Philosophy

Vintage [vin-tij] n.

1. an exceptionally fine, timeless element expressing eternal or everlasting quality.

Lace [leys] n.

1. an ornamental, delicate adornment used to interlace or draw things together into a close, intimate union.

A wedding should have a timeless yet modern quality that remains beautiful for generations to come - vintage. It should also reflect the delicate bond that is created between two people when they choose to wed - lace.

As one of life's most anticipated milestones, you should feel beautiful, hopeful, and centered on your wedding day. Our goal - the reason we plan, que, fluff, and prep - is to create one-of-a-kind moments and lasting memories a couple will build their marriage upon. So, when life brings its natural challenges, our clients can reflect back on their wedding day - the start of their marriage - and remember what a magical day it was.

Style

Vintage & Lace has been recognized as innovators and creative trendsetters best known for our stunning and unexpected decor and exquisite attention to every last detail. Every Vintage & Lace event is stylish, flawlessly executed, personal, and unforgettable.

Our wedding style takes the best inspirations of the past and adds a modern twist to create a timeless vision that has depth and personality. We enmesh romantic, refined elements with daring, eclectic pieces to create a unique style and a fresh wedding design that will stand out and never feel cliché or generic. We pride ourselves on being artisans who treat your event as a living, beautiful, and fleeting piece of art –just like life. 

Much of our style inspiration comes from our extensive travels and our love of art, architecture, and interior design. Whether it was visiting cafes in Paris, RV-ing across New Zealand, backpacking in Australia, furniture shopping in Bali, or browsing textile markets in Africa, we have always absorbed all the beauty and culture around us and been immensely inspired by the people, prints, patterns, and living art we experience on the road. 

My lifetime love of art and design, passion for travel, and desire to create beauty and promote happiness in this world, has led me here. Through the now hundreds of weddings I have designed, planned and coordinated on these beautiful islands, I have gained so much experience and heard so many wonderful, stories of love. Ultimately, I do what I do because I find infinite intrinsic value in using my talents to create memories of celebration for families to always look back on and cherish.

In addition to my artistic and event coordination passions, I earned my Masters Degree with a special interest in Social Entrepreneurship from the University of Oregon. Now, and for the last 12 years, I have combined my talents to build my own social business that empowers couples embarking on the journey of marriage. With a young family of my own, my role is now primarily managing my business and empowering my team of Coordinators to pursue their passion and help couples have the wedding of their dreams.

Meet Maria

Big Island Event Coordinator and Hawaii Wedding Planner

I grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina in a home full of passion for discovery. I moved to New York City for my studies and started working in the event industry. I worked with top clients such as the Tribeca Film Festival, Rolex, Lincoln Center, The New York Public Library, among others. After nearly ten years and with a baby on the way, I decided to make the move to Hawai’i and I never looked back. 

 

I believe that life is about creating memories. After planning my own wedding on this beautiful Island I felt the calling to share my skills in the event industry. I feel my passion for creating remarkable moments in life can be utilized to make someone’s most special day exceptional.

 

I have a mastery for multitasking and coordinating and I help events feel effortless and on point. I look forward to meeting each client and making an event unique to them and their story. 

 

Planning and Coordinating for Vintage & Lace is where I get to do what I love in an environment of joy and beauty to make your day not just breathtaking and unique but also the happiest.

Congratulations on this special moment in life and look forward to helping you on your journey.
