From the Bride…Josh and his father own Maui Olive Company so most of our décor came from tree clippings at the orchard. We also used olive oil from the harvest and some delicious lilikoi butter his father makes as our reception gifts. Josh and I brined olives a few months before the wedding and jarred them, leaving them on the tables for people to nosh on or take with them. Our sign (arrows pointing to ceremony, reception, babysitting, bar, restrooms etc) was made by Josh’s dad and painted by our brother and his wife.
Pick a reasonable day prior to the wedding and decide look…whatever isn’t finished isn’t finished – and let it go. No one will be the wiser. It isn’t worth stressing or running around finishing last minute errands once your friends and family arrive. We set up a couple group events people could opt to attend (private sunset sail and a luau). Gave us a chance to see people and also a chance for our guests to meet one another before the wedding.
Give yourself at least 10-15 minutes for some alone time before the ceremony begins. And of course…savor every minute of your big day because it is going to fly. Take time to slow down certain moments and soak them in. HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!

From Wendy Laurel… Heidi and Josh came from Minnesota for their “#mauisota” wedding (as they hashtagged it). These guys love to travel, to drink wine, to eat gelato and explore. A destination wedding was the perfect wedding day for them and their friends and family. I loved Heidi’s style and especially loved her wedding dress and the lace sleeves — so beautiful. They incorporated the travel theme into their wedding invitations and the guest gifts were gorgeous leather luggage tags. Of course, of all their adventures, they both agree that Love is the Greatest Adventure of All.
