Soccer and Love Goals – Jill & Eric’s Maui Beach Elopement

April 2, 2021

Jill and Eric met playing soccer in San Francisco, and little did they know that the end goal had nothing to do with a net and everything to do with a Maui Beach Elopement! Ironwoods set the stage with rocky outcroppings and the deep, wild shores of Maui’s west side. With luminous lighting and plenty of sweet embraces, this wedding day is a must-see!

The Maui Beach Elopement

Beneath the endless Maui sky, Reverend Richardo led the ceremony with wise Hawaiian adages. The ocean sent its sounds of Aloha while Jill and Eric held gazes as they exchanged leis and wedding rings. Read on to see our couple joined in marriage and celebrating with a first kiss.

You know, just the ordinary first kiss in front of a spectacular ocean view with powder-soft sands beneath your feet, the Maui sun on your shoulders, and the towering cliffs of Ironwoods beach in the backdrop. Nothing to write home about… Seriously though, how incredible is this Maui Beach Elopement!

Following the ceremony, we escorted Jill and Eric around the premises to capture all those luscious dynamic shots Ironwoods is known for. We loved how Jill’s gorgeous dress blended ever-so-perfectly with the rustic ocean hues.

Designed by her own mother, Jill’s turquoise ombre gown with floral overlay looks like it was sewn from the sea. Having designed three out of four of her daughters’ wedding dresses, Jill’s mother knows her way around Big Day drapery! What a special way to be a part of the before process as well as the actual ceremony. Well done, Mom!

Our Couple’s Story

Jill owns a baking company that specializes in homemade-style desserts. She bakes desserts & designs dessert tables for weddings and everyday life events. Eric is an engineer at Stripe for a company in San Francisco. They have a dog named Finley who they adore and spend most of their free time with. Jill and Eric met while playing on the same recreational soccer team in San Francisco.

It took TWO years before they began talking, but it didn’t take long after that for the romance to brew! Their relationship started with emails from Jill giving Eric pro marathon running tips, and after a run together with friends, their relationship blossomed (or maybe, in this case, it took off with a sprint!).
