Tropical Maui, Hawaii wedding at The Ritz Carlton Kapalua
A little over a year ago I had the pleasure of photographing Cameron Propose to the love of his life, Stephanie, at The Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay. A year later and we all headed out to Maui to get them married! The day before the wedding we golf carted around the Ritz Carlton Kapalua in the rain, scouting for the most perfect spots for their wedding pictures the next day. The Ritz Carlton Kapalua has to be the most dreamy Maui wedding venue because of all the greenery, palm trees, cliffside views and of course the beaches. Every spot was more amazing then the last spot. The day of the wedding called for rain and thunder storms so we braced for that tropical storm to come through at any time. Cam and Steph actually moved their ceremony up an hour in the hope of beating the rain. They got married in a cliffside ceremony above the water while it poured. Having a Hawaii wedding you have to be aware of the chance of that tropical weather deciding to come in whenever. Everyone was such troopers as they watched Cam and Steph commit to each other for forever. It was such a beautiful ceremony! After their I do’s we headed inside to regroup out of the rain. The great thing about destination weddings is that everyone was staying at the Ritz so we all had the chance to change and dry off before the rest of the wedding festivities. It also helps if one of your bridesmaids is an amazing makeup artist and can do hair! As we tried to rethink locations, the sun came out just in time to run down to the beach for photos. After the bridal party photos we headed to the cliffs for some bridals right as the sun set. It was perfect! I’m so glad they got the chance to get some photos before their wedding was over. They ended their wedding with a little reception inside where they had great food, even better speeches and the most perfect first dance.
I’m so thankful for these two for trusting me to capture their Maui wedding and for rolling with what came their way to make the most of their wedding day. Congrats Cam and Steph!!
