Molii Gardens Wedding: George & Hannah

Hannah and George got married at Hau'ula Congregational Church, a beautiful Hawaiian church founded by George's great-grandfather in the early 1900s. True to its heritage, Sunday service is held in both English and Hawaiian. The reception, coordinated by Hannah and her 'ohana, was held at Moli'i Gardens at Kualao Ranch. George had not seen the lovely reception site with the Hawaiian fishpond until he arrived there after the ceremony. We think he loved it!

Wedding Photo Clothesline

A photo clothesline is a great conversation piece. It's also an easy, low cost way to entertain guests while they wait for the ceremony or reception to begin. All you need are some photos of the bride and groom and their families, some rustic looking jute string or pretty ribbon for your line and some small clothes pins. You can hang the photos in chronological or random order and even include a caption or short story on the back of each photograph. Be sure to include some beautiful photos from your outdoor engagement photo shoot!

You could include a second line for guest photos or bridal party photos. Ask guests to send in a photo prior to the wedding. The theme could be funny photos, baby photos, guest weddings or photos of the guest with the bride or groom way back when. Your guests will have fun looking at all the photographs.

If you had a photo clothesline at your wedding, email us a photo of it and we will post it here.
