Pacific Weddings

"I loved the idea of a beachfront wedding in a garden style setting, a la Olowalu Plantation House. It allows you to have the beautiful ocean setting combined with elegance," says Lisa Jucco of her marriage to Hunter MacLean. Inspired by the iconic Hermes oragne, the couple hoped to infuse the natural beauty of the island with artistic, modern touches in shades of khaki, grey and white, accented in coral. Belle Destination Weddings & Events coordinator Jane Park unified the couple's unique style to create their dream wedding. They also enlisted the help of Aloha Catering for a delicious, island-inspired meal. Garnish Events created mouthwatering specialty cocktails and photographers Rebecca and Jonathan Adkisson of Tamiz Photography captured the special day.

Standing in a beautiful lace Monique Lhuillier gown, Lisa breathed in the moments before she walked down the aisle. Tied gingerly around a delicate array of white hydrangea, peonies, lisianthus, and grey succulents was a subtle detail dear to her heart: a pendant given to her late grandmother as an anniversary gift years before.

The groomsmen donned matching khaki J.Crew suits and vivid coral ties to echo Hunter's tiimeless look, distinguished by his vintage Hermes tie.

The elegant celebration commenced amidst chandeliers, white and Lucite chiavari chairs, artful baroque frrames and delicate metallic linens that transformed the seaside setting into a modern dreamscape.

Lisa's bridesmaids traded beautiful vibrant robes for delicate, sweeping chiffon in the same subtle khaki shade. The entire bridal party adorned their hair with a striking cymbidium orchid.
