When two busy doctors tie the knot, a relaxed celebration is the name of the game. And that's where a tropical destination wedding came in. They brought on the amazingly talented Vows Wedding & Event Planning plus Mandy Grace Designs to omit any stress from the equation, and their Maui nuptials radiate with joy in every image by Erich McVey. Destination brides, this happy day is what it's all about.

From Vows Wedding & Event Planning... Then Seattle-based Kathleen and Aaron wanted to get away from the busy realities of their lives. Both are doctors and work around the clock, so planning sessions were often after the night shift at the hospital. Their love of nature and their yearning for a calm and relaxed day brought them to the magical island of Maui, Hawaii.

The vision for their day included these words and ideas: natural, eclectic, elegant with touches of modern, a warm and inviting dinner party vs. the typical wedding reception. We landed on a jewel tone color palette; bright reds, blues, purples and greens in both florals and greenery. The elegance was achieved with to-die-for vintage glass in the same hues, and nature’s presence with an ocean-like water color menu and napkins.

Our bride & groom, both vegetarians, are also foodies and wanted the reception to have a focus on elegant dining. The Chef at Andaz Ka’ana Kitchen known for being creative and using only fresh organic and local ingredients, treated vegetarians and meat eaters alike to an unforgettable four course meal. Relaxed, locally flavored music entertained all night while guest drank, ate and presented heartfelt toasts.

The surroundings that enveloped the couple, their families, and dear friends were the highlight of the day. The couple even snuck away from the reception for a few portraits during one of Maui's legendary sunsets.
