Kickflip of the Heart – Beatriz & Giovanni’s Maui Beach Elopement

February 13, 2020


Last Updated on April 25, 2024 by Karma Hill

It was endless blue skies and cool tropical breezes for this Maui beach elopement on Wailea’s Southside shoreline. The night before Beatriz & Giovanni’s special day, a dusting of snow graced the Haleakala summit, anointing the occasion with the heavenly mana of the island…

Hailing from Austin, this joyous couple first bumped wheels at the skatepark–and within moments, their hearts were flipping along with their boards! Four years later, in the warmth of his parent’s loving home, Giovanni asked Beatriz to spend forever with him… and she said yes, of course!

Keep swiping for all the heart-flipping beauty of their Maui beach wedding…

The kindhearted Kahu Richardo Hanako’o officiated the ceremony. And as Giovanni’s mother and father bore witness, a small pod of humpbacks danced across the oceanfront while the couple said: “I do.”

Although it was Giovanni’s parents who were physically present for the union, Beatriz’s family was there in spirit… They rested close to her in precious photo charms laced around her bouquet with ribbons of baby-blue.

Whales, blue skies, and snow… how many auspicious signs can one couple have during their Maui destination wedding? There’s always room for one more!

The ceremony faded into the night with a blissful sunset of soft cherry and lavender, perfectly suited to this couple’s spunky magic.
