This past Friday evening Derek and I headed out to a beautiful estate in Waialua to attend Kalani and Joyce's wedding rehearsal. The venue Kalani and Joyce chose was a gorgeous property and it was a beautiful night.
When we arrived we were so excited to see the bridal party. It was great to see some of Kalani's High School buddies who we hadn't seen in YEARS!!! They all looked so handsome and grown up!
The rehearsal went really well. The coordinator was really amazing and she led the happy couple through each step of what would happen the next day.
There were lots of smiles all around as we prepared for the next day's special event.
After rehearsal Derek and I hosted a rehearsal dinner at Roy's Koolina which is one of our favorite places to celebrate. I got there a little ahead of the bridal party to surprise Kalani and Joyce with favors for the table.
This box was made out of Whisper White card stock. I embossed the top layer with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions folder. I then stamped an image from a brand new set that will be coming out in January called Love You Still. I punched out the words with a circle punch and then layered them onto a champagne foil circle. I made the flower and leaves with 4 different punches and embellished the center with a rhinestone.
When it came to designing this favor I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Since Kalani and Joyce will be honeymooning on a Disney Cruise, I choose cookies from the Aulani Disney resort as the favor content . Honolulu Cookie Company has the best cookies that are usually pineapple shaped. I often bring these amazing cookies with me when I travel to give as gifts to others. I think these exclusive Mickey shaped ones that are sold at Aulani are absolutely adorable.
I punched out the Mr. and Mrs. from the set Cheers To The Year. This is a cute set is only available till the end of the month.
Here is a template that Zeny created that you can use to recreate this Mickey and Minnie box.
It has been a very exciting few days for us as a family. We are excited for Joyce to officially join our family and for her and Kalani to begin their life together as man and wife.
I hope that they both liked this sweet suprise favor that was stamped with aloha with best wishes for a life lived happily ever after.
