Intimate & Special

It was during a hike in September 2022 when Stephen got down on one knee and proposed, making their love official. Fast forward to their wedding day, and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. Surrounded by loved ones, they had a beautiful and intimate ceremony at the stunning Wailea Beach Resort.

The ceremony location, overlooking the ocean and the picturesque west side of Maui, provided an enchanting backdrop. With China walking down the aisle with her parents, everyone couldn’t help but be captivated by the sheer beauty of the moment. The couple’s happiness and radiance were undeniable, and they looked absolutely stunning together.
