A Destination Wedding at The Four Seasons Maui

Nicole & Ryan’s Destination Wedding at The Four Seasons Maui                

   Nicole and Ryan tied the knot overlooking the pacific at the Four Seasons Wailea, Maui. They had over 70 friends and family members follow them all the way from Australia which speaks volumes as to who they are and how they treat friends and family. Our kind of people. Nothing beats photographing a close family affair like this one. Cheers!

An intimate Maui wedding at Kukahiko Estate :: Sarah and Brett

Sarah and Brett met eleven years ago at a Super Bowl party of a mutual friend. Of course, life has its ways and took them on separate paths a year after. They reconnected in 2010 at the Vancouver Olympics and have been together since. Brett proposed at the top of Rockefeller Center in NYC after he carried the ring around the city in his pocket all day and had some random tourists take photos of the knee proposal.

Their intimate Maui wedding at the Kukahiko Estate was filled with emotion as their closest friends and family members joined them to celebrate their union.

It was a great honor to be a part of their wedding day!

Thank you to the talented team of Maui Wedding Professionals that collaborated on this stunning event!

gail and virgil :: the makena golf and beach resort

Gail and Virgil – this sweet and FUN couple stole our hearts. Their pure love and tender affection for each other are one of a kind. Both being the youngest of of their families, their wedding was extremely special for both sides. An exceptional celebration with friends and family from California, New Jersey, Texas and even the Philippines. 2 and 3 child families coming all that way – now thats love!

Virgil put tears in my eyes every time he spoke to Gail. What a complete gentleman :) Their ceremony was so heart felt with the Filipino wedding tradition of arras, which is the exchange of coins to symbolize their promise to support each other, followed by the tradition of the veil and the cord. These unique traditions full of culture and meaning made it all so sentimental.

We were so honored to photograph such a special couple’s wedding – Congratulations Gail and Virgil! Thanks for the good times ……… and the gray goose 😉

Ciao, Sandra
