From earlier conversations with the coordinator, Leah at Island Wedding Memories, I knew this wedding was going to be really special. Ileana & Dax had gone to great lengths to find just the perfect location and it sure was! Their wedding was at the awe inspiring, Sugarman Estate in Makena, Maui. Their setup was pretty incredible with gorgeous flowers adorning all the tables and the arch. The property was perfectly manicured and so peaceful!

Ileana, originally from Cuba, but now a long time resident of Las Vegas had been dating Dax for Ten years. Three years before, when their sweet daughter was born, she had found the most incredible dress. She had kept that dress hidden all that time, until finally it was her wedding day! Everything had to be perfect, she had been VERY patient! With about 60 friends & family in attendance, they said their “I Do’s” & celebrated with cheers from the crowd.

This particular evening, was really nice with big puffy clouds blocking the sun making for very comfortable conditions & soft light for photos.  All of the guests enjoyed the music of Jaime Lawrence and cocktails after the ceremony. The one who stole the show of course was their cute little three year old girl. Constantly looking cute and doing “cute things” made for easy pictures. As expected, the sun dropped behind the horizon and slid below the clouds, turning the sky golden yellow!
