Hawaiian Style

Back from Hawaii and had such a wonderful, relaxing and memorable time. Everything we set eyes on seemed so beautiful and full of life -- and of course, I took note of all the interiors we encountered. The open air, tropical feel and style was refreshing and fitting.

Love this open air lobby.

Such an abundance of unusual and vibrant flowers and plants.

Cozy corner in our room on the big island.

I adore the small print on this chair.

When we arrived on the big island, they gave us our flower lei's and took us over to this sitting area to welcome us. (I was so giddy!)

The "wave bench"

The resort we stayed at in Maui had several block print and quilted textiles framed - loved these of course!

Beautiful sunsets every night were so breathtaking.

I said "I do"


Simply put, yesterday was with out a doubt the best day of my life. It was everything Pat and I imagined it to be, and more! We are so lucky to have such fabulous friends and family who helped make it all so special.

Here are a few random shots of the day/evening...can't wait to share more!

P.S. I'm headed to Hawaii for the next two weeks - I will be back and ready to blog, so don't forget about me!!

I had 9 bridesmaids - here are a handful of the beauties and our darling flower girl!

Our florist was amazing! These were on the church doors, so beautiful.

Ceremony - lighting the unity candle.

Introduction to the reception!

Pat and I chatted with all our guests before the dancing started...

Cake cutting...and looky, I changed my sash for the dancing part of the evening, navy blue!

Oh and did we dance!

A Lovely Gift

I've received so many beautiful and generous wedding gifts, but just the other day a dear friend sent me this frame that I adore. The quote is meaningful and has me teary with my nuptials just a few days away....

"May your life be filled with laughter. May your heart be filled with song. May your eyes be filled with beauty. May your soul always know to whom you belong." - Lynn James

I can't wait to find a special place for it!

It also comes in blue - purchase here.

My brain is on overload...luckily it's for an exciting reason/occasion, but none the less I'm lacking creativity and can only think of my wedding check list...which at the moment feels endless.

In other words, please excuse my short posts and days skipped between now and May 14th...

But for today, you have to check out Rikshaw Designs - fellow blogger Duchess Fare posted about it a few weeks back and I felt compelled to find out more about this darling company. I ordered a tunic and highly recommend doing the same....very soft, very beachy, perfect for summer.

Ideal for the honeymoon!


Icing on the cake - they have bedding!
