Amanda and John were so excited that their wedding day had finally arrived. They had arrived a few days earlier and had been busy finding all kinds of exciting Maui adventures with their bridal party. Their wedding rehearsal luau got rained out so they donned brightly colored plastic ponchos and drank Mai Tai’s, laughing all night long. (I saw the hilarious pictures of this and they obviously cared least about the conditions and most about having fun! LOVE THAT ATTITUDE!) This was sure to be a Fun Wedding at the Hyatt, Maui.
The day of the wedding, I arrived to the bride’s room with her coordinator Brittany. We were greeted with Amanda’s great laugh as she enjoyed getting ready with the ladies of her bridal party. Her best friend and sister had been overseas for several years and this was the first time everyone was together for professional photos, including the newest addition to the family! Once we had finished all of the “getting ready” images, I headed to the wedding location to meet the groom & his parents!
Their minster was none other than the amazing Pia Aluli who is, not only one of the nicest guys out there, but also one of the best Ministers on Maui. His kind, relaxed demeanor and quick wit make his ceremonies very special and endearing to his clients. It is always so special to get to witness the connection he makes with the couples he works with.
After the ceremony, we did all of the group & family photos, before heading off to the beach for sunset. There is always the ‘funny guy’ at weddings, and one of Amanda friends won that award for the night. It must have been his goal to take the most selfies of the night and I was happy to capture one of his best, trying to squeeze the whole family into one! SO MUCH FUN!
Enjoy the images & again thank you both so much for including Tad Craig Photography in your most important day! Aloha
