STATIONERY: Stacey and Ryan ordered a complete suite of stationery in the Cory design, including the save the dates, the invitation suite, thank you notesmenu cardsplace cards and wedding programs.

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS INVITATION?: Because we were having a destination wedding, our save-the-dates were one of the very first design element decisions we made.  I wanted something that was simple and clean, but also elegant and sophisticated.  We were able to incorporate the starfish theme throughout the wedding.

STACEY’S FAVORITE DETAIL: My favorite wedding detail was definitely the flowers.  I wanted flowers that represented Hawaii but that were still elegant and contemporary.  The table arrangements, bouquets, and especially my lei, was so wonderfully fragrant all night long.

STACEY’S MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT: Other than the wedding ceremony itself, my favorite moment was when we got to the reception and I saw that the reception decor and details had turned out even better than I imagined.  I could finally relax and enjoy everything!  Many thanks to the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel for providing first-class service, top-notch food and one of the most beautiful places on earth!  It was true paradise and Ryan and I feel so lucky we have such a special place to go back to.

Mai + Andrew’s EXTREME Engagement Portraits

When we hear of an Engagement Portrait, the image of a couple – sitting posed and still, often under artificial studio lighting conditions – typically comes to mind. But when Toby is your photographer, an Engagement Portrait means no such thing!

True to his relaxed personality, openness to new ideas, and creative sense of adventure, Toby took Mai and Andrew to multiple locations around the Big Island, for a fun, unique and exciting day of shooting!

From lava walking along the Kohala Coast, to eating Shave Ice in the quaint Hawaiian town of  Hawi, to hanging out  at the scenic Pololu Valley lookout, each new spot offered a rare and beautiful backdrop against which Mai & Andrew could express the romance of their engagement. They even hiked alongside a babbling creek in a hidden forest, and made it to one of Kona’s dreamy white sand beaches just in time for the sunset!
