Courtney Carvalho and Christopher Hammerstone kept it simple, natural and elegant in terms of decor for their special day. "Merriman's Kapalua needs very little dressing up—it's an incredible space and location that really speaks for itself," Chris explains. I just went along with the essence of Merriman's, as the venue itself had so much to offer. I was inspired by the location, so we wanted to incorporate beach elements as well—the vessels of sand, starfish and King Protea centerpieces," she says. Photography by Dmitri & Sandra

The bridal party wore smoky grey J.Crew dresses with coral jewelry. Courtney was beautiful in an elegant mermaid silhouette with cascading ruffles.
