THE DRESS, LAVA & SAND...
August 4, 2007:
The beauty of white, champagne or ecru, back dropped by
It's another perfect wedding day in paradise on a stunning beach in Makena,
The couple stands wriggling their toes in the creamy sand, interspersed with fingers of black lava flow that stopped centuries ago at this beach. The dress back dropped by the sand, the lava and, of course, the swaying palms..........can it get any better than this? The beautyscape doesn't stop there. The next layer is of lacy-white wave edges that seem intentionally rolled in by the turquoise Pacific, just to dance at the wedding ceremony itself.
It is exactly what couples expect for a wedding in paradise.......often more.. And brides, every one of them, simply glow out here in the middle of the world's best color scheme bathed in that golden light.
Oh, one last note on the beach-dress relationship that only a girl can appreciate. No need to worry your pretty head about sand and/or water getting on THE dress. Sand flips right off, unlike dirt, leaving no stain. The water/sand combo dries quickly and brushes right off as well. It's no-fuss wonderful. I must add here that I can't guarantee the same carefree stance if you and your groom decide to take the full-body plunge (after taking the plunge) into the tempting, warm waters as some couples choose to do.
My only disappointment is they simply will never know how dreamy their wedding looks right from my little spot in the sand..........
