them & they offer a great photo op for your guests or a quiet bohemian lounge get-away area for couples. This beautiful white sheer ” Ocean Cottage Lace” has a very eterical look & has a pretty lace boarder sewn around the edges. The sheep skin fur rug & pillows add for an inviting lounge area. I am sewing a very pale blush pink one that will be ready at the end of June! The 2nd photo is our “Beach Blush Vintage Lace” teepee with lots of ruffle fabric & lace.  I  have a smaller children’s size teepee in sea glass aqua blue or a shabby chic pink & grey. I am currently sewing a very soft buttery carmel color. All of our teepees include rugs, pillows, & lighting. Stay tune for more teepees in paradise!!

A Bohemian Vintage Seaside Wedding

What a lovely set up this was that we designed at the historical Bayer Estate. I created a vintage inspired  floral & candle display with vintage votives, candles & vases of garden roses, antique hydrangeas & wax flower filler. We created a separate Bohemian lounge area close to the ocean/ beachside for  Miho & Akiyoshi’s  guest  lounging & photos.  Thirty minutes before the event was to end the State of Hawaii issued a Tsunami warning due to the earthquake in Canada & all beachside areas had to be safely evacuated.  I will update this blog with more photos as they come in. All of our vintage/ bohemian details are available for rental.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I wanted to remind everyone that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  I will be making a 10% donation on all orders from my brides who order any PINK Bridal Bouquets for the month of October until the end of the year ( 2012). My sister is a breast cancer survivor & we celebrated  by  enjoying a wonderful spa treatment at the amazing Spa Grande at the Grand Wailea Resort in Maui.  We  attended the Spa’s opening night for Breast Cancer Awareness month while at the resort. The Maui Fire Department had these cute Pink MFD T-shirt’s  that all  the Maui firemen will be wearing for the month of October to bring awareness & raise money for Breast cancer. The firefighters already have raised more than $9,000. from the sale of the T-shirts & proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. MFD really rocks!!!!! Please enjoy a few of my PINK  bridal bouquets & let’s all work together to stamp out breast cancer!!
