Growing up Rhea’s family came to Hawaii every year, and this couple chose to have a Venue Wedding in Maui because it is her favorite island! During the planning process, Rhea and Shane described their wedding as “simple, fun with good music, family and friends.” We love that they wanted to create an evening that would not only be beautiful but would also be enjoyable for them and their wedding guests. It was all about having a good time! And we’re confident this is an evening none of them will ever forget!
Our bride and groom met in middle school and were actually high school sweethearts! And our personal favorite part of the evening was getting to hear their vows. They both mentioned they’ve been through so much together throughout the years and they’ve always stood by each other’s side!
Shane went first to recite his vows and had several pages worth of vows written in a yellow-cover notebook. One thing he said that made everyone cry was, “Rhea, you don’t know this, but the day before I asked you out for the first time in middle school, I couldn’t sleep. I was so nervous because not only did I want you to be my girlfriend, but I knew in my heart that I already wanted to marry you.” Cue all the tears!
But don’t worry, there was lots of laughter too! In fact, after the ceremony, our newlyweds were ready to head to the beach for wedding portraits and our sister company told us they all couldn’t stop laughing! They even took boomerangs and slomo videos so they could have something to remember the night before getting their wedding photos. And here they are, and we are absolutely obsessed!
Thank you, Rhea and Shane, for letting us celebrate with you at your Maui Venue Wedding. We loved getting to know you both and wish you all the best on the journey ahead! Congratulations and Warm Aloha!
