I’m so thrilled to share images from Tiffaney and Chase’s wedding in Maui with everyone! These two are some of the most adventurous, nicest, genuine, fun-loving couples I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and working with. You might remember them from their sexy engagement session in Vegas I posted here or you might recognize Chase from the 2012 WSOP. They chose to share the celebration of their vows with their closest friends and family on Maui’s west side, hosting a weekend of sun-drenched activities. I was lucky enough to document their weekend, including an amazing trash-the-Vera I’m posting separately.
To start things off, a touching and emotional rehearsal/reunion dinner at Longhi’s. I’m finding that rehearsal dinners are where I really get to know my couples – especially ones with an open mic! With so many personal and embarrassing stories, the truth of my couples’ relationships reveal themselves. I’m able to witness and learn what it means to be in their inner circle, the jokes they share, and the joy they bring each other. It’s an amazing experience for me, bringing me closer to my couples and meeting their guests for the weekend.
The wedding day took place at Olowalu Plantation House – a gorgeous and subtle property located right next to the water. Tiffaney’s mermaid Vera and Jimmy Choo’s fit in well with the classic decor of the house.
Meanwhile, Chase and his guys relaxed and soaked up their surrounding at the Majestic Maui Estate.
One thing that was loud and clear during the wedding was the significance and closeness of their families. I love moments where parents show how proud they are while their kids show how grateful they are.
A lavender send off – the entire ceremony smelled SO good.
It was bright out.
Tiffaney and her friends – beautiful inside and out.
Before the introductions, I caught a quiet moment of Tiffaney and Chase.
Darren surprised the wedding with an authentic luau, complete with coconuts and fire breathers!
Come back tomorrow to check out Tiffaney and Chase’s epic trash the dress. I’d hate to be Vera Wang after seeing these photos.
