Many Reasons to Smile – Miranda & DJ’s Maui Beach Elopement

July 14, 2021


Because they got engaged IN the ocean, Miranda and DJ figured they should get married at the ocean! And what better reason to have a Maui Beach Elopement? The morning at Ironwoods glistened in brilliant shades of aquamarine and sapphire, and with their three beautiful children celebrating beside them, it was the perfect way to tie the knot and step into marriage.

The Maui Beach Elopement

For their Maui Beach Elopement, Miranda and DJ chose a morning ceremony. The tropical brilliance of an early ceremony is take-your-breath-away lovely. Just look at that glowing ocean… and take a look at that glowing bride and groom! We loved how Miranda and DJ wore shades to complement the Hawaiian shore.

Before the ceremony began, our couple tossed flowers into the ocean to honor their parents. It was a beautiful and touching moment.

After they promised their vows and unified their marriage, Miranda and DJ’s sweet babies joined them for a toast of apple cider right there on the beach! There were smiles and cheers (and giggles) all around!

Our Couple’s Story

Miranda and DJ first crossed paths in college, but it wasn’t until 2014 when DJ reached out on Instagram and the romance began. After becoming official in 2015, it was a fast track to love! They were blessed with their first son in 2016 and were engaged in 2019. DJ popped the big question in Cozumel, Mexico while they were swimming in the ocean by the dock. And now they’ve come full circle, saying their “I do’s” with the ocean sprays on their shoulders!
