When San Diego couple, Carissa and Mike, set out to plan their destination Hawaii wedding, they knew that "bright" and "bold" and "colorful" would be the buzz words that would inspire their vintage Hawaiiana inspired intimate celebration.

Carissa already had her wedding dress picked out (a gorgeous, flowing, COBALT BLUE Amsale) and she knew that she would ask guests to wear WHITE, creating the perfect palette for bright, bold and colorful design. From there, Carissa set out to create their very own version of Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room, where Carissa and Mike were engaged, oceanside at Lanikuhonua on the island of Oahu.

Colorful chair covers and matching napkins, inspired from bright and bold colors of the traditional island style aloha shirt, were set at the family style dining table. Wooden Monkeypod Chargers dressed up the vintage Hawaiian inspired tabletop, complete with pineapple vases filled with fresh island tropicals, including colorful hibiscus, ginger and monstera. Vintage style hula nodders, that guests took home as favors, were a hit. They completed their intimate tiki lounge look with oversized wooden vases filled with lush tropical flowers and foliage, and illuminated Buri Lanterns, that lit up the night and set a perfect mood for a vintage inspired celebration in paradise.
