Carli and Erik’s beautiful Maui wedding took place at the ocean front Kahoolawe Lawn at the Wailea Beach Marriott Resort & Spa. We met the happy couple about 1-year before their big day when they first started scouting locations. We were so happy when they decided on the Wailea Marriott as it is truly one of the most breathtaking wedding locations on Maui!
The couple was surrounded by 40 of their family and friends as well as Erik’s 8 year old daughter, Natalie. The couple wanted to do something special to incorporate Natalie into their wedding ceremony so they had Minister Bob McCollor ask her to come forward as they said a few words and presented her with the beautiful pearl necklace seen in the images below. They also included her into their special butterfly release after the ceremony, it was a very sweet touch!
After all of the butterflies were released, one butterfly stayed on Carli’s bouquet for the rest of the night! For all of the pictures, through sunset and even through their reception. Carli’s mom had passed away and she felt so strongly that it was her mom’s spirit with her on her most special day.
It was such a beautiful night and we feel so lucky to have been chosen by Carli and Eric to coordinate their dream wedding! We know they will enjoy a lifetime of love and happiness together, congratulations from A Dream Wedding Maui Style!
