Get ready for a taste of the HI life! We love when we get to design for super chic couples who have both a killer personal style and an infectious romance! With Brandi + Tim’s love for the island life, we decided to play with a theme that combined Carmen Miranda and retro Hawaiian inspired touches  with a dash of old Hollywood glam. Using large palm leaves and mango wood, we created a custom wood backdrop inspired by Hawaiian quilt prints for the escort card display and filled it with the help of JL Designs with the most delicious abundance of tropical fruits. We also painted pineapples to hold table names, made custom wood square candle holders, and had menus created with white calligraphy on palm leaves to perch at each table among the beautiful blooms and transfer ware blue china.  For favors, we shipped in our couple’s favorite cookies from Hawaii and packaged them in pineapple-printed muslin bags.  

Our couple danced to Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s get it on” for their first dance and heated up the room.  After dinner, guests sipped on Mai Tai’s and treated themselves to the sugar shack dessert display with the most darling quilt inspired cake by Hey There -Cupcake.  With straw hats and coconut bras we kept things playful on the dance floor as guests busted a move. We were so happy to see that our design resonated with the couple’s sense of style so well. As the groom said, “We were so impressed with their [Amorology’s] ability to transform our vague ideas into vibrantly crafted and vintage Hawaiiana style that represented us perfectly.” 

Brandi and Tim and their weding is near and dear to our hearts for so many reasons but we especially loved that our sweet couple in need of a flower girl, asked Heather’s little daughter, Milla to play the part and on her birthday! Growing up in a world full of brides, this was the pinnacle! Lots of dreams coming true on this wedding day!
