Natalie & Josh’s modern tropical Maui wedding was the perfect blend of romance, fun and laid-back luxury and we loved being a part of it!
The Sugarman Estate, also know as Honua Kai Lani, is one of our favorite Maui wedding venues on the South side of Maui, just minutes from the elegant resorts of Wailea, this gorgeous ocean front estate is nestled between wide open lava fields and miles of scenic shoreline.
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!
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.

Mario, a distinguished Argentinian business man and Jamie – free spirited yogi with an infectious smile. Absolutely in love, these international lovers tied the knot over looking the pacific ocean at the Four Seasons Maui Resort in Wailea with just a handful of close friends and family. It was an honor to photograph their beautiful Maui wedding and a pleasure to meet them both.
Cheers Mario & Jamie!
