A MAUI WEDDING ON THE WATER

february 3, 2014

Destination weddings in Maui are usually set on the beach, but Anna and Kalle wanted to do things a bit differently. After Kalle’s brother was married in Maui and honeymooned on the Big Island, it didn’t take much convincing that a Hawaiian wedding was right for them. “The idea of eloping is so romantic, we decided to do the same,” Anna said. Sailing provided the perfect venue, with more privacy than a traditional beach wedding. Since Kalle had learned to sail while studying at Berkeley, it was the ideal alternative.

I met up with Anna and Kalle in Lahaina, where we began our photo session in the historic Banyan Tree Park before boarding the sleek blue hulled Shadowfax for the wedding. Cobalt-colored heels were Anna’s “something blue” and she carried a beautiful bouquet of light pink roses in two shades. While sailing, the breeze whipped the bride’s hair around, giving her a pretty, natural windblown look. After munching on a simple, healthy spread that included fresh veggies, ripe strawberries and cashews, the couple toasted with champagne at sunset.
