Wedding Day Adventures on Maui

Wedding Day Adventures on Maui

What an extraordinary wedding day Hannah and Jonathan had with many adventures! They were married on the south side in the morning and then they were able to experience everything Maui had to offer!  They had perfect blue Makena skies, they swam in crystal emerald waters, drank champagne in an elegant limo, enjoyed the stylish amenities at The Ritz-Carlton,  explored the lush tropical rainforest and had picturesque amazing double rainbows and an unforgettable sunset that left them speechless! Their wedding day adventures started early with a wedding package that included a photographer so I didn’t get to witness their actual nuptials, but as soon as it was over we started our all day photo session!

We started at Makena Cove and we found the beach practically deserted, it was bathed in warm tropical light and they enjoyed their new status as husband and wife and laughed and kissed and frolicked in the morning beauty! They changed from their wedding clothes to beach attire and they continued their beach love as they rolled in the sand and kissed as passionately as a newly married couple can!

After a midday siesta, I met them at the marvelous Ritz Carlton Hotel on Maui’s far west side! I loved the tulip shaped flowers on the giant tree in the entrance of the hotel!  We explored different locations as we continued documenting the day.  Not far from this sensational hotel is this hidden rainforest that lends itself to the most amazing pictures! Once, a long time ago, one of my images taken in this astounding forest went viral with over 25,000 likes! We entered into this fantastic forest and it was overwhelming and by the look on their faces, I could tell they too were blown away! Oh my goodness there are so many incredible spots to choose from and it was not difficult coming up with many superb images! We continued on the journey and we made our way to another dynamite location with tall pine trees that were first brought to the Hawaiian Islands to use as masts for sailing ships and now used as a fabulous backdrop to Hannah & Jonathon’s Love!  Again they were amazed!

We then moved on to Kapalua Beach which was astonishingly deserted and they ran hand in hand down the beach, they walked in the water and took selfies. We then moved to the rocks where we again were impressed by the delightfully colorful double rainbow that formed! I mean seriously does it get any better?  Well actually it does because within minutes the rainbow disappeared and the sunset over the island of Molokai erupted in gorgeous saturated yellows & reds!

Hannah & Jonathon were truly blessed with a gorgeous wedding day anyone could ask for!

Congratulations to these two lovers! 🌴💦🌈😀😎💍👍🏼

Angela & Dean score an amazing wedding night!

Angela & Dean score an amazing wedding night!

In Hawaii we are just lucky to work at such fabulous venues! On this day I arrived early to find the sun shinning & pretty much picture perfect conditions at Merriman’s Restaurant! I met Dean as he sat back in the lounge chairs with his buds sipping a drink, laughing and having a good time! Their reception table was set & looked super with incredible flowers through out! The weeping flowers on the bouquet was absolutely unique and so different then others I have seen! Soon we made our way to the wedding site & waited for Angela! When Angela walked down the isle with her daughter, she looked so gorgeous & radiated happiness! Doesn’t get any better! With just close family & friends in attendance it was an intimate affair!  Was a short but poignant ceremony & then they kissed at it was official. Angela & Dean were JUST MAUI’ED!

After all the family & group photos Angela disappeared to change from one incredible dress to another. The second a short cocktail wedding dress looked just as amazing on her as they walked down to the water for sunset where they were blown away by the incredible  sunset and beautiful light making gorgeous imagery! Just loved that warm light that lit them up so nicely! Really enjoyed working with this amazing couple & loved their joy that was just so easy to capture in images! Thanks for having TCP apart of your Maui Memories!
