Aloha! Brandi + Tim’s love for the island life called for a tropical, fabulously fruity and hot Hawaiian themed wedding, which was held at Rancho Valencia—just north of San Diego, California, USA.
The pineapple patch wedding featured lots of palm leaves, tropical fruits, mango wood, fresh blooms in a range of colours and you guessed it, pineapples! ‘We also painted pineapples to hold table names, made custom wood square candle holders, and had menus created with white calligraphy on palm leaves to perch at each table among the beautiful blooms and transferware blue china’ said wedding stylist from Amorology Weddings, Sheridan.
After dinner, the couple had their first dance to a classic—Marvin Gaye’s ‘Let’s Get It On.’ This made the room heat up, so everyone was treated to some refreshing Mai Tai tropical cocktails to cool them off. But wait, it gets hotter! It wouldn’t be Hawaiian if there weren’t coconut bras, would it? So naturally guests were convinced to release their inner hula-girl and whack a set of coconut shells on, along with straw hats to bust a move on the dance floor.
At their own leisure, guests could devour some sweet desserts from the ‘Sugar Shack’, a beautiful dessert station display, topped off with the cutest cake made by the talented Hey There, Cupcake! For wedding favours, Brandi + Tim’s favourite cookies were shipped from Hawaii itself, and packaged in individual pineapple-printed muslin bags for guests to take home at the end of the night.
Now, sit back, relax, and prepare to be swept away to a tropical oasis as you take a look at the gorgeous images from Brandi + Tim’s tropical wedding below!
