Maui elopements will always have a special place in our hearts. There’s nothing more romantic than an intimate ceremony in a gorgeous location where the focus is solely on the couple and nothing else. A Maui elopement can also save you a lot of time, money and stress. Without the excessive time and money spent on planning a big wedding back home, an elopement allows you to relax and enjoy a personal, intimate celebration that is completely your own. Monica and Jonathan decided that a romantic Maui elopement was exactly their style and hired Makena Weddings to take care of all of the logistics of their big day.
Monica and Jonathan make it a point to take an annual trip together to locations that neither of them have been to before. Maui had been on their bucket list for years so when they started discussing locations for their elopement it was an easy decision. They felt that it would be incredibly romantic to be able to get married and honeymoon in such a beautiful place and we couldn’t agree with them more.
The couple chose the gorgeous Kukahiko Estate as their Maui wedding venue and it became their own personal slice of paradise for the day. Just the two of them alone on the beautifully manicured lawn overlooking the ocean as they said their I Dos, promising to love each other for the rest of their lives. There really is nothing more romantic than that.
As the couple were married without any guests in attendance, they hired Dmitri and Sandra Photography for 2-hours of coverage to make sure that every moment of their wedding day was covered. From intimate getting ready photos with the bride to their private first look before the ceremony and impossibly romantic photos at sunset, everything was captured perfectly in order for the couple to share their experience with their family and friends back home.
We are so excited to share the beautiful images of their wedding day with you below, please take a look and join us in congratulating this beautiful couple in love!
