The Wedding of Hamish & Melissa | A Sugarman Estate Event

Melissa & Hamish grew up on opposite sides of the world; Hamish from Australia and Missy from New Jersey.  This distance didn’t stop them from finding each other.  So when marriage was the next step, Maui became the perfect halfway point for their international destination wedding.  The couple decided they would exchange vows at the oceanfront Sugarman Estate in Makena because, “it has a better lawn,” explains Hamish.  “He’s a fan of lawns,” Missy says with a smile.  So it was settled, and on that beautiful day, the 16th of August, they became husband and wife.  The ceremony was full of expression; loved ones gave speeches, sang songs and the newly wed couple completed their union with a sand ceremony.  It was an amazing day to witness; the whole event was a reflection of the couple’s colorful elegance, even the island seemed to celebrate turning out one of the most brilliant sunsets we’ve ever seen.

“Lucky I’m in Love With My Best Friend” | The Wedding of Chi & Alex

You couldn’t meet a sweeter couple than this bride and groom – their love for one another is absolutely radiant. And so it was fitting that they would be married on such a warm and beautiful afternoon at Maui’s Makena Beach Resort. The spectacular scene was coordinated by The Perfect Wedding: Chi and Alex exchanged rings and I do’s between their guests and the the waters of the Alalakeiki Channel, incredible flower arrangements (created by Dellables) adorned the aisle and alter, and an acoustic ukulele player strummed serene songs.  We felt so honored to be part of this special day. In addition to the wedding photography, we have included photographs from a pre-wedding engagement session and bride+groom sunset session. Enjoy and please feel free to leave your comments below ~ Mahalo.

A Hawaii Engagement | Alexandra & Stefan

Alexandra (Xandra) was visiting Maui for her twin sister’s wedding when she was surprised with a proposal of her own. Stef, her sweetheart, had planned a romantic day-trip to Maui’s remote jungle town of Hana. It was here that he popped the question, and she said ‘yes’! We met up with this awesome couple a few days later to create a collection of photographs celebrating this special time in their lives. With so many images to choose from, here are a few of our favorites.

Maui Wedding Photography | Daniella + Chris

Where do you find the love of your life? For Daniella and Chris it was when they happened to step onto the same elevator. Now fast-forward to a beautiful afternoon on the south shore of Maui – their wedding day. An intimate group of family and friends were present as they exchanged vows. Surrounded by palm trees swaying in the trade winds and the sun glistening on warm Hawaiian waters, Dani and Chris confirmed what began back in that Canadian elevator all those years ago. On May 16th they became husband and wife, and we were there with our cameras to capture this beautiful day in photographs.

Lahaina Love – The Wedding of Mike & Kim

The historic Lahaina Town is special place for Mike and Kim. Not only is it the location of their wedding day, but it is also the very place that they met over 12 years ago.  At that time, Kim was living on Maui and waitressing in the small beach town.  Mike was vacationing with his family, and happened to be seated in Kim’s section of the restaurant one night.  The rest is history.  They had their first date here, and to make this place even more special, Mike later proposed on the beach down the street.

On May 11th, they came back with family and friends to continue their relationship with Lahaina.  This time it was to exchange vows on the same shoreline that had been so significant to their lives.  There were some tears, lots of laughter, extraordinary floral arrangements and an outrageous sunset.  We were there with our cameras to photograph this momentous occasion and want to express our gratitude and congratulations to this incredible couple.
