Emily and Kyle chose to elope in Maui at the ancient and beautiful Rustic Hawaiian Ruins. Our Maui elopements commonly take place on the shoreside, so when Emily and Kyle decided on a venue, we were thrilled for the unique opportunity. Surrounded by rustic textures and history, a Maui wedding doesn’t get more intimate than this!
Reverend Joe Miles opened the ceremony with the sacred blowing of the Hawaiian conch shell. Then it was Emily’s turn to make an impact. Wearing a satin off-the-shoulder gown, with pin-worthy locks and a smile big enough to outshine the Maui sun, Emily radiated with happiness and was simply stunning.
Emily and Kyle chose a venue to elope in Maui because of the rich textures and traditional setting. With the entire venue to themselves, they said “I do” in one of the island’s oldest churches, built with hand-laid coral bricks and featuring a striking driftwood cross. Intimate, traditional, and entirely original.
Following the ceremony, we took our couple on the short stroll to the shore, where our sister company, Karma Hill Photography, captured some of the dreamiest sunset photos we’ve seen. Keep scrolling for what our photographer called, “A sun verse.”
Emily works as an administrative coordinator for a hospice agency, and Kyle is a lineman for a utility company. They don’t have human children yet, but their two dogs take up plenty of room in their hearts. Together they enjoy spending time with their furbabies, fun activities like bowling, playing sports outside, watching Netflix, and spending time with friends and family.
Emily and Kyle met when her best friend married his brother. After college, Emily moved in with her BFF, and soon, destiny brought her together with Kyle. They’ve been together almost eight years, and during their trip to Aruba, Kyle proposed on a spectacular beach. Emily said, “It really was the most amazing moment and I was completely in shock.” And we know this is only the beginning of this couple’s beautiful story together…
Mahalo nui loa, Emily and Kyle, for choosing us to help you elope in Maui. We had a joy working with you, and wish you only the best in the years ahead.
