Pirates have invaded The Barns at Maple Valley Farm!!
Kidding, Kidding… Although that would be my dream event theme right there! I think that would make a great future post… how to elegantly style your event with an upscale pirate vibeĀ šŸ™‚
These wedding themes, while notĀ pirate, are bring the essence of Hawaii to West Virginia!
The first wedding was held a couple Saturday’s ago and literally brought the place where the bride and groom fell in love, to their guests. Their favors for the guests were small vials of sand from Hawaii! Their guests were even encouraged to wear Hawaii themed shirts!
The second wedding was held this past weekend and wasĀ a reception for their family and friends since they got married a few weeks ago in Hawaii! They had a pirate corn hole board (love it!), orchid leis, starfish and seashell centerpieces, custom pinkĀ yankee candles for the guests, a nautical garter, and a Makaki’i.
What is a Makaki’i? (Don’t worry,Ā I hadn’t heard of it either) The bride informed me it is a Hawaiian Warrior Helmet, hung on a car rearview mirror of doorframe of the house for symbolize protection and safety.
We LOVE seeing how couplesĀ incorporate bringing a destination forĀ their guests to enjoy without having to hop on a plane!
It’s YOUR wedding day, so be as creative, unique, and personal as you want!
