We’re All About the Details!
The Wedding Arbor
The couple designed this wedding arbor and built it themselves – bamboo sticks, white and blue linen and all the floral arrangements. A DIY idea for those who plan of having a simple yet beautiful beach themed wedding.
All of the wedding signages are hand-built by Tom and Helen from re-purposed wood. Recycling different materials to create this wonderful nautical elements is one way to keep the nature-loving vibe in this beautiful beach.
The Starfish Bridal Flip-flops
These bridal flip-flops are designed by one of Helen’s closest friend. The studded starfish design is so beautiful that it fits perfectly in the overall theme. Even her white-tip pedicure looks stunning.

Vendors who were flexible and easy to work with plus the perfect weather fashioned this wonderful moment together and made this event extra special not only to the wedded couple but also to their family and close friends. A great deal of love and creativity is seen throughout the wedding!
Heed this Advice
It’s your wedding; it should be about the Bride and Groom — no one else! The style you like, the food you like, the decor and music you like! Decide up front on things the Bride and Groom each really want and do not want as part of the ceremony/reception. There will be more expenses than you planned for; include a contingency in your budget to cover unexpected costs. ~Helen McLaughlin/Bride
