I can’t think of a better wedding to get my butt back into blogging gear, than Mai & Rachel’s. Not only did these fabulous ladies plan & execute the MOST fabulous DIY, luau-themed wedding, but they were Kara’s first clients with Capitol Romance Weddings & the result was M-A-G-I-C-A-L. Rachel & Mai also just watched Sadie for my while I was in Vermont on vacation – so even EXTRA rad points happening here. You guys are going to love this one though -> Hula lessons, fire knife dancers, BBQ, and MORE. So much DIY inspiration here & even the guests got into the Hawaiian spirit with their attire. You’re gonna love this one.
Our party was a DIY smorgasbord. We had so many helpers, including Kara, who kept us on target and grounded. We decided early on that we wanted a casual party with games, fun, and relaxo-time. The luau theme fit perfectly because we spend a good bit of time in Hawaii. The venue had to be indoor AND outdoor, and only Patapsco Female Institute fit the bill for us. It was beautiful, quirky, spacious, indoor but also outdoor, and roof-free for starry night dancing. It was also a blank slate that we could make our own.
