Want to plan a super intimate, elopement style wedding but still want to include your international family members? Fear not – there’s Skype! For Olesya + Jack’s destination wedding in Kauai, Hawaii, there was the ocean with a mountain view, the officiant and their American and Russian families watching from the comfort of their homes on Skype. How cool is that?! And so picture perfect tying the knot under an enchanting kamani tree with orchids overhanging and Oleysa in her feather-like, hand made lace Vera Wang gown, Helena. Heavenly!
Olesya + Jack | August 09, 2013 | St. Regis Princeville Resort, Kauai, HI | Dress Listing: Vera Wang, Helena
The Ceremony It was an intimate oceanfront ceremony under the canopy of a kamani tree with beautiful orchids overhanging from it…we exchanged vows at sunset. It was just the two of us, however our international (US and Russian) families were there with us on Skype. The ceremony took place in Hanalei Bay, in Kamani Cove that overlooks the breathtaking Pacific Ocean and Makana Mountain. We had a private Hawaiian-inspired officiant, dedicated wedding attendant, and an acoustic musician.
The Reception Later, after a professional photography session at sunset with an exquisite backdrop – the ocean framed by Makana Mountain and the striking Na-Molokama waterfall, there was a romantic seaside dinner with custom wine pairings by a St. Regis sommelier in a private cabana.
Olesya’s Dress Search It was the third Vera Wang dress I tried on. They all felt and looked beautiful and made everybody around say “aah” but this one was special and felt like the one made for me.
How Olesya Felt in Her Wedding Dress Like a princess in a fairy-tale.
Why Olesya Decided to Sell Her Wedding Dress This gown is so gorgeous and stunning… It isn’t fair for such a masterpiece not to see the light of day again. And hopefully it would make another gal as happy as I was.
