Few things are as rewarding as helping a couple as in love (and as wild in the best of ways!) as Joy and Ranzi have their dream Maui beach elopement. Seeing these two in their element and embracing their marriage with open arms had us wanting to burst out in Disney songs, which we knew Joy and Ranzi would happily sing along to!
Joy and Ranzi come from the Philippines and they missed their favorite ocean. So having a Maui beach elopement seemed like the perfect way to tie in their past with their future. The shore of Baldwin beach featured soft and dreamy lighting, which was the ideal backdrop for such a vibrant couple.
It was attraction at first sight for Joy and Ranzi. When Joy was fourteen, she spent the night at a friend’s house and while they were discussing old crushes, Ranzi was mentioned. After a quick peek at his Facebook, Joy was hooked. She asked her friend if it was okay for her to friend him, and the result was a chat long into the night. Joy says she didn’t know how Ranzi would fit into her life, but she knew he had to be a part of it. Or should we cue Disney and sing, “Part of heeeeeer woooorld.”
The engagement came years later, and the story is so sweet, we had to have our bride share it:
“We went to Washington state for my belated birthday celebration this past February. He took me to Olympic National Park where the Tree of Life is. There were quite a few people there waiting to take pictures underneath the tree so we spent our time taking photos on the beach.”
“After everyone else had had their turn to take pictures, finally it was ours. He knelt on one knee and I don’t remember everything he said but I do remember the incredibly lame pun — “I wanted to propose to you under the Tree of Life because we’re starting a life together.”
How sweet are these two?! Keep scrolling for all the moments of this Maui beach elopement!
Yasss! We are so here for this awesome pose! We love it when couples let loose and enjoy their wedding day!
Congratulations, Joy and Ranzi! We were thrilled to be a part of your Maui beach elopement. We wish you all the very best in the years ahead!
