Dorothy+Anh-Vu’s Wedding Highlights @ Lanikuhonua

The stunning backdrop of Lanikuhonua (“Where Heaven Meets the Earth”) sets the tone for our first destination wedding couple of 2012, Dorothy & Anh-Vu.  The happy couple traveled from Seattle, Washington to exchange their vows and were surrounded by their family and friends who also flew in to be a part of their wedding celebration!  The weather was heavenly and everyone embraced the ambiance of this beautiful estate rich with its natural beauty and history known to be a tranquil retreat and playground for Hawaiian royalty.

As guests arrived for the ceremony they were not only greeted with a breathtaking view on a sunny day but also offered a refreshing beverage!  There were high-top cocktail tables perfectly placed throughout the grounds decorated with floating candles and pretty proteas & orchids for guests as they enjoyed cocktails and yummy appetizers while watching the sunset after the ceremony.  Displayed nicely at the “Eat, Drink & Be Merry” table were glass picture frames that cleverly doubled as escort cards and favors which guests could use to put their favorite photo booth picture inside as a keepsake.  Our gorgeous Frame Room backdrop selected by Dorothy & Anh-Vu provided the perfect complement.

The reception tables were all beautifully dressed in linen set with menus tied with pink & brown ribbon at each place setting with an uniquely shaped piece of driftwood surrounded by an arrangement of candles, orchids, white & peach roses, and pink anthuriums made for a lovely centerpiece.  And, a bottle of “bubbly” champagne graced each table to celebrate the couple’s special day all under a clear canopy with hanging lanterns and lights which added to the romantic setting.  Several stations were also set-up a few yards away with delicious food including a shaved ice station.

Smiles and laughter filled the air with lots of memory-making in the photo booth and dancing music kept everyone entertained throughout the evening.  Congratulations to Dorothy, Anh-Vu and their guests who set a new record for the picture taken with the most people in our booth at one time!  The new record to beat is 20!  We had such a great time and happy you did too!  Please feel free to visit us on Facebook where you can tag and comment on all the fun photos.

A special shout out goes to coordinator Diana Caro-Salvador of Oahu Weddings, her team and all of the vendors for the awesome job they did!  Thank you Frank Amodo for the “hook-up” and your support!

Best wishes and congratulations again to Dorothy & Anh-Vu!  We wish you, your family and friends a safe journey back home . . .

With much aloha,

Val & Kim 🙂
