Like with most weddings, the planning for Noori and Brendan’s began with ‘where’. Hailing from opposite sides of the country, it was important to pinpoint a perfect location to accommodate both of their families. After a few weeks, Noori and Brendan began to entertain the idea of a Hawaiian wedding which, coincidentally, was right before my own Hawaiian vacation. Days before departure, Noori mentioned a Kona resort that stuck out to them and, as fate would have it, it was the same resort I was headed off to! This twist of fate allowed for Noori and Brendan to have the peace of mind that does not always come with choosing a destination wedding as I was able to meet with the venue coordinator and scout the location to confirm it was the perfect choice.As the Royal Kona offers several prime venues and Noori and Brendan ultimately selected the Sunset Cove and the Alii Surf Room for their ceremony and reception sites. Just a few steps from each other, these two sites provided the perfect setting for their beautiful day!Noori’s vision runs parallel to mine which made it even more of a joy to work on their design. After all, pops of blush, mercury glass, and lush greenery are some of my favorite details. Mercury pedestal bowls perfectly accented the gorgeous centerpieces created by a local florist and, thanks to the venue, real Monstera leaves replaced our faux ones! Guests enjoyed a delicious buffet-style dinner with a variety of options followed by wedding cake. Favors consisted of cookies from the Honolulu Cookie Company. If you haven’t tried these shortbread delicacies shipped straight from heaven, you are missing out!Between the blue skies, crashing waves, and smiling guests, I’d have to say it was a perfect day and I hope that the newlyweds would agree!Want to see more?!
