Instant Connection – Rachel & Michael’s Maui Elopement

February 23, 2021


Rachel & Michael’s initial wedding plan didn’t include a Maui elopement. They originally planned to get married in their home state of Minnesota. With the pandemic all around them and many family members being too high-risk to attend a wedding they decided an elopement in Maui was sounding pretty amazing!! We couldn’t agree more. There will be many years to come where you can celebrate with friends and family but this day, was just for you two!!

How Did They Meet?

Rachel & Michael had an instant connection when they first met. Like so many other couples they met in the world of online dating. They shared many messages and talks on the phone and both knew that there was something there. Once they finally were able to meet in person they were never again apart!

They have enjoyed many firsts together like their first vacation, their first puppy, who is a Siberian Husky named Captain, their first (and hopefully only) pandemic! lol! These two have really created a special bond and it means the world to us that they continued their story on the beaches of Maui.
