With simple, rustic, and natural beauty that is perfect for the laid-back Hawaiian island of Kauai, today’s exquisite wedding photographed by Blenda Montoro captures the passion and romance between Aimee and Kodi perfectly.
From Blenda Montoro – Most people think of a Hawaii wedding with a beach setting and beautiful orchids; a tropical destination dream with windy palm trees and the waves crashing. As beautiful as that is, Kodi and Aimee wanted a unique Kauai wedding that exposed the pastures and raw textures of Kauai with a feminine garden touch. They wanted the rustic country setting Kauai offered and Kodi’s family’s pastureland at Kahili Mountain was just the right fit with endless views of misty mountains in the backdrop.
From Blenda Montoro – Aimee’s simple elegance drew her towards garden roses, hydrangeas, and white décor paired with raw wood and the ever so feminine rose gold details to match the crisp greenery. Aimee knew she wanted to incorporate rose gold as a metallic “pop” when her fiancé proposed to her with a rose gold diamond ring. The pear-shaped engagement ring and hand piece sparkled in the sun as they whispered their vows and a beautiful rainbow came out just before they said, “I do.” It was a true tropical Hawaii day and the simplicity of mother nature was captured along with their romance.
The simple floral centerpieces and arch were constructed from rustic Kiawe wood Kodi cut and Aimee’s painted rose gold recycled wine bottles. The centerpieces included raw cut flowers that gave the tables an intimate picnic feel. They were all so perfectly imperfect, ranging in different shapes and sizes. A handmade maile lei draped the arch and Kodi’s shoulders while Aimee wore a simple traditional wedding lei made of fragrant pikake.
The day could not have been more tropical with beaming sunshine on the arch and dark clouds in the background creating sporadic showers. The Garden Isle revealed its fresh mountain air with skies full of rainbows and light showers. Something that was considered lucky, perfection, and a blessing by the San Diego and Kauai native on their wedding day.
