This Hale Ko’olani Maui wedding is what fairytale dreams are made of; romance, endless charm and mystique, this breathtaking wedding had it all!
“He probably looked like a normal guy in a sweater to everyone else, but to me, I don’t know what it was – I saw him and instantly felt happy, secure, so hopeful. ” ~ Karen
Karen from California, and Sean from Lima, Peru tied the knot in the gorgeous Saint Peter’s Church in Lima on April 26th 2014. Built in 1638, this church is part of the very cultural and historic Centre of Lima. The architecture and art were absolutely breathtaking. Family and friends traveled from all over the States and South America to celebrate with Karen and Sean and we can understand why. Karen and Sean were amazing hosts, showing everyone the utmost respect and treating everyone as if they were all the guest of honor. These two are great people, in love and so into family, culture and tradition. We had such a great time being around them
Arturo De Noriega of La Fete Event Planning and a select team of elite Lima Wedding Professionals collaborated to create this stunning Golden Bohemian Wedding Reception at the Marishenko’s House in Barranco, a small coastal town in a very artsy, hipster part of Lima. Some of the highlights of their event were the jaw-dropping details picked and hand painted by Sean’s mother, the exquisite peruvian cuisine and heavenly desserts carefully put together by Martha Caceda with Lucha Parodi’s Creatividad Culinaria, live music by Elvira Zhamaletdinova and the famous “Hora Loca” (Crazy Hour)…a traditional Peruvian wedding event. Just when the wedding party is winding down, a team of dancers show up with costumes, hats, balloons, masks etc …. and they get everyone (we are talking toddlers to grandparents) up dancing again and party rages on until early hours the next day. They know how to throw a party in Lima!
Thank you Karen and Sean for making us a part of your incredible wedding! It was an honor documenting your day! Until we meet again!

Erin and Manuel were such a pleasure to photograph. They were married at the Westin Maui Resort. We were so sad that we did not get to photograph their wedding as we had a prior commitment on their date. However I was extremely honored that they opted to do a after wedding portrait session with me (Dmitri) a few days later. They were down for anything – including getting on a sketchy rope swing to get a couple fun shots. I truly enjoyed their company and capturing their love Great times!
