Melanie and Taylor made some of their fondest memories in Hawaii! For them, this destination is a gorgeous and sacred place they always feel relaxed when visiting. Their beach wedding in Maui was perfect: intimate, romantic, and picturesque. Continue scrolling to see for yourself!
Taylor and the eight wedding guests arrived at the shoreline first. Then, when the time was right, Melanie walked down the sand with her father by her side. We love how Karma Hill Photography effortlessly captured the first looks between our bride and groom. While everyone was admiring our bride’s beauty — they photographed the adoration on Taylor’s face!
Maluaka Beach set the scene for this occasion! The sun’s enchanting golden hour was setting in, and the blue sky was clear of clouds. Behind our couple was a cerulean ocean with dramatic lava rock formations, creating a breathtaking backdrop! We found a secluded corner on the shore for this event. It was ideal because all the guests spread out and had a magnificent view of the ceremony! As the sun continued to set, its vibrant rays added a dreamy glow to this South Maui spot!
Melanie is a touring bass player in the Boise, ID area. In 2015, Taylor first met Melanie at one of her shows in downtown Boise. When the concert was over, he approached her at the merchandise booth, and they chatted for a while! They had their first date on August 5, 2015! Then, on May 17, 2021, Taylor proposed on the patio of their favorite Mexican spot with the soft sunset above them. It was just like their Maui beach wedding: low-key, sweet, and simple!
Our lovely couple dressed flawlessly for their special day! Taylor is handsome in his navy blue suit, and we adore how bohemian our bride looks! Melanie’s lace gown is ethereal, the updo is timeless, and makeup is natural. Overall, Melanie’s chic outfit and Taylor’s stylish attire pair together flawlessly!
Congratulations, Melanie and Taylor! Thank you for letting us be part of your special day. We wish you a future full of quality time with your two cats and new travels!
