Hawaiian Dreams – Janelle & David’s Maui Elopement

June 9, 2023


Last Updated on April 25, 2024 by Karma Hill

Janelle and David’s Maui elopement was truly a celebration of love, life, and new beginnings. Both retired police officers and our lovely couple decided to take the plunge and elope in beautiful Hawaii! After being married before and doing the “conventional” wedding tradition, Janelle suggested they go somewhere to elope and marry. That’s when they came across our site, Simple Maui Wedding, after researching different options on the internet. They had never visited Maui or any of the Hawaiian islands before, but it had always been a dream for both of them to visit! As you can imagine, we were delighted to bring that vision to life!

Our lovely couple, who hail from Downunder, met while working together, and their friendship blossomed into love. They got engaged on Valentine’s Day 2021 during a picnic lunch overlooking the ocean – sounds divine! And so their journey to becoming husband and wife began…

Their Maui elopement was on beautiful evening, with Janelle looking stunning in a simple yet elegant dress and David looking relaxed in his casual, crisp beachy button-up. They exchanged their vows at one of our team favorites, Southside Beach, with crystal-clear waters and swaying palm trees in the distance. Needless to say, this idyllic setting was exactly what these two dreamed of when they thought of tying the knot in Maui!

Overjoyed And In Love

Their newlywed portraits showcased not just their love but also their fun personalities! The happy pair were relaxed, happy, and authentic with one another. These relaxed, romantic Maui elopement portraits are a pure expression of the loving bond they share. We especially love the moment when they splashed around in the water! Their unbridled joy was palpable and so heartwarming to see in the way they looked at each other, held hands, and laughed…
