Antonio Sabato, Jr. and Cheryl Moana Marie: Intimate Island Destination Wedding

On September 28, 2012

After a lot of hard work, collaboration, conference calls and flights, I’m finally back from Kaua’i, Hawaii, where I planned the most beautiful island wedding for Antonio Sabato, Jr. and his gorgeous wife, Cheryl Moana Marie.  People.com announced their nuptials earlier this week and exclusively revealed some of their stunning wedding photos today; check ‘em out.

This wedding was so much fun for me to plan and design.  Obviously, Cheryl and Antonio are both strikingly beautiful, individually and as a pair.  However, they are just as lovely on the inside.  My time with the couple planning and executing their special day was filled with laughter and a lot of love.  I finally found a bride whose sense of humor can keep up with mine; Cheryl is hilarious!  With that said, here are some photos and details that you won’t see in People Magazine:

I made my way to the beachfront estate where Antonio and Cheryl hosted close family and friends the day before their destination wedding.  After doing a venue walk through and going over the fine details (and after Antonio finished a swim in the ocean), the three of us posed for a pre-wedding photo.

Drive time from the airport in Lihue to my hotel should have been about 45 minutes.  It took me 2 hours because I kept seeing gorgeous scenery like what’s behind me in the photo and kept stopping to take pictures.  I felt sorry for the strangers trying to enjoy their time at the ocean whom I often interrupted to take my picture;)

The happy couple so kindly gave Rodan + Fields gift bags (as seen in the photo) full of skincare awesomeness to their guests!  Everyone enjoyed the sun responsibly.  A special shout out to Allison Sotelo of R + F for her hard work in getting the gift bags to Hawaii.

One of the best parts of the wedding was getting to spend a little time with my dear friend and Cheryl’s Best Friend, Carina Sap.  Almost exactly 6 years ago, I planned Carina’s wedding to a former member of the USA Ski Team.  We’ve been buddies ever since.
