‘This is For Us’ – Michele & Brian’s Maui Elopement Photography


Last Updated on April 16, 2024 by Karma Hill

When Michele & Brian got engaged, they quickly felt uninspired to have a big traditional wedding. All the planning and expenses didn’t seem worth it. So, true to their adventurous spirits, they decided to elope. We’re glad we could capture their Maui Elopement Photography. 

We’re going to share some sweet stories and planning tips from this amazing couple, but first, let’s see some of their photos!

Beach Wedding Style Inspiration & Maui Elopement Photography

The great thing about Maui Beach weddings is that you can bring your own personal style, no matter how formal or casual it is. But we especially love Michele & Brian’s elopement fashion. It strikes the perfect balance between dressy and beachy — it looks breezy yet chic. 

And doesn’t Michele look like a goddess drenched in flowers? She wore a lace dress with off-shoulder floral straps. And then we added a fresh bouquet, lei, and haku flower crown from Dellables. The result is a blossoming, bright, tropical look that highlights Michelle’s glistening personality. 

Of course, Brian looks great too! His light linen suit fit his relaxed yet thoughtful presence, and his lei and boutonniere added the perfect tropical touch. 

Looking for Maui elopement photography inspiration? We love how these two presented themselves for a dreamy ceremony-for-two.

The Ultimate Getaway

A Hawaii elopement offers the best of everything: a vacation + wedding all in one, some of the world’s best scenery, easy planning, and an unforgettable experience. Plus, you get great Maui Elopement Photography that you’ll treasure forever. 

But what made Michele & Brian decide that this unique wedding was right for them? Here’s what Michelle had to say:

“People always say ‘You have to have the wedding YOU want,’ and then proceed to tell you how they think your wedding should be. We decided to elope after the headaches of trying to plan a traditional wedding. We will have a Happily-Ever-After Party later in the summer for friends and family, but the marriage part – that’s just for us.

We love this! Michele & Brian had their dream elopement but still are celebrating with their loved ones. Now that they’ve had their meaningful, private “I Do,” they can truly enjoy their reception back home. And they can also share their Maui Elopement photography!
