Oceanfront Unplugged Destination Wedding in Maui

This right here is my love letter to the lens of Wendy Laurel, because honestly that woman could point her camera in any which way and I would still write it off as pure poetry. So, you can only imagine the beauty that unravels when she’s behind the lens of an oceanfront celebration on the shores of Maui. It’s pretty paired with perfectly unplugged 90’s details and we’ve got it all in THE VAULT!

From Wendy LaurelDoes the Nineties bring back fun memories? Slinkies, slap bracelets, Pez candy, mixed tapes and aqua net were all present and accounted for. Bright colors and mohawks.. all of this fun was a great theme for Sabrina and Soda’s otherwise traditional destination wedding on Maui. The couple combined the classic timelessness of a traditional wedding style with the fun accessories from the 90’s.

Surrounded by family and friends from all over the world, the couple tied the knot on the shores of Maui with palm trees, ocean, and tradewinds. They danced the night away on the neon colored 90’s dance floor and had a great time taking photos with the 90’s accessories and all their friends.

From Wendy Laurel….Adam and Scott have been together a long time. They have a daughter together. And they are a family. But they weren’t able to get married where they live in Australia so they combined their wedding and honeymoon and headed to Maui for a lovely destination wedding easy for both of their families to attend (families from Australia and the mainland US). The day was filled with small personal and sentimental touches — a grandfather’s pocket watch, the rainbow shirt Scott was wearing when he first met Adam, their daughter in the wedding ceremony, readings from Scott’s Aunt and another from one of their best friends, a custom made cake topper.

From Wendy LaurelKim and Phil love Hawaii, so they wanted an elegant destination wedding that took full advantage of the sun and sea in Maui. They chose Olowalu Plantation House because of its unique historic plantation home and the chance to have a backyard type wedding and reception right at the oceanside.

The details of the wedding were filled with personal mementos — such as the sea fans as a nod to their time spent living in Grenada. The sea fans had calligraphy on them and were placed on the back of their dinner chairs with a “Dr.” and a “Mrs.” for the groom and bride. A glass bottle was filled with personal notes from the guests. She used custom embroidered handkerchiefs for personal messages for her mom, dad and her Groom. All wedding attendees received an Aloha canvas tote bag filled with Hawaiian goodies and a handwritten vintage postcard with Kim and Phils’ name and wedding date printed inside as a memento. The cake servers were handed down from Phil’s grandmother for a special cake cut. And of course, the custom cocktails served by Garnish were a hit.
