For this breathtaking Maui Elopement, Alice & Matthew said “I do” with the aqua glimmers and tropical greenery of Southside Beach setting the stage. Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, this was the couple’s first trip to Maui–and what a first it was!
Alice and Matthew embarked on their Hawaiian adventure with a trip to the Big Island. Famous for its lush rainforests, the Big Island receives upwards of 10 feet of rain a year … and this year was no exception. The couple had to extend their stay on the Big Island an additional 24 hours due to the weather and worried their Maui wedding would be greeted with a similar downpour … But their special day was graced with clear skies and enchanting panoramic views!
The tender love between this couple blew us away. From their soft and intimate gazes to the touching moment when Matthew delicately wiped tears from his bride’s cheek … we were absolutely enchanted by their love story.
In graceful simplicity, Alice kept her jewelry to a minimum, wearing only a golden statement necklace to highlight her natural beauty.
Matthew presented her with the stunning piece during their stay on the Big Island … and we think it’s perfectly suited for his bride. The sacred hihimanu (also known as Hawaiian ray) means “magnificent” or “elegant bird” and is used to describe a woman filled with grace and otherworldly beauty. And looking at these captures, it’s abundantly clear that Alice is its picture-perfect embodiment …
Alice and Matthew’s Special Day ended in an exquisite sunset of rose and plum. It’s said that purple symbolizes perfection … and looking at this beautiful couple, we’d have to agree.
Mahalo nui loa, Alice & Matthew for selecting us to help plan your Maui Elopement. We wish you many more perfect days in the years to come!
