Christopher & Garrett had a gorgeous Kapalua Wedding last week, and it was our great honor to be their coordinator. The Steeple House offered a scenic, comfortable setting, and the sweet couple brought a romantic, giddy energy. What a joy!
When these two first contacted us to book a wedding package, we asked what their vision for the day was. We love what they said:
“Relaxed. Easy-going… This is paradise — we are literally surrounded by paradise.“
They wanted a classic yet modern Hawaii wedding and spent years looking forward to it. This hard-working pair were together for 11 years before tying the knot, and it was worth the wait.
Today we’re sharing some favorite images from Christopher & Garrett’s Kapalua wedding and some insight into how we brought their vision to life. Check it all out below!
Is a Kapalua Wedding worth the wait? We hope we impressed these two great guys and created a warm, welcoming place for them to celebrate their love.
Christopher & Garrett met online in 2012 and quickly realized they were the perfect match. They soon felt married in their hearts, but decided to wait for their actual wedding until they completed school.
Now they’re both nurses and have built a beautiful life together. And as they grew and changed together, they also saw the world grow and change.
They’ve been looking forward to their wedding for 11 years, so that’s a lot of pressure! Luckily Christopher & Garrett discovered the scenic simplicity of a Kapalua wedding and decided it would be perfect for them.
We love how their day turned out. Their guests were excited and joyful, eager to provide support and fanfare. And Christopher & Garrett were absolutely radiant. Scroll down to see more photos from Karma Hill Photography!
This wasn’t Christopher & Garrett’s first time in Hawaii. In fact, they got engaged on Oahu. It was just the two of them on a secluded beach under a rainbow. They’ve always loved visiting the islands, so a gorgeous Kapalua wedding was the perfect fit.
They were joined by a small group of loved ones — siblings, nieces, friends. But they were sure to get in some alone time too.
After a joyful ceremony on the lawn of the Steeple House, we headed to nearby Ironwoods Beach. This is a vast, breezy location with sea cliffs and glistening sand — one of the best places for Maui wedding portraits.
So as the sun set, we got a few final pictures of the newlyweds and then sent them on their way to celebrate with their guests. We are so happy we got to be a part of Christopher & Garrett’s Kapalua wedding!
Congratulations, Christopher & Garrett! Here’s to a lifetime of happiness (and to many more visits to Hawaii!)
