When I see the names Wendy Laurel and Opihi Love pop up on our submissions page, I just know a heaping dose of happiness is about to be delivered to my desktop. Today’s elopement was no exception. Complete with pineapples, a “Pu” (a.k.a. conch shell ceremony) and the prettiest petals, this guest-less fete packs a punch.
From Wendy Laurel… Elopements are really my favorite sort of wedding. I love them because the couple is usually so emotional and intimate during the ceremony. This couple decided to take their elopement to the next level. Even though it just the two of them, they choose to style their elopement to the hilt. It all happened at the newest wedding venue on Maui – the new Steeple House with a team of some of the best vendors on Maui. The getting ready happened at the Steeple House in their completely redone interior of a vintage plantation style church in Kapalua. The ceremony was on the Steeple House lawn with a great view over the Pacific ocean and the cliffs of West Maui. A short walk to the beach for their portraits followed. It was a crazy beautiful day filled with emotion.
