This shoot is unexpected in all the right ways. Skipping the beach and heading for the Haiku Mill, we get eyefuls of ocean, old-world charm, and a different perspective on Hawaiian aesthetics. I’m also kind of infatuated with the Reem Acra and Monique Lhuillier gowns Pacific Weddings Magazine chose to feature. You can see more Hawaiian eye candy from Rebecca Arthurs Photography here.

From Rebecca Arthurs Photography… The Haiku Mill is one of those places that when you leave, it feels like you woke up from a dream. We were blessed to shoot a bridal session there with styling by Pacific Weddings magazine. Tucked away in the hills of Maui, this beautiful old sugar mill is so peaceful and full of life. We wanted to capture the bride’s simple and natural beauty with nothing to distract from the setting. It was glorious to capture raw images without all the details and glitter that can sometimes overshadow the truth about beauty. The scenic images compliment our vision of raw beauty along Maui’s coast.

We’re big fans of the destination wedding here at SMP, and if you keep scrolling, you’ll see why. There’s the bluest ocean you could imagine reaching into the sunset, clean beaches with warm fair sand, surrounded by your closest family and friends. What’s not the love? And thanks to Wendy Laurel’s photographic handiwork, we get to relive the day in all its splendor.

From Wendy Laurel Photography… Nothing screams summer like a wedding in Hawaii. Somer and Ryan came from chilly Canada to celebrate their love with their best family and friends. Luckily they had a gorgeous Hawaiian day for it. Their color palette of light blues and pinks went right with the pretty natural colors of palm trees, oceans, and blue sky.

When the words ‘coral’, ‘beach’ and ‘Maui’ are all in the title, I instantly know it’s going to be a wedding after my own heart. And when it’s Wendy Laurel behind the lens? It’s all over. Thanks to White Orchid Wedding, it’s a tropical soiree filled to the brim with color (hello, gorg linens from La Tavola!). Find every pretty bit in the gallery.
From Wendy Laurel… These two met each other in college and have been friends for seven years. But they only started being a couple two years ago. Nothing better than best friends who find their way into love. Both Emelie and Alex come from famiies in Canada with restaurant backgrounds. They chose a destination wedding in Maui but wanted a beautiful dinner party. The table as well as the delicious food was centerpiece of their wedding. And relaxing under the stars, enjoying their meal and cocktails surrounded by their family and best of friends, was the perfect wedding plan for them in Hawaii.
