A Traditional Outdoor Destination Wedding in Hawaii
The Los Angeles-based couple chose Lanikuhonua, a historical estate in the bride's native Oahu, for their wedding location. Decorated with a variety of thrift shop finds, their wedding was the perfect combination of new and old.
Draped with the leis they exchanged during their nuptials, the couple take to the sand for photos.
The Flower Girl
The flower girl's basket was brimming with orchids and roses.
The ring bearer carried a rustic nest and wore a leaf lei.
King protea, sea holly, succulents, red cone ginger, and cymbidium orchids are nestled in stained pine boxes.
Puamana, a beloved island trio, delight guests with Hawaiian classics during the ceremony and cocktail hour.
Courtney designed the suite around an Ernst Haeckel drawing of a jellyfish and an illustration from sheet music to "Honolulu Moon."
Mahogany chiavari chairs were placed on the lawn in front of the ocean. "No other decor was necessary," says the bride.
