Nestled amidst the lush greenery and breathtaking landscapes of Maui, the Haiku Mill has long been revered as a fairy-tale setting for dream weddings. But when a bride, herself a gifted florist, embarks on the journey of a destination wedding at this enchanting venue with gorgeous florals by Bella Bloom Maui and event design by Lovella Lifestyle, the result is nothing short of magical. Join us on an exquisite journey through the love story of Jane and John, as captured by the talented lens of Jenny Jean Photography.
The couple incorporated their beloved fur babies into their wedding by naming their signature cocktails after their cats! The bride’s signature drink was a Mochi – a refreshing pineapple mojito, while the groom’s signature drink was a Nori, a coconut Negroni. The bride also did all her own stationery and illustrations, including their adorable drink menu!
Bella Bloom did an amazing job with this classic and timeless floral design. The main focal flowers were roses, ranunculus, and orchids. The bridal bouquet was a classic white and blush bouquet, while deeper berry tones were incorporated throughout the rest of the design. The bride is actually a Canadian-based florist and Bella Bloom welcomed her with open arms. In true Aloha spirit, they invited her to their beautiful floral studio to design her own bridal bouquet and boutonniere. This was incredibly meaningful to Angela, and an experience she will treasure forever.
Angela had a custom 14-karat gold plated locket made by Haiku Lane Jewelry to honour her late father. While her father was not there physically to walk her down the aisle; he was in the palm of her hands as she grasped her locket and held her flowers close. She felt her father’s love as she walked herself down the aisle towards D’Arcy, ready to marry the man of her dreams. Marvin Tevaga provided the most beautiful live music, playing the ukulele and singing “can’t help falling in love with you” as the ceremony began.
The couple also changed things up by surprising their guests with their first dance as their grand entrance to the reception, with custom choreography to the song “Forever and Ever, Amen”. – The couple never saw the venue prior to the wedding day. The element of surprise was very important to both of them. This wedding truly was an enchanted secret garden wedding, as none of the guests knew the location of the venue. Their wedding invitations read “secret venue in Maui, Hawaii.” 40 of their closest family and friends flew to Maui while having no idea where they would celebrate the couple. Angela and D’Arcy had all the guests shuttled to the venue, with a personalized “welcome video” for every person. As their guests stepped out of the shuttle they were greeted by the magic of Haiku Mill; where Old-World Europe meets natural Hawaii splendor. It was truly an unforgettable experience for their guests, and the couple had the perfect day celebrating with their loved ones.
A mauve-colored red velvet flavor? Yes please! Angela and D’Arcy’s custom two tiered cake features a Hawaiian guava tier and a mauve-colored velvet chocolate tier to fit the wedding colors.
