This romantic, rustic Kukahiko Estate Maui wedding was what wedding dreams are made of! The sweetest bride and groom, surrounded by their closest family and friends, at an unbelievably stunning oceanfront estate on the gorgeous shores of Maui!
Heather and Victor met in their freshman year of college and have been inseparable ever since – together 14 years before they decided on a destination wedding in Maui, the location of their first vacation together as a couple. We love to hear a good proposal story, after 14 years it’s always great to hear that the groom can still think of ways to catch his bride off guard and surprise her! Here’s how their adventure began, courtesy of the bride:
“We have been together for so long, that we decided last September….let’s just get married! I was not expecting a proposal or ring at all. For our 14th anniversary in March 2016, I wanted to go on a small weekend trip just to hang out, eat and see some sort of casual entertainment like a show. A couple months prior to our anniversary, Victor had planned a Las vegas trip. I thought it was odd that he was planning a vegas trip so far in advance considering Vegas is a quick/simple weekend getaway. Little did I know he was going to propose. I don’t get surprised very easily, so when he got down on one knee right before we left the hotel for dinner…..I was so floored, I felt like I stared at the ring and him for such a long time, he actually had to say, “Errmm, so are you going to answer the question or not?” ~ Heather
The bride and groom had just one request for their Maui wedding photos, to be able to look at any image from the day and just feel happy! We hope you feel that way as you scroll through their gorgeous wedding images below!
