I have a special place in my heart for anything related to Hawaii(my family lives on Maui and Kauai), so I am thrilled to introduce our newest sponsor on Once Wed, Pacific Bride Guide. When it came to planning a destination wedding in Hawaii, Tara noticed there was no single resource (whether it be a magazine or a website) that provided vendor and travel information in one place…And that’s where the idea for Pacific Bride Guide started.





Pacific Bride Guide’s breadth and depth of travel information is what sets them apart from the rest plus they have some major eye candy throughout the site which is always nice. Even if you aren’t planning a wedding in the Pacific, I would still check out their lovely blog and website for great ideas and inspiration.

Thank you for all of your wonderful comments! Dana and Libbyjames, unfortunately, I do not know the designers behind the dresses… so sorry! Allison, please check us out- we’ve got a ton of info about Maui. Lois, I know Hawaii is a world away from the South but I hope you’re loving it here. Chaucee, that’s the Waianae Mountains on Oahu- beautiful!

Hello, Hawaii!
My better half and I lived on the Big Island for a time, and we are hoping to shift our future photography business and super 8 filmmaking skills back when he finishes his schooling….I hope we can work with you in the future, Tara!
