A Marriage on the shores of Maui

A Marriage on the shores of Maui

Nancy & Scott have an illuminating story of how they met and it is in the name of photography. Nancy & Scott met while they were both working in the photography industry in Pennsylvania. She was an amateur photographer and Scott worked at the photography supply store, where Nancy went to purchase low light film and they have been together ever since.
They both wanted to get married on Maui since they had visited before and knew right away that this would be the perfect place to wed. Nancy beamed with love as she walked down the isle to meet Scott, the love of her life which she has spent many magnificent days and nights with but today on Maui, they were ready to make it official. They both embraced the moment when Minister Laki granted them the gift of togetherness. It was a wondrous affair on the beautiful beach with the waves lapping upon the sand, the wind rustling the palm trees and the clouds caressing the Maui sky. They celebrated their special day with their friends who where celebrating their 20 years together! It was a day filled with love! Congratulations to this match made in heaven.











Mahalo to all the wonderful vendors who made this gorgeous wedding happen. Jackie and Lori of Tropical Maui Weddings for coordinating this event. Pastor Laki, for his sermon, Pam Jenson for makeup and hair.

 Ashley & Andrew are keeping it simple!

I arrived at Ulua beach on Maui’s South shore to find a drop or two of rain falling, but not enough to be worried about it pouring down on us. Andrew, was relaxed and patiently waiting for the day’s events to unfold. He told me that they really wanted this day to be about them and wanted a simple ceremony with no stress of a big wedding.  That is why they had decided that Maui was the perfect place for the two of them to say their “I Do’s! Later at home they will have a big reception so their family & friends can also be apart of the celebration!

As we waited, his beautiful bride was being dropped off by a limo from The Fairmont Kea Lani, where they were staying. Stepping out on the red carpet of the limo, her smile gave away her excitement as she was absolutely beaming from ear to ear!  They were in good hands with Kimo Kirkman as their minister, as he is wonderful at keeping it serious with just enough comic relief to make it fun! With poignant words, a look into each others eyes and a kiss on the lips, they were finally married! They were blessed with a gorgeous sunset and were very excited at how beautiful the day had turned out!

Once we had finished with the sunset shots, we moved to the second part of the evening as their first dinner as husband and wife was scheduled in a private room at the Fairmont Kea Lani. The private room was breathtaking with a GIANT window looking out on to the swaying palms and manicured grounds of the hotel. IT is an absolutely gorgeous spot! Congratulations to these lovers tying the knot and thank you so much for making Tad Craig Photography apart of your Maui Memories! 🙂
