I’m Forever Yours – Areli & Raul’s Hawaii Wedding Photography


Last Updated on April 30, 2024 by Karma Hill

Areli and Raul were raised in Maui and have lived here for a significant portion of their lives. Their parents and close family members also call this island home. Our gorgeous couple wanted to tie the knot where they met, so their loved ones could celebrate with them! Above all, their Hawaii wedding photography showcases every romantic moment and delightful detail from this sunset affair. Continue scrolling to experience this event for yourself!

Areli and Raul’s wedding was the ideal mix between bohemian and chic styles! Since our stunning couple adores darker shades, they went with deep tones for their color scheme. You can see how beautifully the light coral, intense green, and rich maroon hues complement one another in the arch florals. Then the reception table has the perfect balance of colors! We like how elegantly the delicate shades from the flowers and deep tones from the dishes contrast with one another.

The Romantic Hawaii Wedding Photography

Gannon’s restaurant was the location for the ceremony, and it created a fairytale scene for this wedding! You can see how breathtaking the lush grass, sweeping ocean views, and tropical foliage are. Afterward, the reception was on Gannon’s lower lawn. We like how the lofty palms and vivid greenery made this spot look dreamy! Above the table, you’ll see how the festoon lights enhance the magical ambiance.

Our charming couple met when Areli and her family began attending Raul’s church. Their minister, who is also their Pastor, conducted their ceremony in Spanish. It is always heartwarming to see couples incorporate their unique style and culture into their wedding — and this was no different! Areli and Raul’s special day represents them as a pair, and their Hawaii wedding photography effortlessly captures this enchanting event!

Our Couple’s Story

Areli and Raul were raised in Maui and went to the same high school. Although, their paths never crossed until Areli attended Raul’s church in May 2017! When Raul first saw her, he thought to himself: “one day, she’ll be my girlfriend.” However, Raul didn’t get the courage to talk to Areli until September 2019.

Eventually, this fascinating couple became best friends because they’d serve in the same church ministries! By August 2020, Raul had gotten permission to initiate an intimate relationship with Areli from her parents. Finally, on August 21, 2020, this radiant duo made it official!
