Logan + Kainoa

With comfort, closeness and fun as their top priorities, Logan and Kainoa’s Hawaiian wedding showcased their personality, as well as the love they hold for their friends and family.

Many heartfelt moments were had, as friends performed at the ceremony and the couple exchanged personalized vowels. The Grand Entrance set the tone to an exciting evening of games and performances, with the couple entering their reception to a Speak Easy act.

Romantic burgundy, vibrant tropical florals, wooden elements, and touches of gold perfectly intertwined a natural tropical look with a glamorous feel.

Nick + Stephanie

Upon meeting Stephanie and Nick it was evident that they share a deep love for one another. The team at Praeclara Events couldn’t have been any more excited to bring to life the couple special day.

Sunset Ranch on the North Shore of Oahu provided the perfect mixture of rustic charm and tropical essence for Stephanie and Nick’s Hawaiian wedding. The flora and fauna of the venue set the tone for the design. Deep orange bridesmaid gowns, tan and green groomsmen colors, complemented by native florals featuring pink and yellow perfected the tropical feel at the couples island wedding.

Omar + Shaleena

Surrounded by crystal blue water, lush palm trees and family from near and far, Shaleena and Omar’s romantic destination wedding in Fiji was an event we were all excited to be part of.

We had the honor of working with the couple from the very beginning. Their design vision consisted of three words; Moroccan, Peacock and Tropical. With limited resources available on the island, our creative team dreamt big and worked their magic to bring to life Shaleena and Omar’s special day. From selecting the dress to the wedding after party, Praeclara worked with the couple through the entire experience.

Neil + Angel

The day I met Angel and Neil, it was evident that they both shared an immense love for one another. Fun, joy and a love for life radiated from these two, making planning their big day extra special. Drawing inspiration from Neil’s linen of work as a horticulturist, the couple styled their event with a perfect blend of nature, elegance, and vibrancy.

Shaun + Kari

Have I ever mentioned how much I love animals at weddings?

Kari & Shaun made sure that their entire family, including their sweet pooch, was invited to their gorgeous Ranch wedding. A pastel pallet of blushing pink, soft peach and charismatic turquoise spoke fun vintage romance.

Heather + Candy

Congratulations to Heather & Candy! And thank you for allowing Praeclara to share in your absolutely breathtaking wedding!

Heather and Candy clearly put in some serious planning to create their fun 1930's speakeasy design. Whisky cocktails, fine cutlery, low brim hats and shimmering silk dresses, were seen throughout the wedding. A step back in time to celebrate the momentous occasion of Heather and Candy moving forward in life together.

Truly a special day where all love is treated equal and universal.

Christopher + Marisol

Set amongst lush tropical gardens, rolling hills and views of the sunset over the ocean, Christopher and Marisol's wedding was always going to be stunning.

The couple saw each other for the first time on their wedding day at the luxurious Royal Hawaiian Hotel. They traveled to the other side of the island of a stunning ceremony and reception on the North Shore. Whilst Mother Nature did give her blessing, this did not stop the couple and their guests from dancing the night away under the stars.

Kevin + Courtney

Courtney and Kevin are just two of the most genuine, creative people you are ever likely to meet.

We had so much fun planning Courtney and Kevin’s special day. It was wonderful to work with a couple who love to talk about design as much as we do!

Courtney and Kevin both share a creative love for design and carpentry, making rustic inspired pieces for their home. The couple incorporated the hobby that glued them together, into their wedding day by making most of their wedding furniture and décor. The craftsmanship was amazing!

Phil + Ashley

April 23rd, 2014

Phil and Ashley's story began in paradise. Phil had just moved to Hawaii from Australia for work when he crossed paths with the lady who would capture his heart.

The Praeclara Team had an amazing time working with Phil and Ashley through the Full Wedding Planning process to tell the story. The couple held their wedding day celebrations at Loulu Palm Estate, inviting guests to a relaxing beach side tropical cocktail reception . We created an event that reflected the couples love and personality of relaxation, class and fun with friends.
