Cristina & Mark Elope at Maui's Picturesque Makena Cove May 05, 2017 20:40
Picture-perfect Makena Cove (also known as 'Secret Beach') on Maui's sunny south shore has an allure that many couples seek for their destination wedding.
The bride was all smiles as she walked across the powdery white sand beach toward her awaiting groom. After a blowing of the conch shell and Hawaiian chant, their minister led the couple through their marriage vows and lei exchange.
Though the couple hadn't written vows to one another, after exchanging rings, they took the opportunity to let each other know just how much they cherished one another. Certainly, those would be the words they would look back on from their Big Day, providing them with the most vivid memories.
Their photographer, Naomi, captured some beautiful images of Cristina & Mark as, just offshore, a pair of Hawaii's Green Sea turtles frolicked near the reef.
With another blow of the conch shell, the couple was pronounced 'Husband & Wife' and toasted one another with sparkling cider as the late afternoon sun began to dip beyond the horizon.
Cristina & Mark's wedding was a simple affair and it was exactly what they both wanted. The couple vowed to return to the very same spot for their five year anniversary and vow renewal and the Married With Aloha team said they'd be right there awaiting them!
