There was always something more between these two…so in middle school, Dustin was Hanna’s older brother’s friend, and she had the biggest crush on him for what felt like an eternity! Little did Dustin know! They became very close friends in their early 20s but never dated. They reconnected almost ten years later and knew they had to get married! How sweet is that?!

We were so touched as they exchanged their thoughtful and meaningful vows. You can feel the deep friendship and love for each other in these photos! Their middle school selves would never have guessed they would have eloped together years later in Maui! We were so happy to capture these moments they will treasure forever!

Hanna looked radiant in her creamy minimalist gown, perfect for a Maui elopement on the beach! She was the picture of effortless elegance, don’t you think? And Dustin looked very handsome in his linen suit, which perfectly complemented the beachy ambiance!

Our beautiful newlyweds initially did not want to have any formal ceremony. They thought to spend just their honeymoon in Maui, but they ultimately decided it would be nice to have some photos and memories of a Maui elopement! And they have never been either! We are so happy they chose otherwise!

The light in the following photos is so stunning! It was so soft and golden…Po’olenalena Beach was the gorgeous location for their Maui elopement. This picturesque beach has a long stretch of sandy beach that is perfect for catching one of Maui’s epic sunsets too!

We rarely hear such a long love story like our beautiful pair, so this felt deeply special! Without a doubt, their deep friendship will carry them with strength and support in their next chapter together as husband and wife! We couldn’t be more pleased for you two!

And the sunset that evening didn’t disappoint! How happy they look! It was such a great end to their incredible day – it stopped us in our tracks!

A warm mahalo to Hanna and Dustin for choosing Simple Maui Wedding for your Maui elopement! May you continue to grow in love and friendship for years to come! Until we see you again in paradise!
