Featured Wedding - Eri and Aris

Eri and Aris are such a sweet couple. I met them the first time when I flew over to O`ahu for their scouting trip on Valentine's Day, and Eri's parents flew in from Japan as well. It was fun spending time with them, checking out different locations and meeting with vendors.

After the scouting trip, the rest of the planning was all done via email as Eri spent most of that time in Japan, but everything went very well on the day of, and it was exactly how they envisioned their wedding to be.

CATERING: D'lish Catering. FLORALS & LINENS: Yvonne Floral. PHOTOS: Visionari. RENTALS & LIGHTING: A'A Party Rentals.

Eri and Aris had their wedding at Lanikuhonoua, which is one of my favorite locations on O`ahu! Eri chose lime green, coral and yellow for their decor colors to complement all of her bridesmaid's dresses. The colors were just perfect, even for a November wedding. In fact, a lot of my 2009 brides have asked me about those colors for their wedding next year! It was such a gorgeous day with absolutely no wind and rain. - practically a planner's dream! We couldn't have asked for better weather, and Eri looked stunning in this wedding gown that she selected with her mom.

The highlight of this wedding was the entertainment toward the end of the reception with the hula dancers and the fire knife dancer. It was a surprise for the guests and I think everyone enjoyed it.

Congratulations, Eri and Aris! All the best to both of you and hope to see you again here in Hawai`i or back in Northern Cal!

What a beautiful wedding and the bride looks great in that gorgeous dress!

My fiance and I just recently bought our gorgeous wedding bands from that look so much like the beautiful rings in the first photo.

We haven't decided on our wedding location yet but Lanikuhonoua looks like the dream place to have it. It is wedding heaven!
