We’re taking a dreamy mental vacay to the islands this afternoon thanks to Mandy Grace Designs + Couture Events Maui who collaborated to create this organic, dramatic and lush styled shoot at Ka Hale Olina on Maui. According to photographer, Wendy Laurel, who beautiful documented the scene you’re about to see, the inspiration was originally based around the color indigo and blossomed from there.
She says, We wanted something natural and a little opulent. Once the color was chosen everything else fell into place. We chose a location in Upcountry Maui, close to the bright blue Maui sky. Designer, Lindee Daniel, instantly came to mind with the amazing construction of her organic, cruelty free silk wedding gowns. Her indigo blue silk gown was a perfect match for this styled shoot. It was as if it was made for it! The color indigo was named after the indigo dye derived from a plant so it seemed appropriate to incorporate hand dyed silk ribbon and hand dyed muslin in various shades of blue from Adorn. A rustic farm table, organic artichokes, figs, and crystal stemware was the perfect balance of organic and dramatic. Other organic elements that helped tied it all together were the delicious puff pastry style cakes created by Maui Sweet Cakes and the organic wood invitation styled by Miss B Calligraphy.
Loving this pink + berry bouquet by Mandy Grace Designs. And of course it was tied with pretty, hand-dyed indigo ribbon!
The tablescape was super lovely with more great florals, wooden monogrammed bowls and an airy blue runner.
Major love for this fun ribbon clad swing. And that blue dress? Totally killing it, right?!
Thanks so much to the team below for sharing something unique with us today! We love the idea of a pretty blue wedding dress for a fun + relaxed island celebration!
