The Essence of AlohaDestination Wedding Venue: The Modern Honolulu

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on April 17, 2014

Are you planning a destination wedding in Hawaii? Well we’ve found a true gem in the charming island city of Honolulu.  Walking distance from Wakiki beach, The Modern Honolulu is all it’s been raved out to be and more. Complete with luxe and modern spaces The Modern Honolulu can host a modest dinner party to a lavish ballroom wedding.

Our favourite space in the property would be the Sun Suite and Terrace. This private space can host up to 100 guests and radiates with the feel of luxury. Showcasing breathtaking sunsets and sleek minimalism design this event space offers the perfect backdrop and ambience for your destination wedding.

What else makes this luxury hotel Honolulu’s gem?

The Penthouse: The ultimate posh destination for parties and intimate functions, The Modern Honolulu’s 1,400-square-foot luxury Penthouse also features a beautifully landscaped and furnished 1,500-square-foot terrace provides an indoor/outdoor entertaining space with panoramic ocean views.

Dining: Between their signature restaurant Morimoto (available for parties upon request) and Executive Chef Scott Toner you and your guests will be blown away by some of Hawaii’s best meals using the flavors of island-grown ingredients.

The Spa: Spa packages completely customized for weddings is what each bride and groom need to take advantage of at this hotel. A full spa menu is available to help you shine and feel your best on your wedding day.

The Nightclub: ADDICTION located inside the chic hotel is an upscale nightclub perfect for a stag/stagette celebration channeling South Beach, L.A. or Vegas in a way only Waikiki can.

How will you feel here? The service is personal and authentic, what they like to call the essence of Aloha, anything you can imagine to enhance your stay and experience. Blush approves The Modern Honolulu as your destination wedding venue and/or honeymoon.

Save The Date: Lauren & Erik 12.31.14Artsy Save the Date Video

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on March 26, 2014

Happy Wednesday! We have something over the top creative and cute to share with you today. Lauren Ritchie shared her Save the Date video with Blush, instantly we knew it was something worth sharing. Lauren & Erik (uber cute couple btw) scanned the web and came across proposal and save the date videos, which inspired them to do one of their own. They are tying the knot on NYE at the Art Gallery of Alberta and want to throw a super fun celebration. A paint fight suited the artsy fun theme these two were aiming for. The couple then reached out to friend Christopher Dowsett and the team was ready to shoot their one-take video.

Lauren & Erik “Dexter-ed” their walls, ceilings and floor to ensure no damage was made to the hardwood or walls. They used paint, confetti, streamers and of course glitter ! Christopher did a wonderful job editing the video in reverse and “Let’s Start the New Year Right” was the perfect soundtrack. Yes, Lauren had to toss out that pretty dress afterwards.

Can you image the wedding these two are going to throw!  We raise our glasses to you Lauren & Erik!
