Hawaiian Idyll



With less then seven weeks to go until the Big Day, I'm madly hunting images to inspire my vintage Hawaiian/island theme. This search lead me to artist John Melville Kelly who, though born in California, visited Hawaii for a week in the early 1920's and then stayed for the rest of his life. His depictions of the Hawaiian Islands and their people are truly beautiful. These watercolours of his provide inspiration indeed.

These are just gorgeous! I have been to Hawaii FIVE times now and honestly can say it is absolutely Paradise on earth. My favourite beach is Kailua...white sands, calm waters. Just fantastic.
