On October 10, the long-awaited launch of Hawaii Wedding Style’s Fall/Winter Digital Edition— their first release after a two-year pause— was commemorated with an amazing one-night event, exclusive to members of the local wedding industry and soon-to-be brides and grooms. Event planning and design company Summer House Hawaii partnered to bring this stellar evening to its fruition, hosted and serviced by PESCA Waikiki Beach. Ocean Dreamer’s sophisticated floral arrangements paired perfectly with the stunning ocean and skyline views, complementing the upbeat ambiance emitted through music, emceeing, and lighting by Exquisite Vibes Entertainment.

Upon arrival, guests were greeted with simply sweet KOHO Chocolates and special gifts for live, on-site personalization, delicately handcrafted by Elissa of EV Calligraphy throughout the night. Once the evening had settled, guests — each with their On the Rock craft custom ice refreshment in hand— were treated to a sensational fashion showcase featuring stunning designs from Eleanor’s Bridal, Magnolia White, Miyuki Liem Bridal, and Kini Zamora. Paired with each designer look, Ben Bridge Jeweler handpicked gorgeous jewelry pieces from collections of Mikimoto, Bella Ponte, Roberto Coin, and more. Hair and makeup was finished by a specially-curated beauty team composed of artists Get Glammed with Alice, Stasia Marie, and Reniel May Beauty.

Before the night’s end, lucky winner Chelsea Sasaki returned home with her giveaway prize: an elegant pair of Mikimoto Akoya Cultured Pearl Earrings, gifted by Ben Bridge Jeweler, who also positioned an elegant boutique in the event’s private dining room.

An extraordinary beginning to a new era, Hawaii Wedding Style’s comeback edition and launch event left industry insiders feeling both excited and inspired.
