There was nothing but clear skies when it came to Lauren and Louie’s Maui Venue Wedding (both literally and figuratively!). The 5 Palms in Wailea featured spectacular views of the sapphire ocean and brilliant scenic coastline stretching as far as the eye could see. But nothing was more dazzling and eye-catching than our sweet couple! Lauren and Louie lit up the shore with their glowing vibes, so clearly on top of the world as they said “I do” to the love of their lives.
In the morning hours, while the sun is vivid yet still gentle, loved ones gathered on the manicured lawn of the 5 Palms for Lauren and Louie’s Maui Venue Wedding. As they anticipated the bride’s entrance, our photographer asked Louie if he could guess what Lauren’s dress would look like. He nailed it! Someone knows his bride! Louie’s smile when he watched Lauren walk in was priceless.
Wearing an open-backed gown with lace overlay and a demi-train, Lauren looks radiant. We’re loving her gorgeous fresh-faced with look, with glowing skin and a loose bun that’s perfect for the salty air. Keep scrolling for more of this sweet couple!
Lauren works as a receptionist at Honda, and Louie currently works for the US Air Force as a weapons instructor. Their love story began in quite possibly the purest and sweetest way possible, beneath the arches of the church while they were both children. Even as a seven-year-old, Lauren knew there was something special, and super cute, about the nine-year-old Louie.
But it wasn’t until after high school when Louie was on leave for Christmas and visiting family that the ball got rolling. Our couple bumped into each other at a Jersey Mike’s and couldn’t be separated until it was time for him to leave. It was long-distance for a little while until Lauren moved to be closer to Louie’s station. During a hometown visit to California, Louie planned a couples photoshoot. But it was so much more than that!
Louie’s parents are professional photographers, and they knew the plan. One second Lauren was posing for the camera, and the next she was turning to find Louie down on his knee! The sweet moment was all caught on film! On the topic of sweet moments in front of the camera, keep scrolling for more!
Congratulations, Lauren and Louie! Thank you for trusting us with your Maui Venue Wedding. We wish you all the joy and love in the decades ahead!
