Next Featured Wedding Sneak Peek - Leslie and Greg

It is pure coincidence that our current and next Featured Wedding on cakelava.com would have a bride named Leslie (Lesley) and take place at the Moana Surfrider Resort in Waikiki. We knew when we stepped into the reception room which was dressed in soft buttery yellows, and ivories and saw some of our favorite vendors working their magic that Leslie and Greg would be a Featured couple. This wedding was special to us in many ways, aside from having a great couple to work with. Leslie and Greg were married on December 30, 2008, right after our other couple Kyla and Jen. They were officially our last wedding of 2008, and a wonderful way for us to say goodbye to 2008 and look forward to a another vibrant year of events. It was also the last wedding we did with floral designer Nicole Lomas of Peony Floral Designs, before she and her husband moved to San Diego. Over the years we've been working with Nicole, Rick and I have been continually impressed by her floral compositions. She is an extremely talented floral designer and Hawaii will truly miss her! For Leslie and Greg, Nicole designed lush english garden style centerpieces which included peonies, english garden roses, hydrangeas, and tulips. Leslie's bouquet was calla lillies, which figured prominently in her 4-tier champagne and ivory cake Rick designed using inspiration from her wedding gown which had a delicate filligree pattern.
The elegant, English country style reception room looked gorgeous, it really felt like Spring was here and love was in the air, even though it was the night before New Year's Eve and there was an enormous decorated Christmas tree in the room. We recall the buttery yellow color linen with a white overlay and the sweet hand-tied roses in the sash on the backside of the chairs and the guest name cards with the floral print on the side. Troy Michael Entertainment, one of our favorite DJ's provided the sounds to dance the night away. Our Featured Wedding images would not have been possible without photographer Frank Amodo of Amodo Photo whose images exquisitely captured Leslie and Greg's special day. We'd like to thank Frank for bringing our memories of our last wedding of 2008 back to life! We wish Leslie and Greg the best in their new life together!
