Destination Hawaii Real Wedding Feature - Melissa & Cameron

A Get Away Destination Hawaii Wedding - Melissa & Cameron

745A9983

Meet newlyweds Melissa and Cameron. Melissa and Cameron met when they were just in the 3rd grade and became fast friends. Time and school quickly parted them, but by age 16 they were in each other's lives again and they quickly fell in love (though, as Melissa reports, Cameron wouldn't kiss her until 9 months after they were dating). Both Melissa and Cameron live life with adventure in their heart. Cameron is in the Navy and Melissa is currently pursuing her passions in aviation, fitness and make up design. With their adventurous spirits there was no question that their wedding would be full of love, adventure, and that little feeling you get right before you leap.

Planning the Wedding On a Tight Budget

After they got engaged, stress set in. Melissa had always dreamed of her wedding, but what wasn't a part of  that dream was the anxiety that set in. "We had only three months to put it together. We had a pretty small budget. $3000. Also, my father-in-law promised us a honeymoon somewhere. After about a month of stressing over how to pay for things like: locations, photography, flowers, invitations, announcements, cake, food, entertainment, etc. I text my soon-to-be saying why don’t we get married in Hawaii and spend the rest of our honeymoon there. And so we did!"

That $3,000  covered their airfare, minister, marriage certificate fees, her wedding dress, photographer, cake, and flowers.

How Did They Do It?

They got married on a beach in Oahu and used the wedding planning service, Hawaiian Barefoot Weddings , which according to Melissa, was one of the best decisions they made. Hawaiian Barefoot Weddings took care of the beach permit, photographs, cake, marriage certificate, and supplied the family with fresh flower leis. Then, they were blessed with a family that was supportive and parents who covered their rental car, hotel, and reception dinner.

Everything was close knit.  

Melissa and Cameron truly wanted to focus their wedding on them. They wanted to only have immediate family present, an outdoor and Christian based ceremony.

Papering the Bride

Melissa got ready with her mom and two of her little sisters in her hotel room. She was only a little bit (20 minutes) late.

Wedding Ceremony

 Her father, David, walked her down the sandy shore aisle.

Walking down the Aisle He most definitely got teary eyed, and Melissa could not contain her excitement upon seeing her groom.

Wedding Ceremony DecorationsleisAnd as part of the Hawaiian beach ceremony, they handed out leis!

Cameron's brothers were his groomsmen (dressed in Hawaiian shirts) and Melissa's sisters were her bridesmaids (dressed in mint). Melissa's father walked her down the aisle, sharing in that sweet moment of passing his daughter over to her new husband. The mothers were tearing up and everyone was smiling. This was a marriage that they had known was in the works for years.

Wedding Party Full of Family

"Things that people remember about our wedding are: the white sandy beach, the sunset, the fresh flower leis, the bubbly, the coconut cake and the strawberry shortcake, and the turtles that joined us at the end of the ceremony. Things that I will remember are: the minister and his wife, who coordinated the entire ceremony, the beautiful way that the sky met the waves of the ocean, the sunset, and above all seeing my soon-to-be husband standing among our closest relatives waiting to take my hand."

Special Little Details and Accessories  

Though Melissa wasn't worried about having her wedding be traditional, she did decide to adhere to the tradition of having something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. Something NewWedding Jewlery

For her something old, she attached a heart pendant that belonged to her mother-in-law's grandmother to her wedding garter. Then for her something new,  she wore  a silver bracelet gifted to her by her mother for her birthday just a few months before the wedding. Her something borrowed was really rather creative. On the morning before the ceremony her and her husband went for a walk on the beach and picked up a single white stone from the sand. Borrowing the stone from the ocean, she hid it in her bouquet for the ceremony. At the end of their honeymoon she returned it by tossing it back out to sea. Then finally, as her something blue she wore blue crystal earrings. Wedding Bouquet Another little detail for her wedding that was particularly special was her gorgeous bouquet made by her husband's grandmother. It was a waterfall bouquet of white Lilies, hints of green leafs, and subtle small crystal accents at the center of each flower. The something extra these crystals added is simple proof of what a bouquet accessory (or really any wedding accessory) can do to make each wedding detail special. It is obvious from her photographs that Melissa was a glowingly happy Bride. When asked what her advice would be to Brides, particularly those that are on a tight budget, she said "Go with the flow and stay true to yourselves...In the end there are a few key things that will make your wedding perfect. Make those things happen and let the rest be." weddingques3 Be sure to submit your dream wedding to be featured!

Musts for a Beach Themed Wedding

 

 Musts for a Beach Themed WeddingWhy a Beach Wedding is an Affordable Option

Summer is just around the corner, and if you are living in sunny California, it may even feel like summer now! If you are newly engaged and planning for a Summer wedding, you may be considering a romantic wedding on the beach. Even though the beach wedding style is often considered laid back and relaxed, there is still a lot of planning and careful touches from how to do your hair for that beach humidity to keeping those centerpieces from looking like a tourist shop ( unless that is the way you want to go!) that you will need to pay attention too. Here are some items to help you keep your beach wedding theme cohesive, classy, and full of that summer love'n! 1. Lets start with you!

Wedding Collectibles - Aqua Bead Foot Jewelry

When a lot of brides dream up a beach wedding they think of effortless curls, soft flowing bridal gowns, and their bare feet in the sand. Now, think back to the last time you were at the beach. What did you feet look like at the end of the day?? Not exactly the cleanest look? There are three things we would like to suggest for your barefoot wedding plans. First, get a a pedicure! Might as well start with your absolute best foot forward and start off with clean, manicured toes. Second, have wet wipes available . This way after the ceremony and before your reception you can wipe down your feet. This would be particularly important if you do not have a lot of time in-between the ceremony and reception.IMPORTANT: Don't wipe you feet down and then stick them directly back into the sand: You need to wait till they are completely dry again or else you will just have sand stuck to your feet! And lastly, bare feet does not necessarily mean you feet must be 100% bare. In other words, accessorize with some bling! Foot jewelry works wonderfully with a beach themed wedding because it adds to that easy beauty and almost bohemian tone that the soft waves and sand invite. The foot jewelry pictured above, our "Pearl and Rhinestone", or our "Shell" foot jewelry would be a perfect addition to your beach wedding. 2. For the Ceremony: Wedding Collectibles - Beautiful Mother of Pearl Shell Ring Pillow You won't need too much beach decor if you are having your wedding ceremony at the beach because ....welll...what more do you need than the rolling waves, soft sands, and sunset in the background? What you can do is use beach themed items for the ceremony. For example you can have sea shells or smooth rocks line your aisle way instead of flower petals and starfish will always add a unique and romantic touch. Also, you can add a seaside touch to the traditional items in a ceremony such as the ring bearer pillow, the unity candle, or for the sand pouring. 3. At the Reception: Wedding Collectibles - Tropical Breeze Cake Topper There are going to be a lot of ways to incorporate your seaside wedding theme at your wedding reception, but one that you really cant skip on is the wedding cake and wedding cake topper. If you have a beach theme running throughout and then you have a plain Jane wedding cake with a traditional wedding cake topper it will have the similar look as if someone wore a business suit to go to enjoy the beach. Plus, a beach theme provides you with a fun opportunity to get creative with your wedding cake topper.
