Tropical Fun Wedding of Alfrey and Anthony at Sugar Beach Events

On This Day We Two Shall Wed…
On July 10th, 2014 we celebrated the marriage of Alfrey and Anthony

Alfrey and Anthony dreamed of traveling from their native New Zealand to have a tropical wedding in Hawaii. When they found Sugar Beach they knew that they had found their “heaven in the tropics” location.

Thank you Jessica Pearl of Pearl Wedding Photography for allowing us to tell this Maui wedding story through your beautiful images.

Gorgeous tropical flowers by Bella Bloom and hues of yellow, orange, fuchsia pink, purple, and lime green set the scene. We especially adored the bride’s bird of paradise bouquet, which looked striking against her white dress. The groom and groomsmen emphasized the tropical theme with their hibiscus-patterned ties.

tropical wedding decor

The reception layout and decor felt really fresh and unique. Burlap runners, lime napkins, and brown bamboo chargers from wedding planner Tori Rogers added nice pops of texture and color. Ribbon streamers and poms made a playful backdrop to the buffet and dessert tables.

Hearts symbolizing love were scattered throughout the celebration. Light-up hearts adorned the location, “Better Together” hearts were showcased in a vase, and a rustic heart hung above the head table. The Guest Book was a wooden tree with a heart at the bottom engraved by Miss B Calligraphy.

first dance under the lanterns

Music was a meaningful part of Alfrey and Anthony’s relationship, and these songs told a story of love and lasting friendship. Their first dance as husband and wife took place in the 20×20 wooden structure custom sized around the 16×16 dance floor. They were under a large cluster of white paper lanterns of various sizes. It was very romantic. It was heavenly. It was the one moment of the day that belonged all to them.
