When I laid eyes on this Maui stunner sent over by Wendy Laurel it was love at first sight. And then to find out the oceanside celebration was a small + totally intimate gathering of the couple’s nearest and dearest? My wedding-loving heart skipped a beat. Lovelies, set aside your afternoon…there is some serious beauty to be seen in the full gallery.

From Wendy LaurelClaire and Dan got married with just a few family members on Maui. Dan’s father did the ceremony and it was such an intimate and special occasion. He had their written vows in his notebook, and the whole family was together on the beach. Makena Cove is one of the most popular beaches on Maui for weddings. Its tiny, just a small cove, but it’s gorgeous with black rocks and pounding waves surrounded by palm trees.
