Elizabeth & Anders Elope in Magical Maui! March 28, 2017 22:32
Elizabeth & Anders considered a big wedding in their home town but then came across images of weddings in Maui on the internet and their decision was made!
Within hours of contacting Married with Aloha, the couple had all of their wedding day arrangements made, including an In-Room Hair & Makeup appointment for the bride as well as dinner reservations at one of the Island's many romantic restaurants.
For their ceremony site, Elizabeth & Anders decided on White Rock Beach in Wailea, just a stone's throw from their resort. Marla, the on-site coordinator, greeted the couple with warm Aloha and ushered the groom towards the picturesque south end of the beach where their minister awaited. The blow of a conch shell queued the bride to begin her walk across flower petals scattered along the sand towards her soon-to-be husband.
With the late afternoon sun casting a warm glow on the bride & groom, they exchanged their vows and fresh flower leis while photographer Naomi captured lots of beautiful images. Meanwhile, Marla snapped away with a Polaroid camera. Anders literally swept his bride off her feet when they were pronounced 'husband & wife' by their minister and they shared their first kiss as a married couple.
The newlyweds enjoyed a sparkling cider toast while watching whales breach in celebration just a few hundred yards offshore. Anders vowed to bring his bride back to the same spot for a five year vow renewal and Elizabeth beamed in agreement.
Everyone at Married With Aloha wishes the couple a long & happy life together!
