The saying goes, "Everything is bigger in Texas," which may be part of the reason Houstonites Krystle and Steven chose Maui for a small wedding. One benefit of a destination wedding is a shorter guest list makes for a more intimate celebration and allows the bride and groom to spend quality time with their loved ones. The splashes of pink and personalized touches that Krystle and Steven incorporated into their wedding made the day a true reflection of their personalities. The ceremony was held at the Sheraton Maui, located on legendary Ka'anapali Beach.
Katie and Xavier were married at Gannon's Restaurant in Wailea, a well loved restaurant on Maui's south side where the view is as spectacular as the food. When planning a destination wedding, we highly recommend working with an experienced wedding planner. Someone with local knowledge and contacts will help make decisions about vendors, locations, and timing much easier and it allows the bride and groom to focus on each other, rather than the details of the wedding, on their big day. This wedding, which included 40 guests, was planned by Tracy Flanagan at A Dream Wedding, who has planned over 5,000 weddings with couples from around the world since 1990. We love working with Tracy!
Chelsea and Andrew's wedding was simple and perfect. Both their parents were present and they were married just before sunset at The Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, which gave us a chance to capture some romantic photos right after the ceremony. One of the many benefits of destination weddings is the honeymoon starts right away! Chelsea and Andrew arrived just a few days before their wedding to finalize the details and were able to spend the rest of their time off relaxing and enjoying all that Maui has to offer.
April and Scott and twenty of their closest friends and family escaped the Texas summer heat for a perfect tropical wedding on Maui. Their wedding was held at The Royal Lahaina located on Kaanapali Beach. We love going for a walk on the beach with our couples after the ceremony... it gives the couple some time without guests to decompress and gives us a chance to capture romantic sunset photos, which are often the couple's most treasured photos.
Family and friends are obviously very important to Lea and Omar. They had sixty guests present to witness their nuptials, all of whom traveled far and wide to be part of Lea and Omar's big day. We loved the bride's bouquet of local plumeria and orchid which incorporated a photo of her grandparents. We had a ball shooting this family's sweet wedding at The Royal Lahaina!
