Stephanie & Michael had a beautiful Maluaka Beach wedding last week! This swoon-worthy couple traveled from Utah to elope on this scenic shoreline, and we’re so glad they did.

Stephanie donned a show-stopping gown, and you have got to see Michael’s reaction when he first sees her in it! Thankfully, Karma Hill Photography was there to capture each priceless moment, and today we’re sharing some of our favorite images.

Check out Stephanie & Michael’s wedding photo sneak peek below!

Our Fabulous Fate

Reverend Richardo officiated Stephanie & Michael’s Hawaiian-style ceremony. He brought humor and emotion to the service, which was a perfect fit for them. They’re a lively and passionate couple, drawn to each other more and more as the years go by.

They met through work. It wasn’t a joyful or romantic place, but their relationship is. So good things can come from drab places.

Their Maluaka Beach Wedding was anything but drab. They brought so much personality and style and were all smiles as they became husband and wife.

Their personal vows had us all laughing and crying, and their wave of excitement washed over all of us when Richardo finally pronounced them married!

They included traditions from the Hawaiian Islands, like a lei exchange and oli aloha.

A Maluaka Beach Wedding for a Maui-Loving Couple

Maui is a special place for Stephanie & Michael. Their wedding trip was their seventh Maui vacation, so it really is a second home for them.

They got engaged nearby at Makena State park and knew they wanted an elopement that was true to them and their adventurous spirits. So they returned to our island for a beautiful, unique, and carefree Hawaii wedding at South Maluaka Beach.

We loved spending this dreamy evening with Stephanie & Michael. And now that they’ve returned home to their fur babies Buddha & Piper, they still have lots to look forward to: settling into their married life, reliving their wedding through their photos, and sharing their exciting elopement story with all their friends and family.

Maui is home to many beautiful wedding venues for a Destination Wedding, and a simple Maluaka Beach Wedding was a stunning choice for Stephanie & Michael. This Wailea beach park has golden white sand and great sunset views!

Maluaka Beach has a grassy area with picnic tables, lava rock and dramatic trees. We love getting portraits in this spot in addition to the ones we get on the sandy beach.
