We had the best time being part of Mariah and Derek’s Maui Destination Wedding! And how could we not, they seriously are such a fun couple! We especially love how they arrived together, but got creative so Derek wouldn’t see Mariah before it was time. He drove while she sat in the back seat holding up a beach towel, so he wouldn’t peek at her throughout the drive! How clever is that?! Derek also told us that while they got ready, he had his eyes closed so he wouldn’t see her in her dress too soon. Talk about dedication! Our bride seriously did such a good job hiding her dress, especially considering she had it for 6 months!
Their ceremony started while the evening was softly lit by rainclouds and it drizzled all the way up until their couples portraits. After that, it was beautiful and there wasn’t a drop of rain! In fact, their sunset was breathtaking because the sun ended up showing it’s golden hour glow for a few minutes just before it set. Which left Mariah and Derek extremely happy because all they wanted was just a little sun on their Maui Destination Wedding day, and they got that and more! Thank you so much, Mariah and Derek, for sharing this truly incredible occasion with Simple Maui Wedding. We wish you both all the best on the journey ahead. Congratulations and Warm Aloha!
