From the Bride:  Marc and I chose to have a destination wedding because we wanted to get married in a beautiful location, surrounded by our closest friends and family. As is almost any day in Hawaii, the weather was sunny and beautiful which made for the most gorgeous back drop for our special day. We broke tradition and spent the morning of our wedding getting coffee and spending time together walking along the beach in Wailea. It was a great way to spend a little time together to reflect on the day to come, before family and guests arrived.

My sister and two of my best friends from Optometry school stood up as bridesmaids.  The ceremony was a
combination of both traditional and Hawaiian elements; we did a lei exchange prior to exchanging vows, we also performed a sand ceremony rather than lighting a unity candle due to the outdoor setting. The vase from the sand ceremony now has a place of honor in our living room, as a reminder of our vows.

After the ceremony, the wedding guests were treated to delicious appetizers and cocktails while we left with our
photographer, Joanna Tano, and headed to Po’olenalena Beach to take some postceremony photos. We could not have been more fortunate to have found one of the most beautiful beaches in Maui to be nearly deserted during our photo session.

We joined our guests back at Gannon’s restaurant for an evening of celebration. The food was spectacular! We are still receiving compliments on the food a year and a half later! One of the things that made our wedding and reception so special was that with such a small guest list we were able to spend quality time with everyone. We were so touched at the time and money our guests spent to celebrate our wedding with us. It is a day that we will truly never forget.
