Anyone who has traveled to Hawaii will tell you that the island paradise has a magical sense about it. Unlike anywhere else in the U.S., Hawaii grants you a true taste of the tropics. It brings forth mental images of crashing waves, tall swaying palms, velvety green mountains, stunning sunsets and rainbows streaking across the sky. If there’s one island that meets this quintessential description – it’s Maui. Inspired by the exotic and varied natural beauty of Maui, this photoshoot highlights the topography and tropical flora that makes this destination wedding and honeymoon location so popular. If you're feeling inspired, which we hope you are, please check out the information below for all of the talented vendors involved in making this tropical dream a reality. We've also included a special video below that shows you even more visual inspiration from the day! A special thanks to the photographer/art director/stylist Amanda Julca, designer/planner/coordinator Kasey Conyers with Bliss Wedding & Event DesignJackson Durham for the floral design, and our venue/host hotel/rentals/catering Montage Kapalua Bay.
