Wedding Wednesday: Maelani and Sheamus's Wedding

Maelani and Sheamus's Wedding Reception is close to my heart. Maelani is a good friend as well as the sister of my dear friend Meg. We had to chance this past December, to travel Thailand in style with both Maelani, Shamus, Meg and Del. After the trip I feel in love with Shamus and the two of them together. They are the perfect match. This can probably explain why the two were determined to tie the knot and waste no time. They had a small and intimate "elope" style wedding ceremony and small dinner in San Diego back in November. I will be highlighting that day tomorrow in my blog post. More to come...

For the reception they decided to host the party in Maelani's home town of Honeoye Falls, NY. 48 guests from 6 states and 3 countries. Intimate, global and perfectly unique. In the months leading up to the day, I had to pleasure of helping Mae with some inspriation for the theme and just a general tightening up of the look and feel. It was a blast to work together, as I loved how she wanted to tie in so much of the two cultures. The Australian and Thai cultures were present in every detail of the day.

The table numbers were handmade by a close childhood girlfriend. Favors were votives were wrapped in thai silk that her mom brought from Bangkok. They used an old vintage suitcase for guests to submit farewell wishes on postcards, which was very fitting for the avid travelers. The very talented Meg from Worboys Design, designed the menu's, escort cards, signs and memory of's. The cocktail hour was kicked off with gorgeous passed hors d'ouevres and ended with a 3 course meal, finishing with Australian sticky date pudding. The women snuggled up in the silk Thai wraps as they sipped on the Australian wine. To top off the night they had a photobooth which definitely was a major highlight. Many of the International guests had never seen the concept so they embraced the idea and had a blast with it!

What a simply beautiful night. Cheers to Maelani and Shamus!
