My friendship with Julie and Theo had started long before their wedding as they had started following me on social media, liking and commenting on certain images. I too had followed their IG account and noticed the excitement and anticipation building as the wedding got closer and closer. These two met riding horses in California, and their passion for horses made them move to Kentucky where they now have their own horse breeding ranch. This love of horses, led the two to becoming best friends and now they are marrying each other on the beautiful beach in Hawai’i.
FINALLY, the day arrived and they were ever so excited! Julie was truly floating on cloud nine as she was getting ready for her girls and popping the bubbly! Their room at The Grand Wailea, was magnificent with such an amazing view of the beach with palm trees and the Pacific Ocean blue as far as you could see. After we had finished all the getting ready pictures we headed down to beautiful Wailea Beach. Kimo Kirkman was the minister extraordinaire who not only had them laughing just about every second, but also brought tears to their faces as they said their vows! Very touching! Kalani Miles serenaded them afterwards with his amazing guitar picking!
Once they were finished with all the beach and family pictures, we made our way to White Rock Beach where we found the gorgeous bougainvillea plants adding an intensely colorful background as they enjoyed tender kisses as husband and wife! On the beach, Theo spun his wife and the reaction on her face was priceless! They scored one amazing sunset and once finshed there we continued the journey to Gannon’s restaurant, where the super fab DJ Dan introduced the loving couple to an eager crowd who clapped, hooted and hollered as they walked in! What an amazing night they had and THANKS to them for including Tad Craig Photography in their Maui Wedding Dreams!
