Sunset is the most popular time to have a Maui wedding on the beach, but morning is a great choice for a few reasons. First of all, the lighting is glorious and a favorite time for photographers. You’ll be able to truly appreciate your surroundings and there will be no worries about having a nice sunset. The feeling of a brand new day is a beautiful way to start fresh in your marriage, letting go of any past hurt and resentment. Plus, you will be able to soak up a full day as a married couple right after your ceremony. If you’re eloping, this leaves time for a fun adventure like ziplining or a helicopter tour and also allows you to enjoy sunset during a romantic dinner.
Laura and Scott came from the UK to have a morning elopement on the shores of Maui. They wanted a beach that was stunning, private, and authentic to Hawaii. Mokapu Beach made a convenient choice since they were staying at Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort and were able to walk from the hotel.
We loved that Laura and Scott chose to dress formally for the occasion, and those getting ready moments were documented by Rodrigo. After a joyous first look, it was time for the ceremony. We had hoped the beach would still be quiet in the morning. However hotel guests had already gathered, so we walked over to a little cove, which ended up giving the ceremony the intimate feeling they wanted all along.
Kind words from the Bride and Groom:
Scott and I wanted to thank you for all you did for us on the run up to our wedding and on the day too. You were above and beyond expectations and it really felt we had a friend with us there supporting us.
It was just so special and we’re in love with our day and everything that went with it.
Thank you again from our hearts.
