    I love love love your reception and ceremony set-up...so beautiful!!! When we started planning a DW, my FI and I always said that we wanted the ceremony with the beach as a background. This was non-negotiable, but I would leave the beach behind to have the set up you had for your ceremony. Congratulations to you both!

      It was really difficult to give up the idea of a beach ceremony, but I had wanted a backyard reception rather than a restaurant or a resort. It was hard to reconcile these two desires, and logistically it just worked out better to have the ceremony on the property. It was so beautiful I didn't even miss the sand and waves!

                Hey girl,

                Thanks so much for posting this review. You're wedding pics are awesome. Even though I leave for Kauai in less than a month (yikes!), it's still helpful to read. I'm not that fussed on the little details, but I have to say, without my WC, I'd be so overwhelmed! We also had a hard time finding a location. We wanted to have a the ceremony in a backyard that bordered on the beach. We visited Kauai in Sept, looked at a few places, and discussed which one we liked on the way home. By the time we landed, the location we decided on was booked! We ended up finding a place in Kilauea on a bluff over looking the ocean. But it sure was a headache to find! So, to any Kauai brides out there, if you find a place you like, book it right away.

                I'm flying US Airways from Orlando to Kauai. It sucks that the most conveinent airline isn't very good. I've seen bad reviews about them before. Did you have your dress steamed/pressed when you got there?

                I'm going to have to post something similar when I get back, especially since we're using totally different vendors from yours. There just aren't enough Kauai brides out there, so I agree, we should help each other out.

                Thanks again for sharing!

                    Thanks for all the comments! Like I said before, I really can't take credit for that much of it, our wc Diana Gardner did an amazing freaking job! That woman knows her flowers, and she did the tent poles, the altar, and the centerpieces w/ just herself and a couple helpers. I really wish she could've done our bouquets, too, because her taste and style are phenomenal!

                    I can't wait to see the future Hawaii weddings!!
