Corps d’elite Designers – NYC Fashion Week

My understanding of creating a new trend is basically re-imagining what already exist – At times there is no need to start from the scratch.

All there is, formulating a new image, re-arranging some parts and envisioning an alternative. The purpose,  to create a new beauty.

 Although there are a lot more, but these reminded me of my basic rule: Re-creating what already exists. Enjoy!

“Only from the heart can you touch the sky.” and so she did!

A beautiful day in the City

“In compassion and grace: be like the sun.”

This is about Karina and Andy’s unconditional love, acceptance, tolerance, patience and compassion.

” In generosity and helping others: be like the river.”

“And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth,“ You owe me.”

“In tolerance: be like the ocean.”

Dedicating all poems from Rumi to my lovely bride and groom

Two Hearts Full of Soul! Mary and Alex …

1 2  4 5 6 7

As they say, people come into your life for a reason. Every time I meet a new couple I try to see what the message is they are bringing and what I can learn from them. Meeting Mary and Alex was very interesting at first! I was not sure what the message was, but after a while I realized the gift. I’ve learned from this beautiful couple the Art of Listening, Respect, Willingness and Punctuality.

Mary’s humble personality and Alex’s gentleness made this journey delightful and easy! Their respect of my opinions and listening to my guidance, coupled with their patience and willingness brought me such a joy and a beautiufl night. Granted, they say some people come into your life for a reason … I say …  and some stay for a lifetime … Mary and Alex are in mine for a lifetime.

Here are some pointers that I gave them and love to share with all of you lovelies out there:

 Find your right balance!

 Absorb!  The knowledge, the experiences and the talents!

 Too often we listen to too many things. Don’t load your brain with too much confusion!

 Sometimes you need to express yourself in creative ways other than explaining!

 Show your natural human emotions and feelings!

 Find a different way to relate yourselves to one-another!

 Be confident and create opportunities!  Remember it has to come from the inner you, your center, and what you believe!

 Your confidence and your courage determine your life’s capacity!

See it in your mind’s-eye and find your way forward.

Stephanie, Simply Timeless!

A stunning beauty who amazed me with her simplicity. My darling Stephanie!

To me being simple is not being simple-minded. If one can manage to discover the beauty of being simple, chic, yet elegant and timeless, it indicates a true wisdom.

What I’ve learned from this beautiful bride was that being yourself and keeping it real gives you power, it brings out your inner true self which will set the stage for the rest of your new life!

Remember, I don’t consider your wedding a destination or a goal, it is a journey that will reflect and continue throughout the rest of your life!

Here are my notes on Stephanie’s wedding:

“Let the beauty we love be what we do…”

  • There is a tremendous power in being humble
  • Keep it real and be yourself
  • Keep it simple
  • Be like running water for generosity
  • Appear as you are and be as you appear

With love,

Ia Iho Ke Aloha ~ Nau wale no! To my love ~ Just for you!

Karen,  Hector and their dog Lexi

A bride with a style that will stand the test of time.

She swept us off our feet with her cultural beauty
and traditional elegance!

She defined all the odds and put her love in motion!

&

 Luckily all that beauty was captured.

Enjoy!

Ho`ola`i na manu i ke aheahe. `A`ohe loa i ka hana a ke aloha. Ua ola loko i ke aloha.

The birds poise quietly in the gentle breezes. Distance is ignored by love. Love gives life within

Love knows no distance, no traditions, no differences and has no limits! “Love is the astrolabe of God’s secrets”

A quite cozy wedding with family and closest friends is always much better

The more humble you are the better things will be

Always cherish your values

Respect family and good friendship, be thoughtful and kind

Spend as much quality time together as possible

Every moment is made glorious … cherish them

“No matter what happens, just keep smiling and lose yourself in Love”

Keep true to yourself

If things are not perfect … It doesn’t matter …

Always remember and believe … the day you two met … the spark … the love and the holding hands

And most importantly have mutual respect

Aloha Nui Loa

All my love

 “Just a small note” is  my  footnotes from my weekend weddings about “your” personal touch! Hope it helps darling.

❤ Don’t let other things take this away from you: It is about the two of you after all and writing a note to one another is a very nice surprise and a beautiful touch!

❤Last Saturday my lovely bride chose her bridesmaids dresses to be all glittery and sequinsy! (blog about her wedding is coming). It was an absolutely lovely touch, out of the norm, classy and beautiful.

❤Choose a dress that speaks your style! Something couture, timeless and classy. Right details are the key! You dress should be a symbol of your personality and representative of an elegant sexy you!

❤And lastly it’s Ok to use a fashion jewelry for your wedding. Try to be unique and pick a meaningful piece.

Putting the stress aside and looking into some delicious details is always good. Hope these pointers help.

With love
