Their Maui Wedding was everything they imagined & more!
Set up on a blind date by friends is how Annie and Richard met!
Instantly hitting it off lead to another date and another date & a year later lead to Richard proposing on Thanksgiving night in front of 50 cheering friends and family! Now they have traveled all the way to Maui to say their nuptials in front of about 80 friends & family!
Annie looked exceptionally beautiful in her flowing dress & flower haku adorned on her head.
As we talked & walked across the hotel I could sense the anticipation Annie was feeling. With Richard standing on the floating bridge, the moment of the “First Look” was here. She playfully bounced the bridge & when he turned you could see their love and excitement! Beautiful!
The ceremony site had gorgeous flowers all around with a truly magical arch by Asa Flowers & of course the background was stunning.
Holding hands, looking into each other eyes they whispered their vows! Was just about perfect!
With sunset fast approaching, we made our way to the ocean & were treated to another spectacular sunset. They both were loving the moment wearing smiles as wide as their heads! LOVE THAT!
The reception was just a stones throw from the sunset & again were treated to mother nature putting on a show. My assistant and second photographer, Marie-Claude Adams, shot that pic with all the purples & pinks in the sky! Gorgeous!
Congratulations to Annie & Richard & their saying vows to each other!
