Michelle & Greg -- March 15, 2014

On this day we meditated on our version of the famous quote by English novelist E.M. Forester: "We must be willing to let go of the life wedding we have planned, so as to have the life wedding that is waiting for us."  Michelle and Greg envisioned a tropical beach wedding but alas, mother nature did not cooperate.  Thankfully they hired Taryn Stark Wyant of Platinum Weddings & Events to coordinate their wedding, as Taryn is superb at handling last minute hiccups and always has a back up plan.  She quickly organized for Michelle and Greg to be married at the beautiful Ka'anapali Coffee Farms, which occupies a piece of what was once a vast sugar cane plantation.  There is a beautiful building on the property that kept everyone dry while this happy couple said their I dos.  It turned out to be a beautiful ceremony involving their adorable son and we were thrilled to be a part of it.  Here's to handling life's curveballs with grace, Michelle and Greg!

Michelle & Eric -- March 15, 2014

While March brings signs of spring in most places, in northern Montana where Michelle and Eric live, there's still lots of snow this time of year.  They opted to have their wedding in a place where they could warm up and chose The Royal Lahaina on Maui's west side as their location.  We loved Michelle's pink flower arrangement against her bright white dress.  Following the wedding the couple and their guests had a private dinner ceremony overlooking the ocean.  Seems like the perfect wedding to us!  Wishing you a wonderful life together, Michelle and Eric!

Takako & William -- March 14, 2014

Takako and William renewed their marriage vows at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa located in Ka'anapali.  By sunset it started to rain a bit but that did not deter this happy couple from getting their sunset photo shots!  Wishing you many more years of happiness, Takako and William! 001_nakanishi001_nakanishi 002_nakanishi002_nakanishi 004_nakanishi004_nakanishi 003_nakanishi003_nakanishi 005_nakanishi005_nakanishi 006_nakanishi006_nakanishi 007_nakanishi007_nakanishi

Patricia & Greg -- March 10, 2014

This week we had back-to-back vow renewal ceremonies... can you feel the love?!  Patricia and Greg included their son and daughter in their ceremony, which took place on beautiful Ironwoods Beach on Maui's West Side.  Their experienced coordinator Taryn Stark Wyant of Platinum Weddings & Events arranged the details, including the release of live butterflies during the ceremony.  Here's to many more years of happiness together, Patricia and Greg!
