Dia de los Muertos is an inspiring treat all year-round, as you’ll see in this shoot from the talented team of Tamiz Photography, Opihi Love Wedding and Event Design, and Dellables. Everything took place in Maui, Hawaii, adding an extra element of tropical flair to an already colorful and fun-filled shoot. We love the idea of mixing over-sized balloons with various patterns for a real eye-catching display!

From the event designers, Opihi Love Wedding and Event Design: This styled shoot was inspired by COLOR! We noticed we were seeing the same (beautiful) tones of blush and ivory and that we were craving something a bit more bold, edgy and vibrant. We combined our inspiration of color with inspiration of Dia de los Muertos and found the perfect setting at Joe’s Nuevo Latino with their skull inspired decor and colorful food art.

If Maui wasn’t on your list of travel destinations before, it will be now. Danielle Poff Photography and Maui’s Angels put together this styled shoot that’s as much of a breath of fresh air as it is inspiring for all you boho lovers out there. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for one incredible floral crown, as well as the breathtaking jewel-toned bouquet with oversized flowers!

From the event designer, Lorrie of Maui’s Angels: We have been dying to do a shoot with the ever so talented Sunya’s flowers and after months and months of trying the stars sure did align. And oh my how they aligned perfectly with Danielle Poff Photography who graced our presence while here on our beautiful island. The theme was more that of an organic bohemian elegance so what better way to embrace this than shooting our gorgeous model, clad in a customized Joelle Perry masterpiece, in the lush forest at the Honolua Bay Reserve?

The tablescape created was fit for a queen and adorned with hand picked vintage pieces from Sunya’s very own collection along with a multi-hued palette of deep jewel toned flowers. We enlisted the delectable talents of Cake Fanatics who created the mini naked cakes and chocolate covered desserts. And the masterfully crafted flower hair halo styled perfectly by Satin and Sand Maui? Marvelous! Thank you again to all of our amazing vendors for coming out to play in the forest with us. I will keep this one close to my heart!

Casey Brodley, Photographer

I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.

As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.

As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.

Destination Hawaiian Wedding at Haiku Mill

Romantic Weddings

Photos by:

Tamiz Photography

We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring you another wedding from one of our favorite venues, Hawaii’s Haiku Mill. This place is a tropical dream come true, as you’ll see from the images by Tamiz Photography. Throw in some flowers by Dellables Floral Wedding Design and the sweet romance between newlyweds Lisa and Matt, and you’ve got a surefire winner!

sophisticated Hawaiian wedding at Haiku Mill - photo by Tamiz Photography http://ruffledblog.com/sophisticated-hawaiian-wedding-at-haiku-mill

From the bride, Lisa: Matt and I met four years ago on a fortuitous (if not slightly cheesy) Contiki Tour through Southeast Asia. After two short weeks together, and an impromptu trip to Phuket, we knew we had something special. After parting ways, I returned to Canada and Matt to Australia thus beginning our year-long, long distance relationship. After many long hours spent chatting online and over the phone, we decided to take the next step in our relationship and I packed up and moved across the world to Australia. Four years, a couple of moves and a little shaggy fur-baby later and I’m happy to say that we are finally husband and wife.

For Matt and me, our wedding was all about bringing our family and friends together. We decided early on in our relationship that we would get married “somewhere in the middle” and Hawaii fit the bill nicely. Since this would likely be the one time in our lives when all of our loves ones would be in the same place, we wanted to make our wedding an unforgettable experience for everyone. We knew early on in the planning process that we did not want a typical beach wedding and wanted something a little bit more special and unique. After searching through endless wedding blogs and travel sites, I came across a wonderful write-up on unique wedding venues on each island. As soon as I came across Haiku Mill’s website, I knew we’d found “the one”. I immediately sent the link to Matt and my parents and luckily, they had the same reaction that I did. It was as if we had found the place that we didn’t even know that we’d been dreaming of.

Wanting to keep the vibe casual and fun, we decided on a “rustic garden party with hint of country charm” theme. Since Haiku Mill is magical and stunning to begin with, it provided the perfect backdrop for our dream wedding and we only needed a few personal touches to make it ours. As with any good garden party, we knew that flowers would be the most important part of making our theme come alive. After explaining to our planners at Haiku Mill what we wanted (peonies and garden flowers in pops of colour), they paired us up with Dellables. Once we started working with Della and her team, it became clear that they had a very similar aesthetic to what we were after and we were able to leave a lot of the specifics in their capable hands.

Throughout the whole planning process, the team at Haiku Mill were absolutely amazing. They were able to accommodate every request we had and the vendors they worked with were all lovely. We had a very clear vision of what we wanted and they were absolute mind-readers in making everything come together exactly as planned. The day itself was just as we’d imagined – full of love, laughter and fun. Once the sun set and the candles and fairy lights lit the space, everyone felt the magic that we had wanted from the beginning. It was more than we could have asked for and an experience that will not be soon forgotten.

Flying halfway around the world for an unforgettable fairytale celebration? Uh yeah, sign us up right now. Alisha and Rob’s wedding was indeed a Hawaii fairytale come true, trading in the sandy beaches for an elegant, botanical garden event. The incredible team of Tamiz Photography, Mandy Grace Designs, and Haiku Mill worked true wonders here!

Romantic Maui Wedding - photo by Tamiz Photography http://ruffledblog.com/haiku-mill-wedding

From the bride, Alisha: We decided on Hawaii because it made perfect geographical sense as it was half way between our friends and families in Canada and Australia. Neither of us were keen on beach weddings as we wanted a more formal affair that was romantic and elegant but also contemporary and unique. While searching online for wedding venues in Hawaii we stumbled across Haiku Mill in Maui and it was exactly what we were looking for. The majority of our guests were travelling very far distances and we wanted to find a venue where our guests could experience a fairytale celebration they would never forget.

Our colour scheme involved all soft colours – shades of pinks & grey, ivory & gold accents. We had 6 months to plan our wedding so we didn’t have a lot of time for DIY projects. One project we did do was create personalized escort cards. We bought envelopes that were used as escort cards and wrote individual hand written notes inside to all of our guests. This was a big hit as it showed our guests how much they all individually meant to us. Another resource we found really helpful was etsy. It allowed us to have hand crafted touches such as personalized luggage tags as place cards for our guests.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? If planning a destination wedding make sure you hire an event coordinator that knows the quality local vendors very well as you may not have a chance to meet with any of the vendors in person. Also, try your best to find a venue that can accommodate a wide range of guests as you often don’t know your final numbers until a month before. We thought we were going to have 25 guests but ended up with 90 in the end.

Hawaiian Holiday Inspiration Shoot

Wedding Design

Photos by:

We’re starting our roll into the winter season, which means Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is on repeat in my iTunes these days. Add our favorite season with one of the best places on earth, and this styled shoot is brought to fruition by Opihi Love and Tamiz Photography. A holiday shoot with bohemian styling from Hawaii? Say no more, I’m officially sold!

bohemian wedding decor

From the stylist, Melissa of Opihi Love: Hawaii is such a little slice of heaven on earth — beaches, sand, sunsets, we have it all! It’s when you find hidden gems like a Eucalyptus Forest, and fields of protea, you realize just what Maui has to offer. Although our leaves don’t change color, on the side of Haleakala Crater in upcountry Maui we created our luxe version of a Holiday Photo Shoot. Inspired by beautiful fabrics, warming colors and nod to nature, Tamiz Photography captured the shoot as if we were high in the mountains of Oregon.

A picture perfect sunset with scrumptious pies from Mana Foods, Paia — the setting was perfect for our beautiful couple. Our dessert table was inspired by fall fruits and vegetables, and was elegantly labeled with Miss B Calligraphy. Creating a pie dessert table with a spice selection allows for customization of pie slices by all wedding guests.

Utilizing our surroundings the shoots flowers designed and created by Opihi Love Boutique Rentals & Event Design brought in eucalyptus, protea, kale, and pussy willows. Deep reds, greens, and purples were our feature colors. It’s such a breath taking moment when the sun is setting perfectly, the bride is stunning, and the setting provides you with one-of-a-kind photographs. This is what Maui gave us for this styled shoot.

Colorful Maui Wedding

Beach Weddings

Photos by:

We’re happy to see signs of fall popping up all over the place (pumpkin lattes!), but today’s wedding from Wendy Laurel is making us miss summer just a tad — how could you not look at this beautiful day and wish you were in the warmth of Hawaii’s sands? Add on some chevron table runners, ombre napkins, and some amazing pinks and corals and we’re counting down the days until next summer!

maui wedding locations

From the bride, Krista: We decided on Maui because we both really wanted to do a destination wedding, and Hawaii seemed like the dream spot to do it in! I had fond memories of a childhood vacation to Oahu and my fiancee had never been, plus we avoided any worries of hurricane season in the Caribbean. The best thing we did once we decided on a location was to find a wedding planner. I knew I wanted someone who would be organized and knowledgeable about the location-since I certainly had no idea about locations or vendors.

For the bridal party, I did my best to keep things simple. I had each of my bridesmaids pick one shade of the pinks/oranges I had chosen from paint swatches, and asked them to find a knee length dress that they liked in that color. It was the simplest way to wrangle dress selections since everyone was scattered across the country, and everyone loved the dresses they wore! We also made sure to rent a beach house for the week before the wedding where our entire bridal party (and us!) could stay to really hang out. Some people we hadn’t seen in years, so it was a really great vacation in addition to a wedding.

The one thing I did to make my destination wedding feel more real to me was to have an active hand in finding the decor for the ceremony and reception. I ordered the table runners, drink straws, and origami drink stirrers off of Etsy, and had them delivered to my house so I could see them before the day of the wedding. I also really liked the ombre dinner napkins I had seen on Pinterest, so decided to DIY them myself. It was awesome to go into my wedding day not really knowing how all the details would come together. I tried to leave as much as possible to the wedding planner. It really cut down on any stress I might have felt about little details being wrong — I had no idea what “right” would have looked like!

As a graphic designer, I believe that great graphic design is in the details {read: spending lots of time at the computer looking at pixels.} If you dont know what a pixel is- congratulations- because that’s why graphic designer types exist! {to save your eyesight} Really, though-design is more than matching colors and picking pretty fonts {but I do have major love for fonts} – it’s about conveying your message to the world with a swirl, a flourish, a dot, a pattern- whatever it takes to creatively encompass your clients vision and send that vision out into the world with impact.

Vintage Hawaiian Wedding, Part III

To design a Hawaiian wedding off the beaten path is not easy task, and Canvas and Canopy Events did it beautifully. I just can’t stop swooning over these images! The fresh color palette and vintage elements look like they were made for each other on this wedding. Photos by Honolulu wedding photographer Christie Pham, whose website is a must see for brides planning a Hawaii wedding!

From Cortnie from Canvas and Canopy Events:
Ombre hand dyed runners inspired from the couture resort collections of the Paris runways faded from bright blue, to light aqua to sea foam green and blended into the backdrop of the sparkling sea. Chandeliers swayed above the tables were also hand dyed in a palette of light blues and greens made from cotton fabric with raw edges, knotted and strung with crystals sparkling throughout. A floral crown was placed on top of each chandelier resembling a woodland fairy. Since we did not want to go the traditional Hawaiian wedding route and create chandeliers from leis of orchids- this was our softer and more custom interpretation. Each chandelier was up-lit and glowing by the time the sun started to set.

We wanted to incorporate the rest of the peacock feel in a non-literal way with the ruffles of the curtain swaying behind the soda bar, the pattern of the brocade napkins which resembled the outline of the peacock monogram, and the color palettes which consistently faded from dark to light throughout the event.

Vanessa from Lollipop Events and Designs shares how they designed the reception and more brilliant details on this beautiful Maui wedding…

The bridal bouquet made out of bleached peacock feathers added drama and high fashion flair to the brides stunning strapless gown. We incorporated the bleached peacock feathers of the bridal bouquet into the event design by placing a feather at each table setting upon a brightly colored pineapple brocade printed napkin, hand sewn with ivory fringe. Flowers were placed in various shaped mercury vessels amidst tall candelabras. Soft peach and pink peonies seemed to float above the silvery mercury vases, which contrasted off of the hand dyed aqua hued table runners.

The Diamond Willow created the custom feather bouquet and flowers were from Dellables Florist in Maui. Photos by Christie Pham Photography.

Before entering the ceremony area guests were greeted by a table draped in a soft pink couture linen covered with bubbly filled champagne glasses for guests to sip on during the ceremony. Perched next to the glasses was a sign that said “champagne kisses”.

I diiiiieeeed when the crazy talented ladies over at Lollilop Events and Designs sent over this amazing vintage inspired Hawaiian wedding they designed for their clients a few months ago. I love every single wedding they create, and was over the moon when this one landed in my inbox! The couple got married in Maui, and asked them to incorporate elements of peacocks into their special day. Photos by Christie Pham Photography.

Vanessa from Lollilop Events and Designs says:
Instead of going the traditional jewel tone route, we wanted to soften the palette and use light pastels and bleached peacock feathers for a more subdued underlying effect rather than an obvious peacock theme. The only obvious display of peacocks was visible on the monogram of the invitations and the custom printed canvas gift bags.

For the ceremony site we wanted to maintain the simplicity of the sea filled backdrop and the rustic dried out palm frond pergola. We hung clusters of tight roses dripping with unexpected strands of pearls. A crystal chandelier majestically glittered against the backdrop of the expansive ocean and setting sun. Vintage frames were propped against the rustic archway and covered with moss and flowers as an inviting entrance to the alter under which they said “I Do!” in the romantic setting of tropical perfection.

The brides’ childhood friend was kind enough to write a poem for the couple’s special day. We were so inspired by the time and love put into the poem, we asked her to send us the original handwritten copy. We then made beautiful copies onto our custom design bridal letterhead and passed out to guests in lieu of traditional programs.
