Dori and Paul wanted to have an intimate celebration when they tied the knot. Instead of planning a large wedding, they opted to have a Hawaii beach elopement. Most importantly, their ceremony was relaxed and beautiful, so they could both enjoy this moment! Continue scrolling to experience this event for yourself.

Dori and Paul’s Hawaii beach elopement was simple, quaint, and magical! Although there were no guests in attendance, Dori still made sure to make a grand entrance. Karma Hill Photography effortlessly captured the second our bride and groom had their first looks. There was nothing but loving smiles and joyous expressions on their faces at this moment. Not to mention, Dori is a breathtaking bride in her lace overlay gown and delicate flower crown. Then, Paul looks handsome in his sophisticated khaki and sage green outfit.

The Location for Their Hawaii Beach Elopement

Baldwin Beach set the stage for this event, and everything about this destination was exquisite! This ceremony was during the sun’s golden hour, so its rays left a warm glow on the shore. We adore this rugged location because it has aqua-blue water and pearl sand. However, this remote North Maui spot created an intimate but dreamy ambiance for the wedding. The picturesque landscape and clear weather were the perfect backdrops for Dori and Paul’s Hawaii elopement package!

Our Couple’s Story

Dori and Paul’s story began when they matched on an online dating app. The first time they met in person — they immediately hit it off! Our lovely couple stayed at the restaurant talking for about four hours. After three years of dating, Paul surprised Dori and asked her to marry him! Dori had just finished cleaning the house when he arrived and popped the question. Above all, Paul proposed to Dori with the exact ring she wanted!

Currently, Dori is an occupational therapist, while Paul works an IT job for DHL. Where Dori is extraverted, Paul can be introverted — making him her perfect match!

It was no surprise that Dori and Paul chose Maui as their wedding destination. The island is known for its stunning beaches, warm weather, and relaxed atmosphere – all qualities that perfectly fit this easygoing couple wanting a stress-free wedding experience.
