It was a collection of found archived vintage Hawaiian botanical illustrations (and the couple's appreciation for rare and exotic flora) that so enamored bride and groom to be, Matt & Anne, that it shaped and defined every aspect of design for this lovely rustic and refined ranch wedding in the hills above Oahu's famed North Shore. The groom, a rare and exotic plant specialist, along with his lovely bride, set out to bring their passion for these rare botanical treasures to life. With the help of event planner and designer, Maggie Roberts of Pacific Aisles, each manuscript was carefully photographed, prepared and processed for design which would make special appearances throughout the wedding, including the couple's gorgeous letterpress wedding invitations to guest dining tables that were named after the couple's favorite exotic plants.
In keeping with theme, the event's design was a mix of old and new, exotic and beautiful, rustic and refined as the couple took a once abandoned barn and brought it back to life with their take on rustic island elegance.
The Event Design
Raw linens combined with luxurious satin, stunning arrangement featuring Hawaii's most gorgeous blooms. We just love how every detail was carefully planned to set the stage for Matt & Anne's found treasures and exotic island botanicals to shine.
