Plantation House Kapalua Wedding

Oh my goodness this wedding was something else. Absolutely a fairytale wedding for Temako & Earl. Their backstory is incredible with Earl sweeping her off her feet for years & when both of their dads were sick he would drive 1.5 hours to go see one parent & then turn around to go see the other parent almost daily. When he finally asked her, she immediately knew the location as they had an amazing lunch there years before & the wedding was set.

Finally the day of the wedding comes & it is a beautiful day, except there are constant rain squalls that keep moving through. The groom is standing at the altar in perfectly sunny weather & then his bride walks in & right when she meets him at the altar, the first squall hits with a sudden downburst, but it was no matter to this sweet couple. About one minute later the squall moved past & the sun lit everything up & the wedding continued. Four more one minute squalls came & went along with their rainbows & finally they kissed & made it official. I love that the weather was not going to dampen the mood & the proceedings!  Later we got the huge wedding party to hook arms walking on the greens of this perfectly manicured course as they laughed & had so much fun.

100% total surprise proposal went flawlessly! Congrats to Joe popping the question and Reebie saying "YES!" Oh my goodness her expression was everything the moment he asked and they were both giddy with excitement and me as a photographer I LOVE photographing these precious moments!  I chose this song by @lilymeola as the song fits perfectly with these moments & particularly because she's a local girl who lived across the street from me in Kuau Maui when I lived in Kuau.  After experiencing some cool spots we made it to Kapalua beach for sunset and afterwards they walked hand in hand for a romantic dinner at @merrimansmaui !  Congrats to Reebie & Joe and their new adventure they have decided to go on! Enjoy the imagery ❤️💍🥂👍🏼  #mauiproposal #mauiweddingphotographer #mauiphotoshoot #mauifamilyphotographer #mauiengagementphotographer #mauiphotographer #mauielopementphotographer #hawaiiweddingphotographer #mauiwedding #mauiengagement #mauicouplesphotographer #mauiproposalphotography #proposal #hawaiiphotographer #engagedinhawaii #mauiproposalphotographer #mauidestinationwedding #perfectproposal #hawaiiproposal #destinationphotographer #shesaidyes #engagement #surpriseproposal

Something magical about eloping just the two of you. No pressure, no worrying about all the baggage that comes with a big wedding. Just the two of you connecting on a higher level, enjoying every moment in a tree house overlooking the ocean. Congrats to Rebecca & Michael who eloped from New Orleans to marry in this treehouse & later get treated to a gorgeous Maui Sunset. Life is Good!
Congrats to these two lovers!💍❤️🌴  #mauiwedding #mauiweddingphotographer #maui #hawaiiwedding #mauiweddings #mauiphotographer #destinationwedding #mauiweddingvenue #mauiweddingphotography #mauihawaii #hawaiiweddingphotographer #waileaphotographer #wedding
