Jackie & Ev’s Amazing DIY Rustic & Fall themed Hawaii Wedding

Jackie & Ev said "I do" on September 20th, 2014 in front of their closest family and friends at the Harbor View Center above Nico's Pier in Honolulu, Hawaii.  These two are seriously the sweetest and cutest couple I've ever met.  Everything about their wedding was a perfect reflection of them from the Cotton Candy exchange in place of the Cake Cutting to the Smores Bar and Giant Jenga.

The theme was Rustic Fall and inspired by the leaves, branches and colors of Fall. The two brides spent a ton of time creating tons of DIY projects that set the scene, and made it really feel like Fall, even here in Hawaii!

I seriously thought nobody could have done more DIY projects than I did at my wedding 3 years ago, but these two gave me a run for my money.  From the personalized seating chart to the homemade Smores Bar to the "Date Jars" to the lit up Candy Bar, guests had no shortage of fun activities to take part in.  And they loved every second of it.

Jackie & Ev, we could not be happier for you both for so many reasons and we were completely honored to be a part of your wedding day. We hope it was everything that you had imagined and that you were able to enjoy every second of it.  You two are such a perfect match and we wish you both a lifetime of love, lots of giggles, kisses, and blessings.  Cheers to your "Best Day Ever"!

As a little surprise, I also made you a little video of your special day..

Also, could not help but share a little snippet of their special song that the brides sang together. First of all, I did not know you two could sing so well!  And second, is this not the cutest thing ever?!!!  

And now for what might have been my favorite part of the night -"The Serious Dance".  I don't usually take the time to make so many video edits, but I'd never seen "The Serious Dance" before and was so impressed by it I just had to share it with you all.  For any brides looking for something AWESOME to do at your wedding, definitely consider "The Serious Dance".

Here's how it works, all guests are called on the dance floor, everyone has to move or dance but cannot smile or laugh.  If you laugh (or smile) you're out.  The more ridiculous you dance the more others will laugh and get out...  that's the point of "The Serious Dance".  I wasn't sure on how many people would really participate but boy was I surprised..  check out the video, it's seriously the best thing ever!
