It was Chelsea’s idea to get married on Maui at an Ironwoods Beach Elopement, she’s always wanted to visit and David was all for the idea! He’s a “go-with-whatever-chels-says” kind of guy 🙂 . He even said himself, “Hey! Happy wife, happy life. Right?” lol.
First Look With Dad
Before the ceremony started, Chelsea’s dad and our groom took their places prior to our bride arriving. We positioned David in his ceremony spot and just a few steps by the beach entrance, we positioned Chelsea’s dad so he could have a first look moment with his daughter! When Chelsea arrived with her mom, she was so excited and extremely happy when we put the flower crown on! She felt beautiful and went straight into the first look with her dad. They were both emotional and tried to hold back tears because she said if she cried during the first look, then dad would cry, and her makeup would be destroyed.
They collected themselves, linked arms and Reverend Joe Miles blew the conch shell so David knew it was time to turn around and see his bride for the first time. It was a beautiful moment!! And one we know none of them will ever forget. They had a beautiful evening and it even rained for the first time during their stay. So they were happy to know rain is a sign of good luck!
Intimate yet Documented
Chelsea and David loved the idea of having an intimate elopement at Ironwoods Beach and then sharing amazing photos from our sister company and videos from their GoPro at their reception with all their family and friends. And we think this is a great idea because then you get the best of both worlds!
Overall this was truly a day to remember and we are so glad we could be part of it! Thank you, Chelsea and David, for sharing your special day with Simple Maui Wedding. We loved getting to know you both and wish you all the best on the journey ahead! Congratulations and Warm Aloha!
