Hawaii Destination Wedding in Maui
This gorgeous beach wedding on Maui with Troy and Olivia encompasses everything I love about Hawaii weddings.
The Wedding Day started getting ready with the Bridesmaids in the hotel. The bridesmaids wore the cutest tropical bridal robes which was the perfect touch to this Maui wedding day. Olivia put on her lace wedding dress with a flower Lei crown and she looks so beautiful. The boys got ready and put on their tan Grooms and groomsmen suits before the ceremony.
The Lei Ceremony on Ironwood Beach, Maui
Olivia and Troy have been going to Maui for a few years now. Troy’s family has been going for even longer. Hawaii is such a special place for these two. They knew that getting married on Maui would be the perfect place to tie the knot.
The wedding ceremony was held on the sand overlooking the Blue Hawaiian ocean. This was a destination wedding dream. They did a traditional lei ceremony which is one of the most well-known and popular of all Hawaiian wedding traditions. For the lei ceremony, the couple presents the leis to one another by placing the lei around their lover’s neck and then giving a kiss. One of my favorite parts about these ceremonies is that bonus- kissing occurs early and often in Hawaiian wedding ceremonies!
There were SO MANY bonus kisses throughout their ceremony! Every time was so freaking magical. Everyone cheered each time and I swear it just made Olivia and Troy even giddier. This needs to happen more… or I just need to photograph more Hawaiian weddings.
After the ceremony, we made our way to the Steeple House for the reception. The wedding reception was decorated so beautifully with Hawaiian flower arrangements, tropical fruit, and the perfect simple decor. It was such a special day celebrating Troy and Olivia!

I’ve noticed that throughout the years there has been a huge pattern in my couples. Each one of my couples is so easy-going and laid back. Their wedding could be a DIY wedding or something more luxurious and each one of them is just so trusting of my vision, the timeline and always so relaxed. Days like these are the ones that make me feel so grateful to do what I do. Troy and Olivia’s destination wedding on Maui
