While Cheryl and Christian would have loved a large wedding in their hometown of Washington DC’s metro area, they both felt that it was safest to elope in Maui and celebrate later when things get better. And we can’t think of a more intimate or beautiful Plan B! Basked in the soft light of the late afternoon and with the crisp, salty air of the ocean on their cheeks, Cheryl and Christian celebrated their union with just their closest loved ones watching on.
Christian works in IT for the government, and Cheryl is a registered nurse. They have two beautiful and brilliant children, Juliana and Isabella, and love to travel! Pre-pandemic, Cheryl and Christian sought out adventures to neighboring states, but with the new stay-at-home era, they keep their voyages closer to home. Their trip to elope in Maui is their first big journey since the pandemic began!
Cheryl and Christian met online a few years ago. For their third anniversary, they celebrated with a lunch out on the town. On their way home, they debated dining in or having dinner out with their daughters. Imagine Cheryl’s surprise when they walked into their home to find their two best friends (both of whom were chefs) already preparing dinner in our couple’s kitchen!
Cheryl was surprised, but Christian quickly went to work putting the finishing touches on their meal. Before they could sit down and eat, someone knocked on the door. Cheryl’s brother and cousin had joined the party! At one point, Cheryl turned and there was Christian, down on his knee, asking Cheryl to make him the luckiest man in the world. Our bride reflects, “It was very intimate and special as we were surrounded by a few loved ones.” Keep scrolling for more of this beautiful and sweet couple as they elope in Maui!
