Kathleen & Mario's Blue Hawaii Elopement at Maui's Makena Cove March 29, 2017 20:42
Referred to as 'Secret Beach' by Maui locals, Makena Cove is certainly one of the most picturesque beaches in all of Hawai'i, and the spot Kathleen and Mario chose for their elopement.
Married With Aloha's attention to detail included an In-Room Hair & Makeup appointment for the bride and the exact combination of tropical flowers she requested for her bridal bouquet.
The couple liked the idea of a morning wedding as they were likely to have the beach all to themselves...and they did! Their on-site coordinator, Marla, had a beautifully decorated cake table set up when the couple arrived.
With the faint sound of Maui's trade winds rustling the palm fronds and gentle waves lapping the shore, Reverend Diana blew the conch shell and led the couple through a beautiful ceremony, including a traditional Hawaiian lei exchange by the bride & groom.
After being pronounced 'husband & wife', Kathleen & Mario enjoyed a sparkling cider toast while watching a pair of Hawaii's Green Sea Turtles frolic just a few feet from shore.
The bride marveled at the beauty of the location and her joy was captured for posterity in the post-ceremony portrait session with Naomi. The newlyweds also enjoyed the instant gratification of Polaroid moments captured by Marla.
The Married With Aloha team wishes the couple a life-time of happiness!
