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! 🌴💦🌈😀😎💍👍🏼

Two Families become ONE at Fleming Beach

Two Families become ONE at Fleming Beach in Kapalua!
Originally this event was supposed to be a big and fun family vacation, but at the last minute Kristi and David decided to turn their family vacation to Hawaii into their Wedding family vacations!
With all of their most important people already with them, it seemed like the natural thing to do.
All of the ladies, mostly sisters, were all dressed in gorgeous matching teal dresses and glamorous necklaces with their backs all exposed. Can you say: ” Simply Gorgeous!!!”
With one couple that had just engaged and other families just beginning with kids on the way, there were many, many candid moments.
Of course, the location at The Ritz Carlton Hotel in Kapalua, on the West side of Maui, was pretty spectacular as well.
I loved that about everywhere you looked, you could see gorgeous tropical flowers of some sort. Especially, loved the purple of the bougainvillea’s in the background of the group shot.
With just about every combination of photos completed, we headed down to Fleming beach in Kapalua for the nuptials. It was a quick charming ceremony with their kids around them. Kristi and Dave celebrated with a kisses & hugs from their beautiful family! With the 12 kids, Kristi is now the mother/stepmother of a very large amazing family!
Congratulations to all and I wish you …Happily ever after!
Warmest Mahalos for choosing me for your special day!
Tad
