I am a beach baby. The salt air, blue water, and warmth makes my heart sing. Originally from Hawaii, there was a time when snow and Winter sounded amazing and exotic to me! After spending much of my adult life on the "Mainland," I fell in love with a Minnesota man, and had seen my share of brutal winters. When we started planning our own wedding, it was easy - Destination: Hawaii. I wanted an intimate affair, on the beach, with a lovely luncheon at theWaioli Tea Room in Manoa Valley, and warmth - I wanted to be warm - Done & done!
The Destination Wedding has become a "one stop shop." A few clicks on the keyboard, and you can have a wedding planned, and ready to go in less than a few hours! Once you arrive, you unpack and enjoy - right through your honeymoon. I recently interviewed Bride-to-be "Sharon," who has chosen S&C to help with beauty services at her destination wedding. Sharon and her Fiance LOVE Hawaii, and with a brother living on the island of Oahu, they visit often and know their way around. Sharon had great in-site for other couples thinking of having a destination wedding.
Sharon wants an intimate " toes in the sand " wedding, away from the hustle & bustle of Waikiki. She has chosen beautiful Waimanalo Beach - white sand, small islands off shore, clear water -it's perfect! With 4 bridesmaids and groomsmen on board, they sent out 91 invitations - They are expecting 40 will be able to make the trip. To accommodate the loved ones who can't make it, Sharon and her Groom are having a large reception upon their homecoming.
