Lona and James’s Elopement in Maui had us all dancing with joy! Celebrating five years together, Lona and James tied the knot against a pristine ocean backdrop with the powder-soft sands of Po’olenalena Beach beneath their feet. The clear sky gave way to a sunset of bursting hues in gold and tangerine, as if the island were sending its fondest blessing.
The Elopement on Maui took place on the shore of Po’olenalena, with Kahu Euta beginning the ceremony with the traditional Hawaiian conch shell. From the moment Lona stepped on the sand, we knew the day would be filled with joy and that magic spark of eternal love. Wearing a smile from ear to ear, James could not look away.
It’s little wonder why. Draped in a jewel-encrusted gown with casual pleating with a beachy plait that perfectly framed her glowing face, Lona was simply stunning. James was on cloud nine, just like the day Lona sent him a text asking him out for that first cup of coffee. He still has the video of his reaction, howling with delight as he reads it!
Lona and James work together in the mortgage business. He has three kids, who Lona loves and adores! Their wedding marks five years together, or as Lona says “The best five of my life <3” Together they enjoy being active, they even built a house together!
Lona and James met at a UNR football game, both acting as company for two friends who were interested in each other. Turns out, their friends weren’t the only ones with chemistry! Lona and James fell in love and moved in together three months later. Two years following, at their favorite restaurant, James got down on one knee and popped the big question. Lona burst into happy tears and the restaurant-goers burst into applause! The rest of their story is right here on our blog!
Mahalo, Lona and James, for trusting us with your elopement in Maui. It was a gorgeous day, and you were a joy to work with. We wish you all the best in the years ahead!
