My Heart Skipped A Beat – Laurie & Gregory’s Maui Elopement

March 1, 2023


Love can be found in the most unexpected places, even online! That’s how our sweet couple, Laurie and Greg, met on eight years ago. Their first date was at a wine bar, where they talked for hours and shared a kiss that made Laurie’s heart skip a beat! It sounds like the most romantic first date! Fast forward to today, and they have been living together for four years and are ready to tie the knot! Keep scrolling to see more of these lovebirds’ Maui elopement…

Elope On A Whim

It turns out that Greg’s good friend, who he met during dental school, invited them to stay with him while they were in Maui. That’s when Greg got the idea to ask Laurie if she wanted to get married while they were there! They stumbled across our company, Simple Maui Wedding, and were sold on the idea!

The beauty of Maui provided the perfect backdrop for this couple’s special day as they exchanged their vows on Lahaina Shores Beach. And Laurie’s dress stopped us in our tracks! (And Greg!) Her embroidered gown was breathtaking, perfectly complementing the stunning surroundings.
