Krewe of Kamehameha - Mardi Gras Meets Hawaii

One of my dear clients who I befriended via Cheryl of Orchid Isle Weddings & Events when we worked on her wedding a couple years ago contacted Cheryl and I to help her with another big milestone event & celebration. It's a combination of anniversaries and milestone birthdays. Alicia wants a fun and festive but chic event. Since some of the honorees live in Louisiana, they thought it would be fun to have a New Orleans meets Maui kind of concept. These aren't the final save the dates, but just concepts we came up with. Obviously not Mardi Gras colors, but she wasn't tied to them, she just wanted bold and festive. So I decided to use her direction of fleur de lis with a tropical twist and go with vibrant colors. I think I like the orange and teal combination the best.
I used a Hawaiian Aloha font which is kind of resonant of vintage signage you see all around Hawaii. Still waiting to hear back from Alicia, but it'll be a FUN and FESTIVE event because Alicia and her family go all out for these events. Alicia is such a joy to work with. She's so appreciative of everything and it's nice to know that clients such as herself come back to do other events with the vendors she enjoyed working with 2 years ago.
Believe it or not, many of her guests at her wedding haven't been back to the islands since their wedding which was over 2 years ago so this will be a fun way for everyone to get together and have a good time and celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. Life is short, so having fun with those you love and care about is very important and what's better than having a big bash to celebrate love and friendships!
