Last Updated on April 25, 2024 by Karma Hill

Janikka and Rainier fell so much in love with Maui when they visited several years ago that when it came to planning their marriage, it was the first place that came to their minds! Not only did they recently celebrate their Maui venue wedding, but they spent their beautiful honeymoon here right after!

A funny thing happened when they went to a luau when they were just dating – the lady at the front desk thought they were married, and they said, “no, we’re just dating,” and she replied, “well, you better do something about that!” Clearly, she could tell how much in love they were…we like to think fate had a hand it their union! Keep reading to see how their dream day unfolded!

It Had To Be Maui

Our couple’s Maui venue wedding was an absolute dream come true! After six years of dating, they knew that Maui was the perfect place to say “I do”. Their ceremony took place on the grassy knoll at Gannon’s, surrounded by lush greenery and stunning views of the ocean. The weather cooperated perfectly, providing a beautiful sunny day for this special occasion.

Janikka looked absolutely breathtaking in her modern white gown, while Rainier looked sharp in his suit. Their love for each other was palpable throughout the entire ceremony as they exchanged vows and shared their first kiss as husband and wife! Who could have guessed after their first visit all those years ago they would tie the knot in Maui? Their friends and family were more than happy to make the big trip to celebrate their Maui venue wedding as you can see by the joy in their smiles…

Off Into The Sunset

After the happy cheers and a few happy tears, we went down to Southside Beach to capture our happy newlyweds’ first moments as husband and wife. It felt utterly surreal for both since they only played at a Maui venue wedding after their first trip here! But it couldn’t have been a more perfect decision.

It’s clear in these beautiful portraits that this couple had been waiting for this moment for a long time, and now that it had finally arrived, they were savoring every second of it. Their love radiated from every photo – a true testament to the power of love and commitment.
