From The Bride…Being from the rainy state of Washington, I had always dreamed of a destination wedding. I fell head-over-heels for Maui from the first time I visited and knew it was the perfect spot to say ‘I do.’ After getting engaged, it didn’t take much convincing at all for my then fiance to agree to a wedding that would also be a vacation with our closest family and friends.
On our venue-scouting trip, we absolutely loved Merriman’s Restaurant which is situated on the incredibly beautiful Kapalua Bay. Their food was to die for, so it was the best of both worlds- the perfect venue that also happened to be an amazing caterer (best Caesar salad, pork sliders, and filet mignon you’ll ever have!). Once the venue was booked, all the other planning seemed to just fall into place.
I spent all the months leading up to the wedding browsing on Pinterest, searching Etsy for anything wedding-related, and checking Style Me Pretty and SMP Destination daily. My favorite SMP wedding was the color inspiration for our big day. Once I found Donna Morgan’s ‘Spearmint’ colored bridesmaid dresses, that guided a lot of the other choices. I found the perfect Sarah Jessica Parker shoes to wear that matched my bridesmaids’ dresses, and I even had SJP herself sign them while she was in Seattle. I envisioned the beautiful blue-green color with different shades of pink peonies, garden roses, and cymbidium orchids. I wanted our wedding to be bright, fun, and whimsical and chose chevron details to go along with the bright color palette.
We also wanted a lot of personal touches to our wedding. We had custom welcome totes designed by an Etsy seller and filled them with Maui goodies to give our guests as they arrived on the island. I found the cutest cake toppers on Etsy and had one personalized for us- a nurse and a sheriff’s deputy. I also found a bouquet charm on Etsy, the perfect way to incorporate my grandparents who had both passed away in the last year and a half. Our guestbook, also found on Etsy (big surprise, right?), gave a nod toward our home state as well as where our nuptials took place.
The day-of really did go by just as fast as everyone says it does. I was so glad we had planned a day-after Trash-The-Dress session with our photographer. That way we were able to relax a little about getting certain shots and just enjoy more time with family and friends during cocktail hour. Overall, our wedding week was a blur of happiness and turned out everything we ever wanted and more. And now we have the perfect excuse to always go back and visit Maui!
