 I'm absolutely over the moon to finally share my first editorial wedding inspiration and what a better way to start with the most sticking good looking soul surfer couple I’ve ever met. When I knew of Schell and Morgan crossing the ocean from California for a little Maui vacay and a 5 year Anniversary was just around the corner, I thought about the perfect excuse to make some magic happen to beat the drums for the occasion is the most fab way!    Inspiration came from a hand made vintage crocheted table cloth and naturally flowed into a beautiful boho chic style from there. I had envisioned and designed this amazing sexy wedding gown (yes finally all those years of watching project runway paid off!) and worked closely with Erica Goldsmith, owner of Couture Events in Maui to create this uber chic boho styled shoot, hair and makeup by the so talented artist Jessica Waite who's also such an amazing creative mind, and jewelry designer Sudaura Perreault. We wanted something romantic, bohemian, and with some chic sophistication on a Maui beach with the bright turquoise ocean as the backdrop. Adding custom made gold with white crystal jewelry from Sun-Dora really created a more glamorous bohemian look that we all loved.  The DIY pallet table rested on top of sheep skin rugs which created an fabulous romantic setting. A white muslin runner flanked the table which hosted a mix match of assorted vessels, some were DIY gold dipped vases, which added a modern and sophisticated touch to the bohemian woven candle holders. We also used antique amber vessels to hold bright romantic florals and added some local raw coconuts to give it a local flair. Cake Fanatics made a deliciously perfect hand painted mini cake set on top of a gold pineapple as the serving platter.

Kayla and Braden's wedding was my first of 2015, and it sure was one to remember! They decided to have an intimate elopement at the glorious Haiku Mill located on the northeastern coast of Maui. The former sugar mill was transformed into a lush, dreamy property that combines Old Hawaii with glamorous French touches and is consistently ranked as one of the top venues in the U.S. and the entire world. If you want to get married with just the two of you in grand style, this is the way to go! I'm so thankful to be on the Haiku Mill's exclusive list of photographers and hope you can sense my excitement of photographing these sweeties on their special day. 

Kayla and Braden came all the way from Canada and were ecstatic when they saw Haiku Mill in person. They couldn't stop smiling and looked like little kids at Disneyland, like this was the happiest place on earth. It was so fitting because Kayla loves the French aesthetic. Braden even pointed it out when they were getting ready saying, "Babe, this looks so much like your place." When couples are this in love, stoked on their venue, and proud of all their wedding details, it gives me butterflies and makes me feel so fortunate to be the one who captures the breathtaking moments of the day.
