Rustic Romance – Michelle & John’s Maui Venue Wedding

November 6, 2020


Michelle & John were forced to just go with the flow this year! Like so many other couples their wedding plans had to be changed many times due to Covid. It’s funny though how sometimes things come together and you realize they are just as they should be. Having a small, intimate Maui Venue Wedding turned out perfect for these two. They were married in a beautiful ceremony surrounded by swaying palms and their closest family and friends.

The Rustic Hawaiian Ruins are our newest venue here on Maui. They offer a lush tropical setting in the historic ruins of the Kilohani Church. This is the perfect spot to say “I do” if you have over 8 guests. Beach weddings are currently restricted to 10 people total including vendors, but a private venue offers more flexibility.

A butterfly fluttered around them during the ceremony. Michelle felt that it was a sign from her grandmother being their for their special moment.

Michelle & John still hope to have a big wedding at home in 2021, but just in case that doesn’t work out, they’ve at least had a great wedding here in Hawaii!

John proposed to Michelle with the help of a sweet puppy last December. The puppy had a collar around it’s neck that read “Will you marry me?” Well played John!! A puppy is definitely the way to a woman’s heart!!
