Curran and Jennie, a lovely couple I have known for a while from Seattle tied the knot in Maui at a private villa called Kukahiko Estate. Jennie looked very elegant in her gorgeous dress from Luly Yang Couture.
The wedding planner, Your Aloha Wedding Company‘s Kara Byrne was very easy to work with and made sure things ran smoothly! It was a simple, Hawaiian style ceremony at the Maui Island, short and sweet. Pastor Vance Rosete played the P? (the conch shell) at the beginning of the ceremony. In Hawaii, P? is a deep part of the Hawaiian culture, and is used before a ceremony to mark the official beginning. In modern days some blow the P? (conch shell) to say Goodbye at sunset to end the day and to say Mahalo (thanks). In this case, both meanings were satisfied as it was a sunset ceremony!
And yes, what a sunset. We took full advantage to do some sunset photos at this beautiful Maui day. I love the soft light that comes with sunsets, and we managed to get some dramatic looks before everyone stopped to watch the sun disappear in to the ocean. After that the party started – Aloha Events Catering made sure everyone was fed well – no complaints from anyone! And then the cupcakes and dancing went on until late at this Maui wedding.
