One of the goals of a great wedding planner is to make sure the bride is as calm as possible prior to getting married, and that’s exactly what Opihi Love excels at! Planner + designer, Opihi Love teamed up with the lush Maui Tropical Plantation at the base of the West Maui Mountains to craft some gorgeous bridal inspiration, along with a picnic lunch that is sure to keep every bride feeling rejuvenated + calm, amidst the chaos of wedding planning. Paying homage to the land, the team incorporated as many elements and ingredients from this 60-acre Farm-to-Table plantation! And we’re completely crushing on the way they did so… From the gorgeous florals, to the incredible custom-made arch + and the fresh picks for the picnic — it’s definitely a Hawaiian oasis!
Let’s venture to Maui to see all the pretty captured by Honey Gem Creative!
Is this the prettiest tropical-inspired invitation suite you’ve ever seen, or what? It’s by Citrus Press Co.
We’re loving this custom wedding gown by Leanne Marshall (Project Runway Season 5 winner!), and Free People boots. A comfortable + super stylish outfit for the big day… One that could also work for adventurous photos!
Maui Palm Tree Florals created this custom floral arch, which would make the perfect backdrop for saying ‘I Do’. Don’t you think?
So, so pretty!!
The custom cutting boards were given a darling detail with the hand done calligraphy by Honeycomb Hand Lettering.
Those vibrant florals are GORGEOUS!!
The bride’s hair + dewy makeup were done by Meili Autumn Beauty… We love the natural look + loose waves!
The photographer, Brooke at Honey Gem Creative shares The loveliness of getting ready should be the first chapter of the wedding day. All these elements paired together make for a beautiful and relaxing pre-wedding prep and could even inspire those brides looking to elope!
So darling + completely stunning, right?! Who else is thinking about a Hawaiian getaway now? We may be a little biased as we’ve got a thing for Maui… But wouldn’t it be such a gorgeous place to have your wedding or elope? :)
A huge thank you to the team behind this dreamy shoot!
