Modern Pacific

This fresh, sophisticated wedding boutique was formerly in a downtown loft, but owner Regan Schultz has moved it to Waialae. “I’ve always liked this area. It feels like a bit of a getaway,” she says. That vibe is perfect for the wedding-dress brands she features, such as Tamara Catz (a Maui designer) and Nicole Miller. “They’re perfect for Hawaii; lightweight fabrics and casual elegance,” says Schultz. Brides also shop for veils, hair accessories, flower girl dresses and jewelry. All of the designers are Hawaii exclusives.

Schultz planned at press time to divide her space into two sections. The front will be gifts, such as custom stationery, candles, gourmet jams and paper lanterns. The “something-old” section will have vintage jewelry and aprons, and remade clothing.

Reserved parking available in the back of the outdoor lot next to 3660 On the Rise.
