“Wish You Were Here”

Mercedes & Alex kept the guest count small for their Maui Beach wedding. It was their children and granddaughter who attended in person. But they were also supported by friends and family from all over.

They wanted to include all their loved ones in their special day, so they booked our “Wish You Were Here” elopement option, which recorded their ceremony for same-day streaming. What a sweet way to ensure your ceremony stretches beyond Maui’s shoreline!

A Hawaiian Inspired Ceremony for a Maui Beach Wedding

Reverend Richardo officiated such a warm and heartfelt ceremony for Mercedes & Alex. He included Hawaiian-inspired traditions, like a lei exchange chant. We could feel the embrace of the island as he offered a blessing over them, and their vows were so sweet.

Small beach weddings like this one allow us to get to know the couple, learn about their story, and understand their journey to this moment. It makes it all that much sweeter when they receive their final blessing and share that first kiss as husband & wife.

Toes in the Sand, Sun on our Shoulders, Love in our Hearts

After the ceremony, Mercedes & Alex took some photos with their kids. Their granddaughter Hazel was ready to steal the show (and our hearts!). We’re so glad she got to be a part of their wedding, as we know it made the moment and its memories that much sweeter.

Next, it was time for the newlyweds to get romantic portraits around the beach. Polo Beach is such a pretty spot. We got pictures with palm trees, lava rocks, emerald green shrubbery, and of course, that dreamy late afternoon glow!

This was such a fun Maui Beach Wedding, and we’re so grateful to be a part of it. Now we get to relive the excitement again and again by looking at these stunning photos!
