A Tropical Destination Wedding at Sky Dweller Estate in Maui, Hawaii
Kayla Koepke (25 and a teacher) and Josh Robbins (25 and in IT) wanted to do something different for their nuptials, so they had an intimate destination wedding at Sky Dweller Estate in Maui, Hawaii. The island's naturally beautiful landscaping inspired the outdoor tropical-themed celebration, brought to life through bright pinks, oranges and purples—from Kayla's round orchid and rose bouquet to the vibrant groomsmen vests and ties that matched the bridesmaid dresses. The ceremony took place on the lawn, where an oceanic view in the distance served as the natural backdrop. Kayla followed the colorful petals down the aisle, leading to the wedding arch draped in tulle, where Josh waited for her. Trish Barker Photography captured the reception, where three king-size dining tables covered in bright orange linens seated guests for the celebration. Josh and Kayla sat at their sweetheart table that stood out from the rest, dressed in a purple tablecloth with a flower arrangement designed by Damselfly Designs cascading down the front. The cake—filled with passionfruit flavors and decorated with purple orchids down the side—embodied the tropical theme, and hula dancers and fire entertainers filled the evening with traditional performances. Of all the details, the table set up for Kayla's late brother won our hearts over. "Josh and I not only had a table in Kody's favorite color to honor him, but we had a place setting for him as well," Kayla says. "We felt his love the day and night of our wedding, and we know his spirit was with us through it all." Check out more details from this inspirational island wedding, below.
