It was the radiant colour of the bridesmaid’s dresses that drew me into this wedding. Emerald was the pantone colour of the year for 2013. My sister-in-law was bridesmaid at a wedding that rocked green as the colour theme (and boy did they rock it well, it was a beautiful fresh Spring wedding), but I have been slightly disappointed that very few emerald weddings have dropped into my inbox.
Kaleolani and Jose certainly demonstrate that this is a colour that transcends last year’s trends. It works well for Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter. It is flattering, eye-catching and a little bit different.
That isn’t all that today’s wedding has to offer you. There is a beautiful guest book alternative, a signed ornament for the tree, beach portrait shops and bridesmaids that so clearly know how to party at a wedding…
Here is BTW Photography to tell us more about the big day:
“This wedding is one for the memory books. Simple, elegant, and earthy, Kaleolani and Jose’s wedding was beautiful in every sense, but particularly in an emotional sense. Surrounded by family and friends, the day was heavily focused on their love and commitment.
“Kaleo and Jose have a beautiful story of support and sacrifice. Jose is a bomb technician in the Army and spent a significant time in Afghanistan. Upon his return for a tour, he proposed to Kaleo right there on the tarmac. Ever since then, she has left her home state of Hawaii to be with Jose, as he moves around the country.
“Growing up in Hawaii, nature and the water play an important role in Kaleo’s life. Lake Tahoe gave Kaleo a small taste of home and served as a central meeting spot for Jose’s family from San Diego and others from Michigan. What was unique about this wedding, besides the beautiful backdrop, was the sense of family and excitement. It wasn’t just a wedding, but a reunion that lasted for days. Love was present on so many levels; but non more so than the “I do’s” that Kaleo and Jose shared.”
