I know that I go a little bride-gaga on the site every now and then (okay, all the time) and it’s rare that the groom gets nearly as much gushing as he should. I know, I’m working it. But I’m failing miserably. Yes, the groom is dreamy and handsome and I’m sure he’s amazing. And based on the total catch of a bride he got, he’s probably really, really wonderful. But once again, I can’t stop staring at the women behind this beautiful wedding. The bride that is basically a model, the bridesmaid that is absolute cuteness and the mothers who have redefined the word elegance for me. And with a backdrop like the Maui perfection that Jill LaFleur created and photographs that Wendy Laurel snapped, this little fete is one that has quickly climbed to the top of my list.

From Wendy Laurel Photography…A beautiful Maui wedding – a blend of traditional, Korean, and Island styles. The bride and groom are both Korean. The bride wore a beautiful traditional dress by Alma Novia at the ceremony, but both mother’s wore colorful and bright Korean traditional dresses. The couple was married at Gannon’s Restaurant in Wailea. The next day, the bride donned her Korean dress as well as her wedding gown and the couple did photos in the funky town of Paia, on nearby cliffs and sugarcane fields.
From the Bride…I chose Maui because we both wanted an intimate wedding far away from home. Also, both of our parents have never been to Hawaii so we wanted them to experience it. Of course it was everyone else’s first time too! We chose Maui because it is the most romantic Hawaiian island in my opinion. The most important thing for me was that everyone had a memorable experience, a wedding in paradise! A wedding that you think about for a long long time.
