I’m just going to come right out and say it – sometimes tropical weddings can be a bit cheesy. But this one photographed by Christine Clark is anything but. Designed with an effortless elegance that touched every detail, including fresh greens for a natural vibe, this Big Island affair embraces Hawaiian style in the prettiest way and we can’t get enough.
From Christine Clark Photography… Set at Puakea Ranch on the Big Island of Hawaii, Vai and Greg’s wedding was the epitome of delicate island style. The reception setup, brilliantly designed by Bliss in Bloom, featured hanging greens against old, polished wood, all accented with subtle pops of tropical florals. It was the perfect blend of elements and tones. The ceremony took place under the shade of a great, spreading tree outside of the ranch house, with touches of tropical greens lining the aisle.
Vai was a vision of loveliness in Catherine Dean, proving the timeless refrain that simplicity is the greatest elegance. Greg clearly agreed as he couldn’t take his eyes off of her all day! I love it when the groom is spilling over himself with pride for his bride, and Greg was beaming nonstop.
For our portraits, we were visited by a pair of beautiful white horses that could not have been more perfect. Vai seemed to channel a real world Snow White as the animal lover in her shone through. I half expected a bird to sweep down and land on her shoulder! The whole day was filled with grace and warmth, with an elegant tropical touch to pull together the beauty of the day.
