Although Philip and Rachael had no guests in attendance, they ensured their friends and family could experience this occasion. Gaucho Visuals was the videographer, and they recorded this event effortlessly. Now all of our gorgeous couple’s loved ones can celebrate with them!

The Peaceful Hawaii Beach Elopement

This delightful duo came to the sandy shores separately. First to arrive was Philip! Our groom looked sharp in his navy suit — his attire will pair perfectly with his deep green maile lei. Next was Rachael, and she made a graceful entrance onto the beach. Rachael makes an exquisite bride; her gown is elegant, and styling by Simply Beauty Maui is chic! Above all, we like how graciously her vibrant bouquet and flower crown from Dellables complements her and Philip’s sophisticated outfits!

Our Couple’s Story

Rachael and Philip’s story began when they met at the University of Colorado in Boulder in 2007. Then in 2016, they got engaged in the Gardens of Eze in Southern France! Currently, our charming couple lives in Salt Lake City, Utah. You can find them enjoying the outdoors or exploring the world together in their free time! Lastly, our lovely couple decided to elope in Maui because they wanted this event to reflect their adventurous spirit! Rachael and Philip wanted to feel the same excitement they have whenever they visit a new destination.

Ironwoods Beach and its breathtaking backdrops created a dreamy ambiance for this evening! The ivory sand, foamy sapphire waves, and dramatic lava rocks are a few of our favorite landscapes. Then, as the sun continued to set, a spectrum of delicate shades decorated the sky. These enchanting hues paired with the epic cliffs made a fairytale background for these pictures!
