Can you believe this is Hawaii? No, me neither... And that is a testament to Masha's artistic vision and creativity! I was so fortunate to have met Masha at one of our weddings this past year and when Masha shared her desire to throw a special elopement surprise for her friends, I was honored to be asked to flower their canoe for a special celebratory float on a little river tucked away on the island.

Hawaii is, of course, known for its abundance of beach, sand, surf and waves and rightly so as it offers the most stunning tropical landscapes, but Hawaii is so ecologically diverse and really offers a rich tapestry of landscapes and scenery to explore. Masha had eyed this gorgeous river mouth and wanted to create the most epic elopement finale for her friends so they would have a unique moment to remember their day. I'll let the photos speak for themselves.. enjoy!
