Carrie & Cuong ~ Married at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church

With around forty of their closest family and friends in attendance, this sweet couple married at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church in Kihei, Maui.  Carrie and Cuong loved the idea of a destination wedding and incorporated the hawaiian islands in every fun detail captured perfectly by Scott Drexler.

After their ceremony at St. Theresa’s Church, the couple celebrated with an oceanfront cocktail hour at the Wailea Beach Marriott’s Kaho’olawe Lawn.  After some romantic sunset photos on the nearby beach, the couple joined their guests at the Marriott’s Pacific Terrace.  They enjoyed their first dance on the rooftop venue overlooking the ocean, under the evening stars.

Jessica & Richard were married on the gorgeous Ocean Lawn of the Wailea Marriott Beach Resort & Spa.  They planned their destination wedding all the way from Virginia.  With just over thirty of their family and friends in attendance, they exchanged heartfelt vows with Kale Kaalekahi officiating their ceremony.

Tandi & Mitchell ~ Married at Ironwoods Beach

Tandi and Mitchell were high school sweethearts that decided to be married on our beautiful island of Maui.  They travelled from Washington with their thirty of their closest family and friends.  It was quite an emotional and sweet ceremony, for they were married on Tandi’s late Grandmother’s birthday.

Ironwoods Beach in Kapalua was the perfect beach venue for their wedding ceremony.  With the rocky cliffs, the rolling waves and that gorgeous sunset!  Thank you to Chelsea at Creative Island Visions for helping this lovely couple capture such sweet memories of their wedding day.

An Amazing Event at the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa

It’s not often that A Dream Wedding: Maui Style gets to be guests at an event, so this was an incredibly special night!  The Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa were our gracious hosts and they made the evening magical.  The Resort’s Event Department gathered wedding and event coordinators from across the island to share the up and coming plans for the Resort.

Starting off with pupus and cocktails by the Lily Pond, we chatted with colleagues and were serenaded by the talented Tarvin Makia on the ukulele.  We were then escorted to the Kaho’olawe Lawn where we had a an amazing candlelit dinner under the stars.  The gorgeous table decor by Floral Designs Maui and farm tables from Pacific Isle Rentals / Hawaiian Style Event Rentals added a nice rustic feel.  As the evening was winding down, the Pacific Rooftop Terrace was a lovely place to end the night with an array of desserts and champagne.

Thank you to the wonderful Creative Island Visions Photography & Design for capturing such wonderful photos of the event!

Aki & Oliver ~ Married at Napili Kai Beach Resort

Aki and Oliver traveled all the way from Tokyo, Japan to be married on our beautiful island of Maui.

The ceremony took place at the Napili Kai Resort with around thirty of their closest family and friends in attendance.  George Kahumoku officiated the ceremony that incorporated a traditional hawaiian lei exchange.

Despite a little bit of rain during the ceremony the skies opened at the end of the evening for a gorgeous sunset that Stewart of Hula Girl Photography was on hand to capture perfectly.  The newlyweds and their guests enjoyed the rest of evening at the Lani Pool Deck at the resort for their intimate reception dinner.

Congratulations Aki and Oliver!!

Accessorizing your wedding dress…

One of our recent Bride’s accessorized with this gorgeous necklace draping her back.  It complemented her beaded, backless dress beautifully.

It is amazing how the smallest details will enhance the overall look of your wedding dress.IMG_5861
