Being a Hawaii elopement and wedding photographer on Maui has been a wild ride, and I've been lucky to snap some seriously epic love stories. But let me tell you about Alyssa and Nick's Montage Kapalua Bay Resort wedding – This Hawaii wedding venue is unreal. It's like stepping into a luxurious and tropical haven. Their wedding planner Kristin from Opihi Love is a total wizard! With her magic touch, Alyssa and Nick's day turned into a seriously gorgeous affair, bursting with an elegant vibe with greenery and white wedding decor. I'm stoked to give you a peek behind the lens and share all the incredible moments with you.
A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
Alyssa and Nick's paths crossed when they were just teenagers, 16 and 17 years old, thanks to Alyssa's cousins in Minnesota. But she lived in New Mexico back then! Talk about long-distance love from the get-go! Fast forward six months, and Nick came down to meet her in person. For over 11 years, he's been persistently chasing after her heart. Down the line, he pops the question most dreamily, surrounded by her whole family on the sandy shores of Wailea, with Maui Luxe Picnics making the scene even more magical. And after eight long years of being miles apart, they finally closed the distance and settled in Scottsdale, AZ, which her parents and sisters call home. Alyssa made it evident that when he married her, he would marry the whole crew, as they're one tight-knit bunch! They were counting down the days to make their dream wedding a reality.

GETTING READY FOR THE CEREMONY
Their wedding day was an absolute vibe! Seriously, happiness was overflowing. The magic started with their first look at the charming stone wall. Then their intimate ceremony was set right on the point overlooking the endless ocean and the stunning Kapalua Bay beach. After their ceremony, we gathered with friends and family for a little cocktail hour. When the sun began to set, we captured some of the dreamiest bride and groom photos at the cliff house. Of course, we couldn't resist heading down to the beach for those final moments of bliss as the sun dipped below the horizon.
