Cynthia and Dan had a very fun and carefree wedding event and the luau theme they chose for their wedding was a perfect match for their easy-breezy style! Filled with entertainment and a lovely tropical feel, we absolutely loved this lively wedding event so much!
Their intimate wedding took place outdoors on the premises of the Marquand House, a guest house on the campus of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ. The foyer was beautifully decked out in lush greenery and Hawaiian florals in bright oranges and sunny yellows. Viburnum Designs wholly captured the island colors and flora. You really felt like you were on the Big Island on that summer afternoon!
Cynthia’s hair and makeup were done by Isabella Argueta that day and she was sure to add a gorgeous tropical flower to Cynthia’s hair. And Dan sported a vivid Hawaiian shirt for the occasion! In keeping with the theme, colorful leis were given to each guest in attendance at the wedding. Many of their guests even got into the spirit and wore their own Hawaiian-inspired attire! We were also thrilled to be working again with photographer Jeff Tisman. He captured the day’s events in photos, which included a “first look” with the happy couple.
Cynthia and Dan’s outdoor ceremony was so sweet. You could really see the love they share and the joy they felt on this special day. They just couldn’t keep from smiling through the ceremony!
After Cynthia and Dan recited their vows, it was time for the reception to begin. This entire wedding event was just impeccable! Kudos to Michele Musci from Sage Field Events for designing the most superb luau wedding! Guests were treated to beautiful Hawaiian music from Makalina and hot Hawaiian jazz from The Moonlighters that afternoon. Again, just perfect!
Although the wedding itself was small, an enormous amount of thought went into the design and no minute detail was overlooked. It was such a fun Male ‘ana! Congratulations to Cynthia and Dan!
