Scot, In the Name of Love – Donelle & Steven’s Hawaii Venue Wedding

February 25, 2020


Last Updated on April 24, 2024 by Karma Hill

This Hawaii venue wedding at Gannon’s in Wailea was a celebration to remember! No lad or las could have been happier than Donelle & Steven on this special day. Bright and vivid, the weather showcased the tropics at its finest, warmth punctuated by a sweet ocean breeze. And in addition to the tang of the sea, rolling through the air that morning was the melodic sound of the highlands… because no true Scottman’s wedding would be complete without the unmistakable legato of the bagpipes!

Our couple’s love story began in a modern way–over the internet! And now our Canadian bride and Scottish groom have brought along their closest family and traveled to the middle of the Pacific Ocean to say “I do” on one of the most beautiful islands in the world! Keep scrolling for all of the magic (and kilts)!

Decked out in black and his family’s blue and red tartan, Steven was the epitome of a groom in love. And it was hard to look away from Donnelle’s simple yet sophisticated style. Reminiscent of old Gaelic ballads, her style perfectly complemented their unique love story.

Following the ceremony, we stepped down to the shore of Southside Beach to capture some intimate moments between the couple…

And what happens when a kilt, a lovely couple, and a Maui seaside all walk into a photo… SPECTACULAR images are captured!
