Irene & Jim had a small and intimate wedding on the shore of Makena Cove, with only their daughter, her closest friend, and their son bearing witness. But that didn’t mean it was quiet! This ceremony encapsulated everything we love about wedding photography in Maui: a beautiful couple and their wedding party having a blast on their Special Day!
The evening was vividly clear, yet the sunlight filtered gently down, casting our couple in a luminous glow. It’s little wonder why Jim & Irene were so excited to say “I do” on Makena Cove, just look at the stunning way the rocky embankment meets the soft blooms on the shoreline.
And while we’re on the topic of stunning, check out this bride! We love the sincere look of awe on Jim’s face the moment he sees Irene in all of her wedding day glory.
That feeling of awe was evergreen with this sweet couple. It remained from the second the ceremony began to the moment the last ray of sun slipped beneath the horizon…
And after getting to know Jim & Irene, we’re positive it will still be there–as fresh and vibrant as ever–years and years and years from now…
These awesome kids were not only dressed like angels, but they also behaved like angels; They were helpful throughout the photo session and waited patiently as we captured beautiful Maui couples portraits of Mom and Dad.
But first, the bouquet toss! There’s nothing quite like this calm and tranquil tradition… where everyone politely applauds the lucky girl who catches the arrangement and offers her smiles and hugs and words of encouragement for her future marriage…
We kid!! It’s the ripping and the pulling that make the toss so legendary! We don’t see it as often these days, so we can’t stop giggling at this dynamic capture! What a perfect visual to summarize the tradition!
Maybe we don’t see it that often because bouquets are becoming more and more gorgeous… we’re loving the white peony and silver shimmer of the eucalyptus.
Not to mention the loving shimmer behind this couple’s eyes. Does this look say everything, or what? Keep scrolling for more of Irene & Jim’s spectacular Maui wedding photos!
