Boxwood and Ballet

The saying goes "It takes a village" and that definitely holds true when it comes to pulling together an awesome event. Hawaii is home to many talented folks in the wedding industry, from designers to photographers, caterers to musicians, and everything in between. In fact, a recent study identified Hawaii as one of the top five international wedding destinations (oh yeah!). 

So when the web's most visited wedding planning site, The Knot, decided to host a "Mahalo Party" for some of Hawaii's wedding professionals, we were excited to get involved and help set the environment with some of our signature products. After all, what's a little work with no play?

Held at The Modern Honolulu, the event was perfectly situated overlooking the Pacific (which by the way is absolutely stunning!). Inspired by Cinderella, the event had romantic touches including soft pink and white florals and enchanting masks for guests to wear. The venue was also decorated with nature-inspired textures, including our potted topiaries and flowers by Floral Inspirations--perfect elements to complement the indoor-outdoor environment.

Our Dome Chairs were also used as statement pieces in front of the Custom Boxwood as a chic backdrop for photos. Our boxwood panels were also used throughout the space to create zones for the entertainment area and bar.  

Dancers from Ballet Hawaii's recent production of this classic tale were also there to greet and entertain guests (who have been delighting Hawaii for 37 years ... that's a whole lot of pliés and pirouettes!).

But what's a party without delicious bites?! Guests nibbled on sweet and savory treats with a wonderfully curated dessert bar in the hotel's Sun Suite.

So, a huge "Mahalo" to all the folks who help bring events to life and snaps to The Knot for bringing together some of Hawaii's talented wedding professionals, including Aloha Wedding Planners for coordinating the evening. Here's to more wonderful events for 2013 and beyond!
