This gorgeous outdoor wedding in the lush setting of Maui's Haiku Mill is perfection. The San Francisco couple are self-declared "polar opposites in just about everything." "We wanted a combination of rustic elements, representing (the groom's) outdoorsy side, and French elegance for my inner-Francophile and love of city life." ~ The Bride
Regarding the wedding design, their challenge was to strike a balance between rustic and elegant. "The French elegance is everywhere at the Mill - in the chandeliers, the Cane House, the antiques that Sylvia brought back from France. It was possibly the most beautiful place we've ever laid eyes upon."
We used a lot of burlap and curly willow branches to add a feeling of roughness or rustic to the day. Robyn's ideas for how to integrate flowers into the chandeliers made it feel like the chandeliers had been there forever and the flowers had just grown into them. The use of mercury glass added an elegant touch and the baby's breath made everything seem light and ethereal. I've always wanted a lot of chandeliers for my wedding and I got my wish. To me, nothing says French more than crystal chandeliers. Seating hearts were hand-sewn by Teresa, the maid of honor, out of burlap ribbon to match the rustic elements. ~ The Bride
