Together on the shore of Ironwoods in Kapalua, Johanna and Maurice (Jo and Mo) tied their lives together with a gorgeous Beach Wedding in Maui. And it wasn’t just the spectacular setting that was gorgeous! This couple knows how to bring their style to the beach and make a splash! Keep scrolling to see all the amazing details.
Jo made an entrance in a gorgeous sweetheart gown with jewel embellishments and an elegant pulled-back hairstyle perfect for the sandy shore. She was absolutely stunning. Bringing his own flair to the beach, Mo looked fantastic in a vibing printed jacket with a black waistcoat and lapels. The best thing they wore? Those adoring looks.
Jo and Mo are lovingly known as MoJo because their crew grew up with the Power Puff Girls and they couldn’t let a good Mojojo reference slip by! This couple is strong beyond belief. Seven years ago, Jo was diagnosed with stomach cancer on December 18th. But Mo knew the power of reclaiming the date, and of amplifying the light in the darkness. He knew what he wanted to do, and figured what better date to reclaim with love. So years later, on that very day, he asked her to marry him. Jo says, “He asked on a bad day for a good reason. That’s how genuinely thoughtful he is.”
And now Jo is a stage V cancer survivor!! Love wins!! This amazing power couple grew up in the same small neighborhood but officially noticed each other nine years ago at a friend’s party. Mo, being the gentleman he is, “walked a sloppy drunk Jo safely home, across town, in the wee hours of the morning.” From then on it was pure chemistry, and the two talked every single day.
Together they have one furbaby named Swervy and love to go on hikes and watch Warrior games together, although they’re “somewhat bitter football rivals.” Mo backs the Raiders and Jo backs the 49ers! Yep, their love is that strong! Keep scrolling for more of this amazing couple!
Congratulations, Johanna and Maurice! Your love was astounding to witness, and we are truly honored to have been a part of your big day and love story. We wish you endless happy and healthy days in the decades ahead!
