Laid-back & intimate, tropical scenes & pastel-colored skies – this relaxed Hawaiian beach wedding is a stunner. But what makes this destination wedding even sweeter is that Bride Zoe is a friend of Bridal Musings! (Cue the happy tears!)
Zoe is well versed in the wedding industry. Now the founder of Canadian retail brand Finding July, in the past has represented many of our favorite bridal designers such as Rime Arodaky, Alexandra Grecco, Watters & Laure de Sagazan. So it’s no surprise she was able to pull off this flawless Hawaiian destination wedding in just two months. Taking advantage of her beau Ziad’s family’s trip to Maui, the stylish couple called on a number of Hawaiian venues to see if they could make some beach wedding magic happen – and they absolutely did!
While we may not all be wedding pros like Zoe, she thankfully offers quite a fair amount of sage advice for anyone planning on a tight schedule. Knowing that all of their twenty-six guests would be making a vacation out of their wedding, the couple were flexible about which day of the week their wedding took place – giving them plentiful venue options with midweek availability even on such short notice.
And what if you don’t have the budget for a destination planner? Zoe says, “Ask your vendors.” If you’ve found anyone local you already love – photographer, florist, venue, etc – chances are they’ll have suggestions of other vendors they love to work with.
