Soulmates on the Sand – Amy & Russ’ Micro Wedding in Maui

March 28, 2021


Last Updated on April 25, 2024 by Karma Hill

Amy knows that she and Russ are “soulmates,” and it seems a Micro Wedding in Maui was written in the stars for these two. With COVID canceling all of their prior Big Day plans and with a trip to Maui already planned, the island was the perfect sandy venue for Amy and Russ to say, “I do.” Come see all of the joy and love of their very special day!

The Micro Wedding in Maui 

There was magic in the air when Amy graced the shore. Reverend Kimo blew the conch shell as the ocean lapped gently in the background. Amy and Russ had four special guests in attendance, Amy’s daughter and two of the couple’s best friends. But another very special guest made a surprise appearance. A Hawaiian monk seal rolled onto the shore to bask in the sun and the warm glow of Amy and Russ’ union.

Our Couple’s Story

Amy is a realtor in Buffalo NY and Ft. Myers Florida, and also owns a small bookkeeping business. Russ is a retired business professor with an accounting business called Small Business Resources.

Amy and Ross met in 1990 and dated for a year shortly afterward. Sixteen years later, they rekindled their friendship, and it was like finding their missing piece. Amy says, “We are soulmates, and we think almost exactly alike at times. It’s creepy!” But because Amy was recently divorced and her children were still young, they waited to progress things forward.

They were at last engaged in 2019 and the joy and love they radiated during their Micro Wedding in Maui was unparalleled! Just look at how genuine those smiles are! A circle of flowers, the ocean keeping tempo, the love of your life holding your hand, does a first dance get much better than this? Keep scrolling for all the sweet moments shared between these soulmates!!
