We’re obsessed with the regal yet intimate ambiance of Jacquelyn & Kyle’s Wailea beach wedding in Maui. The bride and groom clearly have an eye for detail, lacing unique and personal touches throughout the affair and layering the sentimental with the sophisticated, making for a ceremony that’s impossible to forget.
Together for over a decade, Jacquelyn and Kyle first met when their fathers casually introduced them. The act was innocent and between colleagues, both dads simply wanting to get to know the other’s family and form a deeper friendship … little did they know the bond it would forge wouldn’t just be between them! The moment the couple met there was “instant chemistry,” as Jacquelyn’s father so lovingly put it during his reception toast. And looking over these vivid captures, that instant chemistry is clearly still steaming in its beaker!
The bride and groom took in the views of the Wailea coast as they prepped for the occasion in the spacious rooms of the 5-star Fairmont Kea Lani hotel.
As an utterly heartfelt symbol of honor and love, Jacquelyn found precious ways to include her late mother into the ceremony with a picture charm for her bouquet and a framed portrait of her mother on her wedding day…
We were beyond touched and took care to capture these poignant details.
We treasured capturing this mother-and-daughters shot… Jacquelyn’s sister, Liz, acted as her bridesmaid, holding her hand as they walked down to the Polo beach ceremony and ensuring that all was as perfect as could be.
These sisters are so intertwined, in fact, that it was on Liz’s wedding day when Kyle first proposed to Jacquelyn. The morning of the ceremony, Kyle swept her away to a special waterfall in the mountains… but it wasn’t just any waterfall…
Jacquelyn’s mother had often taken her to that very spot and the memories of the rushing waters and rich earthy smells have always held a special place in her heart. With the majestic sprays misting the air between them, Kyle asked Jacquelyn to be his wife… and the rest of the story follows…
Mahalo nui loa, Jacquelyn & Kyle for trusting us with your beautiful and heartfelt Wailea Beach Wedding … we wish you all the best in the years to come…
