I want to marry this wedding. Like jump on a plane tomorrow and marry this wedding. Set amidst the backdrop of Maui’s gooooorgeous beaches, this couple simply wanted to capture the laid back but elegant spirit of the island and allow the natural beauty of the day to take center stage. And with Gina Meola on hand to capture every last postcard worthy moment and Belle Destination behind the design wheel, they did just that….and so much more.

From Gina of Gina Meola Photography… Maui was the ideal halfway point for guests coming in from all parts of the world. Kristine, originally from New York, had moved to Tokyo, where she met and fell in love with precious Hisashi. The two still live in Japan and wanted their day to reflect the relaxed, beautiful love they share. Lena and Jane of Belle Destination Events did a phenomenal job making Kristine’s dreams come true! Anyone with a history planning a destination wedding knows the level of uncertainty you can run into, but these ladies created an exceptional experience for this destination couple.
Kristine incorporated ribbons, fabrics, silks and decor from artists across the globe. The warm, delicate color scheme fit perfectly with the feel of their day. The gentle fabrics flowed easily with the ocean breeze, and the choice of food was superb. Her creativity worked itself into the ribbon table runner that Belle Destination put together piece by piece. This was truly a wedding of bliss and beauty, with the most loving, genuine group of people.
