The Sun Will Shine – Julia & Jay’s Maui Beach Elopement

May 12, 2021

We’ve seen a lot of gorgeous weddings, but rarely have we seen one with such unique weather as Julia and Jay’s Maui Beach Elopement. The ceremony took place on the white sands of Poʻolenalena and began with a glistening downpour that resembled falling stars. It’s said that the island sends rain as a blessing on wedding days. Julia and Jay not only received the island’s blessing, but it also sent a surprise rainbow and a spectacular sunset.

The Maui Beach Elopement

Rain is rare on the south side, especially during the late spring and summer months. However, it can and does happen, and we’re always prepared with our special white umbrella for the couple. We loved how Julia and Jay simply let the weather be what it was and enjoyed their special “first look” during their Maui Beach Elopement. How sweet is Jay’s expression?!

As Reverend Richardo led Julia and Jay through the ceremony, the rain began to lighten and the sun started to shine. The day grew brighter with each moment our couple took toward marriage. And then, right during their kiss, the sky cleared and a rainbow shimmered in the sky!

We like to think it’s the perfect representation of Julia and Jay’s bright future! Nothing can dampen love as long as you’re together. Yet the weather didn’t stop there. The sun shone through with brilliant hues of gold and honey, and Julia and Jay were treated to their first sunset as a married couple.

Our Couple’s Story

Jay has a sweet daughter and together Julia and Jay have three fur babies. They met through a mutual friend in college and have been best friends for over twelve years. When Julia was growing up, she would visit Maui annually and continued to visit as much as possible. Two years ago, she celebrated her thirtieth birthday on the island with Jay. When it came to choosing the perfect location for their elopement, Julia’s home-away-from-home was an easy choice. Keep scrolling for more of this blessed day!
