I've loved this destination wedding since the moment that I first saw it, and I'm excited to finally share it with you today! Kristen and Justin were married this past spring in a sweet, intimate ceremony at a private residence in Haena on the island of Kauai. This charming Hawaiian wedding was photographed by the talented Melissa Dunstan, who does an amazing job capturing all of the sweet wedding details and the amazing scenery that surrounded the couple on their day. Showcasing an elegant ivory, green and purple color palette, with vintage Hawaiian pieces and unique modern florals, Kim Duncan of KD Event Designs created a wedding that was full of pure warmth and authenticity.
Kristen and Justin were married in a simple wedding ceremony outside overlooking the Hawaiian coast, with an intimate dinner reception later following beneath the trees strung with white lights. The bride took her time collecting unique glassware from various antique shops in Kauai for guests to use at the reception, while dining on fresh, local Hawaiian cuisine prepared by Chef Grant Carnes. All of the paper goods, including the colorful dinner menus, were designed by event designer Kim Duncan. Vintage postcards were used in lieu of a guest book, which Kristen and Justin plan to read on their one year wedding anniversary next March 19, 2012.
I'm loving Kristen's rings, too, aren't you?! Justin designed the ring for her himself, using diamonds from his grandmother's own wedding rings. Such a sweet idea...it reminds me of a necklace that my mom had made for me for my 16th birthday using the diamond from her wedding ring.
