With their closest family in attendance and the rolling waves of Ironwoods setting the stage, Sharon & Michael’s Maui beach elopement was an event to remember! And, of course, the couple was sure to include their “best girl” in the ceremony.
As a specially trained guide dog, Nav can perform a variety of intricate tasks… including bearing the couple’s wedding rings! We always love when couples interweave personal touches within their ceremony. It’s a great way to celebrate unique lifestyles and add that extra “wow” element. And precious Nav (with a ring pouch attached to her collar) not only added that “wow” but also the “aww!”
Reverend Peter Dagupion officiated the wedding, enriching the affair with sacred Hawaiian ceremonial traditions. It’s hard to summarize the intensely moving experience of being enveloped in the rich, tonal vibrations of Hawaiian chants and the blowing of the pu (conch shell). What a suiting way to solidify such such a joyous union!
We adored how Sharon’s gown beautifully mirrored the splashes of the sea. With a flowing fit that waved in the breeze and a sprinkling of gems that glimmered in the light of the late afternoon, Sharon evoked visions of a water nymph adorned in the foam of the tide.
Later, the couple slipped away after the ceremony for some dramatic yet intimate couple’s portraits atop the cliffside of Ironwoods. Few beach wedding locations are as striking. With the roaring ocean and Lānaʻi fading into the background, these captures are absolutely unforgettable!
