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 Destination Wedding at Gannon's | Wailea, Hawaii

Maui Wedding Photographer, Naomi Levit, captures Wailea sunset

Lyndsey and Ken had an intimate wedding at Gannon's with close friends and family. The day was just the right mix of classic and tropical touches. The coral, orange, and pink color scheme really popped against the gorgeous scenery, but I especially loved how they incorporated personal details into their wedding. Ken works for North Whatcom Fire and Rescue, which is a huge part of their lives, so he wore a medallion under his shirt while Lyndsey had a patch on the inside of her dress. They also had a cute firefighter cake topper. 

I love to document all the emotions, special moments, and details that goes into each special day. I truly believe it's important to remember that your wedding day should really reflect you as a couple. Whether that means an oceanside wedding venue with family and friends or an adventurous elopement in the jungle, I'm thrilled to tag along and capture the memories.

here's what Bre said after receiving her wedding photos :)

"Naomi is AMAZING!!! I did a lot of research on the types of pictures I wanted for my wedding and sent many of them to her. She managed to get every photo I wanted and more! Naomi was so much fun to work with and wasn't afraid to try different angles to get just the right look. We are beyond thrilled with all of our wedding photos and can't wait to go back for one of our anniversaries to get more pictures with Naomi. Highly recommend Naomi for any of your photo needs."
