Charmayne + Nick: Loulu Palm Estate

What an amazing time I had planning this beautiful wedding for England based couple, Charmayne Woo & Nick Wright who tied the knot ocean side earlier this month on Oahu's stunning North Shore. While ninety percent of our destination wedding couples don't make it out to the islands for planning trips before the wedding, Charmayne and Nick were fortunate to visit us twice (yes twice! AND all the way from England!) before the wedding to select their perfect venue, meet their favored vendors and enjoy tastings with the best cake bakers and caterers on island. And what a treat it was!

After a whirlwind, circle island tour of Oahu and our most popular wedding venues (and a mandatory stop at Kahuku's Giovanni's Shrimp Truck), they picked none other then the Loulu Palm Estate for it's stunning ocean and sunset views and of course, it's gorgeous wide open lawn that would provide the perfect clean palette for our team to design their big day.

Charmayne and Nick hoped for an intimate and elegant evening that focused on good friends, good food and good times. Armed with a folder full of inspirational design images and a clean and modern palette of white, ivory and tiffany blue with touches of yellow, reminiscent of Charmayne's love for Tiffany's and the frangipane (plumeria) bloom, Yvonne Chapman of Yvonne Floral Design designed the most gorgeous bouquets and floral touches.

Here's a peak at some of the photos from Charmayne and Nick's wedding day!
