Joe & Kiera’s White Hawaiian Wedding by Infinity Photography

Joe and Kiera are both well known lifestyle coaches from the East Coast but decided on an intimate elopement on the island of Maui set for November 5, 2014. It was truly a magical time for all involved as the light and love between them really came through. They stayed at the beautiful Fairmont Kea Lani Hotel in Wailea and exchanged vows on the lovely white sands of Polo Beach. Makamae Murray offered a traditional Hawaiian Wedding Ceremony with lei exchange and chanting. Joe and Kiera took their time speaking sweet personal vows to each other encircled by a handful of friends and a very talented ukulele player. After the ceremony, they enjoyed a gorgeous South Maui sunset and a didjeridoo blessing offered by Jol Countryman Miller of Jol Didjeridoos. They finished the night off at an intimate dinner for two at the lovely Ko Restaurant at the Fairmont Kea Lani truly enjoying one another on their special day.

Something Blue by Infinity Photography, Hawaii

logo

Thanks to much to Desiree of Infinity Photography Hawaii for sharing this thoughtful and symbolic shoot with us. Did you know the meaning of the time-honored phrase? I have to admit, I didn’t! I learned a lot – read on, and see how you can incorporate this historical rite of passage into your wedding – or the wedding of someone you love!

“Something Old, Some New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, a Sixpence in Her Shoe” is a timeless wedding tradition that is still celebrated in the wedding scene today but often times is rushed into the “getting ready” portion of the day. Back in the 1800’s in the Americas, this was a moment held between the women and the bride to wish her well before becoming a wife. All of the gifts were to be worn throughout the wedding and during her life as a reminder of the love & support shown by the women that love and cherish her the most. The gifts themselves carry meaning as well as the women presenting these gifts. I created this shoot as an offering to brides to take this moment with the women that are a part of your wedding and allow this circle to happen if possible. The actual act of this gift exchange can happen in the hotel room or maybe during a picnic the day before or possibly before the ceremony. However it may unfold, give this time for yourself & those women that love you and let them wish you all the best on your journey as a wife.

The gift of “Something Old” traditionally comes from the crone or grandmother of the bride and she passes on the symbol of family, the past & traditions. We used a delicate bird’s nest to hold the family ring passed on to the bride from the matriarch of her family. The gift of “Something New” comes from the flower girl or youngest maiden and we chose to give a new pair of mother-of-pearl heart earrings — the heart always being a symbol of love and the earrings to be adorned on her wedding day.

The gift of “Something Borrowed” comes from a maiden in a content & loving marriage or relationship. The bride’s maid spoke words of inspiration from The Master of Love and adorned her with essential oils of roses & sandalwood. The bride smelled of romance and beauty.

The gift of “Something Blue” is a symbol of purity, fidelity & love and comes from a maiden who is pure in spirit. The traditional gift is a blue garter belt and so we had a locally handmade deerskin garter belt dressed with a small bunch of vibrant blue hydrangeas. Finally, the gift of the “Sixpence in Her Shoe” symbolizes prosperity & wealth and comes from a maiden who is rich in spirit.

Our maidens gave her pink Hawaiian sea salt from Kauai and showered her in a rose petal bath.  The color palette for the bridesmaids’ dresses was a celebration of the rosy dawn and the beginning of spring. The bridal gown was a vintage ensemble created by Blayne of the Abracadabra store and gave the sense of elegance & grace to our bride. Dusty gave each of the girls a gorgeous up-do with flowing, loose braids & curls incorporating local succulents & deerskin wraps. The makeup was fresh and dewy with tribal touches to tie in the sacredness of the circle being held. A big thanks to everyone who pulled together to create this beautiful story…

Inspire Me: Chevron!

Chevron! When I first heard someone mention the name, I thought “Huh?” But over the past year, Chevron has popped up in strength everywhere. It means many different things in many different professions, which I find interesting – it’s everything from an anatomical term to a geological term to a company. Why is this word so popular? Perhaps it’s as fun to say as it is to use in design. That’s my theory, at  least. It’s graphically stunning for weddings, perfect in your home, and darn cute in clothing… it’s just a good, all-around graphic. Can dress up or dress down your event to suit your taste. Can’t enough good stuff – and with that, I’ll shut up now and share some Chevron inspired wedding pics…

Hawaii — Thomas & Annette’s Romantic Elopement

This beautiful Hawaiian wedding comes from Infinity Photography Hawaii. Read on for a beautiful look at this love story with a twist from Sweden, written by Infinity Photography Hawaii’s Desiree Maher…

 

 

Location: Makena Beach & Golf Course

Date: January 30, 2013

The Romantic Elopement of Thomas & Annette

These two sweethearts met at a friend’s New Year’s Eve party in Sweden. They experienced that feeling of love at first sight and had their first kiss at the turn of the New Year.

They decided on a beautiful elopement very close to the date they met because they wanted to share an intimate ceremony that simply focused on just the two of them. They chose the breathtaking Makena Beach & Golf Resort, which offers some of the most amazing views Maui has to offer. Makena is known for its many long, white sandy beaches & crystal blue water.

It was a touching ceremony & they truly slowed down to take it all in. They had their first dance under the gorgeous Money Pod tree & read notes that loved ones had sent from Sweden. They were swept off to enjoy a delicious seven course dinner by the beach…
