Gene Simmons and gorgeous wife Shannon Tweed married in October 2011 after 28 years of dating. Last year in late 2013, they celebrated a lovely and intimate wedding vow renewal at the Haiku Mill venue in Maui, Hawaii! We can’t say anything more than it was just jaw dropping beautiful from start to finish!
From a beautifully decorated vintage style vignettes for the ceremony seating and a gorgeous reception table display with our curly willow chair sleeves as a special touch to a huge white dance floor with 4 100lb floral chandeliers, this wedding had it all!
Take a look at these amazing images photographed by Trish Barker Photography as well as some excerpts from the ladies of Lady Liberty Events who designed and styled the event with One Heart Weddings + White Orchid Weddings. Their beautiful event is also featured on Style Me Pretty.
Excerpts below from Liberty of Lady Liberty Events…
We decided on a black, blush and gold palate to bring together the glamorous and modern vibe with the perfect hint of edginess. The design for this occasion was simply stunning and was the ideal representation of their softer romantic side mixed with their rock & roll personalities!
Upon arrival guests made their way through a 25ft white hanging flower wall entrance, where they were seated at stunning styled vignettes. A combination of vintage settees, ottomans, and armchairs accented with modern black and blush throw pillows, creating an opulent setting for the ceremony seating. Billows of flowing linen covered the walls and ceilings while blush and ivory ribbons posed as the perfect backdrop for the bride and groom to say I do… again. Flanked with lush hydrangea centerpieces and a custom aisle showcasing their monogram, the walk down the aisle was nothing shy of stunning. Gene & Shannon’s daughter, Sophie, put together a warm and heartfelt ceremony and with the addition of their personal vows, there was not a dry eye in the house.
Guests were then invited to make their way into the reception and dinner area, lead by the sound of cool jazz played by the live 9 piece band. The table was set with sparkling blush linens, gold chargers & flatware, and black modern glassware. Each setting was accented with black laser cut plexi glass place cards, which looked amazing against the blush and gold tones. Overhead, swags of blush drapery and gorgeous chandeliers with black accents provided a stunning atmosphere. Gold candelabras & gold mercury votives were mixed in with the lush arrangements which consisted of fragrant garden roses and hydrangeas set in striking black vessels. The chairs were covered with flirty curly willow blush chair sleeves from Wildflower Linen which effortlessly complimented the table scape. The vibrant living greenery surrounding the area and the light sound of waterfalls perfected the look of the dining area [making it the perfect location for a Hawaiian Wedding].
The huge white dance floor glowing with Gene & Shannon’s monogram was surrounded by 4, 100lb floral chandeliers that were simply mouth dropping. Petite vignettes surrounded the floor and were accented with custom monogramed dupioni silk pillows with gold embroidery. Once everyone made their way to the dance floor, the evening’s festivities had just begun! Shannon had requested Karaoke for the reception, so we figured what better way than to have a live band play as their background music! Gene hopped on the bass while, Sophie & Nick (their kids) sang the night away. They definitely all rocked the house, and had a blast the entire evening!
