GISELLE - THOMAS

DEAR BEAUTIFUL FRIENDS + FAMILY

Our time gathering to celebrate our marriage is fast approaching! We are both so excited to see and be with each of you. Thank you for making the time to co-create a beautiful life memory together, and most of all to gift us with our greatest desire: to have quality time with a select handful of those we love.

A day or two prior to your arrival in Kaua’i, you’ll receive the exact street address of your destination. In the meantime, please know you’ll be heading to the north shore town of Kilauea from the Lihue airport. You’ll either require a rental car, taxi or shuttle from Lihue airport. There will be several cars amongst us already and transport organized for any off-property events, so a rental car is not necessary. But you may enjoy having one anyway. Once you arrive in Kilauea you’ll receive a full itinerary for the weekend.

KAUA'I

The oldest, greenest and northernmost island in the Hawaiian volcanic chain, and possibly Simon’s favorite place on this planet, Kaua’i is draped in emerald valleys, sharp mountain spires and jagged cliffs aged by time and the elements and is cradled within the sparkling waters of the Pacific Ocean. 97% of the island is covered in forests and mountains, and abundant rainfall ensures Kaua’i stays true to her name as The Garden Isle.

Centuries of evolution have formed tropical rainforests, forking rivers and cascading waterfalls as well as the 4,000’ high Na Pali range and the biggest gorge in the Pacific, 10-mile long and 3,000’ deep Waimea Canyon. Some parts of Kauai are only accessible by sea or air, revealing views beyond your imagination and her abundant rainfall promises many many rainbows as well!

WEATHER

Average Kaua’i highs and lows in late September are 85/71°F, 29/21°C. Ocean temperature should be about 83°F, 28°C. Rainshowers could appear at any time! They usually pass quickly and often leave a rainbow behind.

WHAT TO BRING

Please come prepared to savor Earth’s beauty and magnificence, as well as to lounge by the pool, hang out in a hot tub, swim or surf in the waters of the crystal clear Pacific Ocean, bike, walk and (shhh...!) possibly be aboard a beautiful boat. Some items to bring in addition to your fabulous evenings’ wear:
Bathing Suit
Sunscreen
Hat
Non-Slip Shoes
Sunglasses
Optional: Sun Protection Clothing

SUNSCREEN

Hawaii’s fantastic reef protection legislation bans the use of chemical sunscreens. Please pack only non-nano zinc or titanium mineral sunscreen and avoid any chemical sunscreens containing oxybenzone, octinoxate or homosalate. My favorite brand is Suntegrity.
