We are excited to share Leslie and Frank’s dreamy Maui elopement celebrating their family journey! From their initial meeting in the aerospace industry to the birth of their son, their beautiful celebration captures the essence of their happiness and the beginning of their new chapter.

Hailing from the picturesque Orange County/LA area in California, Leslie and Frank first crossed paths eight years ago. Their shared passion for aerospace brought them together as fate would have it, igniting a connection that would withstand life’s trials. After five years of dating bliss, Frank proposed during a romantic trip to Miami, with just the two of them basking in the sun-kissed beaches. Their engagement lasted three years, marked by unforeseen circumstances such as the global pandemic and the arrival of their adorable son, who is now 15 months old. It was so sweet to see their son join them on their big day, as you’ll see below!

A Family Affair

With their hearts set on a beachfront wedding, Leslie and Frank decided to elope in Maui, just the three of them. Hawaii became their first big trip as a family, so they thought it would be a perfect opportunity to tie the knot finally! Southside Beach, one of our favorite locations, served as the ideal backdrop for their dreamy ceremony. Their elegant Maui elopement began their next chapter as a family, too! Their love and warmth were palpable all around the sunkissed beach. The inclusion of their son participating in his little suspenders and bowtie added an extra touch of sweetness to the family-oriented celebration!
