The Sea of Love – Ky & Malanee Elope in Maui

May 14, 2022


Last Updated on April 25, 2024 by Karma Hill

When Ky & Malanee decided to Elope in Maui, they felt relief and excitement wash over them. This sweet couple works long hours, so they had little time and energy to plan an elaborate wedding. So instead, they packed their bags, flew to Hawaii, and married with their toes in the sand.

Of course, all their loved ones were there in spirit, and now they have amazing photos to share with everyone who celebrated with them from home. Check out their beautiful sunset elopement!

About This Couple

Malanee works at a cardio cath lab, and Ky is an equine dentist. They work hard but also know how to have a great time. It’s no wonder they met at a Music Festival. After all, they are two soulful and spirits up for any adventure.

Ky proposed to Malanee the night she graduated college. After that, they had even more adventure in store. Even though they’ve never been to Hawaii before, they chose to Elope in Maui!

They were having a great time on their vacation. We love how they brought great vibes and romantic energy to their ceremony!

Elope In Maui With All The Best Moments

Even though they didn’t have any in-person guests at their elopement, they still incorporated some favorite reception moments. They had a first look right by the ocean, and after the ceremony, they cut a small cake.

They were sure to get the sweet moments on video too! They upgraded their Maui elopement package to include footage of their ceremony that was ready for their family to watch that same night. Now everyone had a front-row seat to this beautiful ceremony.

A Sunset for the Ages

While most of their wedding day was cloudy, Malanee and Ky were blessed with a stunning sunset at the end of their elopement. We wished we had just a few more minutes of light to keep capturing the newlyweds with the fantastic backdrop.

With photos like these, they’ll have everyone ready to fly off to Maui too!
