Christian & Shanice's Banyan Tree Estate Wedding
Christian and Shanice got married at the Banyan Tree Estate in Hawaii Kai. Surrounded by their closest friends and family they exchanged vows with an intimate and beautiful ocean-front ceremony. A Hawaiian Kahu led the ceremony as the gorgeous Shanice and handsome Christian vowed their love to each other - always. The sunset that night was spectacular, the light breezes were perfect, and I would expect nothing less for this sweet couple.
Over the months preceding their wedding I worked mostly with the groom pulling together all the details, and it made me so happy to see his smile when he finally saw everything come together for his beautiful bride. It's really these moments that make it all worthwhile :)
We did simple Hawaiiana-inspired decor- white orchid florals with palm leaves and lots of candles, adding in little graphic name tags on the place settings for personalization. Guests dined under a clear tent lit with cafe lighting, creating a soft and pretty ambiance, the stars twinkled through the tent - it was the perfect touch. And the food was to-die-for, Chef Peter Foster cooked in the house kitchen, each dish was perfect and everything tasted so fresh! Dinner was topped off with a pretty sea-shell buttercream cake, chosen by the bride & designed by Paradise Pastries. A Tahitian show and an award winning fire dancer left family and friends cheering. Then the night ended with dancing, shots, and more dancing (thanks to DJ Kevo)!
Cheers to Christian and Shanice & their "Best Day Ever"! It was such a pleasure working with and getting to know you both. Thank you for making my job so wonderful. I hope your wedding day was everything you imagined it to be (and more!). Wishing you both a lifetime of blessings, love & kisses!
