professional wedding pics: the details

we finally received our professional wedding pictures the other week! it’s been so exciting to look back at that wonderful day, and to see things that flew by!  i thought i would take the time to showcase some of the little things of the day…

{ the dress }   Pronovias Malaga

I purchased my dress at Casablanca.  It is one of the best bridal salons in hawaii! (at least it is in my opinion) the service and selection is fantastic!!!  they truly are such wonderful people and do everything they can to help you find your perfect dress!

{ rings } custom-made by The Diamond Specialists

i love this place! while it does not have the most posh storefronts,  the services is honest, helpful, and wonderful!   you never feel intimidated or pressured while you’re there, and he gives you so much information, you know exactly what you’re getting!  i highly recommend them!!! (and he’ll clean your rings whenever you go! lol)

{ shoes }  Giuseppe Zanotti Chiffon Bow Sandal

these shoes were my birthday present from nolan. in my quest for wedding shoes, i stumbled upon this pair online. after this discovery, no other shoe could even compare.  there was a lot of “well, this shoe is nice and all, but not as nice as the ones with the bow!”  thankfully, my style birdies (hi cece & kristen) must have chirped in nolan’s ear, because they were mine as of may 2011!  —thanks girls!

{ cake topper }  etsy, The Pretty Pixie

i was never one to care about cake toppers, but blame it on wedding blogs, i just HAD TO get these cake toppers!  they are so cute and you could get it with your dog. SOLD!  there are many different shops on etsy that sell some form of these cake toppers. i just happened to pick the pretty pixie.  If you order during peak wedding season, she processes the orders by wedding date. so even though i placed my order many many months in advance, i only received it about a few weeks before my wedding. the seller does work well with you (you send photos of yourself, the clothes and hair, and she’ll send you photos when she’s almost finished for you to approve/make  changes)…she does good work, the only negatives i found were the wait and that ollie looked a little more like a cat than a dog…lol.

{ garter & ring pillows } etsy, JL Weddings

This order was received very quickly, and they all looked exactly as it does on the etsy website photos (i’ve had some experiences in the past where what you get, doesn’t really look like the photos)  i was very pleased with it! very beautiful and great quality! {sorry i don’t have a closeup of the pillows}

{ hairpiece } etsy,  Percy Handmade

i had initially wanted a birdcage veil, but thought it was more vintage-glam than vintage-sweet…same goes for a bedazzled hair broach.  so i thought a flower would be more appropriate, but i didn’t want to use fresh flowers.  so of course i went to etsy and found this sweet flower with feathers! it was so pretty, i had to order it.  Shipping took some time, as it was coming from Australia, but the quality was nice, and it was exactly what i was looking for!

and lastly, my absolute favorite…so much so that i wish i were my own bridesmaid, my bridesmaid dresses!!!

{ bridesmaid/flower girl dresses } etsy, JEWEL NUMKKI

it all came together so perfectly. perfect color. perfect fabric. perfect style. cece is fabulous, fantastic, and talented. and i’m not just saying it because she’s my very best friend.

thank you cece!!!  hopefully now that she’s finished sewing 5 bridesmaids dresses and a flower girl dress, she can get back to sewing a new line for her etsy shop!

hope you all enjoyed this post. i’ll probably post 1 or 2 more…
