How amazing would an escape on a beautiful sailing yacht be right now? (my three months of lockdown have me more desperate than usual!) This gorgeous sailboat inspiration styled by Hawaii wedding florist DESIGNS BY HEMINGWAY and captured by Dallas wedding photographer ALLEN TSAI depicts the most romantic way to elope. Debbie tells us, "I have always been attracted to a beautiful sailing yacht & loved the idea of having a romantic wedding on the coastal seas! The classic BENETEAU SAILING YACHT “Vanessa” docked in Honolulu, Hawaii is a real stunner! Our sunset elopement cruise started out at the Ala Wai boat HarboUr & sailed out across the beautiful skyline of Honolulu over to Waikiki. The smooth sailing crystal blue Pacific water & the iconic view of Diamond Head made a gorgeous backdrop for an unforgettable moment for the couple! For the floral decor, I combined floral blooms with a natural looking European/tropical feel with accents of white orchids from Maui. Designing with coastal accents in the details on the cake was so inspiring with coral and oyster shells with natural sand textured lines. Our lovely bride wore a beautiful white flowy silk chiffon dress from designer LEANNE MARSHALL that looked like a scene out of Mama Mia! It was the perfect evening with a sunset toast to the couple and an incredible view of the Honolulu city lights as we cruised about."
