Maile and Walter got married on the beautiful island of Kauai last December and wanted to celebrate their marriage with friends and family at Walt’s new restaurant here in Phoenix, Ocotillo. They turned the Beer Garden patio into one long magazine-worthy table for 75, covered in gorgeous flower arrangements, candles and lace. Every table setting had a hand-lettered menu with each guest’s name beautifully written on it, and sweet bag of Hawaiian gifts for them to take home in a stamped muslin bag. Hanging over the tables were flower-chandeliers – yes, that’s what I said. Chandeliers made with flowers. It was a stunning night and so fun to weave in and out of Maile & Walt’s guests, hearing stories of how they first met the bride and groom, how far they traveled to celebrate, and how happy and proud they are of their friends. I’m so glad we got to be a part of this celebration and experience this really neat new space in Phoenix. I may or may not have already gone back to Ocotillo with my girlfriends for Nutella iced lattes and ginger mint lemonade. And I can guarantee Maile & Walt will see me there again often! Congratulations, you two!
