Ian & Michelle ~ Makena Cove Wedding

I few weeks ago I met Ian & Michelle. The day I met them they were excited, nervous & couldn’t wait for what was to come. When I arrived Michelle was finishing up with hair & makeup and looked amazing! Mira did a wonderful job on both. Before she put on her wedding gown she took a moment to write a card to her husband to be, Ian. She tried not to cry but we could see the emotion in her face as she wrote…it was so sweet.

We delivered the note &  gift to Ian a bit later.. he seemed very calm & collected but I am sure he had warm fuzzies inside =) Michelle put on her stunning gown, pink shoes and beautiful jewelry and we headed out for their “First Look ” photos.. Ian calmly waited as Michelle approached from behind & tapped him on the shoulder.. It was such a special moment.

We headed to Makena Cove for some portraits & a sunset ceremony. The wind had calmed and the sun was out. It was a beautiful evening. Ian & Michelle said their I Do’s as a small group of family and friends looked on. A few tears of joy were shed as vows were said. The love was felt by all of us who shared in their day. Deanne from Precious Maui Weddings did a great job coordinating the event.

After the ceremony we stayed for some sunset portraits.. the sky was amazing, the nerves were calmed, husband & wife looked gorgeous in the sunset. All in all a perfect day.

The next morning we met up at Po’olenalena Beach for a super fun Trash the Dress Session. Ian & Michelle rode up on a scooter..it was so cute! The morning was warm, blue & lovely! I am so happy that I could be there to capture these memories for Ian & Michelle. Thanks you two for spending 2 days with us! Congratulations! I wish you many more adventures and tons of laughter as husband and wife. Much thanks to Joanna Tano for helping me and capturing amazing images both days..

A few of my favorites pics from both days…
