Modern Tiki Wedding at the SmogShoppe

Modern Tiki Wedding at the SmogShoppe

When it came time to plan our wedding, there was no doubt about one thing: it was going to be tiki-themed. Once we started crunching numbers, we quickly realized that it was also going to have to be as DIY as possible. Since we're both creative people, we embraced our big day as one giant design challenge. In the end, everything came together in one fun, tropical-filled event that we were happy to share with our closest friends and family members. Now, we can't wait to share it with you - check it out!

Tales of Our Second Visit to the Coconut Club

In early 2015, we were able to experience an amazing evening at the Coconut Club (LA's "underground" tiki supper club that pops up from time to time and is almost always sold out).

Trader Sam's Tahitian Terrace Diamond Luau

Two weeks ago, the Disneyland Hotel & Trader Sam's put on a once-in-a-60th-Anniversary-Celebration event for two nights only: the Tahitian Terrace Diamond Luau.  For those who aren't aware, Disneyland used to have a very cool restaurant in Adventureland adjacent to the Enchanted Tiki Room.  I had only known about it through a coworker of mine who showed me the Tahitian Terrace menu and told tales of its past. Alas, it's long gone.  But Disney decided to bring back some of its glory for the special event...
