From Wendy Laurel… This wedding inspiration was inspired by the overgrown pineapple fields on the West Side of Maui. The fields haven’t been farmed in over 5 years now and they are overgrown and wild and beautiful. We wanted to incorporate that wildness into Simply by Jes’s floral bouquet and the feel of the shoot. The sun coming up over the West Maui Mountains is gorgeous in the morning. We wanted a feel of spring time renewal, fresh sunshine, wild fields and the joy that comes from that setting.

From the Bride…As avid travelers, Peter and I thought that a destination wedding with our closest friends and family would be the perfect way to get married. We chose Maui for its natural beauty, laid back vibe and ease of travel for our family. From the moment we stepped into Haiku Mill, we knew it was the perfect place to start the first day of our lives together. There was something so effortlessly romantic and beautiful about its ivy covered walls and twinkling chandeliers. Even without any flowers or decoration, the place was magical.
On the morning of the wedding, although we received a short blessing of rain, the sun soon started to shine, and the Mill looked absolutely stunning. From the garden roses and orchids arranged by Teresa Sena to the striking rustic chandeliers – the day promised to be more than we could have ever expected. Getting ready in the bridal suite with Jessica and my mom was a wonderful treat on the morning of the wedding. Ryan and Ryan, our stylish photographers, were just as excited to be at the Mill with us and captured our special moments throughout the day. Stephanie from Garnish, welcomed us with our delicious signature drink, the Braveheart; and our favorite music serenaded us throughout the night. Being foodies, we were also impressed by Maui Executive Catering and their impeccable service. Peter and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day and we reveled in every moment. It was all this bride could have ever asked for – marrying my one true love surrounded by everyone who loved and cared about us.

As far as I’m concerned, any wedding at the Haiku Mill is going to hit the very top of the romance scale, but when you toss in blooms from Mandy Grace and send Anna Kim Photography in to capture it all? It’s not even fair how beautiful it is.
From the photographer… These two lovebirds decided to have a small, intimate wedding in the lush grounds of the Haiku Mill. They invited their closest friends and family to celebrate their wedding. Even their minister traveled from Minnesota to marry the two of them.
The florals were designed by Mandy Grace Designs to give the wedding setting a dreamy, garden look and feel.
