Marissa + Alex: Soft Pink Hawaiian Soirée by Joanna Tano Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Marissa and Alex describe their connection like ‘yin and yang,’ absolutely made for one another.  They both attended the University of Washington, but didn’t meet until a month before Alex was supposed to return to his home in Maui.  Knowing that they had discovered something very special,  Alex changed his plan to reside in Maui indefinitely, and returned to Seattle to be with Marissa after dating long distance for a year.  The pair envisioned an intimate celebration… simple, romantic, and understated.  Three words that make us swoon! (And we haven’t even mentioned the breathtaking setting at Haiku Mill in Maui).  You’ll have to just see for yourself!  Special thanks to Joanna Tano for sharing these effortlessly romantic wedding photos…

The day was blissfully warm, with sunlight streaming thru the glass canopy over the ceremony site. Drenched in lush tropical foliage, the property’s remarkable, repurposed sugar mill hosted the couple’s  ‘I dos’ amidst eighty loved ones.  The choice to celebrate at Haiku Mill was a serendipitous one; on the day-of, they discovered that Marissa’s great grandfather likely worked at the mill eighty years before!

Soft florals adorned the tabletops while glistening crystal décor hung from above.  Marissa’s wedding gift to Alex was a solo hula, choreographed by Marissa’s kumu hula (instructor) in Seattle. Marissa has been dancing hula for twenty five years;  so being able to share it on their wedding day was truly special for her.  We couldn’t agree more. Sending our best wishes to this lovely, lovely couple!
