I may have screamed when I got word that Brian + David's perfectly 'Old Hawai'i' celebration would grace the pages of The Knot, but I about peed my pants when the glossy magazine showed up on my doorstep. Their event was a grand success, sophisticated, full of details that were totally them (right down to their matching rings!), Ted's bakery pies and giant light-up letters. Avery of Green Honolulu creatively mixed ferns, pineapples, raw coconuts and orchids, local staples that set the stage for an elegant affair. Guys, the night spend dancing under the banyan tree lanterns truly was Island Chic! With the bonzai toasts, chocolate macnut pie and your custom tuxes, your day was essentially Hawai'i done with Manhattan style. Your warmth, playfulness and love completely transcended the lush details of your timeless summer wedding. For Brian Kailua may have once been home, but now it's forever with David. And your FRIENDS? Da bomb. Wishing you 10,000 MORE years of happiness, laughter + travel together. Ps: David, your Bowtie was perfect all. day. long.
Check out their Dillingham Ranch, O'ahu wedding in the Real Weddings section of the Knot Fall 2015. My first time having my work printed in a national publication, too. Did someone hear a cork pop? I think this calls for a party! I may or may not be still searching Target to buy up every dang issue.
