Each Favorite Memory – Chaney & Bryan’s Maui Venue Wedding

October 7, 2022


It was a gorgeous afternoon in Kihei. The palms were swaying in the gentle trade winds. The sunlight dappled through the tall, old trees. The gardens at the Rustic Hawaiian Ruins were bright and blossoming. And Chaney & Bryan were married in a memorable and beautiful Maui Venue Wedding!

The couple was stunning: relaxed yet whimsical, romantic yet fun. We loved working with these two and are excited to share some images from their unforgettable ceremony. Take a look!

Our Journey, Our Memories

There is so much to love about Chaney & Bryan’s Maui Venue Wedding. Chaney’s bridal style is elegant yet unique, and their wedding vibe is earthy and timeless. Plus, they’re so full of love and trust — it was a joy to see them commit their lives to each other!

Chaney & Bryan made their wedding even more unique by having a guest officiate their ceremony. This allowed them to bring so much personalization and heart to their service, and they had us all in tears.

But how did beautiful Chaney and adorable Bryan end up falling in love and having a Maui Venue Wedding?

It all started in 2015, when they were coworkers at Costco. They bonded when working the night shift together, and eventually discovered a spark between them.

They had worked together a few times when Chaney nearly tripped while cleaning the floors. Was it the near fall that left her breathless? No, it was Bryan catching her.

They soon realized they were dating, and as years passed, they found themselves in a joyful, loving relationship.

After getting engaged on a fun-filled trip to San Fransisco, it was time to start planning their wedding.

They had visited Maui before, for a brief getaway just before Covid shutdowns. Looking back on their memories here and hoping to have a full wedding experience with a small group of loved ones, they put it all together: a Maui venue wedding would be the perfect celebration for them!

The Rustic Hawaiian Ruins – A Garden Setting for a Maui Venue Wedding

Chaney & Bryan married at the Rustic Hawaiian Ruins, an outdoor chapel and garden in Kihei. We love how the trees and landscaping keep this area cooler than other wedding venues in Maui. This fun group was headed out to a dinner cruise after the ceremony, so we planned an afternoon ceremony at this shaded venue.

There is a gorgeous altar framed by tall palms and an old rock wall, and winding paths take couples and their guests through an abundance of tropical plant life. We loved having Chaney & Bryan’s Maui Venue Wedding at this dreamy location.

After the beautiful pair officially became husband & wife, we took some romantic couples portraits around the ruins. These two are young, in love, newly married, and can’t keep their hands off each other — so we absolutely loved photographing them! All we needed to do was give them a few suggestions and prompts, and they were ready to get photographed.

Everything about Chaney & Bryan’s Maui venue wedding was a joy, and we’re so glad we could coordinate it!
