Ashley & Andrew Elope to Maui

Ashley & Andrew Elope to Maui

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! 🙂
