“From the blue sky and ocean, to the golden sun
and vibrant palm trees, Hawaii was everywhere“
Rich hues of blue reflect the Groom’s career
in the Navy and their shared love of the sea
From Wendy Laurel…The bride and groom are Kate and Chris who are both originally from Alaska. Chris is in the Navy and the couple lives here on Oahu now. Chris has a love of naval architecture and Kate is a talented artist. Their wedding details and style reflected all these elements.
Kate chose rich blues for the color of her wedding to reflect the Navy and their shared love of the sea. Bright and deep colored florals accented the hand dyed muslim blue tablecloths. Chris’s love for naval architecture was shown off in the naval blue prints included in the invitation suite and hung at the reception. Kate’s artistic talents created the hand drawn invitations, table favors, table numbering, and signs throughout the reception. Touches of Alaska were included as well such as Kate’s Dad’s antlers from hunting in Alaska. And of course Hawaii was everywhere from the blue sky and ocean to the golden sun and the vibrant palm trees.

From Photographs by Caileigh…Colin and Amy opted for an intimate destination wedding on the shores of Maui. They brought along their closest family and friends from Toronto, with some guests even flying in from Hong Kong to celebrate with them!
Their wedding at the Andaz Maui at Wailea had the best kind of energy. Start to finish it was full of carefree moments and lots of breathing room for Colin and Amy to really take it all in and enjoy every second. At intimate weddings, there’s also a sense of real focus and care from each guest. I love that their guests were able to share stories over dinner and had so many laughs from the door games to the late night sparklers and dancing. Their chandelier-lit reception under the stars was definitely one for the books.

If you thought a bit of rain could ruin a wedding day, you better think again because these two are proving otherwise. Photographed by Trish Barker, this Maui “I do” turned out crazy romantic – umbrellas and all.

From Trish Barker Photography…What to do if it rains on your wedding? Have an amazing wedding anyways.
Mallory and Derick came to Maui to get married next to the ocean. And as they watched the skies open up on them as their ceremony was about to start, they decided they were going to have their dream wedding; rain or shine. And they were all smiles the whole time, despite being poured on. And just as it was time for the sun to go down, the clouds gave way to the most amazing light, and their romantic photos came to life.
It just goes to show that you can plan and plan and plan, but things may not always go the way you intend. And sometimes, that’s for the better…
