When I Met You – Ashley & Jesse’s Maui Venue Wedding

Must love dogs” should be these two’s intro to their romance! Ashley and Jesse’s Maui venue wedding was the perfect reflection of their fun personalities and love story. These two lovebirds met over 13 years ago while working at a restaurant on and off… One day, Jesse returned to the restaurant to try and pick up some shifts when Ashley walked in with her new puppy, Biggie just before her shift began. That was the moment it all started, and the rest is history…

Fast forward 13 years later, and Jesse surprised Ashley on their anniversary with a helicopter ride into the mountains, where he got down on one knee and proposed! Ashley had always dreamed of an outdoor wedding, and Jesse had always wanted to go to Hawaii, so a Maui venue wedding was the perfect opportunity to combine their dreams! You’ll love these beautiful moments from their special day…

Their wedding day was a beautiful day at Rustic Hawaiian Ruins, surrounded by their friends and family who were happy to make the trip to celebrate the happy couple. The lush palms and tropical foliage really enhanced the tropical magic of their inimate ceremony…This venue feels like a private little paradise just for you! Ashley and Jesse kept their wedding simple and fun, reflecting their warm personalities…

It was their moment just for them, and they were so happy to begin the next step in their love story with all their loved ones in attendance. The day was full of love, laughter, and memories that will surely last a lifetime! We were honored to be a part of their special day!

They didn’t want to miss out on catching the sunset for some beautiful newlywed photos! Riding out to the sunset in style, no less! It was a dreamy and romantic ending to an incredible day… they look so happy and head over heels in love in these portraits! We love to include candid moments mixed with more traditional portraits…these two couldn’t stop smiling and giggling!

The back lace details of Ashley’s dress are so gorgeous! And we love a man in pink! Jesse’s flash of pink of his tie picked up his lovely bride’s pastel bouquet perfectly…
