Kona Plantation Estates wedding, Tara & Ari

Ari proposed to Tara on New Year's morning, he woke Tara up and asked her , "Do you want to be Mrs. Pandas?". After her confusion from just having woken up faded, she said "yes!"

Ari and Tara chose a private rental home, Villa Quatro at Kona Plantation Estates with a amazing signature tree and panoramic ocean views situated on the slopes of Hawaii’s Hualalai volcano. Surrounded by native plants, and luscious vegetation, in the heart of coffee farmland. 

The wedding was beautifully designed & coordinated by Vintage and Lace, creating a timeless and intimate event, perfect for a charming classic wedding.

Ari's dad wasn't able to make the trip to Hawaii for the wedding, but he did join us through a Skype session, he even participated in the family photos! The family celebrated with a toast and his father, though thousands of miles away, was able to be a part of his sons special day!

Hapuna Prince wedding, Chao & Yang

I met Chao & Yang for the first time on their wedding day, getting ready in their room at the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. Wow. Chao looks like she just stepped out of a vintage issue of Vogue. She’s gorgeous with dark hair & sparkling eyes. And to top it off, she has a classy style that perfectly balances the classic with the bold. Meeting Chao in person was the confirmation that she is perfect for Yang. Chao is creative, calm, strong, smart, and knows resolutely what is most important to her. And there was no better illustration of all these things than on her wedding day.

Chao & Yang, thank you for inviting us to be part of your wedding day. It was truly a beautiful experience.
