We just adore a sweet summer garden wedding and there is truly no place better to set the scene than the Grace Mayflower Inn + Spa. Add the charming Saira and Kai to the mix and we knew it would be nothing short of perfection!
We were granted the very lucky opportunity to collaborate with Saira, one of the sweetest, kindest people I’ve ever had the chance to know. But really, that’s how all of our couples are so we fit well together right away. Over the course of the planning period, Saira and Kai were living and traveling in between New Mexico and Hawaii as Kai is active duty military. Being that these two are worldly travelers and know an amazing place when they visit one, they had their heart set on the Mayflower Inn from the day Kai popped the question!
It’s natural to assume that planning a wedding from such a distance would present its own set of challenges and difficulties, but being able to learn more about who Saira and Kai are, as well as the vision they had in mind only added to how personalized their day was — and how much fun we had building their wedding weekend!
Surrounded by meticulously cared for gardens, the Mayflower Inn set the inspiration for our blush, ivory, and green aesthetic. Perfecting this summer wedding was the floral texture present in our stationery, linens, and, of course, floral decor!
My favorite detail? The escort card display that we created to replicate Saira’s bouquet Just For You Floral Designs hand crafted. Instead of finding a space to preserve her bouquet amidst their packing and travels, we designed this as momentum that will forever remind the of the memories they created on that warm summer day.
Saira and Kai, thank you, thank you, thank you for allowing us to be part of your adventure! We look forward to following your travels and seeing all the excitement life has in store for you! XOXOXO
