Claire and Sean's Intimate Maui Wedding at Olowalu Plantation House

intimate-maui-wedding-at-olowalu-plantation-house_0400.jpg

Claire and Sean wanted to have an intimate Maui wedding with their family and close friends. They’re fellow Oregonians, so we immediately connected. If you’ve ever lived in Oregon then you know the special bond we all have. :)

Olowalu Plantation House is one of my favorite wedding venues on Maui and it’s perfect for small, intimate weddings. I love the old, antique house and the endless number of backdrops for photos. It’s private and right on the ocean, so basically perfect for a wedding in Hawaii!

One of my favorite moments of the day was when the bride was pooped on by a bird before the ceremony. We were all cracking up and dying laughing. :) I made sure to get a photo. Scroll down to see haha. It’s good luck on your wedding day right? I also loved that they chose a non traditional wedding cake…a donut! Was such a fun idea and they had several varieties from Donut Dynamite to share with their guests. Their ingredients are locally sourced from our beautiful island on Maui.

Huge thanks to Makena Weddings for a lovely evening!!

Maui Beach Wedding at Ironwoods Beach | Hawaii Wedding Photographer

maui beach wedding at ironwoods beach by maui wedding photographer naomi levit

Remy and Brennan originally planned a Maui adventure elopement for their special day.  Buuut, after telling family they were heading to Hawaii everyone wanted to be a part of the celebration!  So, they decided to have a simple Maui beach wedding with their immediate family.  Remy's grandparents even flew all the way to the Hawaiian islands for their wedding day.  They were all in tears after the ceremony and it felt really special that they were able to make it.  Of course I teared up too cuz I'm a total sap!  

Peter Dagupion officiated the ceremony and brought such a happy vibe.  He has such a genuine personality and definitely brings the aloha spirit.  It makes me happy just being in his presence. :)  Love and Beauty Maui did Remy's hair and makeup and gave her a nice, natural look.  Was perfect for her.  Remy's mother created her beautiful bouquet.  I was super impressed!

After we finished their wedding photos at Ironwoods Beach they headed back to their condo for a lovely dinner with family.  They decided to have a local chef prepare dinner for them so they could continue the laid back, intimate vibe.  Private Maui Chef prepared an amazing dinner with fresh, local ingredients.  Their menu sounds sooo good.  I've considered having them prepare a meal for me and hubby just for the hell of it!  Highly recommend them if you're looking for a private chef on Maui.
