A VERY BIG THANK YOU to EVERYONE for their support and hard work. This event could not have happened without EVERYONE! Last night the Hawaii Wedding Pros presented the Cake & Wine Showcase and it was a great success!
Before I go any further, I would like to thank some additional individuals who have helped tremendously and since I can’t show their work, I just wanted to truly thank and acknowledge them for all of their time and efforts
Although the next 2 pictures are UNprofessional pictures, I wanted to share them to thank 2 special ladies (Sue from SU-V Expressions for the flowers & Naomi from Les Saisons for ALL linen except napkins) for ALL of their continued support and hard work!
Here are images by the talented photographer Kris Labang of Kris Labang Photography that I hope you enjoy!

This has been my newest guilty pleasure for about a month now and I must tell you to be careful as it can be addicting! Pinterest is a GREAT way to get ideas (not only for your wedding but for various aspects of your life) and it is ALSO a GREAT way to keep your vendors (as well wedding party, moms, sisters, etc.) in the loop of your wedding design & planning! Please feel free to follow our pins by following Kelly Sugano and Christine Nip to see pictures and ideas of weddings we have done as well as inspiration we find. Here are just a few things that I recently found and love!
White table decor
I love that the bride & groom will each of their guests as they exit…and the desgin…SO romantic! from bridalcookie.com
Black & White wedding cake from www.weddinglater.com
