Nicole and Chris are both fans of the dark and dramatic so they planned their wedding in shades of black, white and gold; the anti-wedding with character and authenticity. They requested a black dress code which added to the dramatic, stylish flair of their flawless day.
The romantic, ethereal Haiku Mill was the perfect venue for this stunning couple’s vision; with hanging crystals interspersed with dark, red roses hanging from black ribbon, flowing, sheer black draping at the entrance of their ceremony and black Chiavari chair seating for their guests. As soon as we saw their breathtaking ceremony setup we knew we were in for something amazing.
We photographed Nicole’s gorgeous Grace Loves Lace wedding gown from a stunning, hanging Rococo Crystal Chandelier, courtesy of Signature Event Rentals, before we met the beautiful bride inside the Haiku Mill Cane House for pre-ceremony bridal portraits. As the dashing groom, Chris, pulled up to the Haiku Mill in a silver Porsche Speedster, we captured a few solo portraits before we facilitated a sweet first look between the couple in the courtyard of the Haiku Mill before their guests arrived. A ceremony full of love and laughter followed by romantic portraits with this charming couple around the grounds of the Haiku Mill topped off their endearing day and we were so honored to be a part of it all.
When we asked the couple what attracted them to Dmitri and Sandra Photography, they answered as follows:
“We enjoy the cinematic quality of your photography, we found it to be dramatic, creative and honest.”
It’s such a huge compliment and we were truly honored to have been chosen as this sophisticated couple’s Maui Wedding Photographer. We felt a true affinity with this couple and were so happy to receive the following review from the groom after the couple received their images, we truly work with the most amazing couples!
“Dmitri is a true professional on every count. Talent, experience, vision, inspiration, and a magical ability to create around whatever has his eye. He shot my wedding in June and the result was phenomenal. My work in film allows me to work with excellent photographers frequently so I would like to think I can be discerning. Dmitri has captured my respect and trust. A true creative with the skill to back it up. Highest recommendation possible.”
