Picture this — it’s 2005, Juicy Couture is all the rage, Carrie Underwood has just won American Idol, Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County airs weekly, and The Hills has just started production. Little did Audrina Patridge know back then, but this was the year that she would meet her match. Audrina tells us I was 20, exploring the City of Angels with my best friends, and living a crazy LA lifestyle. A girlfriend of mine invited me to an X Games after-party, where I spotted a (good-looking) guy dancing in a neon pink jumpsuit. That was the night that she met Corey Bohan.
As time passed, the two found time to get to know each other and their love story truly began… Now years later, Audrina shares Corey proposed to me at one of our favorite restaurants. He seemed nervous all night and when it came time for dessert, the waiter suggested we share the cheesecake. The waiter returned and placed a silver platter with a lid on table. When I turned and looked at Corey, he dropped to his knee and in place of the cheesecake, there was a little red box atop a bed of roses! He whispered, “We have been together for along time now and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?” I said yes. 1000% YES. All of the sudden, the whole restaurant began popping champagne and celebrating with us.
Is that the cutest, EVER? Audrina + Corey said their I Do’s on Kauai, with their darling daughter, Kirra (five months old at the time) by their side. Moana Events made sure the day was pure bliss, while Jana Dillon Photography captured the whole thing. We couldn’t imagine a better location for their wedding, as Audrina recently launched her swimsuit line — Prey Swim! Can you say honeymoon attire? Now let’s adventure to Hawaii!
So, so gorgeous.
We wanted to get married in paradise and Hawaii was the perfect destination, as it is halfway between Australia — where Corey is from — and the States! I wanted to find a wedding planner who knew the islands and would be able to produce our vision… I spent a whole night researching everyone in Hawaii and Moana Events was my first choice!
How adorable is their little one, Kirra?
Glamorous, beachy, and bohemian! The day was filled with friends, family, and lots of twinkling lights. The color palette consisted of soft neutral tones in creams and blush, coupled with cobalt blue, crimson, and emerald. Natural wood elements were mixed in throughout the day to create a more organic and earthy feeling.
Amy Clarke Makeup kept the ladies looking glamorous, even in the Hawaiian humidity.
Audrina shares When I think back to the beginning of our relationship, I’m always reminded of this quote: Appreciate the small beginnings, because they have way of becoming bigger than you think. I think that captures us to a T.
Representing her husband’s homeland, Audrina wore a custom gown by Australian designer, Pallas Couture. Made of French Chantilly lace and intricate embroidery, the dress exuded romantic, yet relaxed vibes. Perfect for the bohemian-inspired bride!
Moana Events tells us Guests were invited to find their seats at the white-washed wood tables, decorated with vintage blue glassware and wood charger plates. We designed a geometric shape for the escort card display. Lovely additions included the marble hand-calligraphed place cards, rose gold foil napkins, and the custom bride + groom chair signs with crystal detailing.
The real focal point? Those hanging chandeliers, adorned with greenery + florals by Steven Boyle Design!!
Such a dazzling scene!
Contemporary Flavors Catering crafted their three-tier cake, topped with peachy pink florals.
What. A. Night! Congrats to you, Audrina + Corey!!
