Last Updated on April 25, 2024 by Karma Hill

Every couple who gets married in Maui has a unique story — a special journey that led them to each other. For Colleen & Donald, their love story begins 40 years ago, when they were teens. This was before they had kids and careers. They were just kids themselves, and they met at work.

They had no idea back then what the future held, that one day they would marry each other in one of Earth’s most beautiful places.

Today we’re sharing more of Colleen & Donald’s fantastic story. Plus, we’ve got some incredible photos from their Maui Destination wedding. Check it all out below!

From the 80s to the 21st Century

When Colleen & Donald met, they had no idea what a dating app was. But it ended up being responsible for their eventual reunion and romance.

That’s right, these two matched online — a perfect match if we do say so!

But they also have a lot to show for that time apart. Between them, they have five incredible kids who are blossoming into the most impressive young adults. And they were all there to cheer them on when they got married in Maui!

They also had great careers, and AJ is thoroughly enjoying his retirement. Here’s hoping that Colleen can join him with more free time soon!

They stay busy, so getting away and getting married in Maui was an easy choice. With their kids by their side and the glistening ocean around them, these two vowed to love and cherish each other forever.

We loved being a part of this Maui beach wedding and are so happy for these two love birds!

Time to Get Married in Maui

Though Colleen & Donald stay busy with work, kids, and hobbies, they always make time for each other. Still, this time in Hawaii with each other and their families was such a treat. Free from distractions and appointments, they were free to simply enjoy.

We could tell they were having the best time during their vacation, and once it was time to get married in Maui, they were relaxed and joyful.

This is the kind of energy we love to see, and it makes our job a breeze! They’re totally photogenic and incredibly kind.

Po’olenalena Beach was bright and calm during their elopement, and their kids were full of light and love. Keep scrolling to see more from this beautiful wedding. But be careful — it will make you want to get married in Maui too!
