Susan and Clayton wanted to do something special when they got married! Once their friend recommended they tie the knot in Maui — they knew they’d found the perfect solution. Our beautiful couple’s Hawaii beach elopement is relaxed, simple, and dreamy! Most importantly, they made their first time in the aloha state unforgettable!

Our lovely couple arrived at the shoreline together. Susan looked gorgeous in her chic and airy gown from Garnet and Grace. Then Clayton’s black Calvin Klein suit was sharp and sophisticated! Above all, we adore how our groom’s boutonniere pairs perfectly with our bride’s Rustic Hawaiian Bouquet from Dellables. Both floral arrangements add a touch of soft colors to their attire!

The Enchanting Hawaii Beach Elopement

Lahaina Shores Beach set a romantic ambiance for this sunset affair! The blue sky was clear of clouds, so the setting sun left a warm glow on the shore. Surrounding our charming couple are lofty palm trees, foamy azure waves, and beige sand. Then, once the sun fully set, an array of pastel hues painted the sky! We couldn’t have asked for a more dreamy and intimate scene for this event.

Our Couple’s Story

Susan and Clayton’s story began when they met one another online. However, they attended the same high school long before they even met! Then, when the time was right, Clayton proposed to Susan in San Francisco at Pier 7. When this stunning couple got engaged, it was a complete surprise, and right before Clayton had to leave for his orders in Iraq.

Currently, our radiant newlyweds live in the Bay Area in California! Clayton is an avid PC gamer, while Susan is a crafter and lash artist. This delightful duo has two adorable cats, and they absolutely love them! Most importantly, you can find them going to the movies, visiting new places, or trying restaurants in their free time! We’re glad one destination they explored was Maui for their Hawaii beach elopement!
