Alexa and Sal’s journey to the altar has all the elements of a fantastic love story. The bride is a classically trained ballet dancer and studied social worker with an altruistic heart. The groom is a well-read entrepreneur, skilled hunter and great outdoorsman. Both were raised on the remote island of Maui on a healthy diet of sea, sand, and sunshine. If Sal and Alexa were viewed as celestial objects you would see them originally as just high school acquaintances, two separate gravitationally bound structures associated with a common position in space. They’d orbit around Maui along paths that would occasionally bring them within range, while other times their educations and travels would spiral them continents apart. However, as fate would have it, the love of their families, and their deep roots in the islands would ultimately pull them both homeward again. Once back on Maui they were reintroduced by their mutual friend Mark Mayeda, who would later officiate their wedding. Eventually these heavenly bodies would unite in such a way that left all of us seeing fireworks.
Alexa and Sal were married on a perfect September day along the slopes of Haleakala. The intimate villa overlooking an olive farm provided a picturesque venue for the marriage of his Italian heritage, with her rustic upcountry charm. The stylish details, handcrafted cocktails and gourmet food where a reflection of the couple’s casual elegance and excellent taste. The love and commitment that took place between Alexa and Sal on their wedding day was absolutely palpable. Everyone in attendance was fortunate enough to have witnessed the perfect culmination of their love story.

An exotic couple in a stunning location. What more could you ask for? Kyra, Kale and I had a great morning navigating jungles and cliff-hopping on the upper west side together for their Maui Engagement session. I was a little intimidated after perusing Kyra’s instagram and realizing she has quite the eye for photography in additon to being a truly amazing hula performer. Kale, is also the most passionate wedding officiant I’ve ever had the honor of working with and his zealosness for life just oozes out of him. Their Maui wedding took place a few days ago at Olowalu and the amount of love from friends and family accross maui was unfathomable. Goose-bumps …… Thanks for making us a part of the big day!
