A First Class Wedding on Front Street - Shalon & Eric's Maui Wedding Preview

When Shalon & Eric met at work, they never could have dreamed that just four years later they would be exchanging vows on a Maui beach with their son at their feet playing in the sand.  It is amazing how life works!  They were married in a ceremony just before sunset at Lahaina shores beach with their close friends and family in attendance. After the ceremony they dined at I'o on their oceanfront lanai and enjoyed wedding cake and tropical cocktails.  A beautiful Maui wedding for a beautiful couple!

The couple didn't want to see each other before the ceremony, so they had a quick moment holding hands around the corner before leaving to the beach :)

From the Bride… Although Ben and I briefly met through work over a decade ago in Taiwan, we would not have the chance to become close friends until many years later. Through several twists of fate, we fell in love in New York City, and Ben ended up proposing to me over a rainbow as we flew over Niagara Falls in a helicopter! I had always dreamed of having a wedding that is both modern and intimate. As Ben and I had friends and family scattered all over the world, we wanted our wedding to be memorable and worth traveling for. After doing extensive research, I fell in love with the magnificent Oceanside Wedding Chapel and grounds of the Grand Wailea Resort in Maui, Hawaii.
I was also lucky to find the right vendors that I had envisioned for the important day. Jill LaFleur provided thoughtful inspirations to complement my desire to have a “Lilac and Lemonade” color palette for my wedding, in the form of delicate Hawaiian table decorations and the elegant lemonade stand. Della Peacock personally presented me with the bridal bouquet of my dreams, featuring some of my favorite flowers, from David Austin roses to peonies. Mira did an incredible job with all our hair as well as makeup and made the mood of the day light and full of laughter. All the exquisite flowers, pretty decorations and wonderful emotions were beautifully captured by Rebecca and Jonathan from Tamiz Photography. I could not have asked for a better team for my wedding.
For the ceremony, we were fortunate to have had such a gorgeous day! It was a comfortably breezy 75 degrees with barely a cloud in the sky. The chapel location was as beautiful as we had imagined with our decorated chuppah overlooking the deep blue ocean. It was such a very happy day for both us as we celebrated our nuptials in front of nearly 50 friends and family who had traveled from all over the world to share our special moment. We both feel very lucky to have each other and to have the ones we loved the most bear witness to our matrimony in a place that will always be memorable in our hearts.

Q and A with the Bride:
Q. How and/or why did you decide on Maui, and your venue, for your wedding?
A. Maui: I grew up vacationing in Maui and when Daniel and I started dating in high School, Daniel joined in on the family vacation fun and was hooked! As adults, we’ve continued the Maui vacation tradition and have returned several times on our own. Maui has a special place in our hearts, one filled with warm sunny memories of family and friends and because we knew we wanted a beach destination wedding, Maui was the perfect fit!
Olowalu Plantation House: We knew we wanted to get married in Maui but didn’t have the slightest idea of where to get married. I was hoping to have the wedding in a private location on the water and stumbled upon the Olowalu Plantation House venue website. After browsing the photos and reading the reviews, I booked Olowalu immediately – without even seeing it! It is an amazing venue and it was perfect for the kind of wedding we wanted.
Q. How and/or why did you decide on Kaua Wedding Photography for your wedding?
A. Kaua came highly recommended by our wedding coordinators Lori and Jackie from Tropical Maui Weddings. I was considering several photographers but we decided on Kaua after seeing his beautiful and creative work and reading lots of reviews. His pricing was also very reasonable compared to some quotes I had received for similar packages. When we met with Kaua about 3 months before the wedding on a quick visit to Maui, I was sold! He was so easy to be around, friendly and professional and was exactly the same on the wedding day. Daniel and I felt extremely comfortable with him on the big day and we are delighted with the beautiful memories he captured for us that day.
Q. What were some of the highlights of your wedding?
A. Highlights of the wedding included:
- Spontaneous wedding guest dance party on the lawn that took place in the middle of dinner – Marty Dread rocked the lawn and was taking requests throughout the cocktail hour and dinner. Daniel and I were taking sunset pictures with Kaua on the small jetty in front of Olowalu and missed the dancing but we could sure hear and see all the singing and dancing from a couple hundred yards away! It brought smiles to all our faces to see everyone having such a good time dancing and singing before the official dancing portion of the evening was even suppose to start.
- Another highlight was the fire dancer and drummer performance. Halfway through the reception, we surprised our guests with a fire dance show. We had DJ Del announce to the guests that they were needed on the lawn and just as he finished with the announcement, the drums started and our fire dancer appeared. All our guests were so surprised and several guests said it was one of the best fire shows they had seen. It was such a great performance and we all had a great time!
Q. What would be your advice to those who are planning their destination wedding right now?
A. If you can make it work for your budget, hire a wedding coordinator to help with logistics and to provide recommendations for vendors. I plan several large events a year in my job and consider myself a very organized and detail oriented person but to have someone helping you along the way with all the little things (and big things) was incredibly valuable. The recommendations for vendors alone were worth every penny we spent on the wedding coordinator (which was flat rate and very reasonable). Wedding coordinators have so much experience working with vendors and most have a “favorite vendor list” they’ve amassed over the years based on reliability, quality, etc. and every vendor our coordinator recommended was fantastic, provided amazing service and exceeded our expectations – especially Kaua!
