We are SO incredibly honored to share that one of our favorite weddings from last year has been published in the Fall 2016 issue of Inside Weddings Magazine!
Amy and Hassib’s intimate Maui wedding graced the pages of this gorgeous magazine and we could not be more excited to share a few images of the feature below. We had so much fun photographing this couple, they were warm and relaxed and the whole day was just amazing; from their traditional Catholic church wedding to their romantic, chandelier lit private reception cabana at Merriman’s Kapalua, it was all just as stunningly beautiful as the couple themselves! We’ll leave you with some great advice on planning a destination wedding from the couple below, make sure to scroll down to the bottom for a full list of vendors from this amazing event! Mahalo to Amy and Hassib for choosing Dmitri and Sandra as your Maui wedding photographer!
Eschewing family tradition, the couple decided to have an intimate destination wedding in Maui, far from the couple’s home in Sydney, Australia. “In my culture, we have very large weddings, so to have only very close friends and family was unique,” explains the groom. Amy and Hassib chose the island because they wanted a relaxing location where their nearest and dearest could truly enjoy themselves. “Hawaii is magical,” gushes Amy. Planning your nuptials from halfway around the world is no easy task, even when the bride is a self-described “control freak” Bringing in an expert consultant was essential.
As they did with their wedding, the newlyweds keep their advice to future brides and grooms simple: “Just make your fiancée happy,” asserts Hassib. “But also help with input or decide on a few things,” he adds. Concludes Amy, “Listen to yourself and follow what you both want.”
