Wedding In Maui
Tiana Christopher (Mom) LAHAINA, HI
I always knew I would someday arrange my daughter's wedding flowers. I had long retired from my wedding flower business but wanted to do this for her. I spent the entire day before designing her centerpieces and bouquets at the kitchen table in the Maui condo. The condo smelled amazing and was jam packed with flowers in buckets and centerpieces scattered about. The bride Tiana went to college and spent many years in New Orleans so there were many touches of New Orleans in the wedding. Including the Jazz Band that played for her Second Line, a fleur de lis cake topper, Mardi Gras masks, table cards, etc. Tiana moved to New Zealand three years ago where she met her amazing and handsome groom
Ryan. They picked Maui as a "meeting in the middle" location between her friends and family in the US and her new friends and family in New Zealand. So many of the 45 guests came from New Zealand and London, and many from the Midwest and New Orleans. The wedding day at Olowalu Plantation in Maui was amazing. The grounds are so beautiful and the beach view is stunning. The plantation house is equally beautiful. The ceremony went off without a hitch! The food from Food for the Soul was perfect. The red velvet cake "to die for." Tina from the catering company was also the wedding coordinator - so well organized if there were any problems you could not tell. Her staff was excellent. The day went by all too fast and it was a magical day and experience none of us will ever forget. The flowers were a hit with bridal party and her guests and the bride was happy. She was the one I needed to please! I would like to thank her amazing photographer who provided all the lovely images.
