It was an honor to work with such an amazing team of wedding pros on this industrial glam wedding inspiration shoot! With amazing styling by Moana Events and beautiful photography from Mikkel Paige – this editorial shows a different side to Hawaii – one that is exquisite, chic, and totally unique for your island, destination wedding!
We chose an unoccupied industrial setting near downtown Honolulu to give a beautiful juxtaposition between utilitarian style and glamour. Bliss & Bones‘ marbled wedding invitation suite inspired the tabletop that Moana Events styled. Flooring tiles were flipped upside-down to show more texture and contrast with the pearl-inspired rose centerpieces designed by Florist Grand.
The place settings were set with antique gold flatware, hand-written love poems from Hawaii Calligraphy, formal black linen napkins, and it was all topped with a single bloom. Copper wire was added to Black Louis ghost chairs and also carried through on the cake topper.
Our stunning model Meaghan wore a gold Badgley Mischka gown and Whik’d Hawaii created a full on glam look for her with a chic updo and dramatic makeup. The long-stem bridal bouquet included hand-dipped golden roses and for her veil we applied gold foil to floor-length black tulle for an ultimate gilded touch!
