As Amanda and Johnny began to plan their beachside elopement, they knew they needed to find an experienced Maui wedding planner to help give them A Dream Wedding. Amanda and Johnny loved their trips to Maui, where they could unplug and unwind in the warm tropical ocean kissed air. They knew it would make the perfect setting for an intimate beachside elopement.
Johnny stood waiting, the ocean behind him, and their three children beside him, as Amanda gracefully approached. Her dress was beautifully beaded with sparkling floral embellishments, and the lace skirt bounced and waved in the wind. Her bare feet pressed into the sand as she pressed on towards her love.
A local priest spoke words of hope and encouragement and guided the couple through an exchange of leis, vows, and wedding rings. As Amanda and Johnny were pronounced man and wife, the ukulele began to play jubilantly.
It was an intimate ceremony in front of each other, their kids, and the sunrise on this warm Maui morning. As Amanda and Johnny shared their first wedded kiss, their kids jumped for joy. It was the perfect ceremony for Amanda and Johnny, small, easy, and all about the love they share for each other.
Special thanks to the vendors that made this elopement magical!
