Paula & Mike were absolutely radiant at their Maui Beach Elopement. They had the perfect combination of excitement, humor, and love. So they were a dream to work with!
Though they came to the beach alone to share their vows and pledge their love, they were supported around the globe by friends and family who appreciate them both as individuals and as a couple. We could really feel all that energy surrounding them as they wed on Maui’s welcoming shores.
Now we get to share some of their photos — Check out this beautiful Maui Elopement!
Reverend Kuya officiated Paula & Mike’s ceremony. He included traditional Hawaiian elements, like the blowing of the Pu (conch shell), a blessing over them (an oli), and the exchange of lei. He brought both humor and heartfelt sentiment to the wedding, and it honestly seemed like he had known Paula & Mike for years.
Paula surprised Mike by having an ukulele musician at the ceremony — he loved it. Chayce played the sweet mele (songs) and stuck around to chat with Mike, who plays ukulele in a band with his friends back home in Oregon.
After the ceremony, Paula & Mike took some portraits with Samantha from Karma Hill Photography. Keep scrolling to see the beautiful couple and the glowing sunset!
Paula & Mike are semi-retired and are proud parents and grandparents. Fate brought them together when they both decided to go out on a limb and make a Match.com profile. Love blossomed and ushered them into a happily ever after!
They enjoy cooking, entertaining, and wine tasting. They visit Hawaii quite often, but they usually are on Oahu. So Maui was a special vacation for these sweethearts, and they were enjoying every moment. The Maui Beach Elopement was just one part of their romantic getaway.
Paula & Mike have been together for eight years, so they shared many memories. We think the best is still ahead of them, though. As they stood together as newlyweds, looking off to the horizon, they saw a great future full of ever-growing love and joy. We’re so glad we got to be a part of this core memory!
Congratulations, Paula & Mike! We wish you all the best and can’t wait to see you in Maui again soon!
