#315: aloha in l.a.?

you can take the girl out of hawaii...but not the hawaii out of the girl.

nah, i'm not from hawaii but it's certainly one of my most favorite places EVER. i absolutely love it body and soul feel at peace whenever i visit. if i could, i'd grab the future hubs RIGHT NOW and do the quick step over to the island wedding of our dreams.

but since i can't, perhaps a menu like this:
Shrimp Skewers and Prime Top Sirloin
Jumbo shrimp skewers grilled in garlic butter offered with prime sirloin steak broiled with a roasted red bell pepper relish.
Served with jasmine rice & vegetable.
Lunch: $28 pp

Big Island Mango BBQ Pork Ribs and Huli Huli Chicken
Individually cut baby back pork ribs glazed with our homemade mango BBQ sauce paired with a grilled chicken breast marinated in a sweet ginger teriyaki sauce.
Served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes & vegetable.
Lunch: $26 pp

and views like this:

dukes malibu

...could hold me over until i go back.

Would you have your whole wedding there? What if during your ceremony people sat at tables with glasses of wine rather than in rows? That way you wouldn't need to pay to have the room flipped, or for a separate cocktail hour space in between. I've only seen this done once, but it's pretty cool!

yum. with food & scenery like that, you wouldn't really need to do too much in the way of decorating.

dukes is on my list of hopeful locations (reception-wise) for this not yet engaged girl

i used to live in LA and i think dukes would be a great reception spot. i never would have thought of it! right on the beach!
