In November of 2019, Marissa and Gloria got engaged! After almost two years, in 2021, they planned a trip to Hawaii. When deciding where they wanted to get married, they couldn’t think of a better place to tie the knot! Above all, their Maui elopement was intimate and romantic.

Po’olenalena Beach set the scene for this event, and the sweeping landscapes created a stunning backdrop! Surrounding our lovely couple are lofty palm trees, striking lava rocks, and foamy cerulean waves. Although there were silky clouds above them — they enhanced the dreamy ambiance. Then, as the sun sets on the horizon, you’ll see a spectrum of pastel hues painting the sky! We couldn’t have asked for a more magical background for this elopement!

Why We Adore Their Maui Elopement

Marissa and Gloria’s special day is relaxing, simple, and beautiful. On the days leading up to this event, our charming couple was full of nothing but excitement and love! Our brides arrived at the shore together — both wearing elegant attire. You can see how flawlessly their chic outfits pair with their white flower leis. Most importantly, their matching Rustic Hawaiian Bouquets by Dellables added the perfect touch of soft shades to their looks!

Our Couple’s Story

Our gorgeous couple met one another on the first day of their new job with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. They instantly clicked during their four months at the academy. Since then, they’ve been inseparable! In 2019, they got engaged in Houston, Texas. Currently, they’ve been together for six years! They’re both U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers stationed in South Texas. When they’re not working, you can find them traveling and trying different foods. We hope they got to taste the delicious cuisine Hawaii has to offer after their Maui elopement!
