Having visited the island of Maui and SeaWatch Restaurant (now called Gannon's Restaurant), I know first hand the stunning views, delectable food and incredible ambiance the destination provides to couples. It's one of my favorite venues on the island! So when I found out that we had been sent a wedding that took place here, I begged to do the blog post! Plus, the couple, Katie and Ryan, are just too cute for words - so here's a little bit about their big day...

Katie and Ryan decided on a wedding away because they longed for an intimate experience. Coming from Arizona, the couple traveled to the island of Maui for their destination I do's. Wearing a simple sheath gown and a flower tucked behind her ear, Katie couldn't have looked more fresh or radiant on her wedding day.

The ceremony set up was simple and set up on the SeaWatch Restaurant's lower lawn.

With about 30 of their closest friends and family (complete with flower girl and ring bearer), the couple made their union official.

Their photographer, Joanna Tano actually learned a lot about the couple through their cyber meetings and correspondence through one of the most popular social media sites, "I knew Katie was so sweet from our phone conversation a couple of months back. I then got acquainted with her and Ryan on Facebook – what a wonderful way to get to know a bit about my clients!" said Joanna.

Under a canopy of stars, the couple enjoyed their dinner reception with their guests.

Joanna is certainly fond of the couple and enjoyed working with them. She had this to say about her lovely clients, "Katie and Ryan were so wonderful to work with! Their love for one another is so inspiring and beautiful! To top it off they look like models that should be on the cover of a magazine. I am so happy for the them and I wish them all the best in their new life together as husband and wife."
Here, here Joanna! We second that!
