Practically Disney – Stephanie & Juan’s Micro Wedding in Maui

March 7, 2021

Stephanie and Juan’s Micro Wedding in Maui was flooded with sunshine and sunny smiles. The golden sands of Poʻolenalena gave way to a glistening aquamarine sea with the wild greenery swaying the backdrop. Engaged for two years, and tired of waiting out COVID restrictions, Stephanie and Juan said “I do” to Maui and brought their children with them for a wedding dreams are made of!

The Micro Wedding in Maui Location

Hailing from Seattle, Stephanie and Juan dreamed of marrying somewhere warm and replacing the gray skies with vibrant hues of gold. Maui did not disappoint. Located on the southside, Poʻolenalena rarely sees rain and with a western facing shore, offers unparalleled sunsets. Just look at that lighting! Although a lot of that glow is a credit to our beautiful couple!

Our Couples Story

Stephanie and Juan’s marriage blends two amazing families together. Present with them on the shore, Stephanie’s three sons will join Juan and his daughter. It’s a happily ever after, and kind of makes us think about Disney stories. Although maybe after meeting this spectacular family, we have Disney on the mind. Stephanie and her sons LOVE all things Disney and even managed to convert Juan and Jessica, which was a wonderful thing, considering how Juan proposed…

How He Proposed

Juan had it all meticulously planned out, he would propose in front of the castle during their Disneyland trip. Unfortunately, the castle was under construction and covered with scaffolding and tarps. Juan was speechless. Okay, he wasn’t speechless. He just kept saying over and over again, “The castle is CLOSED?!” With his plans pulled out from under him, Juan waited patiently until the following day to pop the question in front of the fountain in the Disney California Adventure. And, of course, it was pouring rain. Yet the rain couldn’t have mattered less to Stephanie! She said yes!
